Windows

Complesso monumentale di San Nicolò

    From Thursday 24 June

    To Sunday 11 July

curated by

Teodora di Robilant

in collaboration with

Galleria Alessandra Bonomo

The group exhibition Windows is the first of a series curated by Teodora di Robilant in collaboration with the Galleria Alessandra Bonomo and created for the Chiostro di San Nicolò. The complex has been an active cultural centre since the 1960s: in 1972 the exhibition 420 West Broadway featured 33 artists led by Leo Castelli, André Emmerich, Sonnabend and John Weber; in the same year, Sol LeWitt created his public work Wall Drawing #136, the first exhibited in Spoleto. Windows is conceived as an immersive exploration around nature, highlighting different ways in which artists have represented natural forms. The exhibition includes a selection of works by international artists which reflect on the current state of nature and man’s relationship with it, through videos, installations, photos and paintings. The works also investigate the ways in which natural elements generate new artistic languages and different ways of reading the world. Natural light filters through the large windows of the cloister, creating a sense of continuity between the exhibition and outside spaces. Each artist presents a standalone work. Collectively, the works form a singular vision. Windows includes artists from diverse fields, leading to unexpected points of contact. The exhibition includes site-specific works.
