The Alekos Fassianos estate is a non-profit civil company founded in 2020 by Alekos Fassianos and his family. It is dedicated to collecting, preserving, protecting, defending by all legal means, exhibiting and interpreting the oeuvre of Alekos Fassianos. The Estate operates on a national and international level and has three main objectives: to manage the artist’s estate and museum, to facilitate research into his oeuvre and to make his work more accessible in dialogue with artists, researchers, curatos and the public. With an interdisciplinary approach, the estate will organise temporary exhibitions as well as academic activities and projects in collaboration with other institutions and organisations. Through its exhibition and educational programmes, the Estate aspires to promote the study of Alekos Fassianos work and explore lines of research linked to his work and to contemporary art.
The estate is located in a building designed jointly in the nineties by the artist and Kyriakos Krokos, renowned architect and longtime friend and collaborator of the artist. It is located in the Athenian neighborhood of Metaxourgio and its architectural style and rhythm illustrates the aesthetic and philosophical principles that underpin Alekos Fassianos’ work, making it one of the few museums in the world in which the complicity between artist and architect underpins the dialogue between the works and the space that houses them.
