Dominique Gauthier

Exhibition from 15 june to 22 september 2019

Dans sa peinture ou ses écrits, Dominique Gauthier fait preuve d’une sorte de sauvagerie poétique que dément sa voix douce et posée, ses gestes mesurés, son apparente absence d’excès, un chat souple, précis, au milieu de son immense atelier. C’est dans sa pratique de la peinture qu’il devient paroxystique et possiblement rugissant. More information

Dominique Gauthier

Exhibition from 13 june to 22 september 2019

La décision de cette exposition dans trois lieux différents est venue à la suite d’une causerie ou Dominique Gauthier a parlé d’une série de tableaux Provisions pour Cimabué réalisée entre 1987 et 1989, jamais montrés et peints dans une période de sa vie où il éprouvait une certaine colère. Après avoir cédé à l’attrait de l’inédit, de la série cachée, nous avons d’un commun accord décidé de la montrer mêlée, confrontée à d’autres travaux plus anciens et plus récents. More information

Dominique Gauthier

Exposition du 8 juin au 22 septembre 2019

L’exposition Aux sources des années 1980 interroge leur musée imaginaire et en cherche l’écho dans des formes survivant dans la peinture des années 1980 en France, à partir d’un ensemble d’œuvres représentatives d’un dialogue fécond avec la tradition. En confrontant des démarches très diversifiées, elle permet d’appréhender la peinture de cette période dans son ensemble, en faisant éclater les habituels clivages entre Peinture cultivée et Figuration Libre.

Moonlight – 50 Years of Photographing the Moon
25 May–22 September, 2019

Humankind’s first steps on the Moon became etched in the collective consciousness via the lenses of the Hasselblad cameras which formed part of each Apollo mission from 1969 to 1972. The images are among the most iconic in the history of photography. They showed us the Moon – as well as the Earth – as we had never seen it before. In 2019, to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing, Moonlight: 50 years of photographing the Moon will explore the evolving relationship between humanity and the Moon through the medium of photography and film, encompassing ideas of science, documentary, experiment, and progress but also art, imagination, parody and critique.

Kate MccGwire / Dream

Chiostro del Bramante | Rome, Italy

Kate MccGwire

Exhibition from 28 september 2018 to 25 august 2019

Dream is an allegorical journey towards the most secret part of the human soul; the theme of dreams is developed through the idea of a journey, and, according to Sigmund Freud, constitutes the channel or “the royal road” for entering into contact with the unconscious and the spiritual dimension.

The exhibition, curated by Danilo Eccher, considers the dream as an element of reflection, of discovery, as a private expression, as a gateway into the deepest space of the soul.

Site-specific works alternate with works redesigned for the spaces of the Chiostro del Bramante, in a sequence that turns into one big story, thanks partly to the direct involvement of the artists. The exhibition itinerary is imagined as an experience that leads the public from the darkest zones to the meditative dimension and on to the heavenly spaces of the soul.

“Dream is the representation of the idea of the dream, another dimension that transcends the physical nature of perception to enter the territory of emotion, of enchantment, of poetry.“ Danilo Eccher

It is a journey that is physical, surreal, mental and dreamlike, leading the spectators through a series of stages and passages, stops and re-starts: from immersion in nature to a confrontation with shapes, from the evocation of personal and collective memories to contact with matter, from shadows, sounds, and darkness towards total immersion in light.

Dream completes the trilogy conceived and curated by Danilo Eccher for Chiostro del Bramante, which began with Love (2016), followed by Enjoy (2017). Three great exhibitions dedicated to the most intimate human emotions represented through the many poetics of contemporary art; three panoramas that are capable of exploring the feelings of the soul: from the ambiguity of desire to the most exhilarating joys and on into the unconscious.
