Exhibition Exhibition”is the name of the exhibition which has begun on September 21st, and will wait for you until January 9th 2011 at Castello di Rivoli Museum of ontemporary Art, near Turin.

It is an exhibition organized by Adam Carr and includes works belonging to the last 60 years created around the concept of symmetry and duality of things.

Carr sets out to explore and reflect on the roles of perception and interpretation in the experience of viewing both works of art and art exhibitions, revising the ways in which we commonly view them. Taking place in the museum’s Manica Lunga building, for the exhibition the gallery space has been divided into two to form two separate galleries.

The itinerary includes works from ‘60s ‘til nowadays by international emerging and renowned artists, such as:

Tauba Auerbach (1981, living and working in New York and San Francisco), Nina Beier (1976, living and working in Berlin), Pierre Bismuth (1963, living and working in Bruxelles), Alighiero e Boetti (1940-1994), Marcel Broodthaers (1924-1976), Liudvikas Buklys (1984, living and working in Vilnius), Maurizio Cattelan (1960, living and working in Milan and New York), Gintaras Didžiapetris (1985, living and working in Vilnius).

Such an exhibition was conceived to be held at Manica Lunga spaces and it reflects upon the perception and experience to watch art and exhibitions.

Manica Lunga is a narrow, 150-meters-long corridor and it’s just in this kind of space that the idea of symmetry finds its relief valve. In the Manica Lunga of the Castle of Rivoli, visitors will find many paintings, videos, sound works, sculptures, installations and works based on performance action. In addition, there will be works which have been created just for this occasion.

Many meetings, events and concerts are scheduled until January 9th 2011, in order to awaken curiosity and to deep the basic ideas of the exhibition such as the copy and the original, the perception and the interpretation of contemporary art.

In order to find out the treasures and wonders of symmetry and dualità, go and visit Exhibition, Exhibition at Castello di Rivoli, located close to the city of Turin.
