3 137 is an artist run space based in Athens, founded by Chrysanthi Koumianaki, Kosmas Nikolaou, and Paky Vlassopoulou in 2012.
During the 8 years of its operation, the collective has presented research projects in collaboration with art professionals, scientists and friends as well as exhibitions and one off projects like performances and talks.
The artists’ initiative aims to create a meeting point for exchange, discussion, and research. Its projects place emphasis on collaboration, hospitality and hybrid forms of being together. During the 8 years of its operation, the collective has presented research projects in collaboration with art professionals, scientists and friends as well as exhibitions and one off projects like performances and talks.
Since 2016, 3 137 has been developing After the Explosion...You Hear the Light, a research project in collaboration with Klea Charitou (art historian, curator) regarding the greek art scene of the 70s, presented through an exhibition, public talks, lectures, screenings, educational workshops and a forthcoming publication.
In 2019, the initiative was invited by Alserkal Arts Foundation for their annual commission during Dubai March Art Week. 3 137 created a program based project, entitled Rhodiola, including an online Radio Station, a Film Program and a series of Performances and Workshops, in collaboration with artists, curators and scientists.
At the same time, 3 137 has established the immaterial institution Gabriela. Gabriela deals with issues of sustainability, labor and institutionalisation questioning the role of artists' initiatives.
In 2019 we created a series of workshops, screenings and podcasts around the notion of maintenance. We focused on labor conditions, sustainability, well-being and digitalization of everyday life. As an extension of this research we are currently focusing on the cityscape of Athens and how the everyday life and economy has changed the last few years. We are looking at housing rights, gentrification processes and emerging collectives working on human rights.
Simultaneously, we are interested in local production, cultivation and crop regarding the current climate change, pollution and health awareness. Ultimately, we are seeking for future scenarios of inhabitation and co-existence. Through a participatory, collaborative and interdisciplinary practice we explore common urban challenges and the requirements for a better quality of life for all. The intention is to (re)imagine possible future economic, environmental and social schemes based on inclusivity and fairness.
