In October 2015, IFAC Athina was established as a satellite studio/project space at 11 Galaxia Street, in the Neos Kosmos neighbourhood of Athens. Having run a seven-year trajectory of tracing and engaging with the multi-layered cartographies of contemporary art, IFAC Athina returns to capturing the uninterrupted immediacy of now through The October Show.

Defining our present-day Octobers, the show brings together theoretical inquiry and art practice to re-address the curatorial process and articulate the historical – social, political, and aesthetic – realities which encompass it.

Under this prism, The October Show is set out as a meta-situationist environment which embraces the uninterrupted flow of energy as the unifying element and appropriates free association as the methodological link between the works and the viewers. In this curatorial endeavour, Athens is the catalyst that communicates the essence of unity of a diverse cross section of artists.

Throughout the exhibition, we will be hosting discussions, screenings, performances.
