Openings of the exhibitions
Eldorado: Tris Vonna-Michell — Studio A: Monumental Detours / Insignificant Fixtures (2008 – ongoing)
28.05.09 / 26.07.09

The show is part of GAMeC’s program Eldorado that is dedicated to the most interesting emerging artists on the international scene.

The title of the exhibition indicates that it consists of two installations that converge in a single, complex construction made of voices, stories and images hailing from very different places and times. The starting point is Studio A, an installation previously presented at the Berlin Biennial in 2008 and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit in 2009. Here it is proposed in a new version created for GAMeC’s spaces and, on this occasion, it is interwoven with the original work Monumental Detours/ Insignificant Fixtures.

The show is part of a series created in honour of Arturo Toffetti.

With the support from the British Council.

Meris Angioletti — Ocular Gymnastics
28.05.09 / 26.07.09

GAMeC presents Ocular Gymnastics, the first solo show of the artist Meris Angioletti in an Italian museum. The entire exhibition — composed of three works all created expressly for GAMeC – is an exploration of the mechanisms of memory, from purely mnemonic information to imaginative aspects related to literary fiction and performance.

With thanks to: Galleria Tiziana Di Caro, Salerno.
