Polyeco Contemporary Art InitiativeDervenakion 24, Pireas 185 45, Greece
It was founded in 2014 by Polyeco S.A. Vice President Athanasios Polychronopoulos as a result of his genuine belief that art is the best tool to stimulate dialogue about critical environmental issues. The transition to moving image in the last decades as a dominant expressive medium is the main reason for PCAI’s primary focus on video and film.
PCAI implements its objectives though three areas of activity, its Collection, its Projects and its Support.
The Collection is based on special commissions mainly of moving image art. PCAI provides mid-career and emerging artists with the means and resources to create an artwork inspired by urgent environmental issues in their broader relation to current sociocultural, economic, philosophical concerns.
