The thematic or monographic groupings that will be on display at the Benaki Museum (Pireos Street Annex, Main Building) and the Athens School of Fine Arts, as well as in various other gallery spaces in Athens, constitute approximately a quarter of the 1,600 works the collection holds to date.
This exhibition is intended to challenge current museological trends in displaying permanent collections. The exhibition asks the viewer to consider that all places can be fictitious and that any of us can be part of or can imagine an artistic creation and a time period and its significance. The exhibit is designed to encourage the free exchange of ideas and the repeal of dogmatism and prejudices. In February, the exhibition will move to Thessaloniki and may possibly travel abroad.
