Yoki Attitudes suggests: ReMap3 An international contemporary art programmeKerameikos-Metaxourgeio, Athens, Greece 12 September - 30 October 2011 ReMap3 Opening:Monday, 12/9, 17:00 - 22:00 ADMISSION Free

ReMap is an international contemporary art platform open and free to the public, which is held bi annually in the area of Kerameikos-Metaxourgeio in Athens, in tandem with the Athens Biennial. It is organized by ReMapKM, a not-for-profit organization.

ReMapKM's goal is to create an alternative platform for the production and experiencing of contemporary art within the urban context, to present an interactive environment within a cultural framework and to enhance Athens's positioning in the international contemporary art scene.

In its third incarnation, this year's ReMap3 will be serving as a meeting place for over 250 artists, art historians and curators from around the world. KM's own artistic community will also be represented within the 30 independent and the 25 gallery projects comprising this year's ReMap.

The 50 plus exhibitions and projects hosted by ReMap3 will be presenting visitors an alternative route in KM, an area that is developing into a contemporary cultural hub in the centre of Athens and is home to the new Athens Municipal Art Gallery, the Athens Film Archive, the Kunsthalle Athena, The Breeder and Rebecca Camhi galleries, the ATOPOS Contemporary Visual Culture (ATOPOS CVC), Ε.Δ.Ω, Frown Tails, and a host of theatres including the new Synergy-o experimental stage and the internationally renowned Attis Theatre, which has been active in the area for over 20 years. Over the six weeks of the ReMap3 programme, all these institutions will coexist with ReMap3 exhibitions and projects, which are to be temporarily housed in unutilized spaces throughout the area. Far removed from the classic exhibition spaces provided by museums, art fairs or galleries, these spaces are neoclassical and 1970s buildings, courtyards, vacant plots and even detached balconies.

This year's programme includes a number of young artists from all over the world, as well as institutions presenting their work in Greece for the first time. This will, strengthen ReMap's dynamic presence as a platform for emerging artists and institutions on the international contemporary art scene.

ReMap 3 is under the aegis of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture & Tourism and the City of Athens, and is part of the former's "Athens Every Week" programme.
