Venue: Studio Tommaseo, via del Monte 2/1, Trieste (Italy)


Curated by Julia Trolp

What could be defined today as unique, incomparable, extraordinary or valuable? Which are the things, the moments and the situations that stand out from the ordinary and increasingly fast flow of our daily life and thus become something exceptional or special? The curator Julia Trolp asked this question to 34 artists who answered with photographs accompanied by short texts. From 4 September to 16 October 2010 Trieste Contemporanea and L’Officina present the answers of these artists in an international exhibition at Studio Tommaseo in Trieste. The original works will not be displayed, but only the prints of the photographs will be, therefore the only work on show and the true protagonist of the exhibition will be an 80 pages publication.
The conceptual resort to the publication expresses the main feature of a photograph, namely that it can be reproduced. At the same time it draws on Walter Benjamin’s thought who wrote in his famous essay of 1936 that “to ask for the ‘authentic’ print makes no sense”.
Therefore, shape and content, reproduction and uniqueness stand in clean-cut contrast and the exhibition is 34 time uniqueness without unique works.


On the Giornata del Contemporaneo AMACI on 9 October the curator will discuss the questions raised by the exhibition together with some artists and the public at 6:30 pm.

"I love above all the sight of vegetation resting upon old ruins; this embrace of nature, coming swiftly to bury the work of man the moment his hand is no longer there to defend it, fills me with deep and ample joy."
-Gustave Flaubert, 19th century

YOUNG ARTISTS IN A CONTEMPORARY COLLECTION

125 Maiden Lane, 9th and 14th Floors. NYC
Opening Reception Friday, April 30, 7-9PM


8th May 2010 - 22nd August 2010


Curated by: Giorgio Verzotti
Catalogue essay by Hans-Ulrich Obrist
MART Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto


About 80 works – paintings, photographs, sculptures, installations and video – from the AGI Verona Collection, which has always dedicated itself to seeking out new talent, will be exhibited in the Mart’s rooms.
The AGI Verona Collection was founded in 1989 at the behest of five collectors from Verona, who joined together with a shared desire to support contemporary art. Over 500 works have entered the collection so far, made using different artistic languages and techniques, offering varying poetics and provenance, with artists from outside Italy forming the majority. AGI has always focused on buying young and emerging talent; for the most part, the works entered the collection the same year they were made. The young artists and new hopes have represented a continuous challenge, matching a collecting sensitivity that has always sought to capture the new and topical, in order to register the changes and transformations under way in the history of art.


The “Languages and Experimentationss” 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.
Through the lens of the AGI Verona collection, 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 the artists present are 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.

IL CIELO IN UNA STANZA / THE SKY IN A ROOM: an eccentric view of the landscape
Opening Friday Luly 17th 2009 7pm
GC. AC - Galleria Comunale d’Arte Contemporanea di Monfalcone, Italy
Curated by Andrea Bruciati
Artists: Marco Campanini, Marco Citron, Emanuele Colombo, Ettore Favini, Michael Fliri, Linda Fregni Nagler, Christian Frosi, Andrea Galvani, Luigi Ghirri, Claudio Gobbi, Andreas Golinski, Stefano Graziani / Giulia Nomis, Teodoro Lupo, Domenico Mangano, Tancredi Mangano, Margherita Morgantin, Giovanni Ozzola, Andrea Pertoldeo, Daniele Pezzi, Alessandro Piangiamore, Claudia Pozzoli, Antonio Rovaldi, Sara Rossi, Richard Sympson, Nicola Uzunovski, Franco Vaccari.


Quando sei qui con me / questa stanza non ha più pareti / ma alberi, alberi infiniti quando sei qui vicino a me / questo soffitto viola / no, non esiste più.
Io vedo il cielo sopra noi / che restiamo qui / abbandonati / come se non ci fosse più / niente, più niente al mondo.
(Gino Paoli, Mogol, Il cielo in una stanza, 1960).


L’approccio post-romantico al paesaggio, colto e talvolta sottilmente ironico che ha caratterizzato molta della nostra produzione fotografica dagli anni Settanta fino ai primi Novanta, è andato progressivamente trasformandosi e dilatandosi in un sempre più evidente e aggressivo lavoro di documentazione e manifestazione delle mutazioni ambientali, industriali e post-industriali in atto nel nostro Paese. Come ovunque del resto, ricerche sovente proposte in forma di racconto o di raccolta di immagini quasi inaspettatamente obbligavano il pubblico a riflettere, a domandarsi la ragione dei contenuti, e non solo a contemplare gli scatti riprodotti.


