ANDREA GALVANI SELECTED WORKS 2006 | 2016
Curated by Margherita de Pilati
14 October 2016 - 22 January 2017
Opening and Performance: Sat., 15 October, 7 PM
Guided Tour with the Artist: Sun., 16 October, 10 AM
Mart Museum | Galleria CIVICA
Via Belenzani 44, 38122 Trento, Italy
The Mart Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto proudly directs its focus to the research of Andrea Galvani (Verona, 1973), one of the most important Italian artists of his generation in the international field, with an unprecedented survey exhibition of work produced in the last decade. The show will be followed by the artist's first monograph, published by the Museum, including text by Giorgio Verzotti.
The museum is transformed into a laboratory for exploration and analysis with a number of Galvani's most acclaimed international investigations: The End Trilogy (2013-2016), A Few Invisible Sculptures (2012-2016), Higgs Ocean (2008-2011), and Deconstruction of a Mountain (2004-2005) engage in dialogue for the first time. Projects exist in a perpetually transformative state: documenting collective actions and visionary experiments; the instability of physical phenomena, paradoxically monumental and ephemeral. Through a compact, interdisciplinary itinerary including photography, sculpture, drawing, performance, video and audio installations, this exhibition deconstructs distinctions between visible and invisible, continuity and temporality - freeing a space where limits are distorted and boundaries expanded, elements of a more profound and complex existence. Audiences are cast into a dimension that is both conceptually dense and emotionally charged, concrete yet metaphysical. Through an extraordinary selection of works, many of which have never been seen before in Italy, the path continues on the gallery’s lower level, revealing the strength and coherence of Galvani’s effort in the last ten years.
Artissima Fair November 6-8, 12-8pm
Artissima is Italy’s most important contemporary art fair. Since its establishment in 1994, it has combined the presence of an international market with a focus on experimentation and research.
Nearly two hundred galleries from around the world participate every year. In addition to the fair, Artissima is also composed of three art sections, headed by a board of international curators and museum directors, devoted to emerging artists, performances and rediscovering the great pioneers of contemporary art.
Artissima will be held in Torino from 6 to 8 November at the Oval, a glass pavilion built for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in the industrial archaeology complex of the Lingotto.

September 18 - October 31, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, September 18, 6-11 PM
7 PM Performance with physicist ELOY AYÓN-BEATO, Ph.D.
MARSO Galería Arte Contemporáneo
Berlín 31, Col. Juárez 06600, México City
MARSO is proud to present Epílogo — the third exhibition from The End trilogy by Andrea Galvani — on view September 18 - October 31, 2015. During the opening reception on Friday, September 18th, the artist has invited Eloy Ayón-Beato, Theoretical Physicist and expert in black holes, for a collaborative intervention in the space.
Epílogo introduces viewers to the psychological landscape that serves as the foundation for The End, presenting three new site-specific installations. Following shows in Lima and New York, Epílogo completes the exhibition series of complex, cross-disciplinary works including photography, drawings, installation, video, audio, and performance. Expanding the project's scope, this show extends the timeline of The End in both directions, from its theoretical origins to the genesis of a new stage in the continuum.
Epílogo inverts the artistic process, allowing access to the conceptual and scientific universe that generated the work. Exhibiting primary source material compiled through Galvani's intensive research, viewers can travel inside the artist's mind to the intelligible space where creation begins. A new dimension is thus exposed as an architectonic blueprint, a schematic portrait of the project's evolution.
LANDSCAPE AS A BRAIN
July 18 - September 25, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 18, 12pm
Curro y Poncho, Blvd. Puerta de Hierro 5210-PB
45116 Zapopan, Jalisco, México
Curro y Poncho is proud to present Landscape as a Brain: Mimesi de un anti-monumento — Andrea Galvani’s premier solo exhibition in Guadalajara — on view July 18 - September 25, 2015.
Landscapes pierced, fractured, deconstructed, and exploded into thousands of pieces. Landscapes used as weapons, protective shields, habitable structures. Contorted landscapes, reassembled and restored, divided into new archaeological remains.
Landscape as a Brain is a retrospective reconfiguration of projects produced by the artist from 2005 to the present. An interdisciplinary survey of Galvani’s work, the exhibition includes photography, sculpture, and collage. Suspended in remote and dilated time, sites in the show seem perturbed by the artist, whose actions and structural interventions investigate the relationship between visible and invisible space. Modifying and distorting natural surroundings, Galvani transforms the landscape into a laboratory for cerebral observation and mysterious physical experiments. The central installation is a reconstruction of one of the first actions of the artist's career, in which he lived illegally for over a month in a desolate and forbidden military area. In an act of geopolitical defiance, Galvani transposed a mimetic landscape within the original scene, camouflaging himself in his environment. The landscape thus became a sort of armor against itself, simultaneously revealing the fragility of artificially imposed boundaries. Constructing geometric geographies that regenerate and document violent physical phenomena, the artist creates works that heighten our senses, articulate and extend the limits of perception. Monuments are paradoxically ephemeral, collapsed and condensed as anti-monuments in non-Euclidean space. Organic geometry acquires dimensional multiplicity, undergoing disruptive projective transformations. Galvani seems to open a realm of hyper-reality, a manifold topology beyond the perimeter of physicality.

