Dimitris Daskalopoulos Collection is Exhibited at the Guggenheim Bilbao
The Guggenheim Bilbao Museum will host an exhibition with works from the collection of Hellenic Federation of Enterprises Chairman Dimitris Daskalopoulos, one of the most important private collections of contemporary art.
The exhibition, titled The Luminous Interval: The D. Daskalopoulos Collection, features works by more than 30 renowned contemporary artists dating mainly from the 1980s and 1990s, covering the most salient artistic movements of these decades.
The collection includes works by eminent artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelley, and Martin Kippenberger, as well as younger artists like Paul Chan and Alexandros Psychoulis.
The exhibition draws its title from Nikos Kazantzakis' philosophic work Salvatores Dei (The Saviours of God) that describes life as the luminous interval between abysses. It will be on display from April 12 to September 11.
