CHEAPART has grated us the indispensable Pavlov's Reflex in regards to Art, a genuine inheritance that can never perish. With this in mind, the month of December is beyond doubt, associated with CHEAPART's annual exhibition – marking the end of the year, and the beginning a new.

CHEAPART 2022 | Desire for Art extends to 1000 sqm. and 5 floors of exhibition space — 10 of art — artworks and projects — performances — screenings — presentations.

From December 12 – 24, artists are invited to present new bodies of work, organizations introduce their creative vision to the public, and curators to discuss their future plans and agenda. The assembly room will host a creative hub and collective panel discussion for artists, curators, culture and arts professionals, writers and the public, who will reflect on the present and future of contemporary art in Athens with concrete examples and applications. At the same time, selected artists who in the recent years have participated in CHEAPART exhibitions, present their current work and the course of their development since the early presentations at CHEAPART.

CHEAPART will perform a public presentation of its freshly pressed 300-page printed edition, which includes sections of the archive, original images and texts from over 400 exhibitions since its founding.
