GAM (Galleria d’Arte Moderna) continues with the exhibition “Adolfo Wildt (1868-1931). Last symbolist”, aimed at focusing attention on the most significant core groups that make up his sculptural works. 

Staged with the collaboration of Musées d’Orsay and the Orangerie in Paris, the show is devoted to the research the artist from Milan conducted into the plastic and material quality of sculpture, illustrated through 55 works in plaster, marble and bronze, accompanied by a series of original drawings and a number of works for comparison: the Vestale by Antonio Canova, as well as works by Fausto Melotti, Lucio Fontana and Arrigo Minerbi.

ROME  •  Gagosian Gallery  •  14 January - 5 March 2016
Prototypology explores research and development in the work of thirty contemporary artists, tracing the evolution from idea to finished artwork through drawings, archives, maquettes, and bricolage. In doing so the exhibition establishes a typology of diverse drafts.

The studio is a liminal zone for sourcing, modifying, and testing. Derived from the Italian word schizzare (splash), a "sketch" represents the initial impulse from mind to hand, the developmental process whereby form begins to emerge. In the laboratory of the studio, bricolage is often used as an instinctual method in the construction of prototypes.

Artists: Vladimir Arkhipov, Richard Artschwager, Nina Beier, Will Boone, Mike Bouchet, Chris Burden, Jason Dodge, Aleksandra Domanović, Dan Graham, Loris Gréaud, Michael Heizer, Carsten Höller, Thomas Houseago, Allan McCollum, Takashi Murakami, Albert Oehlen, Claes Oldenburg, Steven Parrino, Giuseppe Penone, Kirsten Pieroth, Ry Rocklen, Nancy Rubins, Arcangelo Sassolino, David Smith, Rudolf Stingel, Robert Therrien, Mungo Thomson, Tatiana Trouvé, Cy Twombly, Rachel Whiteread.