Con una selezione fra i più giovani ma già autori della scena fotografica italiana, la rassegna IL CIELO IN UNA STANZA tenta la codificazione di un linguaggio differente, frutto di una ricerca che nasce da un gioco tra continuità e rottura e pertanto volta ad un confronto critico e dialettico con la tradizione. Non vi sono sinergie fra le opere presentate ma una comune capacità di intenti, un dialogo fra inquadrature apparentemente differenti ma concepite su un comune sentire, basate su una rinnovata fiducia nella sintesi della narrazione. A conferma della sua natura aperta, il dialogo si evolve e modifica rispondendo alle varie sollecitazioni: a dispetto dell’attuale crisi vi è la necessità di elaborare una risposta sì perturbativa ma fondativa, che immagini un diverso atteggiamento nei confronti del futuro prossimo.

LOCATION ONE

Andrea Galvani is the winner of Location One 2008 / 2009 and will represent Italy at the International Residency Program in New York.


There are only 12 international artists invited to the program and each one has his institutional nominator: the cultural ministry, cultural foundations and museums of the participating country. Since 2005 Artegiovane Milano is Italy’s home country sponsoring institution and with the contribution of Anima S.G.R.p.A. and the City of Milan, it permits one young Italian artist to participate for six months in the Studio Program in New York. Every year, after a first selection on a national level done by Italian critics and curators chosen by the association Artegiovane, the portfolios of the candidates are examined by an American commission composed by art museum and art review directors, American curators and by the staff of Location One, who elect one single artist-in-residence.At Location One the artist will have a working studio and will be followed by his personal curator.The award is aimed at the divulgation and the promotion of the work of the artists-in-residence through an intensive program of encounters and studio visits with curators and insiders of the contemporary art system of New York. At the end of the residency program, the artist will exhibit the work created in a show in one of Location One’s main galleries or in their project space.


Location One is located at:
26 Greene Street (between Canal and Grand), NY NY, 10013

DUST JACKET
Vol. 1 – Temporary Geometries


Special Armory Event
Curated by Marco Antonini
A project by Andrea Galvani, Isola e Norzi
Opening reception: Thursday, March 5th, 2009 – 6:00pm.
Italian Cultural Institute, 686 Park Avenue, New York City.
March 5th - March 30th, 2009 Info's: 212.879.4242 ext.378


dust jacket
n. A removable paper cover used to protect the binding of a book. Also called dust cover
.

Dust Jacket is an experimental editorial project, the cover of an open-ended and permeable idea. Curated by Marco Antonini, Temporary Geometries features objects that organize themselves around an invisible structure, taking position in a desperate attempt to overcome the emptiness that surrounds them.
Andrea Galvani and Isola e Norzi’s works are made of small tweaks, temporary actions that are bound to fail but still meaningful to claim their power over the erosion of space and time.
With this project, the Italian Institute of Culture, New York, is launching a series of invitational exhibitions aimed at promoting the work of some of the best Italian artists working in the New York Area.


PS: PARSING SPIRITUALITY
Curated by Micaela Giovannotti
January 10 - February 17, 2009
Opening Reception January 10, 2009 6-9pm
Affirmation Arts 523 West 37th Street New York, NY


Featuring artists: Janine Antoni, Sebastiaan Bremer, Melissa A. Calderon, Gordon Cheung, Graham Caldwell, Andrea Galvani, Dan Kopp, Ivan Navarro, Lisa Ross, Courtney Smith, Xaviera Simmons, and J. G. Zimmerman.


"Every work of art is the child of its age and, in many cases, the mother of our emotions" (Concerning the Spiritual in Art, W. Kandinsky)


PS: Parsing Spirituality examines the recent resurgence of spirituality in contemporary art. After being neglected for quite some time, spirituality has risen to the surface in contemporary art. Spirituality based on religious belief has been part of art history since the dawn of time. Art has both advertised and glorified religions, but contemporary art has generally distanced itself from the spiritual realm, focusing its lens on formal and conceptual tenets. Not surprisingly, as often happens in times of secular uncertainties and political and economic turmoil, there is currently a resurgence of interest in spirituality, wherein artists are exploring and re-defining themselves in their work with very introspective and personal means and approaches. However, from a different perspective, these new spiritual elements can be interpreted in part as a contemplative reaction. Layered with complexity, these explorations include universal issues that, while external, are nonetheless of primal importance to the self.


Affirmation Arts is a newly renovated arts space located in the Hudson Yards district of New York City.
Gallery hours are Monday- Friday 10am-6pm and Saturdays 11am-5pm.
For more information, please contact Marla Goldwasser at 212-925-0092 or marla@affirmationarts.com.


