Annette Messager Hellenic Parliament + ΝΕΟΝ
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).
Messager's "Dependance/Independance," 1995-6, will be shown.
