PAST

   L'IMMAGINE E IL SUO DOPPIO   Curated by Domenico De Chirico Eduardo Secci Contemporary, Firenze 19 May - 30 June 2018  Doubles are the perennial interest of philosophers, especially those focused on aesthetics. The search for something concealed behind or within an image is an ancient study, one that has more recently been explored in the dialectics of Jean-Pierre Vernant and Antonin Artaud. For Vernant, the double is something absent or unreachable to present, an unveiling of the image as a constant gift. For Artaud, the double allows us to touch the essence of things, a way to break the separation between  representation and reality. Perhaps the double is best understood by merging these two approaches, a manifestation of the image which thus becomes elevated, repeated.  This circle seems to cross all works in the exhibition, each one carrying an internal conflict between pairs of different nature, and which passionately seek to show the complex stratifications from which they were generated. Featured artists: Sara Barker,  Andrea Galvani , Sanam Khatibi, David Noonan, and Margo Wolowiec

  ANDREA GALVANI SELECTED WORKS 2006 | 2016  Curated by Margherita de Pilati Mart Museum | Galleria Civica di Trento 14 October 2016 - 22 January 2017  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 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.

Beyond the vast sorrows and all the vexations
That weigh upon our lives and obscure our vision,
Happy is he who can with his vigorous wing
Soar up towards those fields luminous and serene,

He whose thoughts, like skylarks,
Toward the morning sky take flight
– Who hovers over life and understands with ease
The language of flowers and silent things!
– Charles Baudelaire, "Elevation"

  EPÍLOGO  Marso Galería, México City 18 September - 31 October 2015   Epílogo  introduces viewers to the psychological landscape that serves as the foundation for  The End Trilogy , 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. During the opening reception, the artist invited Eloy Ayón-Beato, theoretical physicist and expert in black holes, for a collaborative intervention in the space. A new dimension is thus exposed as an architectonic blueprint, a schematic portrait of the project's evolution.

  L  ANDSCAPE AS A BRAIN: MIMESI DE UN ANTI-MONUMENTO  Galería Curro,  Guadalajara 18 July - 25 September 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.

  THE END: AN ART IN GENERAL NEW COMMISSION  Art in General, New York 16 May - 27 June 2015  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.

  ON WHAT THERE MIGHT NOT BE  Curated by Sofia Mariscal and Polina Stroganova Marso Galería, México City 16 January - 23 March 2013   On What There Might Not Be  features the work of 11 international artists who reflect on the concept of “nothingness,” a complex term which unfolds a variety of notions: zero in mathematics, the vacuum in physics, the void in philosophy, the “uncreated” in theology, infinity in astronomy, silence in music, the absurd in logic, the invisible and intangible in art. The works presented in this exhibition explore ways in which such seemingly trivial concepts are fundamental to our understanding of how life is shaped, and how nothingness is intimately linked to our history and everyday experience.  Artists: Francis Alÿs, Virginia Colwell, Arturo Hernández Alcázar, Zilvinas Kempinas, Daniela Libertad, Adrien Missika, Jakob Mattner, Tony Orrico, Luis Felipe Ortega, Andy Warhol. Special Project:  Andrea Galvani , Artist in Residency, January - March 2014

 DECEPTOR Curated by Kessler & Kessler  FIFI Projects , México City 5 February - 28 March 2018  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. Artists: Adam Helms,  Andrea Galvani , Jon Naiman, Mark Dion, Nick Payne, Tony Oursler, Bradford Kessler, Carolee Schneemann, Daniel Allegrucci, Dana Sherwood, Dieter Buchhart, Gabriele Stellbaum.

  IL MONDO DEGLI OGGETI  UniCredit Contemporary Art Collection UniCredit Art Gallery, Verona June 2013   Il Mondo degli Oggetti  ["The World of Objects"] 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.

  LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA: NELL'ACQUA CAPISCO  Curated by Claudio Libero Pisano Ateno Veneto / Procuratie Vecchie 29 May - 29 September 2013  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. Artists: Gregorio Botta, Simone Cametti, Paolo Canevari, Davide D’Elia, Alberto Di Fabio, Bruna Esposito,  Andrea Galvani , Laurel Holloman, Regina José Galindo, Donatella Landi, Marina Paris, Simone Pellegrini, Gioacchino Pontrelli, Annie Ratti, Barbara Salvucci, Donatella Spaziani, Francesco Vaccari

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.

  IL PRIMO LUSTRO  Curated by Luca Panaro and Marcello Sparaventi Centrale Fotografia, Fano 8-9 June 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.

  TERRARIUM: ANDREA GALVANI AND TIM HYDE  Marso Galería, México City 9 April - 26 May 2013   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 Skull Sessions.  The Skull Sessions  are conversations rendered as form. Each Session is a dialogue recorded and reshaped into experimental publications, objects, images, and installations.