THE INFLUENCE OF FISH TAILS ON THE BREAKING WAVES
Curated by Irina Zucca Alessandrelli


Artists: Arlen Austin, Kuba Bakowski,Per Billgren, Nina Canell & Robin Watkins, Aoife Collins, Mark Dion, Andrea Galvani, Jamie Isenstein, Ana Prvacki


Opening Friday 12 December 2008, from 6 to 9 pm
Point B Special Projects
71 North 7th St, Brooklyn, USA


The Influence of Fish Tales on the Breaking Waves derives its name from Jules Verne's novel entitled "The Green Ray" (1882), in which the author describes the disenchantment of the world brought about by the advance of science. In order to stress the importance of the creative thought, Verne chooses the artist, as the captor
of the heroine's heart, rather than the cold and methodical geologist, who is also in love with her. In the end, the artist recommends unsolved research themes, such as "the influence of fish tails on the breaking waves" as a sarcastic answer to the explanation of the green ray as mere optical phenomenon. The author's vision of art emphasizes the emotive component in deciphering life and natural events against scientific arguments.(..)
This group show seeks to stimulate the viewer towards a perception of the resonant aspects of art and its components of wonder. Through a game of associations, the exhibition attempts to underline the artwork’s capacity to reach out, quoting Stephen Greenblatt's words, "beyond formal boundaries to a larger world, to evoke in the viewer the complex, dynamic cultural forces from which it has emerged". A faith in wonder as "an arresting sense of uniqueness", as well as in the object's ability to communicate
and arouse a sense of surprise in the viewer, is the driving engine
of this exhibition.
*This is a travelling project proudly sponsored by Columbia University, the next venue will be the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art in Vaasa, Finland.

Andrea Galvani’s Triade di Bichat III, the third and last part of his trilogy The Intelligence of Evil, 2006-2008, is a sitespecific work developed almost as a challenge to the splendid architecture of the Castelvecchio museum in Verona. The artist has intervened in the central part of the tall Torre del Mastio, the castle keep dating from 1375 that, on one side acts as the entrance to the Scaligero bridge over the river Adige and, on the other, to the upper Weapons room or Sala delle Armi. It presents just one element, a cross-like key, the projected image of which, with quiet magnificence, is slowly consumed like a lament until it disappears at the point of the upper level of the medieval coffer.

"We will arrive to a point where the idea of reality will not exist anymore. Cinema will become a part of a mental life and communications will evolve in a metaphisical dimesion."
The title and the idea of the exhibition - curated by Camilla Boemio - draws on the the theoretic foundations of the cult work "Expanded Cinema", written in 1970 by Gene Youngblood - and in which the connections between cinematic experimentation and video research are analysed.
It is a pioneering text on the necessary exchanges among the several arts of our century; it talks about a creativity which is able to use the sinergy among science, art and technology, free from narrow models.The videoartists presented, some of the most intereresting ones at the moment, refer to Camilla Boemio's idea: their works provide a multifaceted cross-section of videoart expressive languages, complementary and antithetical at the same time.

PERCHÉ NO?
An art discussions magazine
Presentation on Wednesday march 26th 2008 at 17.00

Perché NO? Because art is only dead when the world ends.


After a few years rest Perchè/? (art discussions magazine) is back, not to talk about itself, but, as usual, to make others speak. What's new: from now it's not printed anymore, but on-line. In this new version also the name has changed, going from the paper version Perchè/?, to the on-line one Perchè no? But apart from a slight change in the name, and the passage, that is still a huge step, from the physical form to the unphysical, Perchè no? maintains the structure of a magazine built only upon discussions, a series of round tables, a place where the Think Thank on art and on its problems takes place. Here's the connection between the people and the formula of our publication, a lab of thoughts that through art become a part of our life and of our world. However also something else has changed in the on-line version, adding to the old archive and to the discussions, that we'll now find in each release, links and references that reconnect each encounter with other wider and unpredictable systems.

What is “white space”?
It is a figment of the imagination and not part of nature. Although it is not a tribute to the winter Engadine, it is inspired by its snowy landscape. Space becomes white because it loses its characteristic connotations, namely those which are immediately identified by the senses, and it becomes perceptible only through our thoughts. White as the colour that contains all colours, as the absolute dimension where all practicable dimensions converge.
In the work of photographers, particularly those gathered and presented in this exhibition, white space is a metaphorical place where all images converge, disappear and simultaneously reappear as inextinguishable entities. Photography is a threshold between the two possibilities.

