Greece’s National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) in Athens is included on The Guardian’s list of the top ten new museum openings around the world in 2017.

“History, art and design will be celebrated in their many forms, and disciplines, at new institutions from Paris to Los Angeles and London to Cape Town”, the British newspaper says.

The EMST, which had a “soft launch” in October 2016, is the third new museum on the list.

Located in the old Fix brewery on Kallirrois Avenue and Amvrosiou Frantzi Street in Athens, the EMST inaugurated the temporary exhibition space with the show “Urgent Conversations: Athens–Antwerp”. The museum’s permanent collection is expected to be unveiled in autumn 2017, when the museum is expected to open in its entirety.

“The reconstruction of EMST has been quite a tale, with over a decade financial and bureaucratic setbacks”, The Guardian mentions.
