Dream On at The Public Tobacco Factory at Neon

 Dream On at The Public Tobacco Factory at Neon

What: For a second consecutive year, NEON and the Hellenic Parliament activate the emblematic building of the former Public Tobacco Factory to present Dream On, a contemporary art exhibition curated by Art historian Dimitris Paleocrassas,  that brings together 18 large-scale installations by Greek and international artists, as well as a newly commissioned work, and 20   drawings. This is the first time that a crucial mass of the large-scale works of the D.Daskalopoulos Collection will be exhibited in Greece. 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). According to the exhibition’s curator Dimitris Paleocrassas, Dream On is permeated by a sense of plenitude brought about by the realization of a great dream: an artist’s ambitious yet elusive goal attained through the unbridled creativity of large-scale installations. Similarly, through the D.Daskalopoulos Collection Gift, the dream of its owner becomes a reality: a private collection transformed into a public good to be preserved for future generations of audience and artists.
