press release

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, "Yesterday Begins Tomorrow" 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.

Powered by the Deste Foundation, Charley is a contemporary art publication series edited by Maurizio Cattelan (artist), Massimiliano Gioni [one of the curators of Monument to Now (Athens, 2004), co-curator of Manifesta 5 (San Sebastian, 2004) and artistic director of the Trussardi Foundation in Milan], and Ali Subotnick (co-founder/partner of The Wrong Gallery** and Charley magazine and curator), and designed by The Purtill Family Business.

For the exhibition "Yesterday Begins Tomorrow" the publication comes to life presenting works form the Dakis Joannou Collection by artists who have acquired international visibility in the '80s and early '90s: this exhibition aims to discover the future by excavating the past. Just like Charley, "Yesterday Begins Tomorrow" is a time machine, bringing out the past and casting it into a new light.

Artists: Jonathan BOROFSKY, CLEGG & GUTTMANN, CRASH , Grenville DAVEY, John DOGG, Cheryl DONEGAN, Nancy DWYER, Jon KESSLER, Annette LEMIEUX, Simon LINKE, Matt MULLICAN, Peter NAGY, PRUITT & EARLY, David ROBBINS, Rob SCHOLTE, Peter SCHUYFF, Mark STAHL, William STONE, Meyer VAISMAN, Jan VERCRUYSSE, WALLACE & DONOHUE, Meg WEBSTER, Bill WOODROW.
