The collections of the MAXXI art present themselves as a strong nucleus that witnesses the national and international artistic production

The closing of the exhibition has been extended to 4 November 2018
Talia Chetrit, Invernomuto (Simone Bertuzzi and Simone Trabucchi) and Diego Marcon are the three finalists in the MAXXI BVLGARI Prize, the museum’s project supporting and promoting young artists that thanks to the partnership with Bulgari will from this year be renewed, reinforced and projected onto the international art scene.
The finalists – chosen by an international jury composed of David Elliott, independent curator, Yuko Hasegawa, Artistic Director of MOT in Tokyo, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, Hou Hanru, Artistic Director at MAXXI, and Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, Director of MAXXI Arte – present site-specific works in Gallery 4 along with groups of previously shown works.
The exhibition is arranged in a fluid, immersive layout that allows visitors to explore the work of the finalists who are presenting new and recent projects: from Invernomuto presenting a work composed of the film Calendoola: SURUS, a sound installation, a sculpture and a perfume, to Ludwig by Diego Marcon, the first work of the artist realised entirely in CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery), through to Amateur, the photographic nucleus and the video presented by Talia Chetrit.
The winner of the 9th edition will be announced on the 26th of October 2018 and the catalogue of the exhibition dedicated to the three finalists will be presented on the occasion of the prize-giving. The work will be acquired by MAXXI and will be added to the museum’s permanent collection.
Talia Chetrit, MAXXI BVLAGRI PRIZE finalist. ph. Musacchio & Ianniello
Talia Chetrit is an American photographer. Her work questions the relationship between reality and representation, by exploring the spontaneity of the subject before the camera and the boundary between public and private spheres. Chetrit herself is often the protagonist of her representations, just as her partner, friends, and family members frequently become the subjects of her images. The group of over twenty photographs within Amateur, presented on the occasion of the MAXXI BVLGARI PRIZE, consists of a selection from Chetrit’s most recent artistic output, images and a video from her archive, as well as new works. In the series of self-portraits taken between 2016 and 2018, Chetrit is depicted naked, partially or in full, photographed via a mirror or a cable release within her studio in New York.
Simone Bertuzzi e Simone Trabucchi, MAXXI BVLAGRI PRIZE finalist. ph. Musacchio & Ianniello
Invernomuto includes Simone Bertuzzi and Simone Trabucchi, both of them artists and musicians. Their work is prismatic, an open device, a meeting place between different languages like music, video, sculpture, performance, and writing. On the occasion of the prize, the duo has presents a complex work consisting of a film, a sound installation, a sculpture, and a fragrance. Continuing from the research that began in 2016 with Calendoola—a series of works that exploits the structure of a TV series—Calendoola: SURUS it is a film based on the interweaving of two main stories that unfold on parallel spatial and temporal planes.
Diego Marcon, MAXXI BVLAGRI PRIZE finalist. ph. Musacchio & Ianniello
Poised between cinema and visual arts, Diego Marcon’s works feature the use of both video and 35mm, 16mm, and Super8 film. The artist uses different processes to explore the potential of the various media by using different techniques: intervening directly on the film with painting and etching, by way of traditional animation and, more recently, via the use of computer-generated imagery (CGI)—an ensemble of computer applications used to realize special effects and animation for cinema, video games, and advertising. At MAXXI, Marcon presents Ludwig, his first video entirely made in CGI. Below the deck of a ship at the mercy of a storm, a child wearing a blue sweater and a yellow polo is illuminated by a lighted match which he holds in his hands as he sings, his voice interrupted as soon as the flame starts to burn his fingers and is snuffed out.
