National Archaeological Museum modern sculpture tribute continues with Achilles Vasileiou’s ‘First Victory’

The fourth event in the National Archaeological Museum’s annual tribute to modern Greek sculpture will be launched next Monday at 18:00, with sculptor Achilles Vasileiou presenting his work “First Victory” in the museum’s atrium.

Vasileiou will be present at the launch, while he has also selected an ancient sculpture for the museum’s permanent collection that he considers conducts a dialogue with his own work. The ancient sculpture will be presented by a museum archaeologist during the exhibition.

“First Victory” will remain on show in the museum’s atrium until February 2017, while entry is free of charge.

The tribute began in the summer of 2016, in collaboration with the Sculptors’ Association of Greece, and features a representative work by a modern Greek sculptor every two months.
