HEAD to HEAD is a bilateral exhibition project connecting the two unique, dynamic, and ever-expanding artist-run visual art scenes of Athens, Greece, and Reykjavik, Iceland. The project aims to establish an energetic connection between Greek and Icelandic artists and spaces and boost peripheral European cultural collaboration. The execution of the project will be based on an exchange and pairing of Greek and Icelandic artists resulting in exhibitions in both places. The Icelandic exhibition committee has proposed a selection of Icelandic artists to each of the collaborating exhibition spaces. The proprietors of each space then propose a Greek artist, pairing the two together to create an exhibition. During a research trip in Athens last September 2019 the curatorial team met with several artist-run initiatives and institutions and confirmed their participation. They are beside A-DASH are KEIV, Hyle, Backspace, Pet Projects, Snehta, Space52, Zoetrope, Sunday Narratives, PS: Communitism, MEME and Stoa 42. This process will then be mirrored in Reykjavik, Iceland and the following artist-run initiatives and institutions have confirmed their participation in 2022; Kling & Bang, The Living Art Museum, Museum of Perceptive Art, Open, Gallery Port, Midpunkt, Reykjavik Association of Sculptors/ Reykjavik Sculpture Garden.
