NEON + MAI are partnering to present As One in Athens which will consist of the Abramovi? Method, newly commissioned performance pieces by Greek artists, and an extensive public program of lectures, workshops, discussions and other public participatory events. The largest and most ambitious project dedicated to performance art in Greece to date, As One will place this contemporary art form in the spotlight in order to engage and inspire the Greek public. With this collaboration, NEON and MAI aim to provide a platform and help foster a new generation of Greek performance artists.
