REPORT FROM ATHENS
by Chris Bors
Like the little engine that could, the Greek art scene continues to go full steam ahead, despite its less-than-central position in the global art world. For my visit to Athens this fall, the weather was quite warm during the day, and the only obstacle I faced in my quest for contemporary art was the rather pleasant distraction of the city’s natural beauty and ancient sites. By purchasing daily passes for the Metro, Athens’ impeccably clean subway system, I was able to travel everywhere and save money for lunches of meze
(an assortment of starters) in outdoor cafés in the Psirri area -- the perfect fuel for a full day’s gallery going.
