Cob is pleased to announce two works by Cat Roissteer, Hag and This Is A Poppy, have bveen selected by Ilaria Bonacossa for inclusion in Frenetic Standstill at GAM.
Frenetic Standstill is the title of the physical exhibitions of Artissima Unplugged hosted in the museums of Fondazione Torino Musei (GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Palazzo Madama – Museo Civico d’Arte Antica, and MAO Museo d’Arte Orientale) and postponed to December 2020, compatibly with the release of new decrees.
The modernist GAM building, on the ground floor and in the basement, will host an installation of surprising visual polyphony with over 100 works from the galleries of the Main Section and the Dialogue/Monologue section of Artissima, selected by Ilaria Bonacossa. The works from the Main Section are monumental pieces by great artists who are true pioneers, combined with irreverent experiments by international talents: small, unexpected creative signs, sculptures, large installations, paintings and photographs provide a variegated overview of the research of artists all over the world. The galleries of the Dialogue/Monologue section, on the other hand, will present more intimate pieces, which are nevertheless equally capable of activating resonance and stimulating reflection.