ANDREA GALVANI | THE END
An Art in General New Commission
May 16 - June 27, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 16, 6-8pm
Art in General, 79 Walker Street, 6th Floor Main Gallery, New York
Afterparty to follow at the W Hotel 57th Floor Rooftop, 8:30-11pm
123 Washington Street (Use Residency Entrance on Albany Street)
RSVP to Lindsey Berfond
Art in General is pleased to present The End — a New Commission by Andrea Galvani on the 6th floor. Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, May 16, 6 to 8 pm, followed by an afterparty at the W Hotel with the launch of Galvani’s new limited edition.
Art in General unveils a unique stage of The End — a multichannel video installation documenting one collective action, an homage to the heliocentric model of our solar system championed by Galileo Galilei, father of modern cosmology. Over the course of months, Andrea Galvani coordinated with local cameramen to film the sunrise along the eastern coastlines of five different Central American countries. On January 8, the anniversary of Galileo’s death in 1642, the event was filmed in over 30 different locations simultaneously. Discrepancies between atmospheric conditions, the sensitivity of 16mm film technology, and the movements of each individual manifest as a prism of time and space. The resulting video installation juxtaposes a multiplicity of perspectives, expanding the horizon into a unified visual field. Subjective perception is thus transformed into a new, singular vision. Geological time began with the first sunrise: a recurring event representing the primordial chronography of our planet’s movement around the sun. We are part of this continuum for a brief moment, a single oscillation in the pendulum of cosmic existence. The End presents the opportunity to witness the sunrise ad infinitum.

Deception is the very thing that forms the human order and separates us from our wild companions. Unlike humans, the animal does not know lying and deceit. Animals don’t make bargains, to be upheld or broken. The capacity to deceive themselves is the superiority of humans over animal, and allows them to escape the knowledge of their own mortality. Though this gap of consciousness elevates us from the wild beast nevertheless we live in the body of an animal.

LANDSCAPE AS A BRAIN | A CONVERSATION BETWEEN
JOVANA STOKIC, ANDREA GALVANI AND MATHIAS KESSLER
Friday October 4th, 2013 7 - 8 PM
Y Gallery | 165 Orchard Street New York, NY
Y Gallery is pleased to invite you to be part of Landscape as a Brain, a open conversation between art historian and curator Jovana Stokic and artists Andrea Galvani and Mathias Kessler. This gathering also acts as a closing reception for their dual solo show In Cold Blood.
Where does the landscape start? Where are its borders?
In Andrea Galvani and Mathias Kessler’s work the landscape manifest itself as an extension of the body and the memoy. The two artists have traveled to the cold- est confines of the planet where they confronted the overwhelming grandiosity of nature. For instance, by illuminating large parts of icy landscapes, they tried to conquer an otherwise unreachable place. Only to reveal how a journey as ambitious as these can solely manifest extraordinary attempts through significant works.
Jovana Stokic is a Belgrade-born, New York-based art historian and curator. She holds a PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Her dis- sertation, “The Body Beautiful: Feminine Self-Representations 1970–2007,” analyzes works of several women artists—Marina Abramovic, Martha Rosler, Joan Jonas—since the 1970s, particularly focusing on the notions of self-representation and beauty. She has curated several thematic exhibitions and performance events in the United States, Italy, Spain, and Serbia. Her essay, “The Art of Marina Abramovic: Leaving the Balkans, Entering the Other Side” appeared in the catalogue for The Artist Is Present (2010) at the Museum of Modern Art. Stokic was a fellow at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; a researcher at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the curator of the Kimmel Center Galleries, New York University; and the performance curator at Location One, New York. She has taught art history at New York University, Fashion Institute of Technology and is on the faculty of the MFA Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts, New York. Stokic is deputy chair, MA Curatorial Practice at SVA.

IN COLD BLOOD | ANDREA GALVANI, MATHIAS KESSLERY
Curated by Cecilia Jurado
September 11 - October 6, 2013
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 11th, 6 - 9 pm
Y Gallery | 165 Orchard Street | New York, NY 10002
Y Gallery is pleased to present In Cold Blood a selection of works by Italian artist, Andrea Galvani, and Austrian artist, Mathias Kessler curated by Cecilia Jurado.
The two artists have traveled to the coldest confines of the planet where they confronted the overwhelming grandiosity of nature. For instance, by illuminating large parts of icy landscapes, they tried to conquer an otherwise unreachable place. Only to reveal how a journey as ambitious as these can solely manifest extraordinary attempts through significant works.
Galvani has used photography for his project. We witness an existentialist trip charged with loneliness and fascination by discovery. Kessler has chosen digital renderings, photography and a mirror that melts and freezes while the spectator sees his/her image being reflected. This last work, the mirror, could synthesize the nerve of the exhibition. The seeking of truth in the vain of explorers of the past could be an introspective trip to unknown sides of our human condition.

