Modern art is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Athens, but this institution, established in 2000, aims to change that. It occupies an appropriate building: Greece's first brewery, established in 1853; it was rebuilt in 1957 by Takis Zenetos, probably Greece's foremost architect of the postwar modernist period. Now it's being transformed into a 21st-century arts palace with many exhibition spaces, shops, and restaurants, by hip Athenian architects 3SK Stylianidis. Until it's finished, the EMST (National Museum of Contemporary Art) is occupying the exhibition spaces at the Megaron (Athens Concert Hall) for its shows (1 Kokkali St.; 30-210-728-2333).
