A stellar showcase of modern Greek art
The Rhodes Museum of Modern Greek Art's recent relaunch has put the spotlight on what is arguably one of the best collections of its kind in the country. With a new management and a new exhibition (which can only be viewed online for the time being), the institution is seeking to fulfill the role it deserves as a national attraction. While lofty, it is a realistic ambition, thanks to the quality and breadth of the collection that does indeed make this one of the most important galleries in Greece.
The museum's new identity has been launched with the exhibition "Biography."
"The objective was to reintroduce the collection while aiming at younger generations," says art historian George Mylonas, who curated the show. "It is not an anthology of art, but a deliberate bringing together of pieces that are centered on the face, an attempt at a fresh osmosis."
