Hellenic Parliament + NEON at the former Public Tobacco Factory
former Public Tobacco Factory, Athens
8 June – 27 November 2022
For a second consecutive year, NEON activated 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 brought 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 followed the announcement of the D.Daskalopoulos Collection Gift, presenting some of the most important works of the Collection which were 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 were exhibited in Greece, gathered in the open, freely accessible space of the former Public Tobacco Factory.
