Don’t leave me this way

22 British and Greek contemporary visual artists reflect on separation

and loss as a result of Brexit.

We are excited to invite you to the opening of the second leg of the exhibition:

Don’t Leave Me This Way, the First Collaboration between The Stash Gallery in London and The Project Gallery in Athens.

Maybe it’s Brexit, maybe it’s a love affair. Is there a right way to leave?

We are 22 Greek and U.K. based artists and, we at least, doubt it!

The initial motivation for this show was my reaction to the Horror of Brexit.

However the theme broadened as hope dwindled and the real issue became apparent. Feelings of loss, separation and nostalgia for the past became the subject.

All of us have left something behind, whether it be childhood, a person, a country or an accord. It’s not all bad, some things are good to let go.

The artists in the show have their own take on separation. It doesn’t have to be all Sturm und Drang. Humour is a common thread to many works in this show, using it to throw some light on a darkening world.

The Project Gallery is an innovative art space located in Athens in the area of Monastiraki, at 3 Normanou Street. We focus on thematic group exhibitions, highlighting current international art production, but our curated program spans the full spectrum of contemporary art, from talks and open discussions to live acts and performances.

We aim to be part of the cultural life of Athens, discover and present the local visual art scene, while through international collaborations and cultural exchanges to create bridges between Greece and abroad for the promotion and diffusion of Greek art globally.

Our creative team brings together and generates young architects, graphic designers, curators and art historians who are involved in the visual arts field, embracing contemporary art. We focus on emerging, original, high quality and alternative artworks, while maintaining respect towards artists, the public and the art world. We aspire to communicate, motivate and grant a crucial meaning to Art, as an alternative attitude to everyday life during these critical times.

Curator: Nicholas Moore in collaboration

with Alexandros Maganiotis, Art Director of The Project Gallery.