IL MONDO DEGLI OGGETTI / THE WORLD OF OBJECTS
Opening Reception Friday June 14 th, 2013 at 5:30 PM
From June 17th 2013 the exhibition is permanently open to the public Monday to Friday, 8:30 AM - 7:00 PM
Unicredit Art Gallery Via Garibaldi 1, Verona, Italy
Handan Börüteçene, Giuseppe Penone, Robin Rhode, Andrea Galvani, Maria Friber, Michael Johansson
The UniCredit Art Gallery was inaugurated this month in Verona, building on our initiative to open cultural spaces free to the public at some of our flagship branches. The very first exhibition at this gallery, located inside our newly renovated Via Garibaldi branch, is titled, Il Mondo degli Oggetti (The World of Objects).
The show features a selection of contemporary works from the UniCredit Art Collection that present us with new perspectives on everyday objects.These pieces by two Italian and four international artists challenge us to rethink how we represent, incorporate or interact with various objects in our daily lives. For Handan Börüteçene, objects give voice to the history of places. To Giuseppe Penone, objects are a bridge between humans and substance, while Robin Rhode displays them as a creative dialogue. But whether objects are the mysterious or unexpected presences of Andrea Galvani, accumulations of Maria Friberg or complex assemblages of Michael Johansson, the exhibition shows that objects interact with our spaces and with us, and speak to our time and history.

Water is protagonist of this project, it tells us the relations, communications, feelings and aspirations that move through this element as a vehicle to express a mood. Water is the common feature of all works exhibited, its roaming sound attempts to hide feelings of distress, diving into water can be a way to recover the outside world. Furthermore, water means sharing, interpreting inclusive messages, water gives us the possibility to reconvert a common good into more productive elements. All this is told through the works of artists who were able to create an original dialogue with water, sometimes joyful, often painful, but always thoughtful.

Public talk on Sunday May 5 2013, from 3.30 pm :
Tomàs Saraceno, Esko Mannikko, Cristina De Middel, Andrea Galvani in conversation with Yael Lubin, Marinella Paderni and Riccardo Panattoni.
"Una volta trafitto il cielo e raggiunto l’ultimo strato della ionosfera, una qualsiasi fonte di luce a cui venga imposta una direzione è in grado di viaggiare per sempre verso le profondità più remote dello spazio"
Con questa dichiarazione si apriva Higgs Ocean di Andrea Galvani, progetto esposto nel 2011 alla Biennale di Mosca e a numerose mostre internazionali, che viene ora per la prima volta riunito in uno spazio Istituzionale Italiano. La mostra a cura di Marinella Paderni fa parte del ciclo di personali ospitate da Fotografia Europea nella splendida cornice dei Chiostri di San Pietro. Per l’edizione 2013, che si svolgerà tra maggio e giugno, con tre giornate inaugurali dal 3 al 5 maggio, il tema scelto è Cambiare. Fotografia e responsabilità. Trattandosi di una riflessione a tutto campo sull’immagine contemporanea, si confrontano sul tema non solo fotografi ma anche intellettuali, artisti, filosofi e scrittori. Il punto di partenza è l’insegnamento di Luigi Ghirri: la possibilità, attraverso l’immagine, di guardare al mondo come non lo si è mai fatto prima.

Public Talk on Saturady June 8th, 2013 9:30 pm
Rocca Malatestiana, Piazzale Malatesta
Centrale Fotografia, Fano, Italy | June 7 / 8 / 9, 2013
L’immagine fotografica torna ad essere protagonista nel centro storico di Fano con la V Edizione di Centrale Fotografia, rassegna annuale di eventi sulla fotografia e l’arte contemporanea. Quest’anno la manifestazione festeggia il suo primo “lustro”, cinque anni di intensa attività all’insegna dell’immagine analizzata nelle sue infinite declinazioni. L’intento della manifestazione è infatti quello di fare una radiografia dell’attuale panorama artistico italiano, attraverso incontri con gli autori, mostre, conferenze, tavole rotonde, eventi collaterali, momenti di riflessione sulla fotografia e l’arte attuale, oltre ad offrire l’opportunità di scoprire bellissimi luoghi della città, come la Rocca Malatestiana, dove quest’anno si svolgono i principali appuntamenti di Centrale Fotografia.
Negli anni precedenti la rassegna ha ricordato la Scuola Fotografica Marchigiana: Mario Giacomelli, Giuseppe Cavalli e Luigi Crocenzi (2009), in seguito ha ospitato importanti artisti come Franco Vaccari e Olivo Barbieri (2010), Mario Cresci e Paola Di Bello (2011), Alessandra Spranzi e Paolo Ventura (2012). Gli ospiti d’onore di quest’anno sono due altrettanto affermati artisti internazionali contemporanei: Andrea Galvani e Paola De Pietri. Come tradizione si raccontano al pubblico in una conferenza dal taglio retrospettivo, capace di trasmettere il senso e l’evoluzione della loro produzione nel tempo. Gli incontri con gli ospiti d’onore sono accompagnati da proiezioni d’immagini e arricchiti dal dibattito col pubblico, alimentando il dialogo e favorendo la comprensione di una ricerca visiva spesso complessa e articolata.

