A dynamic cultural institute in the centre of Athens, the Museum of Cycladic Art focuses on promoting the ancient cultures of the Aegean and Cyprus, with particular emphasis on Cycladic art of the third millennium BC. Today, the Museum boasts one of the most comprehensive private collections of Cycladic Art in the world, with representative examples of the globally-famed Cycladic marble figurines. The Museum’ s permanent collections number some 3,000 objects of Cycladic, Ancient Greek and Ancient Cypriot Art, testimonies of cultures which flourished in the Aegean and the eastern Mediterranean from the fourth millennium BC into the sixth century AD.
The Museum of Cycladic Art’s temporary exhibitions focus on archaeology and modern and contemporary art with the aim to familiarize the public with important twentieth and twenty-first century artists and to explore the relations between ancient cultures and modern art. Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Thomas Struth, Louise Bourgeois, Sarah Lucas, Ugo Rondinone, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Ai Weiwei, and Cy Twombly are among the artists hosted.
