The collection encompasses all things that showcase the distinct character of Athens, ranging from its landscapes and events to its people and their expressions.

The exhibits are thoughtfully organized into the following categories:



Urban Landscapes

City plans

Street Art/Street Scenes




Athens is a vibrant city, particularly in its central areas where the pace of life is fast. The streets are always bustling with activity, and the atmosphere is both colourful and occasionally drab. The people, their clothing, and their reactions are all indicative of the city’s lively character. Whether through storytelling, photography, or videography, capturing these moments allows for the emotions and energy of the city to be preserved over time.

The people who inhabit a city shape it, just as the city shapes its inhabitants. In that sense, UAPA aims to examine and understand the relationship between Man, Art, and City as a continuous cycle.

From Athens to Barcelona

The next destination is Barcelona, where UAPA plans to showcase a miniature version of Athens and promote it as a unique tourist destination to people worldwide.

Iannis Pantazidis, a professional with a Master’s in Arts and Cultural Management, oversees the exhibition.

Opening hours: 12:00 -21:00

Kypseli Municipal Market:  42 Fokionos Negri Str.
