it’s late and the wind carries a faint sound as it moves through the trees. it could be anything. the jingling of little bells perhaps, or the tiny flickering out of tiny lives. i stroll down the side walk and close my eyes and open them and wait for my mind to go perfectly blank. like a room no one has ever entered, a room without doors or windows. a place where nothing happens., 1999 (detail)

Ugo Rondinone’s The Night of Lead to be presented at MUSAC, the artist’s only museum exhibition this year Curator: Agustín Pérez Rubio Coordination: Eneas Bernal The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León presents Ugo Rondinone’s solo debut in Spain.

 

The Night of Lead, curated by Agustín Pérez Rubio, spearheads the calendar of events for 2009. The show will cover 2500 m2, half of the space normally allotted to temporary exhibitions. Ugo Rondinone employs a wide range of registers, accumulated during his last 20 years’ working experience. The result is a complex and melancholic artistic experience, a dreamscape that reflects Rondinone’s fascination with rituals, dreams, poetry and the everyday of the human condition.
