CHEAPART Thessaloniki 2005

Where were you in December 1995 - at the launch of CHEAPART? Since 1998 the first CHEAPART exhibition of the year showcasing small-scale works has been held in Thessaloniki with the collaboration of Mylos. CHEAPART radically change the way we perceive art in Greece. Today it’s 10th anniversary event brings on many useful conclusions, unimaginable at the time – yet most successfully applied over these years. If art and communication go together, has anyone been able to prove it? Is the artwork a consumer product? Can literally anyone acquire an artwork? Could an art context gallery actually be designed to exist and function in Greece? Have 235 artists actually participated in the CHEAPART exhibitions? Can an arts organization survive without being a for-profit company and without ever receiving any form of state or public funding? Can it be that CHEAPART events reach an unprecedented number of visitors? What makes it so popular? Is it possible to create new conditions for the production of artistic work, and avoid predefined procedures? Could anyone ever imagine that Greece's national participation at the recent Venice Biennale and Biennale of Sao Paulo were previously supported and showcased at CHEAPART 6 months prior to these presentations? Are these coincidences to frequent to be random? In any case, perhaps we cannot recall what you did in December 1995, but we now know where you will be on June 25th, 2005.
