ATHENS WORTH SEEING FRISSIRAS MUSEUM

FRISSIRAS MUSEUM
The Frissiras Museum, the only Museum for Contemporary European Painting in Greece, was inaugurated on November 27, 2000 by the President of the Republic Constantine Stefanopoulos and officially opened on December 4, 2000. It is housed in Plaka, in two adjacent neoclassical buildings brought up to the latest museum specifications, and operates as a nonprofit private entity.

The collections comprise sections of paintings, drawings, sculptures and engravings by major European artists in constructive dialogue with their Greek counterparts, and attempt to trace the trends and record the figures of the anthropocentric European painting after World War II.

Among the exhibits of the Museum are works by Hockney, Auerbach, Blake, Rustin, Pat Andrea, Dado, Segui, Rego, Velickovic, Arroyo, Adami, Diamantopoulos, Moralis, ╠avroidis, Theofylaktopoulos, Botsoglou, Dikos Vyzantios, Christoforou and the younger Kirby, Howson, Corpet, Martinelli, Smith, Pasieka, Marrey, Schauwecker, Lappas, Missouras, Manzavinos, Sacaillian, Daskaliakis, Bitsikas... It is noted that the collection comprises over 3000 works.

The Museum has already formed cooperation schemes with other European institutions (Veranneman Museum, Whitechapel, Adami Foundation, Maeght Foundation, Onassis Foundation) for the exchange of exhibitions and related activities. The operation of the Museum is based entirely on private initiative and aims to promote contemporary Greek art internationally and serve as a forum for the acquaintance with European art.

The Frissiras Museum has already scheduled for the 2001-2004 period a series of individual retrospectives for artists works of whom are held in its collections. As part of this programme the exhibition was held of Dutch painter Pat Andrea (April 6 - June 16, 2001), to be followed by major retrospectives for the important French painter Vincent Corpet (September 27 - November 25, 2001) and the established Greek artist Costas Tsoclis (November 29, 2001 - January 27, 2002).

At the same time the Frissiras Museum organizes guided tours and educational programmes and hosts various cultural activities and concerts, at the atrium in Building 3 and the open-air auditorium of Building 7. Visitors to the Museum can avail themselves of the Cafe and the Art Shop, which proposes original art objects, decorative or functional.
