SANTISSIMI

June 29, 2018 – September 16, 2018
EXMA Exhbiting and Moving Arts, Cagliari

SANTISSIMI – a duo by Sara Renzetti (1978) and Antonello Serra (1977) – are among the most representative artists of Sardinian new generation, widely appreciated on the national and international scene. Through a rigorous selection of works, the exhibition encompasses their artistic research as it has been developing since 2009, when Renzetti and Serra, after their training in Florence and their individual first steps, chose to work together, starting to shape small and large, maniacally detailed silicone sculptures, not concerning hyperrealism itself, but rather the possibility of faithfully embracing the variety and complexity of the human being.

Constantin Brancusi Sculpture

CONSTANTIN BRANCUSI SCULPTURE
July 22, 2018–February 18, 2019
The Museum of Modern Art, Floor 2
Organized by Paulina Pobocha, Associate Curator, with Mia Matthias, Curatorial Fellow, Department of Painting and Sculpture

Looking back at the first showing of Constantin Brancusi’s work (1876–1957) in the United States, in the 1913 Armory Show, one writer reflected that sculptures on view were “disturbing, so disturbing indeed that they completely altered the attitude of a great many New Yorkers towards a whole branch of art.” Indeed, Brancusi’s beguilingly simple forms looked like nothing else, then or since.

HUMAN+. THE FUTURE OF OUR SPECIES
February 27 – July 01, 2018
Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome
Curated by Cathrine Kramer

HUMAN+ was conceived and first exhibited at Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin.
This new iteration of HUMAN+ is a coproduction of the exhibition by Science Gallery and Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona.

Cyborgs, superhumans and clones. Evolution or extinction? What does it mean to be a human today? What will it feel like to be a human a hundred years from now? Technological capabilities are increasing at a rapid pace – should we continue to embrace modifications to our minds, bodies and daily lives, or are there boundaries we shouldn’t overstep?
