Inspired by the strong presence of the industrial sector in the non-residential parts of the island of Santorini, the exhibition “Industrial” is a group exhibition that explores issues of historical memory and its collective aspect. Through photography, sculpture and painting by 27 artists, the exhibition comes in dialogue with the industrial space that hosts it, namely the Santorini Arts Factory, thus integrating the building’s aura and “historical inertia” as a preserved and repurposed historical building.

Participating artists present works that approach the issue from different perspectives, either through the depiction of abandoned industrial infrastructure, the re-imagining of local prehistory or poignantly capturing the reinvention of traditional architecture for touristic and commercial purposes.
