Throughout the years Athenas Street has been the market where the western world met the world of the East. It mutated from glorious with its merchants’ residencies, to a ghetto of workers, petty traders, prostitutes, and criminals as a constant battlefield. In contradiction to that, it was named after the goddess Athena, a beloved deity of the ancient Greeks, the personification of wisdom, knowledge, and art.
It connects Monastiraki area (the way to ascend the sacred hill of Acropolis) with Omonia Square
(the heart of the city) and is one of the main streets of Athens.
Popeye loves Olive has invited 16 Greek and one international artist, to comment on how history prevails and how daily life has changed over the centuries, by selecting their materials from this particular street and by creating a community through social media to exchange their inspirational seeds, photos, and stories.
