CLAUDIO GOBBI AN ATLAS OF PERSISTENCE | Photographic exhibition | 3 December 2021 - 27 February 2022


Ca’ Pesaro

Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna – Museo d’Arte Orientale

The Direzione regionale Musei Veneto and the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione (ICCD) of the Ministry of Culture (MiC), together with the Galleria Internazionale d'Arte Moderna Ca' Pesaro present the photographic exhibition Claudio Gobbi. An Atlas of Persistence, a cura di Francesca Fabiani.

The exhibition features two photographic projects, the first one on the iconography of 20th-century theatre interiors throughout Europe, tracing a geography of the continent with more than more than 25 countries; the second one on the typological immutability of Armenian churches, scattered even outside their historical territories, which gives a visual encyclopaedia, an album of the ever-equal.

As Gobbi explains: One of the central themes of my work is the search for recurring characteristics that can be considered as defining elements of a certain type of culture.

The exhibition is the first event in a programme of events and exhibitions that will be showcased in various Venetian cultural venues.

Claudio Gobbi (Ancona, Italy, 1971) studied photography at the Bauer Institute in Milan, specialising under the guidance of Gabriele Basilico. His projects - characterised by a continuous work in progress His projects address issues of cultural identity and borders, transnationality, the East-West encounter, and the relationship between art, architecture and and cultural anthropology, approached from their own context: Europe.

He has received many awards.

Among the various publications the monograph Arménie Ville published in 2016 by Hatje Cantz.
