The Last Grand Tour – Deutsche Bank supports exhibition at the Museum of Cycladic Art

April 15 - October 10 │ Athens

The theme of the current show at the Museum of Cycladic Art, which Deutsche Bank supports as its main sponsor, is Greece as a location of inspiration for 20th-century artists. "The Last Grand Tour" was conceived by Jessica Morgan, curator at Tate Modern. In 2006, Morgan organized the first show in the exhibition series "Blind Date" featuring works from the Deutsche Bank Collection. The show’s title alludes to the tradition of the educational journey. Starting in the Renaissance, sons of the nobility and aristocracy embarked on trips to visit the most important European artistic sites.

Painters as varied as Brice Marden and Martin Kippenberger have lived and worked here. On the other hand, Brice Marden’s works are more “classic.” The Museum of Cycladic Art, located at the center of Athens, shows artifacts from Cycladic culture of the Bronze Age, as well as regular exhibitions of contemporary work, such as Louise Bourgeois and Sarah Lucas.
