In a rapidly evolving digital age, the boundaries between online and offline experiences are becoming increasingly blurred. Embracing this intersection of virtual and physical realms, our exhibition concept, aptly titled O/O, seeks to explore the dynamic interplay between these two dimensions of existence.

At the heart of O/O lies a dual exhibition format, showcasing artworks both in the digital realm of our website and the urban environment of the Paxos island. This unique approach not only broadens accessibility but also invites audiences to engage with art in diverse and unconventional settings.

ONLINE EXHIBITION- Transcend geographical barriers

The online component of the exhibition serves as a virtual gallery, offering a curated selection of artworks accessible to audiences worldwide at the click of a button. Through intuitive navigation, visitors are invited to explore a diverse range of artistic expressions.

OFFLINE EXHIBITION - Transforming public spaces into Galleries

Complementing the virtual experience, the offline component of the exhibition transforms the streets of the villages of Paxos island into open-air galleries, breathing life into public spaces and fostering serendipitous encounters with art. Against the backdrop of natural landscapes and urban environments, artworks* emerge as captivating landmarks, inviting passersby to pause, reflect, and engage with their surroundings.

By decentralizing the exhibition space and bringing art into the fabric of everyday life, O/O blurs the boundaries between art and reality, encouraging spontaneous interactions and forging connections between artists, audiences, and the public sphere.

*All selected artworks will be printed and Installed by the team of Paxos Biennale.

Bridging the Gap

O/O not only celebrates the diversity of artistic expression but also challenges traditional notions of exhibition spaces, inviting audiences to reconsider their relationship with art in an increasingly digital world. By seamlessly integrating online and offline experiences, this concept transcends dichotomies, fostering a holistic approach to artistic engagement that is immersive, inclusive, and transformative.

In essence, O/O represents a bold exploration of the intersections between the virtual and the physical, the digital and the tangible, the global and the local. Through this innovative exhibition format, we invite audiences to embark on a journey of discovery, where art transcends boundaries and resonates with the essence of human experience.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and celebrating the diverse talents of artists exploring the intersections of online and offline experiences. Join us as we embark on this journey of discovery and transformation!
