The Frances Rich School of Fine and Performing Arts (FRSFPA) presents the exhibition Rag to Rich, curated by invited artist, curator and founding director of the Athens Biennale, Poka-Yio. The exhibition is part of the Arts Festival organized by the FRSFPA.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on March 20, 18:00 - 22:00, at the ACG Art Gallery.

Rag to Rich reflects upon alternative physical and spatial possibilities and questions predetermined structural limits as points of mediation and negotiation. An essential part of this exhibition is to act and expand through episodic events and spatial interventions, starting at the entrance point of Deree and culminating at the ACG gallery. Rag to Rich brings together works and new commissions by contemporary female artists, intertwined with a selection of pieces and mementos of the estate of artist Frances Rich, and is supplemented by the collaboration of the students of the Art History and Visual Arts programs of FRSFA.

Participating artists: 2WO+1NE=2, Accidental Queens, ActiVista, Loukia Alavanou, Eliza Alexandropoulou, Margarita Bofiliou, Anastasia Douka, Dora Economou, Georgia Fambris, Marina Gioti, Florence Jung, Demi Kaia, Eleni Kamma, Irini Karayannopoulou, Em Kei, Laur M, Marianne Maric, Rilène Markopoulou, Dawn Nilo, Patriarchy, Maria Polyzoidou, Frances Rich, Despina Sevasti, VV, Amalia Vekri, Eva Vretzaki.
