Before the Cockerel Crows
Works from Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Collection
5 June – 1 August 2021
Curators' talk and book launch: 5 June 2021 5pm (CEST)
Palazzo Re Rebaudengo, Guarene and other locations (Piedmont)
Liam Gillick has co-curated Before the Cockerel Crows, Works from Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Collection, with Tom Eccles and Mark Rappolt. Staged as a belated celebration for the 25th anniversary of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, the exhibition reflects the transformation from a private collection to a foundation open to the public through a selection of significant works by international artists from the Foundation's collection. These themes were also present in the exhibition Like a Moth to the Flame (held in 2017 at the Foundation's headquarters in Turin and, jointly, at OGR in the same city, again curated by the team consisting of Gillick, Eccles, and Rappolt), of which the present exhibition is both a coda and a reinterpretation. The exhibition expands beyond the walls of the Fondazione to encompass three churches, a private chapel and a former prison located within the town, and is complemented by the opening of the Fondazione’s new outdoor sculpture site located on the nearby San Licerio hill.
The opening events of the exhibition will also feature the book launch for Like a Moth to a Flame, an artist-designed book by Liam Gillick including texts by Anselm Franke and Hito Steyerl.
