Rosa Barba on show at MART and Fondazione Galleria Civica of Trento

The MART of Rovereto and the Fondazione Galleria Civica of Trento present "Rosa Barba. Stage Archive", the first personal exhibition in an Italian public institution of Rosa Barba, the well known young Italian artist.


The work of Rosa Barba, whose artwork "The indifferent back of a view rather than its face" was recently acquired by UniCredit and given as free loan to the MART, investigates the cinema's inner essence and function, and explores unusual places and situations.

At the Mart and Galleria Civica exhibition, the artist works on the archive role and on how it changes the identity of the contemporary art museum. On this occasion, she starts her work by revisiting the futurist documents conserved in the MART archive.


In both venues, the works communicate with each other and, taken together, they create a single film and sound installation - a kind of a multimedia "Futuristic path" that includes texts, films, sculptures and sounds.


Based on this exhibition, the first extensive monographic catalogue dedicated to the artist since 2003 will be published.


The exhibition runs from 28 May to 28 August 2011.


UniCredit and Mart are partners. Together we support cultural activities designed to explore the world of contemporary art and promote young talent.
