Anne-James Chaton at Cripta747 in Turin

Portraits, the first solo show in Italy of French artist and writer Anne-James Chaton opens at Cripta747  tomorrow (Tuesday 31 May, 2016). 

The exhibition includes two series of works that the artist has been carrying on for years, enriching them from time to time with new elements. Assuming that we are defined by the writings we spread, Chaton realizes portraits composed by all the textual matrices that the subject carries with him during the meeting with the artist. Conceptually symmetrical to the Portraits, Muséographies shifts the focus to the circulation of “poor images,” comparing portraits by classical painters and information about art accessibility and fruition.

Curated by Bruno Barsanti and Alessandro Carrer
