Marco Anelli, Building Magazzino



Marco Anelli, Building Magazzino

The Italian Cultural Institute of New York and Magazzino Italian Art, the new warehouse art space in the Hudson Valley dedicated to Post-war and Contemporary Italian Art, announce Marco Anelli: Building Magazzino, a multi-year project by Italian photographer Marco Anelli, commissioned by Magazzino founders Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu. Anelli’s portfolio documents Magazzino Italian Art’s construction process in its entirety—from its conceptualization in 2014, to its transformation from an industrial building into one dedicated to an extraordinary collection of Italian Art.

A curated selection of Marco Anelli’s photographs will be presented in an exhibition at the Italian Cultural Institute of New York opening October 4 through November 2, inaugurating the Institute’s fall season. The exhibition, curated by Magazzino’s Director Vittorio Calabrese, will feature 24 large-format photographs displayed throughout the Institute.

The foyer and the first-floor gallery will be dedicated to some of the portraits Anelli realized during the past two years at Magazzino, shown in almost real-life proportions (60x60 in.), while the ground floor gallery will present a selection of photographs depicting the different phases of the construction, subtly referencing the passing of time in a juxtaposition of void and materiality, finished with unfinished, detail and the whole.

The photographs on display are selected from a larger body of works featured in its entirety in the book Marco Anelli: Building Magazzino, Magazzino Italian Art’s first editorial project, available in bookstores beginning November 2017.

On the occasion of the exhibition opening, the project Marco Anelli: Building Magazzino will be presented by the Director of the Italian Cultural Institute of New York Giorgio Van Straten, in conversation with the artist and Magazzino Italian Art’s founders Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu.
