Artists for Athens Pride, and more from Athens Galleries

Last night was the Artists for Athens Pride auction, , which you can read all about at Angelo Says featuring works by Στιβ Γιαννάκος, Zoë Charlton, Χρήστος Δεληδήμος, Χριστίνα Δημητριάδη, Κωνσταντίνος Κακανιάς, Κατερίνα Κανά, Em Kei, Jeremy Kost, Kalup Linzy, Τέο Μιχαήλ, Ντόρα Οικονόμου, Χριστόδουλος Παναγιώτου, Άγγελος Παπαδημητρίου, Μαρία & Ντόρα Παπαδημητρίου, Λήδα Παπακωνσταντίνου, Poka-Yio, Γιώργος Σαπουντζής, Scott Treleaven, Sharon Thomas, Νίκος Χαραλαμπίδης, Πέτρος Χρυσοστόμου and Μανταλίνα Ψωμά. (yes I was too bored to re-type all the names in english, but you can read all about it on Angelo Says)

The auction is an initiative of Breeder Gallery with curator Andrea Gilbert. It is a serious fundraiser for the emerging Athens Pride festival, and happily the auction was sold out, with record prices for works by Poka-Yio and Kalup Linzy.

Meanwhile, at the main spaces of Breeder, you can still see a great Ryan McGinley show

featuring photos of cute boys and girls
exchanging pills,
jumping up in the air,

and hiding inside fabulous multicolored caves.

Meanwhile, Loraini Alimandiri GazonRouge gallery has relocated to the legendary,

and perhaps now strangely renovated,  Aristomenis Provelengios building, famous for being a small scale urban house-studio.

The second show is Isabelle Fein,

I managed to peak at a super cute Ryan McLaughlin
painting from the first exhibition.

A few blocks down, Apartment Gallery has also found new digs,  in a grand classic 1930's apartment,
 and kicked off the season with a show by lovely Maria Andelman
