New collaboration between the Fondazione Merz Torino and the Fondazione Querini Stampalia Venezia.
The Fondazione Merz presents the exhibition In viaggio sotto lo stesso cielo – Traveling under the same sky, from a project specifically created for the Fondazione by artist Luisa Rabbia and curated by Beatrice Merz.
From 9 April to 7 June 2009 the Fondazione Merz presents a one-man show of the German artist Wolfgang Laib curated by Beatrice Merz and Maria Centonze.
A sense of the balance and harmony that governs the world and the work of man, essential guardian of the universe, lies at the base of the artist’s thinking.
This large one-man show will be held in two moments: it will open with an installation of hundreds of small rice mountains, a line of small mountains of pollen and a great mountain of beeswax Ziggurat, which will fill the entire space of the Foundation.
From November 8th 2007 to January 6th 2008, the Fondazione Merz in Turin held the first important exhibition dedicated to Gino De Dominicis.
The exhibition, bigger than the one previously hosted at Centre National Villa Arson in Nice, is curated by Andrea Bellini and Laura Cherubini and will provide the rare opportunity to see around 40 works of the famous Italian artist, chosen amongst his most relevant production.
“Drawing is a chink for going beyond the kitsch of signs, theories, ideas… drawing is something sentimental.” (Mario Merz)
From 28 April to 29 July 2007 the Fondazione Merz presents the great retrospective Mario Merz: Drawings, produced in collaboration with the Kunstmuseum Winterthur (Switzerland) and curated by Dieter Schwarz and Beatrice Merz.
From 9 November 2006 the Merz Foundation presents Tanatosi [Thanatosis], a project by the artist Marzia Migliora, curated by Beatrice Merz.
Six works, of installation and video, conceived specifically by the artist for the space in the Foundation, create a path that unwinds among the works by Mario Merz.
On Friday 29th April 2005, the Fondazione Merz will inaugurate its own exhibition space with the first in a series of retrospectives dedicated to Mario Merz which follow on from the two exhibitions hosted this year by the GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea and by the Castello di Rivoli – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea as Turin’s homage to the artist, who died recently.
