Alekos Fassianos Museum

The Alekos Fassianos Museum is housed in a building remodeled and designed by architect Kyriakos Krokos in close collaboration with Alekos Fassianos. The building was completed in 1995. The Alekos Fassianos Museum opened to the public in 2023.

The exhibition space aims to focus on the diverse artistic practice of Alekos Fassianos. Presenting works from 1956 to the end of his life, the exhibition introduces the viewer to Fassianos’ development as an artist. Showcasing works from the early years in Paris in the 1960s and his brief influence from abstract art to the inspiration he later draws from Byzantine art with the use of gold leaves and a darker color palette, a series of paintings of his widely celebrated maniera as well as collages and mixed media works. The exhibition pays tribute to his neighborhood, Agios Pavlos. The “Myth of his neighborhood” unfolds through a series of works representing local life in the 40s, 50s and 60s in Athens. His childhood heroes merge with the heroes of Greek mythology, the profane and the sacred, creating thus, the eternal hero, the man. Aside from painting, the exhibition aims to present Fassianos’ polyhedric personality. Showcasing design pieces he created for his home and important archival material of his writings, iconography, scenography and costume designs he did for La cantatrice chauve by Ionesco, No exit by Jean-Paul Sartre and comedies by Aristophane among others.

The Alekos Fassianos Museum is significant to the contemporary artistic and architectural map of Athens for it is one of the few museums in the world in which the complicity between artist and architect underpins a dialogue between the works and the space that houses them.

The Alekos Fassianos Museum organizes exhibitions, talks and educational programs for children.
