This first exhibition inaugurating MAXXI L’Aquila is dedicated to Ettore Spalletti, and his is one of the eight works that have been commissioned from as many artists for this occasion. Spalletti chose the chapel and created one of his most moving and successful works which will remain in the museum permanently. In the small chapel on the first floor, the artist has inserted a column in the centre of the space in conjunction with the lantern of the dome above. A column of light projecting upwards solidifies into a perfect cylinder: thought, space, light.
The entire exhibition unfolds on these premises, placing the site-specific works in dialogue with works from the MAXXI collection of art, architecture and photography.

We are happy to announce the release of the podcast Tamed Love on Lumpen Station, a conversation between Sara Ravelli and curator Giada Olivotto about our show.

The recording includes audio excerpts from: Pink Floyd - Mademoiselle Nobs - Live Pompeii / Watership Down, 1978 / Chimp Attack 911 Call / PIMP MY HORSE / Lil Nas X - Old Town Road / Queen - Delilah
Sara Ravelli (1993, Crema) is an artist. Her practice focuses on the careful analysis of the potential of contemporary images, which are then interpreted and translated into mainly sculptural and installation forms. Triggering tensions between social contexts and emotionality, the artist investigates the notion of domestication, in particular, the relations of exchange between human, non-human and artefact in which affection and control coexist.
Giada Olivotto (1990, Locarno) is an independent curator, co-director of the Sonnenstube collective, member of the Plattform jury, co-founder of Residenza La Fornace and the Canale Milva sound project.

A ceramic sculpture and two works on paper by Salvatore Arancio have been acquired by the Contemporary Art Society for the Harris Museum in Preston, joining a display of 18th and 19th century landscapes, sculpture, ceramics, historic books, and an important but underused collection of prints from the 16th century to the present day.

The three works are a significant addition to Harris’ collection and will play an important role in their contemporary art programme – Harris Inspired – which will display works in and around the building.

Salvatore Arancio’s work explores beauty and the sublime in nature. He is fascinated by the merging of myth and science, exploring the state of suspension between the real and the fictional through an emphasis on construction and staging. Playing with images, shapes and symbols using found geological illustrations as a starting point, he suggests a sense of human inefficacy against nature, creating juxtapositions that are both beautifully evocative and deeply disquieting.

Primary domain is an exhibition dedicated to Milan and its youngest generation of artists. The show features the work of eight artists born between ’92 and ’96 who grew up or trained in the city. The plurality of research approaches and techniques outlines a multifaceted scenario: configuring well-defined space-time coordinates, Primary domain thus serves as an observatory from which to explore and question the new focal points and activities of a context, represented here by Federico Cantale, Stefania Carlotti, Guendalina Cerruti, Jimmy Milani, Giacomo Montanelli, Sara Ravelli, Giulio Scalisi, and Agnese Smaldone.

Base / Progetti per l’arte presenta la mostra che l’artista Patrick Tuttofuoco ha ideato specificatamente per il luogo, fondato nel 1998, e in dialogo con il suo collettivo di artisti.
Il titolo It’s always been about time che Patrick Tuttofuoco ha pensato per la sua mostra nello spazio non profit di Firenze evoca immediatamente la centralità che ha per lui la riflessione sulla natura del tempo. Riflessione che prende le mosse dalle teorie scientifiche più recenti per arrivare ad abbracciare la dimensione umana in un modo inedito e ontologico. Tale progetto arriva dopo una gestazione di molti anni che lo ha portato più volte a ideare differenti possibilità di opere e interventi fino a trovare la sua forma ideale a partire da un dialogo recente con l’artista Remo Salvadori.
