National Gallery-Alexandros Soutsos Museum

Last week, Syrago Tsiara, Director of the National Gallery, welcomed us warmly to the recently refurbished building and guided us through the history of the institution outlining its mission and exhibition program. She highlighted the role of art in observing, creating, disseminating history as well as in shaping the collective memory. The tour was a stimulating experience, elaborating on certain works of the permanent collection and walking us through the exhibition currently on view “Konstantinos Parthenis (1878–1967) – Painting an Ideal Greece”. Thank you Syrago for sharing your knowledge and wisdom.
