Memmo Foundation presents Conversation Piece | Part IV, a new appointment for a cycle of exhibitions, curated by Marcello Smarrelli, dedicated to Italian and foreign artists who are temporarily present in Rome or who are closely connected to the city in some way. The exhibition will be open to the public from the 17th of December 2017 to the 18th of March 2018 and six artists have been invited to exhibit in it, including Christoph Keller.

 

Giant steps are what you take – the subtitle of the exhibition – is taken from Walking on the Moon the 1979 hit song by the British band The Police, in order to express the idea that the act of walking, or the taking of steps, seen as a philosophical exercise, is the inspiration for Conversation Piece | Part IV. In fact every artist can be metaphorically considered as a “walker” who explores different paths and walks along them. These paths represent the multiform theories and research each artist engages in, that are manifested through studies, artworks and exhibitions, and that take shape through several changes of state, which tend, as if in an alchemical process, towards the liberation of light, towards a revelation and towards a meaning. Each of these aspects constitutes a “step” that helps us to enter into the artist’s thought and poetic vision.
