Athens on NY Times: 52 Places to Go in 2017

We are glad to see Athesn makes it into NY Times list of 52 places to go in 2017: 52 Places to Go in 2017

As NY Times states,
A post-crisis art boom in an ancient capital.

Prices have dropped, but the Greek debt crisis has not dampened Athens’s thriving arts scene. Recent years have seen a surge of galleries, collectives and nonprofit art organizations built for leaner times, like Radio Athènes, which hosts pop-up lectures and performances, and the immigration-focused Nomadic Architecture Network. In October, the renovated EMST National Museum of Contemporary Art opened in a former brewery, while the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, designed by Renzo Piano, opened in August. Athens will co-host the 2017 edition of documenta, the influential art exhibition held in Kassel, Germany, since it started in 1955. — Charly Wilder
