Andrea Galvani
Selected works 2006 | 2016

Galleria Civica Trento
14 October 2016 / 22 January 2017
After numerous exhibitions at galleries and institutions around the world - including the Whitney Museum, Art in General, and the Calder Foundation in New York, as well as the Moscow, and Central American Biennials – the Mart Museum dedicates a major retrospective to Andrea Galvani (1973), one of the most important international Italian artists of his generation. Curated by Margherita de Pilati, the exhibition presents artwork produced over the last decade, in addition to new projects uniquely designed for this occasion. Galleria Civica, the Museum's third art space, is thus activated and engaged through the artist's site-specific intervention.

Through a compact, interdisciplinary itinerary including photography, sculpture, drawing, performance, video and audio installations, Andrea Galvani: Selected Works 2006 | 2016 documents collective action, visionary experiments, and physical phenomena in which the monumental is paradoxically ephemeral. Relationships between experience, physical effort, risk, and limitations of media and place in the orchestration of site-specific actions are crucial to the development of complex projects, which often result from collaborations with institutions, universities, and research laboratories.

In the space of Galleria Civica, Galvani reconfigures and re-contextualizes a selection of works from major collections and presents a new series of interventions produced in collaboration with the museum. The galleries are transformed into a laboratory for exploration and analysis with a number of the artist’s most acclaimed international investigations: The End Trilogy (2013-2016), A Few Invisible Sculptures (2012-2016), Higgs Ocean (2008-2011), and Deconstruction of a Mountain (2004-2016) engage in dialogue for the first time.
