Art Athina 2009

What a wonderful Saturday! First stop at Bacaro to visit the last Fox Fair of this spring, while having coffee and tramezzini with the Streetgeist guys. Unfortunately, no pictures from there... Bad blogger!

Then, it was all the way down to Faliro to attend Art Athina International Contemporary Art Fair. In numbers: 60 art galleries from 12 different countries showing works by 300 artists. Which means long post ahead.

Can you read what the sign above the cubicles reads?

"Culture is a safe.
Put your money in cultural things!"
