From 08 June 2010 to 09 January 2011
curated by Beatrice Merz
tutto è connesso, the exhibition on the first and second floors of Castello di Rivoli, was conceived as a way of establishing a critical presentation based on works in the permanent collection, which will then result in a new installation. To this end, artists were directly involved in the curatorial project, re-installing their works in the collection, integrating them within the exhibition context and suggesting new juxtapositions.
Castello di Rivoli has an international reputation both for its exhibition activity and for the permanent collection installed in its historic and architecturally significant rooms. Within this singular context, one of the few in the world, contemporary creativity is even more enhanced through dialogue and contrast between the works and the historic spaces.
Over the years the collection has been enriched with works and large-scale installations; certain rooms that have played a role in the museum’s history, such as those of Richard Long and Sol LeWitt, will become, on this occasion, key elements for further developments. Nearly thirty years after its original installation in 1985, Nicola De Maria’s work will be presented in a new setting, in conjunction with the artist’s solo exhibition, curated by Rudi Fuchs.
tutto è connesso also includes recent acquisitions, many of which are being exhibited for the first time, by both well-established masters and artists from recent generations, offering visitors an itinerary through the most significant developments in art of the past decade. The artists include Giovanni Anselmo, Tacita Dean, Hamish Fulton, Mona Hatoum, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Simon Starling. For the first time at the Museum, the public will be able to view the works ENTRY DENIED (A Concert in Jerusalem), which were recently acquired with support from the CRT Foundation for Modern and Contemporary Art.
