Anne Imhof: Sex, 15 Mar 2021 — 28 Feb 2021

Anne Imhof: Sex

Curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Marcella Beccaria, the exhibition is a collaboration with Tate, London and Art Institute, Chicago

Castello di Rivoli, Piazza Mafalda di Savoia, Rivoli

Castello di Rivoli hosts the first Italian institutional show dedicated to Anne Imhof (Giessen, Germany, 1978), artist awarded with the Golden Lion for the German pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale.

The exhibition opens with a great performance specially conceived by the artist for the Manica Lunga space. The show includes installations, paintings and sculptures in an unprecedented display of new and recent works, including a selection of drawings never exhibited. “The artistic material that Imhof uses”, says Director Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, “is the gathering of people whose movements and gestures create, together with the music, a disturbing experience where the audience is not distinguished from the performers who, in contagious and viral, they form groups characterized by an attention to narcissism and bodily presence in a digital age, like ours, in which the virtual experience seems to take over more and more “.

The exhibition with performance by Anne Imhof is part of the broader exhibition context Espressioni, the large collective exhibition in two parts organized by the Museum between 2020 and 2021.
