We will be visiting one of the two private museums of Contemporary Art in Athens, the Frissiras Museum in Plaka, and attend the inauguration of their new exhibition “Dino Valls: A journey through Spanish magic realism”, a retrospective exhibition of 40 works by the contemporary Spanish painter Dino Valls.

The Frissiras Museum, the only Museum for Contemporary European Painting in Greece, was founded in 2000 by the Vlassis Frissiras family. The Frissiras Museum houses the private collection of its founder, Vlassis Frissiras – an attorney by profession but passionate about art, he started collecting works by young Greek visual artists in 1978, with the resolute aim of putting together a collection made up exclusively of paintings centered on two axes: the human form and body, and representation, i.e. the figurative art that reinstates a method of painting which has been more or less marginalized by newer forms of art. In the 1990s, his interest turned to European artists.
