This is the first solo show in Italy by Canadian-born, New York-based artist Erin Shirreff. Entirely made up of new pieces created specifically for the occasion, the exhibition offers Italian viewers their first major opportunity to experience the work of an artist who, in her early forties, can already be found in the collections of prestigious international museums such as the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), MoMA (New York) and the Guggenheim (New York).
The project consists of two parts: a video projected in cinematographic dimensions and a group of sculptures with a more intimate character. All the works have been created specifically for the exhibition and are exhibited for the first time in the hall of Banca di Bologna.
This solo show by Erin Shirreff is one of ten events chosen for the Art City cultural program, a joint initiative in which the Bologna City Council and BolognaFiere have selected a calendar of high-profile curatorial events to complement Arte Fiera.
