16TH ART QUADRIENNALE – Other times, other myths

The Art Quadriennale is the only institutional exhibition devoted to contemporary Italian art. After eight years it is back at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome with the title “Altri tempi, altri miti” [Other times, other myths]. This year’s exhibition aims to map out contemporary visual arts in Italy and is promoted and organized by the Fondazione La Quadriennale di Roma and the Azienda Speciale Palaexpo. It will feature ten exhibition sections developed by eleven curators and ninety-nine artists, with one hundred and fifty artworks produced especially for the event or of recent production.

It enjoys the support of the Minister for Cultural Assets and Activities, Dario Franceschini, and has been renewed by the Chairman of the Fondazione La Quadriennale di Roma, Franco Bernabè. For the first time this year the curators were selected by an external interdisciplinary panel on the basis of a call for projects: Simone Ciglia and Luigia Lonardelli, Michele D’Aurizio, Luigi Fassi, Simone Frangi, Luca Lo Pinto, Matteo Lucchetti, Marta Papini, Cristiana Perrella, Domenico Quaranta, Denis Viva. Although they all have different educational and professional backgrounds, they have all influenced the contemporary cultural debate in some way. A programme of fringe events arranged by museums, foundations and private galleries around the capital will unfold alongside the Art Quadriennale.

The title draws inspiration from the collection Un weekend postmoderno. Cronache dagli anni Ottanta by the writer Pier Vittorio Tondelli (1955‒91), deemed to be a cult work, which offers a fragmented narrative of Italy through a dizzying sarabande of journeys around the peninsula. Similarly, the 16th Quadriennale is conceived as a changing map of artistic and cultural production in contemporary Italy and is divided into ten exhibition sections, each entrusted to a different curator (or two curators in one case) and each exploring a specific theme, method, approach or genealogy that connotes the art projects.

INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

Interviews | October 12, 2020

I am looking for abstract compositions in my surroundings to capture them photographically. The objects and situations are neither changed, arranged nor manually illuminated, nor are they subsequently edited on the computer, even the detail is identical to the shot. All pictures are 'Pure Photography'. I see my surroundings as a 'natural exhibition space'. I find works of art on the pavement, on building walls, in the water and in factory buildings. These works of art are fixations of the moment and therefore difficult to reproduce. A different angle of view, a changed incidence of light, and the colours, bizarrely changed forms have disappeared. Read more