Eight conversations between Luca Panaro and artists of different approaches but nonetheless interpreters of the strictest contemporaneity. Their chosen medium is photography but their cultural field is art. Reflection on the image and its most recent use makes this brief collection of interviews a handy tool for decoding the present.

MARSO is pleased to announce Terrarium - a dual solo exhibition by artists Andrea Galvani and Tim Hyde. Terrarium is a conversation in five rooms taking place simultaneously. The historical architecture of the gallery is used by the artists to enclose a dialog between separate geographic explorations of time and memory. The exhibition itself is alive and in flux, featuring a collaboratively-built modular sculpture that is continuously reconfigured to enable conversations and actions with artists and curators in Mexico City.The show includes more than 25 works of photography, collage, drawing, video, and sculpture. New works are combined with projects that have been exhibited internationally at venues that include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Moscow Biennale, the Ar/ge Kunst Galerie Museum in Bolzano Italy, the Poznan Biennale in Poland, and the Whitney Museum of Art in New York. Terrarium marks the first exhibition by both artists in Mexico.
In addition to the exhibition at Marso Gallery, the artists will present a special installation at Zona Maco 2013, derived from their ongoing collaborative project, The SkullSessions. The Skull Sessions are conversations rendered as form. Each Session is a dialogue recorded and reshaped into experimental publications, objects, images, and installations.

The new world that is taking shape demands to be explored by a wide range of artistic languages, with the aim of closely confronting the new frontiers of reality. As with other countries in the past, photography in Italy seems, more than ever, to be in harmony with the times, capable of integrating the dominant characteristics of the present era. The photographic composition involves a process of intensification and actualization of reality, a synthesis, exactly as poetry distills concepts with essential, perfectly balanced words, without there being a single superfluous one. The gift of the image and the brevity of verse are places from which to observe our own soul and to see precisely what it is doing, thinking, or feeling. In 2013, Year of Italian Culture in the United States, contemporary Italian photography and poetry verse join together as protagonists to show America the special, all-Italian relationship between tradition and renewal, past and future.

THE UNKNOW I MEDIATIONS BIENNALE
Curated by Tomasz Wendland (Poland), Denise Carvalho (USA/Brazil), Friedhelm Mennekes (Germany), Fumio Nanjo (Japan)
Opening on September 14th - On view till October 14th 2012
“The unknow exists with the same intensity as the known or everything already comprehended. Perhaps a better way of putting it is: what exists, exists; what does not exist, exists as well.”
Among artists participating: Adel Abdessemed, Nicole Ahland, Paulo Bruscky, Benjamin Bergmann, Nick Cave, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Richard Fajnor, Andrea Galvani, Gabriela Golder, Nick Hornby, Ali Hossaini, Tadeusz Kantor, Adam Kalinowski, Algis Kizys, Dariusz Kowalski, Mischa Kuball, Piotr Kurka, Sang Nam Lee, Simon Lee, Daniel Lergon, Kristin Lucas, Lenore Malen, Teresa Margolles, Alice Miceli, Simon Morley, Oskar Muñoz, Glexis Novoa, Julia Oldham, Robert Parke Harrison, Shana Parke Harrison, Bernd Jansen, Magdalena Jetelovà, Fernando Prats, Nicolas Provost, Tim Roda, Robert Rumas, Regina Silveira, Alexander Steig, Adriana Varella, Alejandro Vidal, Alex Villar, Bill Viola and many others.
MEDIATIONS BIENNALE is presently the largest visual art event in Central Europe and the only one of its kind in Poland. Its central European location, at the crossroads of many cultures, allows it to assume a role of a mediator between Asia and Europe. The geographical location of Poland, at the meeting point of the two continents, has stimulated the development of this unique cultural perspective, different to the postcolonial one of Western Europe. A long tradition of mediations, laying foundations for MEDIATION BIENNALE, goes back to the year 1989 when a conference and series of international exhibitions entitled Civilisation and Culture took place in Poznań. Over the years, it has become an important mark in many Polish and international calendars of art events, thus attracting world famous curators and art critics, as well as the most distinguished international artists. 2012 Mediations Biennale continues the heritage of exhibitions, which, in a variety of ways, talk about all that is unknowable and spiritual in art.
Among artists participating in previous editions of Mediations Biennale, there were so far: Anselm Kiefer, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Barthélémy Toguo, Blue Noses, Braco Dimitrijević, Günter Grass, Günter Uecker, Harun Farocki, Hermann Nitsch, Heri Dono, Hossein Golba, Jaan Toomik, Jarosław Kozłowski, Józef Robakowski, Kein Feingold, Kimsooja, Koen Vanmechelen, Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Marina Abramović, Masaki Fujihata, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Miguel Angel Rios, Phil Niblock, Eduardo Kac, Sanja Iveković, Shilpa Gupta, Sigalit Landau, Sun Yuan - Peng Yu, Tim Ulrichs, Weng Fen, William Kentridge, Zbigniew Libera.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE INVISIBLE I TATIANA KOUROCHKINA CONTEMPORARY ART PROJECT
Text by Valentín Roma
Tatiana Kourochkina Contemporary Art Project, Barcelona
Thursday 21 June 2012, 6PM
The Architecture of the Invisible brings together a set of works by Andrea Galvani and William Lamson in a show that introduces the work of both artists in Spain.
Articulated around the complex perception of nature in the contemporary world, this exhibition examines the ways in which landscape transcends merely cultural images and how art can encourage us to experience and reconfigure our environment starting from two very different positions.
Thus the exhibition space welcomes a story filled with subtleties, a conversation up in the actual gallery space and in the spectator’s awareness. Each work is a sort of window that opens on to the contemplation of the unrepresentable, a kind of lattice from which to behold the architecture of the invisible, as suggested by the title of the project.
The natural environments that appear in the works by Galvani and Lamson have a phantasmagorical quality about them precisely because they are pure morphology.
Hence the fact that the poetic value of their respective landscapes doesn’t stem from abandonment or fantasy but quite the opposite—from that excess of verisimilitude that makes them exceptional, unprecedented.

