The show

Fondazione Modena Arti Visive presents Ultima perfection , a personal exhibition of the artist Quayola (Rome, 1982), which will be held in the upper rooms of Palazzo Santa Margherita from 18 September 2020 to 10 January 2021 , curated by Daniele De Luigi and produced by FMAV in collaboration with the Marignana Arte gallery in Venice. The exhibition, which opens on the occasion of the festivalfilosofia 2020 dedicated to the theme " Machines " (18-20 September 2020), is the artist's first solo show in an Italian institution and is the result of the participation of Fondazione Modena Arti Visive in the edition 2019 of the Level 0 Award of Art Verona, which involved 13 of the main Italian museums and contemporary art institutions.

Quayola confronts the Western artistic tradition and rethinks it through the most advanced contemporary technologies, to which it assigns a new role: no longer a tool, but a partner with whom to confront and explore new possible ways of interpreting reality.

For the Roman artist, technology is no longer subject to man, but an accomplice in the formulation of new languages and therefore, by extension, of new categories that are now part of everyday life, of abstract thought and of the aesthetic sensitivity of man. contemporary. On this anthropological premise Quayola builds his research , in which the painting and sculpture of the old masters constitute the starting point. This approach leads to works that use both technological and traditional supports, a choice that allows to mark the dialogue between past and present. The media chosen by the artist are in fact prints and sculptures in different materials, but also videos, audiovisual performances and immersive installations, often in historically significant architectural sites.
