Exhibition showcases West Attica U. student art work at Athens International Airport

An exhibition of works by University of West Attica students opened at the “Art & Environment” area (Departures Level, Entrance 3) of the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” this week.

The exhibit is free and will remain on the premises until the end of the year (December 31, 2023).

The idea of the present exhibition had as its starting point the Athens International Airport and after going through various stages of processing, it was transferred to the classrooms of the University where it was delivered as an annual monothematic project to the students of the “Visual Art Applications” laboratory of the Department of Photography and Audiovisual Arts of the University of West Attica. 

Student participants enthusiastically embraced the challenge and were engaged, for over a year, in the creation of original works through the collage technique, developing their ideas on the creative axes: Sky, Limited-Unlimited, Countries, Journeys, Nations, Earth, Travel, Space, Border-Borderless, etc. or adopting personal interpretations of concepts and terms. Visual and conceptual approaches followed literal, metaphorical, symbolic, realistic, hyperrealistic or abstract paths or even a combination of some of them. The selected art works of this “journey” are presented at the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” both in wall mounted digital prints and in a continuous stream of images projected on a video.
