ATHENS – The 24th Art Athina, the Athens contemporary art fair usually held each year in June, will be held on September 13-16 at Zappeion Megaron, due to the upcoming July 7 general elections, it was announced on Monday.

Art Athina is organised by the Panhellenic Federation of Art Galleries and is under the auspices of Greek President Prokopios Pavlopoulos.
Art Athina Summer Pop Up opens at Aiolou 48-50 Street on July 19-23.


Retailers are bracing for an unexpected surge in demand for some key fashion items in the run-up to Black Friday.
