In Mostra. Corpo.gesto.postura
Artissima | 4-6 November 2016 | curated by di Simone Menegoi
For In mostra, an exhibition project within Artissima curated by Simone Menegoi and titled Corpo.gesto.postura, Fondazione Merz proposes a work by Marisa Merz.
Artissima organises a large-scale thematic exhibition at the Oval pavilion that celebrates the great public collections of Torino and its region. For the first time in 2016, the show combines both art works from major museums and foundations and loans from important private collections. The result is a unique exhibition titled In Mostra, in which Piemonte’s commitment to collecting at the highest international level is displayed. Curated this year by Simone Menegoi, the project, entitled ‘corpo.gesto.postura’ (‘body.gesture.posture.’), focuses on the human figure and the exploration of the body in art. The selection includes sculptures and videos, paintings and photographs, performances and drawings from the nineteenth century to the present. Some works evoke a dialogue between statues and living bodies, while others relate the artistic representation and evocation of the body.
