2020 ART QUADRIENNALE
The FUORI 2020 Art Quadriennale, curated by Sarah Cosulich and Stefano Collicelli Cagol, is the exhibition of contemporary Italian art at Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome, which offers a unique and unforgettable journey through works from the 1960s to the present day.
With its 43 artists, more than half of whom are aged less than 40, and its large female presence, FUORI (meaning OUT) aims at being an unexpected reinterpretation of Italian art by building previously unseen bridges between different generations that have worked in various sectors of creativity.
FUORI, which is the result of three years of research, presents paintings, sculptures, videos, drawings and installations resulting from the mingling of visual arts and other disciplines such as drama, dance, cinema, fashion, architecture, music and design.
FUORI overcomes the boundaries between disciplines and media, but also those between sex and gender, to welcome feminine, feminist and queer imageries into its rooms.
FUORI is not a themed exhibition, but was created through reflection on three fields of research: the Palace, as a metaphor for the relationship between art and power, starting from the very venue, Palazzo delle Esposizioni; Desire, because seduction has always lied at the heart of art; the Incommensurable, testifying to the need of art to transcend the boundaries of what is known to cross the threshold of the unimaginable.
FUORI is an invitation to think outside the box, to assume an eccentric – off-centered – position, to adopt an oblique look based on a mutual relationship with otherness.
FUORI is liberation from any constraint or category.
OUT of mind,
OUT of fashion,
OUT of time,
OUT of scale,
OUT of play,
OUT of everything.
OUT of place is what the 2020 Art Quadriennale wants to be, through the works and research of the presented artists.
