YESTERDAY BEGINS TOMORROW

DESTE FOUNDATION, NEO PSYCHICO, ATHENS 2.12-13.3/2003

Charley and the DESTE Foundation are pleased to present the exhibition Yesterday Begins Tomorrow on the occasion of the publication of Charley 03.

Yesterday Begins Tomorrow is a minority report and a flash back. Playing with memory and amnesia, it presents works that have shaped two decades of contemporary art. The exhibition is both a tribute to and an incursion into the art of the ’80s and early ’90s as reflected through peripheral views and idiosyncratic selections. Unlike traditional historical reconstructions, Yesterday Begins Tomorrow presents works that might have slipped from or out of our memory while reintroducing them in a new frame, like a sudden encounter with a long lost friend.

Supported by the DESTE Foundation, Charley is a contemporary art publication series edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni, and Ali Subotnick and designed by The Purtill Family Business. For the exhibition Yesterday Begins Tomorrow, the publication presents works form the Dakis Joannou Collection by artists who have acquired international visibility in the ’80s and early ’90s. Aiming to discover the future by excavating the past, Yesterday Begins Tomorrow, just like Charley, is a time machine bringing out the past and casting it into a new light.
