The Apollo Wind Spinner, the first ever Jeff Koons art piece on display in Greece, has been luring visitors to Hydra ever since its installation at DESTE Foundation's Slaughterhouse project space last year.
DESTE returns to the same location this summer with a new promising exhibition. Dream Machines, curated by Daniel Birnbaum (director and curator of Acute Art in London, UK) and Massimiliano Gioni (artistic director at the New Museum, the Nicola Trussardi Foundation, and the Beatrice Trussardi Foundation). Dream Machines examines the impact of technology on human imagination.
The exhibition features loaned works from the Greek Cypriot influential art aficionado Dakis Joannou Collection, as well as contributions by several other artists. Visitors will get a chance to admire works by Marcel Duchamp, Fischli & Weiss, H.R. Giger, Nathalie Djurberg, Hans Berg, Brion Gysin, Jeff Koons, Mire Lee, Ulf Linde, Henrik Olesen, Philippe Parreno, Seth Price, William Reich, Pipilotti Rist, Pamela Rosenkranz, Mika Rottenberg, Sturtevant, Andro Wekua, Ulla Wiggen and more.
In just a two-hour boat ride from Piraeus, you can partake in this summer’s big hitter exhibition and explore Hydra, which always attracts an eclectic crowd.
