The new ACG Art Gallery at The American College of Greece
In the summer of 2008, during Dr. John S. Bailey
's presidency, The American College of Greece
(Deree & Pierce Colleges) created a new space dedicated to art at its campus in Agia Paraskevi. This is the new ACG Art Gallery
, which is located at the foundation of Deree College Library with its own elaborate entrance. The gallery was designed by the architectural firm Fluid Architects
(Basil Kalaitzis, Elena Kamboukou and Julie Spartinos-Patronis), in collaboration with Megakles Rogakos
. The ACG Art Gallery includes an exhibition hall covering an area of 300 m²
and storage area of 200 m²
. What makes the ACG Art Gallery attractive for repeat visits is its innovative system of movable partition walls (Panelock Systems Ltd), which gives the ability to design the entire exhibition hall with rooms of different sizes and shapes, depending on the needs of any exhibition.
The storages are designed so as to meet the specific requirements of preserving various forms of artworks; 2-dimensional (Technarredi SRL) and 3-dimensional (KI Europe Ltd). In addition, the space is air-conditioned and de-humidified simultaneously on a 24-hour basis, as necessary for the maintenance of artworks. An electronic system monitoring the whole area, has also been installed for the safety of exhibits. Moreover, the space is protected from fire with an innovative dry sprinkler system. Finally, access is provided for wheelchair users, while the washrooms are designed with provision for people with disabilities.
The ACG Art Gallery will be launched in October 2008 with an exhibition entitled Silent Dialogues: Multimedia Portraiture throughout Time
with artworks from the collection of the College.
