The DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art presents the project “Liquid Antiquity”: curated by Brooke Holmes, Robert F. Goheen, Polina Kosmadaki, and Yorgos Tzirtzilakis, the exhibition, hosted at Benaki Museum‘s Main Building, explores the possibility of reinventing classicism and argues for its enduring influence on contemporary art.

The project includes a publication, co-edited by Brooke Holmes and Karen Marta, as well as a site-specific video installation featuring six interviews with the artists who contributed to the publication in dialogue with the Benaki Museum’s permanent collection
