Macedonian Centre of Modern Art : Michelin's recommendations
Located on the premises of the International Fair Ground (Helexpo), the Macedonian Centre of Modern Art (Makedonikó Kéndro Sínhronís Téhnis) serves as a venue for temporary exhibitions presenting the works of foreign artists from various periods, and also gives exposure to young contemporary Greek artists. The permanent collection has over 1 500 pieces (paintings, sculptures, engravings and photographs), and gives a broad overview of the studies and research of contemporary artists. Visitors can admire Dimitros Alithinos' interpretation of the Golden Fleece, the effects achieved by Nikos Zoumboulis and Titsa Grekou in Palindrome IV, and works by Takis. The museum also owns some works by foreign artists, most memorably the metal-strip works by American artist Dennis Oppenheim, Patrick Raynaud's composition entitled Thessaloníki and the papier-mâché statues of Adam and Eve by Niki de Saint-Phalle.
