Curators: Sara Fumagalli and Stefano Raimondi

GAMeC is presenting the first solo exhibition at a European institution devoted to Rochelle Goldberg (1984, Vancouver, Canada; lives and works in New York).

A carpet that resembles neon dirt and measures more than 200 square-meters will be spread across the gallery floor, acting as a scenic monochrome platform for the presentation of the artist’s work: No Where, Now Herefrom which the exhibition takes its title and which mutates Goldberg’s piece presented earlier this year in the “Mirror Cells” group exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York—alongside a new series of object-based works and a space-encompassing wall-drawing.

Contrasting the hand-rendered and the fabricated, the primal and the technological, Rochelle Goldberg destabilizes these categories, directing attention to the unstable border where the virtual and the real can co-exist. Goldberg’s work enacts a threshold experience, undermining any finality, and paradoxically positing transformation as the ultimate form.

The show is accompanied by a monographic catalogue published by GAMeC Books, which documents Rochelle Goldberg’s most important works. It includes a short essay by Rochelle Goldberg, texts by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio (GAMeC Director, Bergamo), Sara Fumagalli (GAMeC curator, Bergamo), Ruba Katrib (Sculpture Centre curator, New York), Flora Katz (independent curator, Paris), Piper Marshall (critic and independent curator, New York), Jane Panetta (Whitney Museum associate curator, New York), Stefano Raimondi (GAMeC curator, Bergamo) and a conversation about the artist’s works between the art historian Leah Pires and the neuroscientist Sara Costantino.

The exhibition is part of the series that pays tribute to Arturo Toffetti.

 

GAMeC is also hosting two solo shows alongside this exhibition until January 15, 2017. Curated by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio and devoted to two great Italian contemporary artists, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Fabio Mauri, these exhibitions paint a complete picture of the artists’ research.

Michelangelo Pistoletto: Immagini in più, Oggetti in meno, un paradiso ancora is composed of about 50 works, including historical pieces by the artist and a number of his later works: the famous Quadri Specchianti and the group of works entitled "Oggetti in meno," placed in constant dialogue with each other, as well as a site-specific project devoted to the work Terzo Paradiso.

Fabio Mauri: Arte per legittima difesa features a selection of pieces that encompass 50 years of the artist’s work, illustrating some of the key themes he has focused on over the years: rights, identity, ideology, language, narration and time.

What is more, the museum is staging Artists' Film International, an exhibition of video works now in its eighth season. Curated by Sara Fumagalli and Stefano Raimondi, it involves important contemporary art institutions on the international scene and artists from all over the world. This year, GAMeC has selected the video Dark Content by the Italian artists Eva and Franco Mattes.
