AD Gallery

Since the AD Gallery's establishment in 1986, our focus is to show contemporary art from Greece, the rest of Europe and the United States. Our exhibitions include installations, photography, painting, sculpture and video. Generally, we are interested in art works that indicate a - global or local -political awareness. Our objective is that each show is conceived based on its own criteria, without requiring references to previous exhibitions.
