NEON, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture & Sports, is launching the independent microsite contemporaryheritage.neon.org.gr to highlight the interaction between the past and contemporary culture. The microsite will use NEON material from its contemporary art exhibitions in archaeological and historical sites from 2014 to the present and will be enriched with material from future exhibitions and collaborations between NEON and the Ministry of Culture.
This initiative has provided the impetus for an initial discussion between Minister of Culture & Sports Dr. Lina Mendoni and NEON’s founder Dimitris Daskalopoulos on the subject of contemporary culture during social distancing enforced by the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The discussion is part of the NEON Talks programme and will take place on Friday 1 May 2020, at 19:00 (GMT+2).
The talk will be live-streamed online on NEON’s YouTube channel.
Moderated by Syrago Tsiara, Deputy Director MOMus-Museum of Contemporary Art.
