The Hellenic Museum invites you to the opening of its second Contemporary Art Space exhibition, The Stars Know My Name. Join us from 6PM for complimentary refreshments, with speeches at 6.30PM.

About the Exhibition
Power. Status. Beauty. The pursuit of these desirable qualities transcends time and culture, and has coloured much of history. In The Stars Know My Name, the second exhibition of the Hellenic Museum's new Contemporary Art Space, works from leading multi-disciplinary artist Darren Sylvester are contrasted against a selection of ancient-inspired bronze helmets from the Hellenic Museum collection. Though worlds apart, these objects share the same concern for reputation and mortality. Together, they illustrate a universal story of human desire for longevity, power and status – in whatever form they may take.
