Jan Fabre “Stigmata” at MAXXI

The partnership between MAXXI and Fondazione Romaeuropa continues to bear fruit. Following last year’s tribute to William Kentridge, another genius from the contemporary art scene will be the protagonist in a joint venture staged by the two institutions: from 16 October, an exhibition and two theatrical productions will bring the obsessions and visions of Jan Fabre to Rome.

MAXXI will be housing the first retrospective to present his work as an artist performer from 1976 to the present, while at the Teatro Eliseo, within the ambit of the Romaeuropa Festival 2013, Fabre will be staging two productions from the 1980s.

Like a river, like an avalanche, 92 transparent panels, glass work tables will invade the MAXXI spaces carrying over 800 documents, drawings, thinking models, films, art works and residual elements of the performances realised by Jan Fabre from 1976 to the present.

INTERVIEW: DAVID PHOENIX

Interviews | November 16, 2020

"More than a job, this is my purpose. Sensing, understanding, expressing are the guidelines that have led me to what you will witness in my artwork. As per my personality, my art is a stylistic fusion of encounters and opportunities. Starting with puntinism and arriving to Action Painting and Pouring Painting, I have found my "colourful" way of expressing myself. Passion, a desire to live render my artwork my presentation card. Every single brush stroke, chromatic flexion, line of colour exploded on the canvas, is a part of me." Read more
