DESCRIPTION

The Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center, a privately owned commercial gallery, (ITCAC) (at 48 Armatolon & Klefton Street) opened in 1988 and was the first multi-purpose space of its kind in Athens. The Center specializes in Greek and international contemporary art. Since 1988 has covered a wide range of activities in its long presence in the Greek art scene. The Center features a particularly rich exhibition program. It has organized over 150 contemporary art exhibitions within its premises. This program has been complimented with a wide series of cultural events, extending from festivals, lectures, publications, book presentations, music events as well as poetry readings and theatre performances. Furthermore, the ITCAC has regularly participated in international art fairs including Art Basel, Art Frankfurt, ARCO, Art Cologne, Artissima, MiArt etc.

The building is specially designed to meet the demands of a contemporary exhibition space equipped with audio/video facilities ideal to hire for lectures, presentations, events etc..
