FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — In April, Durden and Ray will present “Fragments,” a group show highlighting Italian artists and curated by Camilla Boemio of Rome, who has curated several exhibitions at the Venice Biennale.


In 2013, Boemio was deputy curator of "Portable Nation," in the Maldives Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition La Biennale of Venice. In 2016, she was the curator of “Diminished Capacity,” the first Nigerian Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale.


The exhibition Boemio is curating at Durden and Ray provides a context for comparison, dialogue and reflection about this generation’s art in Italy in relation to cultural identity: migration, work, crisis, sacredness, spirituality, the city, and geopolitics. It is a time of change — and the making of “Fragments” is part of this reality — but in a consciousness altered by links with the past and signs of the future.


In the exhibition’s installations, drawings, photographs and design practices, artists create a space of liquidity and a repertoire of perceptions. The aesthetic and philosophical positions seem to be constantly moving. At the same time, they develop a precise vocabulary in which morphological ambiguities enhance the cognitive will: The minimal signs tell the dichotomy of semantic overlap.


The exhibition will include the beginnings of a book published by Studio Permanente with text by Boemio. Like a drawing, the publication traces the outline, the folds and the features of the line between the artists’ practices in Italy and in California.


The exhibition is held in collaboration with AAC Platform, a nonprofit art organization based in Rome that represents contemporary artists locally, regionally and internationally.
