LO AND BEHOLD is an artist-run non-profit organisation based in Athens whose aim is to produce and promote cultural activities, both in Greece and abroad, with a focus on contemporary art.

LO AND BEHOLD’s objective is to highlight anew the work of art itself and the stragegies used for its production, a result of research and thought, independent of its commercial standing. Further, LO AND BEHOLD intends to promote and manage contemporary art projects in a flexible and targeted manner, in diverse cultural and social surroundings, an approach unconfined by the conventionality that is often encountered in local, more restricted contexts.

The creation of such a platform not only allows, but also aims at, dialogue, and the immediate involvement of diverse social and cultural frameworks from all over Europe. This dialogue regarding research and experimentation concerning new methods in contemporary art, as well as dialogue about strategies for the creation and management of the work of art, are all important matters: probably more so than ever, given the present economic and geo-cultural conditions.
