The show

La Giornata del Contemporaneo promoted by AMACI - Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums, is the event organized every year to bring the art of our time to the general public.

24 AMACI museums and 1000 realities throughout Italy for the fifteenth time open their spaces for free to the public and officially open on October 12 the season of contemporary art in Italy, with a program that every year gives the opportunity to experience this close up complex and lively world.

For the 2019 edition, all the AMACI associated museums host a widespread and simultaneous exhibition by Eva Marisaldi, and in the GAM's shop space the 2017 Office building will be on display which will be visible until November 10th.

The work, in plexiglass, contains "models taken from photographs of benches that we have taken, without a reason, but for a long time: we have taken many, in Japan, in Korea, in North Africa, in the United States ... here we have selected six, those that we believe had some characteristics that can be traced back to the place of origin. (...) The benches also tell a lot about cultures we don't know, I consider them as study stations. The title is Offices, because the benches we represented have been photographed during journeys to other countries: you find yourself having to spend some time waiting, you have half a day off and you don't know what to do. Fortunately, everywhere there is some form of street furniture, which allows for example to stay in a park and consider it a temporary office. Great conversations do not necessarily occur, but it can happen. However, local dynamics are observed ”. Eva Marisaldi

In addition to the work of Eva Marisaldi, the visit with free admission includes the permanent collections of the twentieth century and Painting Space Sculpture. Contemporary Collections, together with the exhibition Paolo Icaro Antologia / Anthology 1964-2019.
