Fotis Flevotomos is a visual artist and musician. His work focuses on narratives and multisensory museum practices that explore different ways of seeing. He has conceived and guides "Seeing with the Senses" a monthly program at the Benaki Museum for visitors who are blind or partially sighted (this is the first access program that has ever been offered by a museum in Greece on a regular basis). He has also designed such programs for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) and the Museum of Cycladic Art. In 2012 Flevotomos received a Fulbright grant and joined the New York Public Library (NYPL) Outreach Department in its efforts to raise awareness on issues around art, low vision and creativity. He studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts and art and music theory at the University of Essex (MPhil). He has written short articles for the journal Leonardo (MIT Press), the website of the New York Public Library and the website of the Music Library of Greece (Lilian Voudouri). His works have been displayed at various spaces and galleries in New York, Finland, Greece and Cyprus.
