2022 Programme 

May - August 2022
Chios island, Greece

DEO Projects is pleased to present the 2022 programme which is dedicated to the transnational nautical histories, the unknown oceanic landscape and the sea-linked commerce. Departing from the rich maritime culture and heritage of Chios, DEO inaugurates an on-going research around nautical life and our relationship with the sea. Greek and international artists are invited to engage with the island’s histories, bring their own perspectives and experiences, and develop new bodies of work. These will be explored and presented through the 2nd edition of Commission Series and other projects and events.

The programme, consisting of exhibitions, live events, interventions in the public sphere, local maritime collections, and educational activities will be presented across the island in various locations, from early July till the end of August 2022.

Participating artists: Dominique White, Serapis Maritime, Rowdy SS
