They are presenting their works along with 38 artists from around the world within the Open Art Code Group exhibition, which is on display at Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti in Venice until 20 February and the admission to which is free.
The exhibition was opened on 4 February in the historic building of Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti that is located on the Grand Canal, the most visited place in Venice, and is very close to the Accademia Gallery and Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The audience will have the opportunity to enjoy the works of painting, sculpture, video as well as photographic installations on this wonderful place during the world-famous Carnival of Venice.

Even recently, when both Greece and Europe are in the grip of economic crisis, this desire to return to Venice is still strong, as evidenced by the exhibition.
