Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative
Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative (PCAI) is a not-for-profit organization which was established by POLYECO in 2013 as a means to raise environmental awareness through the medium of contemporary art and to challenge our perceptions about the realities we live in.
The transition from still to moving image in the past decades has had a huge impact in our visual readability and that is what motivated PCAI to focus on – although not restricted to- this dynamic medium of expanded art cinema.
Innovative and dynamic, PCAI commissions international artists to create artworks of moving image inspired by environmental issues. Often provocative, the works also initiate artistic dialogue. Today, PCAI has commissioned 14 film artworks by renowned Greek and International artists amongst which are Wu Tsang, Mika Rottenberg and Giorgos Drivas. Eleven of these films were presented for the first time in public in the context of Paratoxic Paradoxes exhibition (curated by Nadja Argyropoulou) in Benaki Museum, Athens in the spring of 2017 along with Documenta 14.
PCAI also collaborates with and supports international art organizations with the same vision on a wide range of activities.
Sensitive to its role towards the community, PCAI is committed to its educational role. Its programs are especially designed to address environmentally sensitive issues through the medium of digital art starting from the young age of children attending elementary schools.
Believing that environmental consciousness should be cultivated at an early age, PCAI has also created PCAI Junior, an innovative educational platform for schools in Greece and abroad.
