Sam Pulitzer

curated by Michele D’Aurizio

18 Sep - 07 Nov 2012

On 18 September the Fondazione Pastificio Cerere will open the first solo exhibition in Italy by the American artist Sam Pulitzer. Open to the public until 7 November, the show is the second of two events planned by Michele D’Aurizio –the Fondazione’s 2012 curator-in-residence—and presents Untitled (2012), an installation of graphic works on adhesive vinyl, applied to the walls of the foundation’s exhibition spaces.

Pulitzer’s artistic research is founded on the recontextualization of objects and images endowed with a distinctive cultural value. The artist frequently makes use of iconographic repertoires that testify to the emergence of a language comprehensible to the majority of people as a consequence of the process of diffusion of the imagery of the subcultures that have appeared over the last few decades. Through the use of this language, Pulitzer comments on the aesthetic dynamics of representation at work inside and outside the system of contemporary art.

From 28 to 30 September, on the occasion of Roma Art 2Nights, special opening of the Fondazione Pastificio Cerere at the following times: Friday 28 September and Saturday 29 September from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday 30 September from 12 a.m. to 6 p.m.
