“Globalisation, in every sphere of our lives, means that we focus less and less on what is local,” says Rebecca Camhi, owner of one of our favourite galleries in Athens. Since its conception in 1995, the Rebecca Camhi Gallery has played a crucial role in bridging the gap between the foreign and the native. Over the years, it has introduced the Greek audience to internationally acclaimed contemporary artists like Ross Bleckner, Nan Goldin, and Julian Opie, while also providing a platform for Greek artists to showcase their talent on the global stage. Currently, the gallery is hosting Suddenly Last Summer, an exhibition which places a strong emphasis on promoting local artistic talent. Featuring renowned names such as Takis alongside emerging talents like Dimitris Getsis and Zisis Bliatkas, it showcases a diverse range of artistic mediums, from resin sculptures, to video-game inspired large-scale paintings. A great opportunity to check out the gorgeous neoclassical townhouse the gallery is housed in and also rub shoulders with some Metaxourgio grit.
