Presentation of the book Frank
in presence of the artist Sille Storihle

Herefondos 14, Plaka 105 58
We are pleased to invite you to the presentation of the book FRANK, in presence of the artist Sille Storihle, on Thursday, September 2, at the Danish Institute of Athens. In 2012 and together with Liv Bugge, Storihle co-founded FRANK, a queer-feminist platform based in Oslo. Other than memorializing the “life” of FRANK, the book aims at becoming a tool for conversation and knowledge exchange across nationalities, generations, and artistic practices. The book was edited by Sille Storihle during her participation in the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) residency in New York, which was supported by the Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA).
The idea to bring the book to Athens was born during the ISCP residency in autumn 2019, when FRANK’s Sille Storihle and 3 137’s Paky Vlassopoulou first met. There are many similarities between 3 137 and FRANK, both being artist-run and collective endeavors. They aim to generate a critical and discursive space within the local context in which they operate, driven by the political urgency and artistic interests of their founders.
Τhe book’s launch took place online at Printed Matter’s Virtual Art Book Fair in February 2021. The event in Athens will be the first international, in-person presentation of the book. A limited number of copies of FRANK will be available for sale at the presentation. The book will be introduced by its main contributors, Liv Bugge and Sille Storihle, Antonio Cataldo and Wencke Mühleisen will read excerpts of the book in a video that will be screened for the audience. After the presentation, Sille Storhile will engage in a conversation with two of the founding members of 3 137, Kosmas Nikolaou, and Paky Vlassopoulou, which will later open up to the public.
We will be happy to see you there!
