Stefania Strouza

  • Independent Artist

Stefania Strouza is a Greek visual artist currently living and working in Athens. She is a graduate of Architecture from the National Technical University of Athens (2007) and has received an MFA in Environmental Art from the Edinburgh College of Art (2010) and a Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (2015). Her practice explores how cultural narratives of diverse origins (such as Greek antiquity, indigenous cosmologies, or European modernity) move across space to generate new cross-cultural syncretisms.

Her work has been featured in exhibitions at Pinta Miami 2018, the Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art in Greece, the Bauhaus Foundation in Dessau, the Wiener Art Foundation (solo), the Neue Galerie Innsbruck (solo), the Athens & Epidaurus Festival (solo), the BOZAR in Brussels, and the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, among others. She held artist residencies at the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University (2016); the Bauhaus Foundation Dessau (2016); the Mexico City Residency supported by the Austrian Federal Chancellery for Art (2018); at Mana Contemporary New Jersey (2018-19) and at CCA Andratx, Majorca (2020). In 2018 Strouza was the recipient of the ARTWORKS Award of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and in 2019 she participated in the exhibition The Palace at 4 a.m. at the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos with a new work commissioned by the NEON Organisation.
