The exhibition, aims to present the work of Pino Pascali (Bari, 1935 – Rome, 1968) in dialogue with what is commonly called “tribal art.” It allows visitors to explore the artist’s creative approach through his bond with African culture, beginning from his interest in primitivism as opposed to the myths of modern society and attention to totemism, the phenomena of animal/individual, and the animistic notion of nature.
In fact, there are many synergies between tribal art and the poetics of Pino Pascali—an eclectic figure, sculptor, set designer, performer, and key player on the Italian art scene in the 1960s—who finds in African creative forms an inexhaustible source of inspiration in an attempt to open his practice up to a magical, fantastical, playful, and ambiguous dimension. The representation of stylized nature limited to its essential elements, the myth of primitivism, the use of the body as an extension of the work/object, the relationship between individual and collectivity, and the coexistence between the natural and the artificial characterize the investigations of Pascali, who stages but does not sublime Africa. He moves beyond sculptural essentiality and the study of figures in an attempt to restore that primordial harmony obfuscated by the prevailing intellectualism of the age while using matter as a tool of knowledge and a mythical invocation of life elements.
In primitive societies, a shaman is a person who acts poised between two worlds—here and beyond—in a dialogue with the forces of nature and expresses himself through mythical symbolism that cannot be traced back to categories of ideas and logical truths. Acknowledging life outside man and transforming each behavior into a language is what unites Pascali to the rituals and myths of primitive cultures. PASCALI SCIAMANO is a surprising exploration through the career of Pascali between 1966 and 1968 that will allow visitors to discover less known works, some of which have never been shown previously.
The itinerary interacts with the architecture, avoiding any direct confrontation between African works and the artist’s sculptures, but instead intimately relates his creations, almost as if evoking a free narration. The exhibition unfolds across the Foundation’s three floors, each of which is dedicated to one of the three years (1966/1967/1968) of his brief yet prolific career.

Educational
Fondazione Carriero Kids is an educational project thought for families that aims to guide children to the discovery of contemprary art, through guided visits and specifically designed laboratories for each exhibition.
The goal is to expose children to contemporary art in a fun and stimulating way, thus nurturing their curiosity through dialoguing with works and inviting them to learn how to ask questions on what we see every day but often do not notice.
Starting from the comparison amongst some of the exhibited works of art , children will be able to experiment with materials and special techniques, in order to grasp the different styles and flavours of the ideas of the three artists shown in the exhibition.

The project is aimed at children between the ages of five and twelve.

FASI LUNARI

Fondazione Carriero
The exhibition gathers together the works of the artist Albert Oehlen and six young artists, of his former students: Peppi Bottrop, Andreas Breunig, Max Frintrop, Fabian Ginsberg, Yuji Nagai, and David Ostrowski. It is curated by Francesco Stocchi with Albert Oehlen himself.
By presenting around 24 works, the show is an overview exclusively devoted to painting, unfolding almost like the story of an intense creative exchange born at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, where Albert Oehlen taught from 2000 to 2009.
27/10/2016 - 04/02/2017

Fontana · Leoncillo

Fondazione Carriero
Leoncillo and Lucio Fontana are invited to participate in the XXVII Venice Biennale (1954), each with his own room. The colored levels expand across the space, enlivening the matter with an inspiration that foreshadows the informal slant and in-depth research of substance in subsequent years. Roberto Longhi presents twenty-two sculptures reminiscent of cubism by Leoncillo, while Giampiero Giani introduces the Sculture spaziali by Fontana, who exhibits not only the “holes” but also some works from the 1930s and 1940s.

imaginarii

Fondazione Carriero
Objects do not exist due to their physical presence, but thanks to what we see.
imaginarii, the inaugural exhibition at the Fondazione Carriero, analyzes the contemporary notion
of space and its experience.
Three artists—Gianni Colombo, Giorgio Griffa,
 Davide Balula — are compared in a trialogue, which, in itself, is inaccessible, if not through direct experience of physical space. If the object and its image are finite, our experience of these is infinite and difficult to enjoy through reproduction techniques. The show investigates this spatial dimension.

La fondazione
The Fondazione aims to promote, enhance, and spread modern and contemporary art and culture, acting as a cultural pole in collaboration with the most affirmed and innovative artists, devoting space also to up-and-coming artists and figures from the past who deserve to be rediscovered. With an approach that combines rediscovery and experimentation, research in all forms of intellectual expression are accompanied by commissioning new works.

The Fondazione is born from the great willingness to share and the founder Giorgio Carriero’s passion for art. A particular aspect of the foundation is that it is not bound by displaying
a private collection, but rather aims to be a
center where art is made and culture is spread, with activities ranging from organizing exhibitions through new commissions to publishing catalogues, holding debates and conferences open to the public including specific events intended to educate and train.
