National Museum of Contemporary Art’s Press Event Reporting on its Activities Since 2017
15 NOVEMBER 2018

On Thursday, November 15, 2018, a Press Conference was held for the presentation of the National Museum of Contemporary Art’s activities carried out in Greece and abroad during 2017-2018, and the announcement of the Museum’s 2019 exhibition programming.

At the event, a reference was made to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s (SNF) grant towards the Museum, which was approved in July 2018. The grant aims to support the Museum in fulfilling all the necessary steps that will lead to its completion and full operation, and enable it to stay open to the public on a permanent basis.

Specifically the SNF grant, which amounts to more than $3 million, supports the purchase of equipment, the completion of final works, and the implementation of the approved plans for the installation of its permanent collection. In parallel, the grant will enable the operation of the media lounge, the screening and conference room, as well as of the library, the archives, the roof terrace and other areas.
