Visual Art

In collaboration with museums, curators, and scholars from around the world, the Onassis Cultural Center New York produces critically acclaimed art exhibitions, often featuring artworks and objects never before shown in the United States. Exhibitions range from Ancient Greek and Roman Art to Byzantine Art to Modern and Contemporary Art.

With a new emphasis on the present, the Onassis Cultural Center New York presents the work of established, emerging, and newly discovered artists from Greece and around the world. Launched in the fall of 2015, The Art Wall offers a prominent place to display specially commissioned works by contemporary artists in the Olympic Tower Atrium.