ANDREA GALVANI N⁻¹
SOLO SHOW
curated by Anna Daneri
Opening Saturday 17th November 2007 at 6 pm
20th November 2007 – 16th February 2008
Special Bac! project : Saturday 1th December at 11 am
Galleria Artericambi, via A.Cesari 10 Verona, Italy

 

In the project N⁻¹, the second part of the trilogy “the intelligence of evil”, Andrea Galvani seems to operate through subtraction, orchestrating the slow disappearance of the subject.

Creatures which become penultimate, absorbed by mist or by darkness, like the damned in Beckett, they stand in silhouette, waiting for the end. But it is a process which is open, a mathematical function whose equilateral curve plunges downwards without reaching zero.
It is an intensity directed at exhaustion which divides and changes each time.
In the video installation «La triade di Bichat II», developed with the technical colaboration of Paolo Berto Durante, a series of objects is projected life-size onto the wall. At different times and in different ways, these objects are subject to a sudden process of disagregation, being sublimated and losing themselves in the space. In the photographic images, the landscape draws on gradients through which it dissolves.
A group of rabbits let loose in the middle of a 3,400m high glacier collaborate in the staging of a change. Like a cloud which breaks apart, a feed-back of light in the dilated pupils of the animals at night, the limit is not found in terms of infinity, but is found anywhere, bouncing from one to the other so much that it forms them.  


BAC! 07
BARCELONA INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART FESTIVAL EIGHT EDITION


Opening 26th November 2007 until 20th December 2007
 “…nowadays, cities no longer correspond to what they were thought to be in the last centuries. In the 21st century urban centers have become overwhelming and undefined beings, containers of religions, races and cultures. It is all about a riddle that has turned out to be a recurrent main subject and material framework in the contemporary artistic activity. Factors, such as socio-cultural fusions, art, music, fashion, new technologies, gastronomy, or even inherent situations, such as the loneliness or the alienation of an impersonalized society, play a decisive role both to the expansion and the explosion of big cities.
Drawing upon the ancient idea of Babylon as a centre of human progress, BAC! Festival 2007 establishes parallelisms among the huge diversity of cultures that emerged in ancient times and what is known today as the contemporary multiculturalism, a fruit of global migration movements. In BAC! 07 artists by all fields will offer their critical vision on this reality, redefining the concept of contemporary culture and allowing for the construction of a more active and compromised cultural consciousness.”

EFFETTO STALKER

Galleria dell’Arco, via Siracusa 9, Palermo, Italy
Margherita Morgantin, Sara Rossi, Andrea Galvani, Eli Sterz


"May their wishes come true,
may they believe in them and laugh of their passions;
for what we call passion is not spiritual energy
but just the clash between the soul and the world outside"
(from Stalker, by Andrej Tarkovski, 1979)


Palermo's Galleria dell'Arco presents the first of a series of exhibits dedicated to the theme of landscape in art: four of the protagonists of the national and international artistic arena - Margherita Morgantin, Sara Rossi, Eli Stetrz , Andrea Galvani - exhibit their video and photographic works (forms of languages closely connected to the imagery of cinema) and give voice to their sentimental and intellectual interpretation of landscape.
The works in which the exposition is articulated, are meant to establish an intimate, strongly evocative relation with landscape, with the exclusion of documentary and realistic styles. The natural as well as the urban landscape, transfigured with dreamlike, poetical, literary, and scientific reference here become mindscape or dreamscape. As a result, it assumes an estranging, almost surrealistic spirit, traceable to the artist's observing eye as well as to the places observed - places pulsating with subterranean energies.
The Stalker Effect of the title is a quote from Stalker, the acclaimed science fiction film of Andrej Tarkovski, in which the two main characters, a writer and a scientist, take a trip to an obscure place, named the Zone, an alien territory, mysteriously shaped by weird cosmic entities, where the realization of the most intimate desire becomes possible: a 'stalker' - despite its name - is their expert guide in this journey.


IN-SITO: PAESAGGIO RESIDUO
cureted by Alberto Zanchetta
Otto Gallery Arte Contemporanea, Via D’Azeglio 55, Bologna, Italy
Opening saturday 10th march 2007, at 18.30 pm. On show until sunday 29 of april 2007.


Artists: Bertozzi&Casoni, Mauro Ceolin, Federico Del Vecchio, Andrea Galvani, Stefano Mandracchia, Carla Mattii, Laura Pugno


Seven artists' works will be exposed around the traditional theme of the "landscape", in order to reflect on the territorial alterations and on how much of natural is still surviving in the ambient, not only in the border of the human intervention.
During the last years our planet has been hurt with wild deforestations, absurd and extreme urbanistic invasion, serious perturbations that have produced ecological unbalances and that have threatened animal species. When one speaks about the landscape one usually thinks about the nature, but the nature that we know has lost its purity, because the horizon we know is by now, the urban horizon. In 20th Century the vegetal world has been contaminated by residues that during the years have been integrated in this scenery, extreme antropocentric selfishness that moves against the nature, frazzling and destabilizing the earth.

