The Coppola Foundation in Vicenza presents the new frontiers of the contemporary

The Coppola Foundation, at Vicenza's Torrione, is offering four exhibitions by contemporary artists from Oct. 31, 2019 to March 31, 2020.

From October 31, 2019 to March 31, 2020, the Coppola Foundation in Vicenza is proposing The New Frontiers of the Contemporary, a series of exhibitions aimed at learning more about the work of four contemporary artists: at the Torrione di Vicenza, the Foundation’s exhibition venue, there will be interventions, installations and works by Hannah Levy (from October 31); Haroon Mirza (from November 22); Christian Manuel Zanon (from December 1); and Guglielmo Castelli (from December 14). The exhibitions, each under the patronage of the City of Vicenza, will occupy the six floors of the Torrione, dialoguing with the architectural space and offering novel and diverse readings of both the exhibition context and the works on display. The four artists who will be offered to the public express an original point of view in artistic language: sculpture for Hannan Levy; video, sound and installation for Mirza; installation and drawing for Zanon; and painting for Castelli.

Hannah Levy (New York, 1991) was awarded the title of Meisterschüler at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Her production explores the connections between art and design, aiming to overcome this dichotomy. The artist works primarily with sculpture, and his works are intended to lead to a reflection around objects, their logic of meaning and the relationship that is intended to be established with them. On display at the Coppola Foundation will be five silicone works made between 2017 and 2019, previously exhibited at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1 and in London.

Haroon Mirza (1977) is a British artist, internationally known for his complex and immersive installations that combine sound, light waves, electricity, LEDs and various other materials. The artist works almost like a composer as he focuses on the perceptual distinctions between noise, sound and music,. Two video installations will be on display in the exhibition: Adhãn Anthemoessa (2009), a work that won the Northern Art Prize in 2011, and Birds of Pray (2010). Haroon Mirza received the Silver Lion at the 54th Venice International Art Biennale in 2011.

Christian Manuel Zanon (Cittadello, 1985) is a visual artist. In his work, the artist privileges procedure and processuality: unexpected materialize his installations, project drawings, photos and videos that rebel against the architectural structure of thought, even theoretical.

Guglielmo Castelli (1987) is considered among the most promising young artists of the new generation and works mainly with painting and drawing. His paintings, dominated by melancholic and intimate atmospheres, are characterized by fluid forms and extensive backgrounds, almost as if the subjects are caught in a moment of transformation. The exhibition will feature four small- and medium-sized paintings made in 2019. The artist is currently a finalist for the 2019 Cairo Prize.
