Athens – Visit to Frissiras Museum

Frissiras museum Athens

Classical music follows me when I stroll through the Frissiras museum in Athens. This museum for Contemporary European Art is a hidden gem in a city full of antiquities.

Guided by classical music….

Family Frissiras

The Frissiras family collects works of art from young European artists. Not just from the typical European countries as France, but also from Serbia, Poland, and of course Greece itself. Their current collection consists of about 4000 works and is still growing.

Although the artists come from different countries, use different techniques and focus on different topics; there is a coherence in the collection and the paintings that are on display. In this museum, that opened in 2000,  you clearly get a glimpse of the family’s taste for art.

Changing exhibitions

There is no permanent collection in the museum. The exhibition changes every six months. The paintings shown in this article are no longer on display in the museum, as I visited the museum in January  2018. The pictures do, though, give an impression of the kind of art that is being exhibited.
