Πινακοθήκη Ν. Χατζηκυριάκου-Γκίκα
N. Hadjikyriakos-Ghika Gallery)
This house, which belonged to the modernist artist Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas, is a typical example of interwar Athenian architecture. The mansion was a meeting point for the Athenian intelligentsia of the era and was often photographed for international magazines. Today a visitor can see Ghika’s studio on the fifth floor, where some of his most representative paintings are on display.
Presented for the first time in conjunction with documenta 14 are silver prints by Ghika from his travels in Greece during the 1930s.
Other permanent exhibitions are dedicated to themes from modern Greek cultural history, ranging from the Smyrna Catastrophe of 1922 to the junta’s dictatorship of 1967–74.
A small selection of paintings from the holdings of the National Gallery of Art in Tirana introduces an alternative modernity as a foil to the largely Greek-themed collection.
