Outset Is

Outset Contemporary Art Fund is a philanthropic organisation dedicated to supporting new art by bringing private funding from its patrons, partners and trustees to public museums and art projects. Since its inception in 2003 the foundation has supported a range of projects at leading visual arts institutions, from exhibitions, education and residency programmes to publications and capital campaigns. Outset has chapters in England, Germany, India, Israel, the Netherlands, Greece, Scotland and the United States.

Outset Greece was established in 2012 in collaboration with NEON, founded by Dimitris Daskalopoulos, and provides a platform for a constructive dialogue between artists, society and institutions.

'AGRIMIKA - Why look at animals?'

Outset Greece is delighted to support Maria Papadimitriou's project AGRIMIKA - Why look at animals? at the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. Maria Papadimitriouís installation is a shop, a vestige of the past, that sells animal hides and leather, transferred from Volos to the central but ìruinedî landscape of the Greek Pavilion. Exploring the relationship of humans and animals, AGRIMIKA - Why look at animals? is a contemporary allegory of the dispossessed and the resistant and sparks concerns ranging from politics and history to economics and traditions, ethics and aesthetics, fear of the foreign and the incomprehensible.
