Exhibition curated by Ilaria Bonacossa with Valentina Lacinio
The inaugural exhibition of the season will be a solo show by Trevor Paglen. The artist has been working on nonfunctional satellites that are both sculptural and evocative of our relationship with Space and the politics that govern its colonization. Developed in collaboration with aerospace engineers, the Satellites are Space-worthy sculptures designed as small, lightweight devices that expand to become large, highly reflective structures. The exhibition in OGR becomes an answer to the discussions on Space investigation questioning the relationship between contemporary art and science, to re-envision the cosmos as a place of possibility.