UNCOMMON GROUND I FLOWERS GALLERY
Curated by Chris Littlewood
Flowers Gallery, London
Opening on Wednesday 11 July 2012, 6PM
Uncommon Ground is an exploration of environmental interventions in contemporary photography. Inspired by the work of Keith Arnatt and Gabriel Orozco, this exhibition aims to obscure the intersection between photographs of observed reality and artistically altered reality. Here, environment is taken in its broadest sense: natural ecosystems, urban and suburban space, domestic interiors, industrial landscapes and even political arenas. A selection of represented and invited artists’ work spanning the last decade, across a variety of international locations, will be on view.
Documentarians create visual evidence of human interference with a growing propensity for scale and complexity; they describe complicated phenomena by
embedding concepts within their subject matter. Other practioners perform figurative or sculptural interventions by physically inserting themselves and their subjects into an environment. They engage, manipulate, transform, or become transformed by their surroundings and thereby communicate through evidence of their own disruptions. Both approaches have strong historical lineages – the latter partly influenced by a boom in conceptual land art of the 1960’s. Convergence of these strands is becoming intricately intertwined creating new possibilities for photography. The work in this exhibition encourages wanderings across modes of practice, re-considering subjects of photographic documentary as inherently artistic, and the anthropological potential of seemingly irrational artistic interference.

CALDER FOUNDATION I "OH, YOU MEAN CELLOPHANE AND ALL THAT CRAP"
Curated by Katherine Cohn (visual and performance art), Victoria Brooks (film and video), Kevin Barry and Gryphon Rower-Upjohn (music)
The Mckittrick Hotel, 542 W. 27th St., New York, NY
Saturday 5 May 2012, 2PM - 2AM
In his interview with Katherine Kuh from 1962, Calder recreates the term realist within his own vocation: to envision a thought and “conjure” it into space. As Kuh moves to center the dialogue, Calder’s ultimate remark "Oh, you mean cellophane and all that crap" clarifies that the modern world and its materials alone were not as important as his aim to lead the viewer to understand a concept—often not even a visual one. Through the innovative, unconventional use of materials, industrial or otherwise, he conceived works that could activate their environment with unpredictable entities such as sound, movement, chance, and anticipation.
Immateriality and its transformation of space, so integral to Calder’s work, underscores the Calder Foundation’s Oh, you mean cellophane and all that crap. Embodying Calder’s equivocal sentiment through visual and performance art, music, film and video, the 12-hour programming takes as its point of departure a 1933 sound-making mobile that conjures into space not a tangible representation of an object, but the disquieting experience of sound and anticipation. Provoking a similarly immersive experience will be works by contemporary artists and performers that swell beyond their material confines, activating the larger space around them with such phenomena as light, scent, sound, air, anticipation, and disorientation.
Rather than fixed, the curating is open form and gives precedence to components of real-time experience such as chance and the unexpected.
Performance, sculpture, installations and film by:
Cory Arcangel, Darren Bader, Alexander Calder, Nina Canell, Dan Flavin, Andrea Galvani, Haroon Mirza, Kira Lynn Harris, Zilvinas Kempinas, James Turrell, Allora and Calzadilla, Francis Alÿs, Sebastian Buerkner, Mary Ellen Bute, Amy Granat, Laurent Grasso, Yves Klein, Duncan Marquiss, Laurent Montaron, Alexandre Singh, Anri Sala, and Roman Signer, James Lee Byars, Mayumi Ishino, Liz Magic Laser, Haroon Mirza, Aki Sasamoto, and Jacolby Satterwhite.

