RENATO LEOTTA EXHIBITION OPENING

Casa Italiana Zerilli - Marimò

Renato Leotta

April 30 - June 12, 2019
Mondays-Fridays 10-6

Magazzino Italian Art Foundation (2700 U.S. 9, Cold Spring, NY)
NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò (24 West 12th Street, New York, NY)

Curated by Vittorio Calabrese, Director, Magazzino Italian Art Foundation

Magazzino Italian Art Foundation and Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò at New York University co-present a solo exhibition and new site-specific work by Renato Leotta. Coming directly from the American Academy in Rome, where he is currently the Italian Fellow in Visual Arts investigating the space between earth and sky, Leotta has taken up residence in Cold Spring and continued his research on the relationship between the built and natural environment across three locations in New York state: the Hudson Valley, the shores of Long Island, and New York City. Opening on April 30, 2019, Leotta will premiere a new installation that responds to the grounds surrounding Magazzino Italian Art Foundation, in conjunction with a presentation of new and recent sculptures, and multimedia works on view at Casa Italiana in New York City. Renato Leotta marks the third collaboration between Casa Italiana and Magazzino and expands on the two institutions’ mutual commitment to exhibiting the work of contemporary Italian artists in the United States.

The two-part exhibition, Renato Leotta, will feature new works that draw inspiration from the coastlines of Long Island, Sicily and Portugal, as well as the landscape of Cold Spring and the Hudson River. Leotta utilizes forces of nature, including gravity, the moon, the ocean and other bodies of water, as partners to create artworks. Working across media, including sculpture, photography, textile and film, Leotta seeks to illuminate how the sea, sky and land are interconnected and to forge new connections between real and ideal environments, that exist both physically and only in the imagination of the spectator.

Renato Leotta (b. 1982, Turin) lives and works between Acireale and Turin. In addition to his recent exhibition Eine Sandsammlung at the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen (2018) and site-specific commission at Manifesta in Palazzo Butera in Palermo Sicily (2018), Leotta has had solo exhibitions in Madragoa, Lisbon (2017); Galleria Fonti, Naples (2015); Cripta747, Torino (2014). Select group exhibitions include MAC, Sao Paulo; Museo Madre, Napoli; Le Magasin, Grenoble; NAK, Aachen; Palazzo Fortuny, Venice (2017); Quadriennale di Roma, Rome (2016); Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels (2015). Leotta is a co-founder of CRIPTA747 in Torino.
