“A Two-Dimensional Surface Without Any Articulation is a Dead Experience”
selected by Francesco Joao SCAVARDA
Opening: 22 November, 6-9 pm
how is everything going?
Are you already in Turin or still in Milan?
I was looking for ideas about the title and the press release for the opening of BeatTricks when a work by John Baldessari made in 1967 came to mind.
“A TWO-DIMENSIONAL SURFACE WITHOUT ANY ARTICULATION IS A DEAD EXPERIENCE”
I thought it was a good title for the show, even if using this reference means to misinterpret Baldessari’s work and giving it a “literal” meaning, but I think it’s a good excuse to talk about the idea of the works selected for the show at BT.
Basically the exhibition features a selection of objects and paintings, some works are objects, others are paintings, others (or maybe all of them) are between this two situations.
I think it is a pretty direct choice and so I would prefer not to write a proper text.
Maybe we could print this email itself and use it as a release (?)
