LANGUAGES AND EXPERIMENTATIONS, EXHIBITION BY YOUNG TALENTS AT THE MART ROVERETO
Mart Rovereto will present works by international young talents from the AGI Verona Collection from 8th May to 22nd August 2010.
The exhibition called "Languages and Experimentations. Young artists in a contemporary collection" will show about 80 works - paintings, photographs, sculptures, installations and videos - from the AGI Verona Collection which has always dedicated itself to seeking out new talents.
The "Languages and Experimentations" exhibition, curated by Giorgio Verzotti and with a catalogue essay by Hans-Ulrich Obrist, is part of a cycle of exhibitions the Mart is dedicating to the promotion of private collections of particular worth; new or long-standing, they share an important role in the history of Italian collecting. About 20 works will remain on long-term loan to the museum and will form part of the Permanent Collection.
The artists selected for the long-term loan are Mario Airó, Stefano Arienti, Pierre Bismuth, Tom Burr, Maurizio Cattelan, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Roni Horn, Jim Lambie, Jorge Macchi, Eva Marisaldi, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Giovanni Morbin, Gabriel Orozco, Rob Pruitt, Julius Rolf, Andreas Slominski, Grazia Toderi, Luca Vitone, Sislej Xhafa and Chen Zhen.
The exhibition enables the visitor to focus on the current complex international artistic scene in Europe, America and Asia as regards young emerging talent. Many of these are now gaining an international reputation but were still 'emerging' when acquired by the AGI Verona. Among these artists we can find Mircea Cantor, Jeremy Deller, Cyprien Gaillard, Carlos Garaicoa, Django Hernandez, Gabriel Kuri, Jonathan Monk, Anri Sala, Simon Starling, Tomas Saraceno, Tino Sehgal; and from Italy Francesco Vezzoli, Nico Vascellari, Luca Trevisani, Piero Golia, Anna Galtarossa, Lara Favaretto, Gianni Caravaggio, Luca Pozzi, Emanuele Becheri, Alberto Tadiello and Andrea Galvani.
The exhibition itself will be held in the rooms of the first floor and other spaces, and will present videos and large installations. Meanwhile, the works on long-term loan will be on show on the second floor, where they may be compared with the Museum's collections.
