Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, 05.06.–29.09.2019
Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation hosts the Notti magiche. Arte italiana anni novanta dalla Collezione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo [Magic nights. Italian art from the 1990’s, from the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Collection] exhibition, curated by Giorgina Bertolino and Irene Calderoni, from June 5 to September 29.
Italy 1990: the new decade kicked off with the FIFA World Cup. The stadiums of twelve Italian cities would resound with a song by Edoardo Bennato and Gianna Nannini “Un’estate italiana” [“An Italian Summer” is the literal translation, while “To be number one” was the English version title of the original anthem song of the 1990 FIFA World Cup, taking place in Italy. Translator’s Note]. The song is all about rules of the game, adventures and goals (the “Azzurri”, in other words, “Italian ones” scored by Totò Schillaci). The title of the anthem changed eventually and we all ended [...]
Galleria Continua - Les Moulins, 30.04.–30.09.2017
In collaboration with the collection di Gropello. Event in favor of Save the Children, with the support of Italiana Valutazione Rischi, Isopan, PoderNuovo and Sarment
“Autodisporsi”, which literally means “self dispose”, is the subtitle of this exhibition and a famous work by Alighiero Boetti. As the subtitle suggests, the selection has been made by the artworks themselves, as these pieces have proven their capacity to “autodisporsi”, self-dispose and find a rational placement in the structure of the exhibition thus making it possible. Due to their strong impact, these art pieces are able to attract the viewer’s attention and connect with her/him creating a personal relationship. This approach offers the possibility to discover a different way to enjoy contemporary art leaving aside the daily rush of life. The visitor should allow himself to travel through this visual experience without any preconceived ideas and compare his own [...]
Fondazione Memmo, 04.05.–15.10.2017
Fondazione Memmo presents Giuseppe Gabellone’s first solo exhibition in Rome, curated by Francesco Stocchi, thereby confirming its mission to promote contemporary art through site-specific creations and new works.
Characterized by a strong formal rigour and a critical approach to traditional artistic media such as photography and sculpture, Gabellone’s work is particularly sensitive to the surrounding exhibition space and its various sensory aspects. The artist’s approach is a continuation of the tradition of great sculpture’s innovators, such as Medardo Rosso, Umberto Boccioni and Arturo Martini: by emphasizing the dynamic relationships between light and shadow, full and empty, the artist expands the concept of sculpture to other techniques and practices, addressing the central issues that arise from his activity, especially in those areas where the mediated experience attempts to replace direct perception.
The exhibition Giuseppe Gabellone is [...]

Triennale di Milano, 26.11.2015–06.03.2016
La Triennale di Milano presents Ennesima / Umpteenth. An Exhibition of Seven Exhibitions of Italian Art, curated by Vincenzo de Bellis. This 'exhibition of exhibitions' will include over a hundred and twenty works by more than seventy artists, in a display extending over the entire first floor of La Triennale. It will offer a possible interpretation of the past fifty years of contemporary art in Italy, from the early sixties through to the present day.
The title is inspired by a work by Giulio Paolini, Ennesima (appunti per la descrizione di sette tele datate 1973), the first version of which, dated 1973, is divided into seven paintings. This gives the number of exhibition projects included in de Bellis's exhibition for La Triennale: seven independent exhibitions, in the form of notes or suggestions that explore different aspects, links, coincidences and discrepancies in the recent history of Italian art. Seven working hypotheses that examine, reinterpret and tell the story of [...]
