GAMeC joins “La Giornata del Contemporaneo”, the great event promoted by AMACI – Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums dedicated to the art of our time and to its public, now in its fifteenth edition.
Saturday, October 12th, the exhibitio Libera. Between Warhol, Vedova and Christo will be open for free from 10:00 to 18:00 (last entry at 17:00).
Conceived as a tribute to creative freedom and the emancipation from the constraints of tradition, the exhibition project arises from the encounter between the collections of GAMeC and a nucleus of prestigious works confiscated in Lombardy and managed by the National Agency for the administration of seized assets , and presents to the public a rich selection of works by some of the most famous international artists of the second half of the twentieth century – including Jean Arp, Christo, Sol LeWitt, Giuseppe Penone, Ettore Spalletti, Emilio Vedova, Andy Warhol.
In addition, the Gallery’s Projection Room will host a video work by Eva Marisaldi – artist who signed the guide image for this edition – as part of a personal exhibition spread throughout the national territory promoted on the occasion of the Day.
The work presented at GAMeC, Musica per camaleonti (2003), is inspired by the eponymous story by Truman Capote, which leads the artist to take a trip to Madagascar, where there is the highest concentration of chameleons in the world.
Driven by curiosity to experiment with the proverbial chromatic transformation of these animals, the artist actually finds himself documenting their irresistible attraction to the music narrated by Capote, recalled by the electronic sounds of Enrico Serotti.
A selection of the artist’s videos will also be presented for the occasion.
The works will remain on view until Wednesday 23 October.
