Massimo Bartolini | 2014

Magazzino¬†is proud to announce the opening of the new exhibition by Massimo Bartolini at the gallery, his fourth after the ones in 2002, 2004 and 2009. For this occasion, Bartolini has conceived four new works across the three gallery spaces. The exhibition is built around four moments, ranging from sculpture, audio-visual installation, drawing and photography, highlighting Bartolini‚Äôs ability across different media. All the works reflect on the idea of an ‚Äúearthly chaos‚ÄĚ, with the manifest intention of systematizing, portraying, even worshipping it. 20 Ottobre, 27 Novembre¬†is a photographic series of huts built along the coast of Tuscany, in proximity to the artist‚Äôs house – an everyday place, where these buildings appear as a kind of spontaneous urbanization, solely constituted of…Continua / More

Do we feel with our brain and think with our heart? | 2014

Magazzino is proud to announce the fourth exhibition by Jan Fabre in the gallery, three years after Tribute to HieŐąronymus Bosch in Congo in 2011. For this occasion, Fabre will present for the first time in Italy the film Do we feel with our brain and think with our heart?, the result of a three year journey with the prominent scientist Giacomo Rizzolatti. In many of his recent works Fabre researches a dialogue between art and science, being inspired particularly by neurology over the last ten years, a time during which this dialogue was practically enacted through collaborations with several famous scientists. Do we feel with our brain and think with our heart? is the result of a dialogue between…Continua / More

Ti do la mia giovinezza | 2014

Magazzino is pleased to announce Ti do la mia giovinezza, a new solo exhibition by Mircea Cantor. Two years after his solo exhibition at MACRO in 2012, Cantor (b. Oradea, 1977; lives and works in Paris) returns with an exhibition project based on new works created specifically for the gallery. Mircea Cantor brings a formal and aesthetic simplicity with strong poetical and political connotations, where ‚Äúpolitical‚ÄĚ is understood as a capacity to act on the present and the individual (often referred to as a subject, namely, a person) through association with universal themes ¬† Future Gifts is a work based on a large installation that he originally created in 2008 at the Kunsthalle Mucsarnok in Budapest, featuring seven concrete sculptures…Continua / More

Myopia Anthology | 2014

Magazzino¬†is proud to announce the fifth solo exhibition by¬†Vedovamazzei¬†(Italian duo, born in 1991 by Simeone Crispino and Stella Scala), entitled¬†Myopia Anthology. Vedovamazzei has structured this exhibition with the idea of the thematic collection, along a chronological discourse through almost twenty years of activity. As often happens in Vedovamazzei‚Äôs work, a complex visual system connected to the impossibility of understanding or precisely circumscribing visual signs, is tackled through a light, ironical attitude; the viewer is confronted with ambiguous signs and objects, hardly assignable to precise categories. In this perspective and through this modality,¬†impossible¬†images and objects take form, as¬†Apparato Respiratorio¬†(Breathing System, 1992),¬†Shortsighted Mirror¬†(2002) that seems to quote weird inventions from the 17th Century. Similarly, even through a totally different visual codification, the¬†Coma…Continua / More
