Stefano Arienti's "Meridian Windows" continues in Genoa

Continuing through Jan. 28 in Genoa is Stefano Arienti's solo exhibition entitled 'Meridian Windows. Intersections with the Villa Croce Collection'. At the Villa Croce Museum.

There is time until Jan. 28, 2018, to visit the solo exhibition of Stefano Arienti (Asola, 1961), one of Italy’s best-known and most highly regarded contemporary artists, which opened last Oct. 15 at the Villa Croce Museum of Contemporary Art in Genoa. The exhibition, entitled Finestre Meridiane. Intersections with the Villa Croce Collection, features a series of Arienti’s never-before-seen works, called Meridiane and created since 2012: a total of about eighty works, drawn in front of the window of the home or studio, which are placed in dialogue with works from the permanent collection of the Genoese museum.

"The Sundials," recalls the presentation of the review, curated by Anna Daneri and Francesca Serrati, “are drawn with light, at the window of the house or studio, with a technique refined over the years by the artist and which sees him directly translate, with his own body, the variations of light through the color chosen from time to time.” This is the first exhibition for the Sundials series, enhanced by the comparison with the works at Villa Croce. As Arienti himself explains, “the works are arranged with great freedom, without respecting museographic criteria, but encouraging the rhythm of attention and discovery.”

The artist lives and works in Milan. He graduated in agricultural sciences in 1986, participated in his first group exhibition in 1985 and was later selected for the Venice, Istanbul and Gwangju Biennales. He has exhibited in solo shows held at MAXXI in Rome, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice, Palazzo Ducale in Mantua, Galleria Civica in Modena and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. He has also taught at the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo and the IUAV University of Venice.

Visiting hours for the exhibition coincide with Villa Croce Museum hours: Thursdays and Fridays 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Saturdays, Sundays and holidays 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Closed Monday through Wednesday. Full-price ticket is 5 euros, reduced 3 euros for under 16, over 65, teachers, students and concessionaires.
