Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete - Municipal Gallery "L.Kanakakis"

Τhe Municipal Gallery "L. Kanakakis" was founded in 1992. It is housed in a Venetian building in the heart of the old, historical town of Rethymno, below the Fortezza and the Archaeological Museum.

It houses a permanent exhibition of the work of Lefteris Kanakakis (oil paintings, sketches and aquarelles), thus representing all the stages of his achievements, as well as works of contemporary Greek artists, which cover a broad spectrum of modern Greek art as it has been accomplished from 1950 until today.

On a similar line the Centre of Contemporary Art- Municipal Gallery "L. Kanakakis" complements its activities with the edition of catalogues and other educational or instructive material. Furthermore, since 1995 art workshops have been operating under the direction of the Centre of Contemporary Art.
