Angelo lives and works in Athens. The central aim in Angelo’s work is to network the offline with

Angelo’s activities range from performances to artist residencies; from self-publishing to interactive
websites; from sculpture to live-stream events and educational projects. He is the organizer for the
annual, week-long gatherings of the ‘Eternal Internet Brotherhood/Sisterhood’ in different remote
places in the world and, most recently, of the ‘Experimental Education Protocol’. He exhibits
internationally, highlights include Documenta 14, both in Kassel and Athens; The Museum of
Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Jeu de Paume, Paris; the DESTE Foundation, and the National
Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens; Frieze Projects 2013, London. A Fulbright alumnus, he was awarded the DESTE prize in 2015.
