Descripción del Profesional del arte
Dimitris Daskalopoulos is a Greek businessman and art collector. He is currently the Chief executive officer of Vivartia the largest food conglomerate in Greece and the 35th biggest corporation in Europe. The merged entity formed from the synthesis of Delta Holding S.A of which he was the largest shareholder and Chipita of which Spyridon Theodoropoulos was the largest shareholder. Daskalopolous is also a major collector of contemporary art, the caretaker of the D.Daskalopoulos Collection, Greece, and the founder of the NEON organization. He is also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, the Board of Trustees of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Chairman of the Collections Council of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and an active member of the Tate International Council and the Leadership Council of the New Museum and a founding partner of the Whitechapel’s Future Fund. The D.Daskalopoulos Collection founded in 2010 ... the post of The Daskalopoulos Curator International Art at Tate, to focus on contemporary and emerging international art, specifically from non-western regions, central to Tate’s commitment to broadening the geographical scope of its collection. The D.Daskalopoulos Collection continues to fund this post, now renamed The Daskalopoulos Senior Curator, International Art (Africa, Asia & Middle East), which is currently held by Clara Kim. Dimitris Daskalopoulos is a founding partner of the Whitechapel’s Future Fund (2011). His funding has enabled the Whitechapel Gallery to realise 3 projects over the next 4 years: a permanent post, The Daskalopoulos Head of Education & Public Programmes, held by Sofia Victorino, who runs the Gallery’s programme of learning with talks, events, courses, schools, family and community programmes; a new initiative, the NEON Curatorial Award; and a cultural programme between Athens and London, the NEON Curatorial Exchange. Dimitris Daskalopoulos is also a supporter of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. In 2015, the D.Daskalopoulos Collection created and funded a new post, The Daskalopoulos Curator of Engagement. Currently held by Mairi Lafferty, the new role is for an initial three year period, and aims to deepen public engagement with the Gallery’s public programme. Dimitris Daskalopoulos is also active in the Board of Trustees of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Chairman of the Collections Council of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. At the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation he has contributed to a discretionary curator’s fund for acquisitions, which he established as a gift to the Foundation. He has also been active in the support of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation (SRGF) acquisitions program through his membership of the International Directors Council. In 2003, Mr. Daskalopoulos and the SRGF jointly acquired Matthew Barney’s sculpture, Chrysler Imperial (2002), which is a partial promised gift to the museum. In 2014 Independent Curators International (ICI) honored Dimitris Daskalopoulos with the 2014 Leo Award. The award acknowledged his visionary approach to collecting, through the D.Daskalopoulos Collection, and his work in establishing NEON, a non-profit organization committed to bringing contemporary culture closer to everyone in Greece. Over the years he has contributed funds to facilitate acquisitions and exhibitions at major public art institutions worldwide, including Tate, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, the New Museum, Carnegie International, the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Greece and the Athens Biennale. His collection has been the subject of major exhibitions at the Guggenheim Bilbao ("Luminous Interval") and the Whitechapel Gallery. Among the works in his collection is David Hammons' "Flight Fantasy" (1996) which he has now given a second name "Stathis Logothetis" as shown at National Gallery of Scotland in the 2012–2013 exhibition 'Death to Death and Other Small Tales".[5] This being a work which was sold to Daskalopoulos after having been reproduced from an original version which resided in the East Village of New York City at the home of the writer Steve Cannon and therein the originality of the object was transferred after the work had been created for a second time or recreated for a first.