  NEXT STOP: ITALY  Curated by Renato Miracco Phillips Collection, Washington DC 20 March - 28 April 2013  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. Artists: Gabriele Basilico, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Mario Cresci,  Andrea Galvani , Luigi Ghirri, Mimmo Jodice, Franco Vaccari, Nino Migliori, Renato D'Agostin, Francesco Nonino, Paolo Ventura

 THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE INVISIBLE Tatiana Kourochkina Contemporary Art Project, Barcelona June 2012   The Architecture of the Invisible  brings together a set of works by  Andrea Galvani  and William Lamson in Spain for the first time. 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 in the actual gallery space and in the spectator’s awareness. Each work is a sort of window that opens contemplation of the unrepresentable, a kind of lattice from which to behold the architecture of the invisible, as suggested by the title of the show. The natural environments that appear in the works of 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.

  "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) Calder Foundation, New York 5 May 2012, 2 PM - 2 AM  In his interview with Katherine Kuh from 1962, Alexander 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.

  UNCOMMON GROUND  Curated by Chris Littlewood Flowers Gallery, London 12 July - 1 September 2012   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, the environment is considered 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 practitioners 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 1960s. 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.

 ANDREA GALVANI: A FEW INVISIBLE SCULPTURES Meulensteen Gallery, New York 23 February - 21 April 2012  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 #1 . 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  Curated by Niels Van Tomme Pavilion Center for Contemporary Art & Culture, Bucharest 15 December 2011 - 19 February 2012  "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. Artists: Lotte Van den Audenaeren (BE), Anne-James Chaton (FR),  Andrea Galvani (IT),  Jo Mitchell (UK), Matthias Wermke & Mischa Leinkauf (DE)

  FOUR MINUTES, THIRTY-THREE SECONDS  Curated by Omar Lopez-Chahoud LegalArt, Miami Opening 2 December 2011   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 (1931–1978). The Fluxus art movement in the 1960s and '70s was characterized by a strong 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 and Joseph Backstein The ARTPLAY Design Center and the TSUM Art Foundation, Moscow 23 September - 30 October 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.

  T  HE GENTLEMEN OF VERONA | EXPERIMENTS ON THE CONTEMPORARY IN ITALY  Curated by Andrea Bruciati Galleria d'Arte Moderna, Palazzo Forti, Verona 24 September 2011 - 8 January 2012  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 centerpiece of the exhibition is the wealth of the artistic offerings which has characterized 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 characterized this part of Italy for years. As 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 realization 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. Featured 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

 SEMBIANZE | LA FOTOGRAFIA TRA REALTÀ E APPARENZA Curated by Roberto Maggiori and Italo Zannier San Francesco Museum, San Marino 16 July - 2 October 2011  La realtà e la sua metamorfosi bidimensionale sono l’oggetto di indagine di questa rassegna fotografica che, organizzata dalla Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea della Repubblica di San Marino, si svolgerà presso il Museo San Francesco dal 16 luglio all'8 ottobre. Un appuntamento importante per mostrare uno dei temi cardine attorno al quale orbita tutta la fotografia, ma anche un’occasione preziosa per la presenza di uno studioso della materia come Italo Zannier che, insieme a Roberto Maggiori, cura questo evento. Entrando nello specifico, il tema della collettiva è quello del medium fotografico inteso come strumento in bilico tra verità e finzione, un meccanismo ambiguo in cui riproduzione e rappresentazione si intrecciano a formare un legame difficilmente districabile. La rassegna coinvolge artisti che in maniera esemplare hanno affrontato questo tema – occasionalmente o più assiduamente – realizzando lavori che si sono rivelati emblematici. Più di cinquanta tra autori storicizzati, contemporanei e anonimi che hanno riflettuto e riflettono sulla traduzione bidimensionale della realtà messa in atto dalla fotografia, in un periodo che va dalla sua nascita fino ai giorni nostri.  Featured artists: Vasco Ascolini, Olivo Barbieri, Giorgio Barrera, Gianantonio Battistella, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Roberto Bossaglia, Piergiorgio Branzi, Cesare Colombo, Cuoghi Corsello, Mario Cresci, Mario De Biasi, César Domela, Franco Fontana, Maurizio Galimberti,  Andrea Galvani , Marcello Galvani, Cesare Gerolimetto, Luigi Ghirri, Paolo Gioli, Guido Guidi, Mimmo Jodice, Giorgio Lotti, Federico Maddalozzo, Pietro Melecchi, Nino Migliori, Paolo Monti, Ugo Mulas, Paul Nadar, Carlo Naya, Luca Maria Patella, Antonio Pauletta, Roberto Salbitani, Paolo Salvarani, Fabio Sandri, Mario Sillani Djerrahian, Nicola Smerilli, Alessandra Spranzi, Pio Tarantini, George Tatge, Davide Tranchina, Paolo Ventura, Giovanni Zaffagnini, Italo Zannier, Giovanni Ziliani and some anonymous authors from the Zannier collection.

 ANDREA GALVANI:  LECTIO MAGISTRALIS  Curated by Giorgio Verzotti  MIA Milan Image Art Fair 2011    “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.

 ANDREA GALVANI | ASPEN CONTEMPORARY ART COLLECTION, NEW YORK  With the opening of Aspen’s offices in New York in 2011, the  Contemporary Art Society  curated an exemplary collection of contemporary work, investigating the huge array of artists found in the city. An emphasis on artworks that offer a distinctive and out of the ordinary view of our world builds a dynamic picture of the creative energy that characterises this great city. 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.
