Since its founding in 1957, the Hellenic American Union has been one of the most prominent institutions on the Athens cultural scene and a forum where the public can encounter new trends in art, science and technology from Europe and the United States. Through a program of exhibitions, performances, concerts, lectures and seminars it promotes the exchange of ideas on art, science and society.
The two galleries of the Hellenic American Union, ″John F. Kennedy″ and ″Nikos Hadjikyriakos – Ghikas″, have become a reference point for friends of the visual arts. The galleries have hosted artworks by some of the most significant representatives of contemporary art: Joseph Kosuth, Bruce Davidson, Peter Greenaway, Joel-Peter Witkin, Joseph Beuys, Stephen Antonakos, but also George Zongolopoulos, Iason Molfesis, Afrodite Liti, Giorgos Lappas, Kostis Velonis to name a few.
Many eminent Greek and foreign figures in the arts, sciences and literature have spoken at the Hellenic American Union. The institution’s cultural program also features film tributes and screenings of rare archival material, theater performances and panel discussions which examine issues of social concern or explore contemporary trends in arts and literature, academic research and social development.