ANDREA GALVANI | A FEW INVISIBLE SCULPTURES
Meulensteen, New York
Opening Reception: Thursday February 23, 6-8 PM
February 23 - April 21, 2012
Meulensteen is pleased to announce the opening of Andrea Galvani's first solo exhibition with the gallery, entitled A Few Invisible Sculptures. The show will open with a reception for the artist on the evening of Thursday, February 23rd, 2012, from 6 to 8 PM.
What are we talking about when we talk about sculpture? With the rigor and method characteristic of the American writer Raymond Carver, who in 1981 published a collection of short stories entitled, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, Galvani calls widely accepted definitions into question. Thus A Few Invisible Sculptures provides a sober and insightful reflection on the function of contemporary sculpture, radically extending its boundaries. The exhibition will consist of an interdisciplinary body of work including sound sculpture, drawings, text-based works, collages and photographs, which cumulatively delve into phenomenological experiences to convey what the artist describes as an “architecture of the invisible.”
The project began with three minimalist sculptures constructed and later destroyed for the sound installation A Cube, a Sphere, and a Pyramid. Originally recorded in Germany, the audio track documents the echolocation of a group of bats flying around the suspended sculptures. Recorded with extreme precision, it provides a sonar scan of negative space around the objects, which is then played back at an audible frequency in an immersive installation of ten standing speakers. Extending the concept of an open sculpture, the exhibition also includes a text piece documenting a conversation Galvani had with a deaf electromagnetism researcher, collages that collapse memories of space to generate new and unstable forms, and photographs in which sculptures are used to produce actions. In all of these, the loop becomes a means to explore the physicality of consuming experience.

MELANCHOLY IS NOT ENOUGH I CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY ART & CULTURE
Curated by Niels Van Tomme
PAVILION UNICREDIT, Bucharest, ROMANIA
Opening December 15 - 7 pm
December 15, 2011 – February 19, 2012
Participants: Lotte Van den Audenaeren (BE), Anne-James Chaton (FR), Andrea Galvani (IT), Jo Mitchell (UK), Matthias Wermke & Mischa Leinkauf (DE)
A sorrowful pleasure”, according to Bulgarian-French theorist Julia Kristeva, melancholy is assumed to exclude any action. Besieged by one’s grievous state, one can’t react with or against this all-pervasive affective condition. Turning away from deliberately finding pleasure in overpowering sentiments and environments, as the melancholic subject is expected to in most conceptualizations of her state, the artists in this exhibition subvert the looming of melancholia into delight, relentlessly relating the physical places they navigate to the mental states they desire to appropriate.
FOUR MINUTES, THIRTY-THREE SECONDS
Curated by Omar Lopez-Chahoud
LegalArt, Miami, Florida
Opening on Friday, December 2nd, 9am-1pm
On Friday, December 2nd, 9am-1pm, Legal Art will host a Collectors’ Brunch launching “Four Minutes, Thirty-Three Seconds” an exhibition by visiting curator Omar Lopez-Chahoud inspired by the 1960’s Fluxus Movement.
In the spirit of the Fluxus tradition, Omar Lopez-Chahoud has invited international artists, collaboratives, situationists, and curators to present projects in the form of publications, events, discussions, performances, situations, and other actions. These groups and individuals will activate the space in a way similar to the Happenings of the Fluxus Movement, inspired by an anti-art and anti-consumer enthusiasm.
Participants in this exhibition include: Augurari Editions, Rodolfo Andaur, Hackworth Ashley, Spring Break, Monserrat Rojas Corradi, Cat Dove, Viking Funeral, Andrea Galvani, Jay Hines, Scott Hug, Karlo Ibarra, Carlos Irijalba, Brookhart Jonquil, Jason Keeling, Kristin Korolowicz, Liz Magic Laser, Nicolas Lobo, Gean Moreno, Richard Mosse, Ernesto Oroza, Gaston Persico, Manny Prieres, Print and Paste Collective (FAU), Megan Riley, Tom Scicluna, Joaquin Segura, SOMA, Natika Soward, Lara Stein Pardo, Suzanne Stroebe, Third Streaming/Yona Baker, Cecilia Szalkowicz, TM Sisters, Pinar Yolacan and others.
“Four Minutes, Thirty-Three Seconds” revisits the liberated attitude towards the creative process that defines the Fluxus movement. This project coincides with significant exhibitions happening at MOMA, NY; the Grey Art Gallery; NYU and at the Storefront for Art and Architecture, in collaboration with Performa 2011. This leads us to reflect on the similar attitudes between Fluxus actionists and a younger generation of artists as well as the socio-economic context in which these responses arise.
The title of this exhibition makes reference to a piece by composer John Cage, a notable influence on the Fluxus work of Lithuanian-born artist George Maciunas. Maciunas (1931–1978) organized the first Fluxus event in 1961 at the AG Gallery in New York City and the first Fluxus festivals in Europe. The Fluxus art movement in the 1960’s and 1970′s was characterized by a strongly Dadaist attitude, promoting artistic experimentation mixed with social and political activism. Often celebrated anarchistic change, Fluxus members avoided any limiting art theories and spurned pure aesthetic objectives. Their activities resulted in events or situations often called Aktions (works challenging the definition of art) and included performances, guerilla or street theater and concerts of electronic music, many of them similar to what in America were known as Happenings.
REWRITING WORLDS | 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art
Curated by Peter Weibel & Joseph Backstein
Venues: The ARTPLAY Design Center and The TSUM Art Foundation, Moscow, USSR
Opening Reception September 22 11 am
September 23 – October 30, 2011
The Fourth Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art - «Rewriting Worlds» - will begin on Sept. 22, 2011.
The main project will be held in two venues: the ARTPLAY Design Center and the TsUM Art Foundation (the exhibition space of the TsUM department store). Peter Weibel, a prominent artist, new media expert and head of the Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany, is curator of the main project, which will welcome about 80 artists from more than 20 different countries.
The Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art is considered one of the largest, most prestigious and trend-setting contemporary art events in Russia and abroad. It owes its immense popularity to the participation of leading curators, philosophers and experts of present-day art. This year the organizing committee has opted for Peter Weibel to curate the main project. Biennale commissioner Joseph Backstein commented: “Curatorial functions of the main project of the Fourth Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art will be performed in 2011 by Peter Weibel, a famous specialist in the sphere of new media. Unlike the contents and style of the main project of the Third Biennale, this year’s exhibition will show different approaches to how media can be used in the contemporary artistic creative process as well as types of art that are deliberately critical of the role of technology and media in the life of modern civilization.”
This year’s theme is “Rewriting Worlds,” which proclaims that art is a sphere where new things are unceasingly generated. What contemporary artists do is rewrite the existing world conveying their ideas in their artistic work. Weibel believes that the exhibition’s main goal is “to demonstrate different levels of artistic thought — technological, political and psychological.” In light of this, the following artists were invited to take part in the main project: Kader Attia, Chen Chieh-jen, EVOL, Claire Fontaine, Andrea Galvani, Susan Hiller, Rebecca Horn, Manabu Ikeda, Elmgreen & Dragset, Shilpa Gupta, Isaac Julien, Armin Linke, Fabian Marcaccio, Neo Rauch, Rosangela Renno, Timo Toots, Guido Van der Werve and many others. Most of these artists have never been exhibited in Russia! The organizing committee is also currently in talks for renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei to join the main project.

