The UK artist Michael Landy is reaching out to the public for his next exhibition due to open at the Diplarios School in Athens (23 March-11 June), which has been put together by the Neon organisation. “Neon invites you to actively participate in the production of Michael Landy’s installation, by sending images that mirror your thoughts and feelings about Athens and Greece, your fears and hopes for its future, and your struggles and interactions within the city itself,” a press statement says. The show, entitled Breaking News-Athens, will incorporate images submitted, ranging from pictures of everyday life to news headlines and graffiti daubs (a taster for the project was shown last summer at the Tinguely Museum in Basel). “Over the course of the following months, the work will take shape in the form of blue and white drawings pinned directly to the wall of the school,” the statement adds. Images and graphic material can be submitted via neon.org.gr/en/breakingnewsathens
