The Manager and Art Critic Peggy Kounenaki notes: "The word " krikos "( in Greek link) in the exact explanation of the relationship, means connecting people with the things and situations, so gradually gets unity, continuity and togetherness. This project based on and organized the exhibition, by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chania - Olivepress. This is the eighth year of Olivepress operation, more than ever, which involves in the artists, their art works and the Museum of Contemporary Art- Chania as a place. The Museum of Contemporary Art Chania - Olivepress was surrounded by Greek and international artists, and soon became the place of current culture, a meeting place for local and international visitors, a hosting place of trainees and students who play, observe and acquire their first artistic experiences. Sixty artists offered their art works, as a proof of a cooperation and solidarity between the Creators and the culture institution, the Museum. They are the “KRIKOS - LINK” of cooperation and life. Art works with different trends and style are going to be donated to the new members of “Club of Museum’s friends”, who support the natural meeting place of artists, art lovers, art explorers and no complacent viewers”.
