Benoît Maire – Spiaggia di menzogne – Fondazione Giuliani, Rome

Fondazione Giuliani is pleased to present Spiaggia di menzogne (Lying Beach), French artist Benoît Maire’s first solo exhibition in Italy.

This system, imbued with philosophical, artistic or literary references, questions the affective value of a theory, it poses a problem.

This creates a similar effect as a wash of color or varnish. (more…)
