Ti Bergamo, una comunità
GAMeC, Bergamo, IT

Ti Bergamo is not an exhibition on art and Covid, but a broader reflection on the sense of community.

The exhibition takes its title from the drawing produced and donated to the museum by the Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi in support of the fundraising campaign for the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital which the GAMeC promoted on its social platforms throughout the period of the healthcare emergency in the city.

A room in the museum will be entirely given over to Radio GAMeC, the project which started life on the social platforms of the Gallery during the health crisis. In the exhibition, it will be possible to listen once more to the sixty-six episodes of the podcast—presenting Italian and international voices from a wide range of backgrounds, from culture to research, and from entertainment to sport—and through the use of a QR code, listen to the recordings of the five editions of Radio GAMeC Real Live, with live encounters in the museum courtyard which in the MASBEDO Videomobile saw artists such as Nic Cester & The Milano Elettrica, Andrea Pennacchi with Giorgio Gobbo, Cristiano Godano, Alessandro Sciarroni, and Virgilio Sieni. There will also be the visual contributions produced by a number of the artists who took part in the project: Jeremy Deller, Simone Fattal, Goldschmied & Chiari, Thomas Hirschhorn, Michael Höpfner, Ragnar Kjartansson, Julian Rosefeldt, Olimpia Zagnoli, and Adrian Paci, who decided to bring together here the twenty-six posters from the initiative Poster Quotidiano, conceived together with Iva Lulashi and Fabio Roncato, and curated by Giuseppe Frangi and Rischa Paterlini, in support of the Fondazione Progetto Arca Onlus.

The poster from work La parola è sempre l'avanguardia dell'azione is exhibited. This work scrutinizes the dynamics of the current political situation in Italy. In light of the increasing populist alignment – not only of local government policies, but also of other governments worldwide – the articles of the Italian constitution cited on the horse costumes (Italian: gualdrappe) appear like a reminding farewell to fundamental values of civilization, which for a long time seemed to be guaranteed and unassailable but are endangered nowadays by populist movements around the world.

MANIFESTO: Art x Agency
Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC
Manifesto: Art x Agency is a group exhibition that examines the art historical impact of artist manifestos from the 20th century to present day. Organized by the Hirshhorn’s Chief Curator Stéphane Aquin, Manifesto: Art x Agency also marks the Washington, D.C., debut of German artist Julian Rosefeldt’s multichannel film installation, Manifesto, presented alongside a diverse selection of works from the museum’s permanent collection. Comprising more than 100 works of art and ephemera created over a hundred-year period, Manifesto: Art x Agency explores how artists used manifestos to engage with the political and social issues of their time and how contemporary practices still employ art as a tool in the making of history.
