This new cycle of cultural mediation activities, developed in collaboration with Sofia Kouloukouri*, places artists and their approaches at its heart.
For each exhibition of the Center, adults and children, from 12 years old, are invited to meet different artists to experiment the multiplicity of formats of today’s art, such as video, sound or performance.

Geometry and patterns in painting
Workshop with Sarah Watson
In this workshop with American painter and architect Sarah Watson, the audience will first get a brief introduction to hard-edge painting – an artistic movement within geometric abstraction – by learning about the works of artists such as Sophie Taeuber Arp, Bridget Riley and Sarah Watson herself.
Sarah Watson will introduce participants to perspective, overlapping and superimposing shapes, and other optical effects to create geometric paintings with a ‘deep space’ feel.
For this workshop, the artist proposes to use her own working techniques: scotch, knife, graphite and acrylic on wood panel.
*Sofia Kouloukouri is an artist and writer. With a background in film studies and art history she works as a script-coach with filmmakers and aspiring novelists and writes articles on contemporary art and cinema for cultural magazines in Athens and Geneva.
