, The Continuity of the Everyday in 20th Century Art
Castell di Rivoli-Museo d'Arte contemporanea, Torino, Italy
ZHU Jia 朱加
Over 200 works by figures in modern and contemporary art movements are being shown in an exhaustive look at the art of the 20th century and how it has interpreted everyday life. With the opening of the Castello di Rivoli's exhibition spaces, this show - which includes works by artists outside Europe - juxtaposes avant-garde culture with the everyday. This book opens with works by the masters of cubism and futurism with Braque, Picasso and Boccioni; it continues with New Dadaism, exemplified by Rauschenberg, the underground films of Warhol, the pop images of Hamilton and Oldenburg, and on to the Sixties with Pistoletto and Richter. The Seventies are presented by Gilbert & George, Boltanski, Dan Graham and On Kawara. Late-1990s movements are seen through the works of Nan Goldin, Fischli & Weiss, Sophie Calle, Jeff Wall, to the younger Beat Streuli, Felix Gonzales-Torres, Richard Billingham and Rikrit Tiravanija.
