CASE STUDY

The HYam (Hydra for Artists of the Mediterranean) association, created in 2014 by Pauline Simons, supports emerging artists from Mediterranean countries and helps them evolve through different initiatives and complementary events in Hydra and Paris whether they are exhibitions, productions, roundtables or residencies. 

In 2021, HYam chose Evi Kalogiropoulou and Malvina Panagiotidi, two Greek artists and Maude Maris and Eva Nielsen, two French artists. All these artists were exhibited on the island of Hydra as part of the exhibition Dancing in Chains.
