The show

On Thursday 30 November, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art presents The Long Hot Summer, curated by Claudio Libero Pisano, twenty-four sound installations spread throughout the museum spaces.


“It was the summer of 1958 and Orson Welles, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were crossing the incandescent land of their feelings, in the dense heat of the days and nights of the deep American South. Their senses amplified and alerted. Life slipped onto a surreal plane where anything could happen, as always in summer. The film directed by Martin Ritt is the place from which the exhibition originated, a voice, a music, a song, a speech, a noise, everything here tells of summer. A few minutes to alert the senses and convey, beyond the gaze and the habit of observing and reading, a season that inspired art, literature, cinema and music.

The exhibition also unfolds in places not designated in the museum, passages and areas not reserved for the display of works. Sound installations must be sought and discovered and when listening, every environment proves to be a space for art”.