UNTITLED
Curated by Anna Longo and Francesco Pandian
Opening Saturday 30th June 2007 at 9 pm
4th July – 30th September 2007


On the occasion of 52nd International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, Artericambi Gallery presents Untitled, a selection of works by:
Steven Pippin, Andrea Galvani, Carles Congost, Giovanni Morbin, Didier Rittener, Fabio Sandri


“Untitled” is a group exhibition developing and existing on formal, aesthetic and conceptual rebounds between the exhibited works. It’s a music with no score, freely playing like different voices harmonizing in a choir. If each artist creates a world, the meaning of an exhibition lies in the fact that makes these worlds meet without fencing them into a granted intent.
The chosen artists have been working with Artericambi for a long time. Their research follows independent and original developments, nevertheless we can’t deny that the identity of an art gallery develops, each time, through the dynamics emerging from inner energies and synergies leading the expansion of this small universe to a recognizable direction. Crossing and suspending on itself, the gallery shows its own image in a combination of plural tensions like an expression appearing on a face which suddenly discloses the persistence of a unique personality.


ARCHITETURES AND LANDSCAPES
The Flat / Villa Noris, Villa Fontana, Verona, Italy. Opening Saturday 20th of May 2006 at 06.30pm, in permanenza sino al 24 settembre.
Artists: Gianluca di Pasquale, Guido Bagini, Paola De Pietri, Stefan Ettlingers, Andrea Galvani, Matthias Meyer, Marco Neri, Sara Rossi, Paolo Vaccari.
The theme of the show affects contemporary Architectures and Landscapes in the works of young artists using photography and painting.A special attention is bended to the idea of absence and presence of the human within visual's form of representation (from figuration to abstraction).The purpose is to identify a supposed point of view in the observer, trough the elements of the artist's psyche.
The evidences of contemporary existence, with its rituals, the renovation and manipulation of reality conducted by the artist to establish a different order of rules, through the process of observation.
Works selected will offer also a vision or a manifestation of perceptions, in which "things" appear far away from what they really are or simply appear in their disenchanted dimension.

DECOSTRUZIONE DI UNA MONTAGNA e LA MORTE DI UN’IMMAGINE, curated by Marinella Paderni, Solo Show, Galleria Artopia, Milano, Italy.
Opening 1 December 2005, 06:00pm. On show until 24th February 2006.
“Decostruzione di una montagna e la morte di un'immagine” is a project of redefinition of the physic confines of representation in which obscure mechanisms of disorder are embedded.
Transfiguring the typical analysis system of the scientific graphic, and empathizing the didalistic and divulgative character, the artist elaborates a fake net of semantic interconnection.
The classic iconography of the landscape, like and implant of the eighteenth portrait, physically blends with outside elements – elementary geometric units that proliferate that mimic at the center of the photogram.


In “Morte di un'immagine #1” a white intimate is invaded by the explosive of perspective of hundreds of helium inflated black balloons, anchored on the rocks. In a simple and direct way the artist manages to force the perception of the landscape that vanishes gradually eclipsed by the roundness of the balloons, trespassed by the black volume that censures and changes the image.
In this occasion Galvani uses objects from the standardized culture of fun – inflated balloons, smoke-producing, colored cards, technique sports materials – that erupt from the landscape scene as elements of deconstruction of the image in a form of activation of new meanings.
This re-elaboration by Andrea Galvani, according to precise projective order, is the universal idea of organism.

LA DEVIAZIONE
Andrea Galvani solo show, text by Luigi Fassi and Alfredo Sigolo.
Galleria Artericambi, Verona , Italy
Opening 5 june 2004, 21:00 p.m.


A due anni esatti dalla sua ultima personale alla Galleria Arte e Ricambi, Andrea Galvani presenta un nuovo e complesso progetto.
E’ la mappatura di un universo parallelo, del tutto simbolico e astratto;in esso convergono le idee di connessione, territorialità, equilibrio, informazione, secondo rigorose geometrie e visioni metonimiche.
In una pratica radicale di dubbio e decostruzione, l’artista rintraccia finzioni e violenze percettive che si insinuano mediaticamente nel nostro rapporto con il reale. Utilizzando un complesso vocabolario di sinonimi visivi Galvani individua le coordinate di un sistema matematico fissando precisi intenti concettuali.
La deviazione allude alla necessità effettiva di esercitare una scelta all’interno di un percorso prestabilito.
