The study of the nude form in the age of digital technology is the focus of Unlocked, a new program of events at Athens gallery Atopos Contemporary Visual Culture. Looking at how the Tumblr generation depicts the human body, Atopos Unlocked is a work in progress which will be presented in book form next year, as well as in an exhibition at Atopos’s neo-classical premises in the Metaxourgeio. The event also sees the gallery open the doors to its wider collection, granting visitors access to important works, some shown for the first time.
A key event in the Unlocked program is an open studio called Occupy Atopos. During a series of monthly visits, participating artists will be on site creating original artworks and presenting their portfolios for display, allowing guests a closer look into the creative process. Greek-Ukranian artist David Marinos is first up and will launch Occupy on 29 October, with exhibition days on 5, 12 and 19 November.
