“Dreams That Money Can’t Buy” at MAXXI Museum of XXI Century Arts, Rome

On the occasion of the first edition of “The Independent”, the special project organised by MAXXI Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome and devoted to the independent actors of the international scene, CURA. is pleased to present “Dreams That Money Can’t Buy”, a group show featuring interventions of 32 international artists, devoted to the building of a partial “encyclopedic atlas”, recalling Warburg. The show is expression of a caothic universe in which images, videos and activities, illustrated works, objects, quotes and real life merge, become active in space, in a replacement device of the artwork. The image replacing the work expresses a tension towards the drafting of a shared imagination, in which classical forms and new languages come together in the flow of time. From the collage wall, pop-up screens—the extension of printed images—randomly project, over a few months, a selection of videos.

The project thus sums up the tension between the eye and the viewer, between surface and collage, between the two-dimensionality of the support and three-dimensionality of the inhabited space (Brian O’Dorothey) but also between image, value, object, presence and absence. The dematerialization of the artistic object in the printed format reflects chaos rather than imposing its own order (Lucy Lippard) longing for an exhibition place other than the phsysical space (Seth Siegelaub).The exhibition is finally referred to the ongoing project of a “curated” encyclopedia of the themes covered in the five years since CURA.’s birth, by a selection of almost 32 international artists and the display of books, DVDs, sources and excerpts.

Artists: Adrien Missika, Andrew Norman Wilson, Anna Franceschini, Daniel Gustav Cramer, David Douard, Francesco Arena, Gabriele De Santis, George Henry Longly, Haris Epaminonda, Ian Cheng, Ian Tweedy, Ingrid Olson, Invernomuto, Jack Lavender, Jimmy Limit, Luca Francesconi, Luca Trevisani, Maria Loboda, Martin Soto Climent, N. Dash, Neil Beloufa, Nico Vascellari, Nicolas Deshayes, Parker Ito, Per-Oskar Leu, Raphael Zarka, Riccardo Benassi, Richard Sides, Salvatore Arancio, Sara Cwynar, Tilman Hornig, Timur Si-Qin, Tomaso De Luca.
