During the summer of 2018, the Cultural Organization “G. Axiotis” of the Municipality of Mykonos will be hosting the 1st Mykonos Art Festival. This unique festival will raise the profile and allure of Mykonos in the eyes of the world, filling a void in the island’s offerings to its cultured visitors, from both Greece and abroad.
The festival’s schedule features a wide variety of art exhibitions and installations, concerts, theatrical performances, film screenings and literary evenings. Mykonos Art Festival aspires to give its visitors the chance to experience the whole range of contemporary art, the traditions of the island of Mykonos and the cultural heritage of utopian Delos island.
World renowned and emerging young artists of different styles and backgrounds come together in Mykonos to shape a cultural map as diverse and fascinating as the island itself.
The aim of this new institution is to create an annual cultural event of the highest level and quality, worthy of the reputation and special position of Mykonos as a unique international destination.
The festival will be launched on June 23 with the opening of the new artwork exhibition of Kostas Tsoclis “The four elements of nature” in the Mykonos Annex of the Athens School of Fine Arts and will conclude at the end of September (28, 29 & 30/09) with the “Taste of Mykonos, a 3-day Gastronomy event on Tyrovolia-the local soft cheese” at Cine Manto open-air cinema.
