George Vamvakidis and Stathis Panagoulis inaugurated the Breeder in November 2002. The gallery represents a group of international and Greek, emerging and established artists. It aims to facilitate the long- term development of their careers, liaising with international galleries, curators, institutions, museums and collectors. Since 2002, The Breeder has successfully introduced select international artists and projects to the Athenian public, while simultaneously presenting Greek artists to the contemporary arts community abroad. Over the last ten years The Breeder has been a pioneer in the development of the contemporary art scene in Athens.
