Nicola Pecoraro at Macro Curated by Luca Lo Pinto
Opening October 12 2009 h. 7pm
Macro – Via Reggio Emilia 54 – Rome
MACRO, Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome is pleased to present the new project Roommates/Coinquilini. During the next months, the Museum will host a series of exhibitions, at any of which two young curators will invite a pair of emerging Roman artists to share one room of the museum as if it was an apartment. The curators will organize the space allowing the artists to be in dialogue with each other, and express the ideas of cohabitation and community.
The first roommates at MACRO will be Nicola Pecoraro and the duo goldiechiari, curated by Luca Lo Pinto and Cecilia Canziani, respectively. For the occasion, the curators and the artists have prepared an innovative display that highlights tensions and contradictions, but also relations and connections, between the specific works that will be on view. In this occasion, the aesthetic discourse will develop investigating nature and artefact, past and present, politics and poetry.
