Anish Kapoor - MACRO Rome

Anish Kapoor

Through April 17, 2017

Anish Kapoor is back at long last for his first exhibition in an Italian museum in 10 years, now at the MACRO in Rome, through April 17th.

Curated by Mario Codognato

The exhibition Anish Kapoor is a testimony to the artist’s unflagging research in the formal and conceptual spheres, which has informed his artistic practice from the start, contrasting the highly engineered and more organic processes of his work.

On view are a series of reliefs and paintings made up of jutting layers of red and white silicone and paint, as well as monumental architectural sculptures, including the extraordinary “Sectional Body Preparing for Monadic Singularity,” displayed last year outdoors in the park of the Palace of Versailles, and proposed at the MACRO in a dialogue with the museum’s architecture.

Archetypal, intimate, imposing and dialectic, Kapoor’s work presents, confronts and explores the conditions of matter, the dynamics of perception and the power of metaphor. Read more…

Considered one of the greatest artists of the contemporary scene, Anish Kapoor was born in Bombay in India in 1954, currently lives and works in London. His works are housed are in the most important private collections and museums around the world.
