Deste 2000 Words

Conceived by Massimiliano Gioni, the Deste Foundation’s 2000 Words series gives insight into the work of some of today’s most exciting contemporary artists through the vantage point of the Dakis Joannou collection. “Collecting is, for me, is an adventure, a set of different—lived—experiences, a constant flow of meeting, talking, listening, looking.
