Hellenic Parliament + ΝΕΟΝ | former Public Tobacco Factory
Following NEON’s collaboration with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, for the installation of Louise Bourgeois’ Maman at the Esplanade, the SNFCC Members participate for last tie at a guided tour at NEON’s exhibition entitled Dream On, in the context of their exclusive off premises Members’ activities.
For a second consecutive year, NEON activates the emblematic building of the former Public Tobacco Factory as part of its collaboration with the Hellenic Parliament to present Dream On, a contemporary art exhibition that celebrates art in the public space.
Curated by Dimitris Paleocrassas, Art historian and consultant of the D.Daskalopoulos Collection, Dream On brings together 18 large-scale installations from the D.Daskalopoulos Collection by Greek and international artists, as well as a newly commissioned work, and 20 drawings.
The exhibition follows the announcement of the D.Daskalopoulos Collection Gift, presenting some of the most important works of the Collection which will then be donated to 4 museums in 3 countries over 2 continents (EMST, Tate, and jointly to the Guggenheim and MCA Chicago).
This is the first time that a crucial mass of the large-scale works of the D.Daskalopoulos Collection will be exhibited in Greece, gathered in the open, freely accessible space of the former Public Tobacco Factory. More information here.