THE GENTLEMEN OF VERONA | EXPERIMENTS ON THE CONTEMPORARY IN ITALY
Curated by Andrea Bruciati
Contemporary and Modern art Museum of Palazzo Forti, Verona
Opening Reception on September 23rd 6-8
September 24th 2011 – January 8th 2012
Artists: Luigi Carboni, Angelo Filomeno, Franco Guerzoni, Emilio Isgrò, Aldo Mondino, Giovanni Morbin,
Luigi Ontani, Anna Galtarossa, Andrea Galvani, Daniele Girardi, Paolo Maggis, Andrea Mastrovito, Sissi,
Alessandro Roma, Thomas Braida, Tomaso De Luca, Elio Germani, Valerio Nicolai, Agne Raceviciute,
Dragana Sapanjos, Giulio Squillacciotti
The project is a clear sign of how strongly private galleries wish to open a dialogue with the city's public administration, providing further stimulus to increasing awareness of creativity today and tomorrow.
This initial experiment, designed and created by Andrea Bruciati, led to the important exhibition “The Gentlemen of Verona: experiments on the contemporary in Italy”. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the wealth of the artistic offerings which has characterised contemporary art in the region, through the works of great authors who have marked the history of Italian art over the last decade and beyond.
The exhibition presents the works of 21 artists, divided up into generations: firmly established artists, mid-career artists and budding young artists. Some of the works have rarely been displayed, while many are brand new or have been specifically created for the exhibition, demonstrating the powerful creative force which has characterised this part of Italy for years.
As the curator Andrea Bruciati underlines, “culture is not a waste of time because, especially when talking about contemporary art, it is needed in the present in order to establish an access channel between our own reality and the changes occurring and the projection of our dreams and ideals, in order to imagine the realisation of these. Finding legitimation in individual utility, such as the emotions and critical intelligence which it is able to generate, it creates a better world for the collective interest”.
As part of this important exhibition, a supporting bilingual Italian/English publication will be created which will include interviews with all stakeholders involved, a great and rich iconography pertaining to the production of the artists in the exhibition as well as unique photographic documentation relating to the history of the galleries involved.

Aperture Foudation 547 West 27th Street , 4th Floor, NY, NY
Opening Reception July 28 th 2011, 7-10 pm
Artists Wanted, in collaboration with Aperture Foundation, is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by artist Andrea Galvani, winner of the 2010 Exposure Prize. Curated by Nora Lawrence, Four Works shows both the breadth of the artist’s work in the last five years and the consistency of his research. Cerebral, austere, and visually sharp, Galvani's images present singular moments in time that invite the viewer to enter rich, seductive and allusive visual universes. Two of the images selected for this exhibition are being shown for the first time in the United States.

