A Room of One’s Own, a group show curated by Marcella Beccaria and inspired by the title of the homonymous essay by Virginia Woolf, explores the theme of solitude, analyzing its importance in the creative realm. Focusing on this theme, the exhibition brings together about twenty artists of international stature and includes forty works and large installations, dated from the Sixties to the present. Some pieces have been created specifically for this occasion; others are being shown for the first time, and most of them belong to the Castello’s collection, thanks to Fondazione CRT’s Project for Modern and Contemporary Art.

“The exhibition — Marcella Beccaria writes — explores the positive value of solitude, both as a condition tied to the secret moment of artistic inspiration, and as an unrepeatable moment of private encounter between the work and the observer. Immersing viewers in spaces capable of stimulating various senses, the works in the show refer to the conditions sought by each artist to nurture his or her creativity, and to an intention to seek direct contact with each visitor.”

Artists: Franz Ackermann, Stefano Arienti, Massimo Bartolini, Alan Charlton, Jan Dibbets, Olafur Eliasson, Marisa Merz, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Paola Pivi, Pipilotti Rist, Ettore Spalletti, Marijke van Warmerdam, Francesco Vezzoli,
Lawrence Weiner.

The exhibition has been made possible with the support of Fondazione CRT
