Treatise on Ancient Design | 2018

26/09/2018 • 10/11/2018

Magazzino is pleased to present Treatise on Ancient Design, by Yan Xing. This is the Chinese artist’s first solo exhibition in Italy. It will be on view from September 26th through January 5th, 2019. Yan Xing is known for his multi-component, interdisciplinary projects that combine diverse media such as performance, video, photography, installation and painting. He has built a complex, compelling body of work that reflects critically on how history is manufactured today. Through the intensive investigation of literature, history, and art theory, he has worked out an artistic narrative governed by its own logic. His works circulate around large themes such as negativity, resistance, and order, exploring their complex interrelations. In his exhibition at Magazzino, Yan Xing focuses on…Continua / More

TBT (To Be Titled, Turn Back Time) | Group Show | 2018

21/06/2018 • 28/07/2018

Magazzino is happy to announce the second leg of the group exhibition TBT (To Be Titled, Turn Back Time), that will open Thursday 21 June 2018. The exhibition, begun on May 11th, will be redesigned with the addition of works by Renato Leotta, Yudith Levin, Jorge Peris and Alessandro Piangiamore, renewing the idea of a faceted dialogue between gallery artists (Peris, Piangiamore) and non-represented artist (Leotta, Levin) whose works will integrate with the ones by Massimo Bartolini, Guillermo Galindo, David Schutter, Nicola Martini, Matteo Nasini and Namsal Siedlecki already on show at the gallery.   If the works exhibited in To Be Titled seemed to advance a reflection on their own condition, of being “final” and “finished” objects but still…Continua / More

TBT (To Be Titled, Turn Back Time) | Group Show | 2018

11/05/2018 • 21/05/2018

Magazzino is happy to announce the new group exhibition TBT (To Be Titled, Turn Back Time), that will connotate the gallery’s spring and summer program. The exhibition will articulate in two parts, the first opening Friday 11 May 2018 and featuring works by Massimo Bartolini, Guillermo Galindo, David Schutter, Nicola Martini, Matteo Nasini e Namsal Siedlecki. To Be Titled stems from the idea of a multi-voice dialogue between the works of three among the gallery’s artists (Bartolini, Galindo, Schutter) and three young Italian artists, not represented by Magazzino (Martini, Nasini, Siedlecki). The spontaneity that led the preparation of this exhibition is already evident from its title, which reveals the typical condition of expectation underlying the act of creation, and expresses within…Continua / More

Lazzarini Pickering / Mobile Mobile | 2018

16/02/2018 • 30/03/2018

Notes from an interview with Claudio Lazzarini and Carl Pickering   «‘Mobile/Mobile’… Why on earth did you pick such an odd title?» «Because it immediately communicates that the star of the show is a mobile rather than a work of art, that its authors are architects rather than artists.» «Why repeat the word mobile?» «Because mobiles are usually static; this one, on the other hand, is actually mobile.»   «Like a Calder-style mobile?» «No, like a mobile…mobile.»   It begins an almost Dadaist conversation with Carl Pickering and Claudio Lazzarini, architects rather than artists (accuracy obliges), about this mobile/mobile with its severe lines and kaleidoscopic surfaces… A work that seems to have been generated by the explosion of an abstract…Continua / More
