7 Amazing Art Destinations Across Europe To Visit this Summer

 

4. The Island of Hydra, Greece

 

The small, scenic Greek Island of Hydra will be alive with art this summer.

The DESTE Foundation Project Space formerly the island’s slaughterhouse, will be host to renowned Italian multi-disciplinary artist Roberto Cuoghi. “Putiferio” the Latin for “To Bring the Stink” will be an investigation into varying archaic methods of firing ceramics.

 

Artist Maria Tsagari will be installing works around the beautiful island as part of Hydra for artists for the Mediterranean (HYAM). French based HYAM selects a Greek-Cypriot artist to exhibit on the historic Greek island each year to promote them and art from the region in general. Tsagari will be installing small sculptures in the shape of blue plants around the landscape in ways that are un-harmful to the land and ecosystem.
