Α Michael Ashkin at the kaktos Project, Athens

Κaktos Project is pleased to inaugurate its activities with a solo project by American artist Michael Ashkin.  Michael Ashkin (b.1955) is Chair of the Department of Art at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, and his work has been included amongst others in Documenta 11 and the Whitney Biennial. Solo museum exhibitions include Secession, Vienna and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina. Ashkin’s work is in the permanent collections of major museums including Whitney Museum of Art, New York, San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, Carnegie Museum of Art, MUDAM Luxembourg and others.

Ashkin’s work deals with issues of gentrification and how our notions of space and place are determined by wider political and economic forces. The opening will take place on Saturday 8 February from 12-4pm in the presence of the artist. A catalogue with a text by Bernard Yenelouis will accompany the exhibition.



About Kaktos Project
Kaktos Project is an independent artist-run space, founded by artist Caroline May in order to raise questions about the changing urban landscape of Athens and the forces of gentrification with the aim to empower community and collective action, and communicate ideas about art and civic space through a series of exhibitions, talks and educational activities. The space is located in the centre of Athens, at 38, Cheyden street, in a highly contested area where questions of migration, regeneration and public space are foregrounded. 

With the support of Ios gallery and Kostas Kyriakakis and MACART
