Atlante Occidentale, Daniele Del Giudice, Einaudi Tascabili, 1998, p.78 | 2017

29/11/2017 • 31/01/2018

Magazzino is delighted to announce Massimo Bartolini’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. Following on from his exhibitions in 2002, 2004, 2009 and 2014, this show focuses on new works the artist has created especially for this occasion. Titled Atlante Occidentale, Daniele Del Giudice, Einaudi Tascabili, 1998, pag.78, the exhibition deliberately starts with the typical formula of margin notes, as an approach to comparing things, and as a reference to some other “place”. This reference is in itself a container, because a “Western Atlas” in the show already exists – the works that make up the exhibition feature symbols and signs that are typically Western, albeit cast into embarrassment by a presence/absence that contradicts their form and amplifies their meaning….Continua / More

Maskers | 2017

28/09/2017 • 15/11/2017

I’m getting better and better at drawing myself. I’m starting to get to know my mug, my mask. What is a self-portrait? Someone who denies he’s dead.   Jan Fabre, Antwerp, 3 February 1980     Magazzino is delighted to announce Maskers, the gallery’s sixth solo show by Belgian artist Jan Fabre, curated by Melania Rossi. This project brings together some of Fabre’s sculptural work that explores the theme of self-portraits, both as a form of enquiry into human nature and as an attempt to represent and liberate the various personalities that make up a person’s identity. When looking at ourselves in the mirror, do we really see ourselves? We may think we are able to seize our own image,…Continua / More

4 Volte Io | 2017

25/05/2017 • 25/07/2017

Magazzino is delighted to announce a third personal gallery show for Portuguese artist Pedro Cabrita Reis, following on from his shows in 2006 and 2012. Cabrita Reis is back in Rome for a gallery show two years after presenting his work La Casa di Roma, which has remained on display ever since at the MAXXI Museum in Via Guido Reni. The artist has chosen to develop this exhibition by starting from a measurement and a canon – his own body, a frequent feature in his works, through sculpture, painting and photography. The four resulting works span the gallery’s two spaces through the dimension of four bodily positions: standing up, lying down, leaning, and with open arms. As so often in…Continua / More

Codex | 2017

20/04/2017 • 21/05/2017

Magazzino is proud to present Antonio Biasiucci’s fourth solo show at the gallery.The exhibition focuses on his recently-made Codex series, exhibited in 2016 at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples in a show curated by Gianluca Riccio. La Fondazione Banco di Napoli invited Biasiucci to use his eye to tell the story of the materials conserved in its historical archive – the oldest and largest collection of banking documents in the world. Spread over 330 rooms, the archive houses more than 60,000 meticulously-catalogued binders, each of which bears an apparently indecipherable numerical code. Adopting an anthropologist’s approach, Biasiucci spent three months going back through the silent history laid to rest within each folder, encompassing a chronology of Naples and the…Continua / More
