Dates for 2018


Deste Foundation - David Shrigley 2018

Opening Party Mon 18 June 20:00 Exhibition Dates: 19 June - 30 September 2018 

Laughterhouse is a presentation in the Slaughterhouse of a documentary film about goats whose cries sound like those of human beings. It is amusing to behold goats making these sounds and it is intended to be a funny film. However; slaughterhouses are not funny places. Particularly if you are a vegetarian or a goat. The contradiction between the comedy of the film and the history of the space is the motivation behind this artwork.The exhibition will be on view at DESTE’s Project Space on Hydra island between June 19 and September 30, 2018. At the opening of the project, there will also be a presentation of a piece of music created using the goat sounds from the film. The performance will use electric guitars created by the artist. In addition to this, there will be a small intervention on the tables of the cafés on Hydra: customers at these establishments are invited to season their food with “Invisible Dust” sprinkled from a specially created ceramic vessel.

SwimRun Hydra

17, 18 & 19 November 2018

Swimrun is a multiple-stage competition which involves participants running and swimming over a cross-country race course that involves many transitions between the swim and run stages of the race. What defines a swimrun is that its always carried out outdoors and in water where the goal is to go from a starting point to a finish point through a course with at least 2 swim and run sections. All the equipment that a participant starts with has to be carried all the way to the finish line. Even though swimrun urges participants to use flotation equipment, equipment larger than 100×60 cm is not allowed.[9] Because of safety measures a swimrun competition is usually carried out by teams but there are several races where you can race individually.[7] There are three classes to compete in; either a men`s class, women`s class or a mixed gender class.



If you're holding an event, exhibition or party you can include it here.
