Events in Art and Archaeology

João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva: Papagaio
MILAN  •  HangarBicocca  •  12 June - 26 October 2014
 
 
The exhibition is devoted to the artistic duo whose presence at the latest Venice Biennale revealed their ability to use the language of cinema and installations in a unique, original manner. The exhibition winds its way through different settings and includes a large number of works made between 2004 and 2014, with many movies on film, three Camera Obscura installations (environments that recall the origins of cinema and photography) and a small cinema. The artists have produced ten new works for the exhibition, including a film shot on the archipelago of São Tomé and Príncipe, a former Portuguese colony in the Gulf of Guinea.

João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva are an artistic duo who have been working together since 2001, producing films, sculptures, photographs, installations and anthologies of texts that they themselves describe as “poetic-philosophical fiction”. Together with their work as visual artists, they also published a philosophical journal called Efluvio Magnetico.

Mario Testino : Works from the Mario Testino Collection
TURIN  •  The Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli  •  17 May - 14 September 2014
 
 
Curated by Neville Wakefield, Somos Libres II features works from Testino's personal art collection, including artists such as Tauba Auerbach, Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Glenn Ligon, Jonathan Monk, Ugo Rondinone, Cindy Sherman, Adriana Varejão, and Andy Warhol. For the past two decades we have come to understand the world of Mario Testino through his photography. While the images he creates with the camera are known to the world, the art that he collects which inspires him has remained largely private. Somos Libres II – translated from Spanish meaning “We Are Free” - was presented for the first time in 2013 at MATE, Mario Testino’s cultural institution in Lima, Peru.