Reality and its bi-dimensional metamorphosis are the object of investigation of this photographic exhibition organized by the San Marino Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery and which will take place at the San Francesco Museum from July 16 until October 2. An important appointment meant to illustrate one of the milestone themes around which the entire photography gravitates, but also a precious occasion thanks to the presence of an expert in this subject such as Italo Zannier who, together with Roberto Maggiori, curates this event. Specifically, the theme of this collective exhibition is that of the photographic medium meant as an instrument in balance between truth and fiction, an ambiguous mechanism in which reproduction and representation blend to form a bond which is hard to disentangle. The exhibition involves artists who have dealt with this theme in a special way – occasionally or more regularly – realizing works which in time have revealed to be symbolic. The exhibition hosts fifty among historicized, contemporary and anonymous authors, who have reflected and reflect upon the bi-dimensional translation of the reality realized by the photography, in a period of time which goes from its birth to the present.
The catalogue, containing essays by Italo Zannier and Roberto Maggiori, is printed by the Quinlan Publishing House

ANDREA GALVANI LECTIO MAGISTRALIS
Curated by Giorgio Verzotti
MIA Milan Image Art Fair
Spazi espositivi di Superstudio Più via Tortona
“Una volta trafitto il cielo e raggiunto l’ultimo strato della ionosfera, una qualsiasi fonte di luce a cui venga imposta una direzione è in grado di viaggiare per sempre verso le profondità più remote dello spazio”.
Con questa dichiarazione si apre Higgs Ocean, Lectio magistralis tenuta da Andrea Galvani e presentata da Giorgio Verzotti. L’incontro è il secondo di tre appuntamenti in cui il pubblico di MIA potrà assistere alle lezioni magistrali tenute da tre importanti esponenti del mondo della fotografia internazionale:
Dieter Neubert, Andrea Galvani, Andres Serrano.
Higgs Ocean è un’immersione in un progetto complesso quanto affascinante. Andrea Galvani, che lo scorso anno ha attraversato il freddo Oceano Artico per settimane, a bordo di un’imbarcazione a vela tecnologicamente attrezzata per la navigazione estrema, traccerà le coordinate di un progetto prima di tutto cerebrale, attuato per estendere la memoria visiva di un’esperienza, oltre il perimetro stesso del pianeta terra. Con l’omonina serie fotografica (proveniente dalla collezione CAP Milano) l’artista presenta inoltre, per la prima volta riunita in una fiera italiana, la documentazione di un’azione unica, della durata di alcuni minuti, prodotta al largo delle Isole Svalbard nel Circolo Polare Artico e preceduta da alcuni interventi sul territorio urbano di New York.
ASPEN CONTEMPORARY ART COLLECTION NEW YORK
In the last several years the Contemporary Art Society has curated an exemplary collection of contemporary works. The collection is a daring one – substantial works from acclaimed career artists sit alongside newly discovered work from the emerging art stars of the future.
Painting and photography feature strongly, and a new dimension is added with the inclusion of a number of moving image and light-based works. Amongst the collection are works that reveal hidden aspects of the metropolis, works that expand ideas of landscape and ecology, and works that celebrate people and human relationships. Overall, the Aspen collection offers remarkable and sometimes unexpected perspectives that help us see the world creatively.

An Exhibition of Contemporary Camera-Based Works
Featured artists: Kuba Bakowski, Allison Berkoy, Caraballo-Farman, Andrea Galvani, Narcissister, Julian Opie, Bec Stupak, Andrea Wolf
This exhibition marks AD Projects’ inaugural departure from New York City, and will highlight the works of eight contemporary artists that have been delving into the subcategory of new media where performativity and the camera, both still and moving, intersect.
"The term caméra vivant is loosely derived from tableau vivant, which literally translates to “living picture.” The tableau vivant emerged in the eighteenth century as a parlor game in which a costumed individual or group posed in a static and carefully arranged manner, generally referencing a recognizable historical scene. Early interpretations of the parlor game included erotic vaudeville performances and often women-run amateur theater. Eventually, the tableau vivant evolved into a type of narrative photography accepted into the canon of fine art. At the peak of their popularity, tableaux vivants bridged the gap between amateur theater and fine-art photography, and later influenced artists such as Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, and Jack Smith."

Questa mostra nasce da una visione, o meglio da diverse visioni della realtà espresse dagli artisti invitati. Una realtà, un paesaggio, che non è più mera documentazione di un luogo ma riflessione critica su di esso. Un paesaggio di un nuovo luogo, o meglio di nessun luogo, cioè di tutti i luoghi possibili. Una mostra costruita come una mappa capace di disegnare appunto nessun luogo, l'unico luogo forse, che possiamo guardare davvero con occhi nuovi, non viziati dalle continue documentazioni che la società ci offre a mò di cartolina per convincerci a comprare un biglietto per lo stesso luogo, davanti cui farsi fotografare in un eterno copia e incolla di immagini, paesaggi, pose e sorrisi.
Lo spazio del reale è sostituito dallo spazio del possibile, momento nomade del nostro pensiero e del nostro sguardo che offre allo spettatore un viaggio attraverso questi frammenti che sembrano indicarci nel complesso una via di fuga cosciente, prospettica e poetica dalle nostre immagini, dai nostri preconcetti, dal nostro punto di vista e forse, da noi stessi.
