NATIONAL ACADEMY SCHOOL PRESENTS

On the Relativity of Distance (and some of its

consequences): American and Italian Art, 1963-

2013

October 2 – November 7, 2013

Opening Reception

Thursday, October 3, 2013, 5:30 – 8:00pm

New York, NY (September 16, 2013) – On the Relativity of Distance features the

art of important American and Italian artists who created work between the mid-

1960s through the mid-to-late 1970s, including Ed Ruscha, Richard Pettibone,

Pino Pascali and Alighiero Boetti (see full listing below), as well as National

Academy students and faculty who were influenced or affected by the aesthetic

ideas of those periods.

The exhibition opens October 2 and will run through November 7, 2013 at the

National Academy School, located at 5 East 89th Street and Fifth Avenue. The

opening reception will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2013. The exhibition is

free and open to the public. For information, contact 212.996.1908.

The show has been curated by National Academy faculty member Filippo Fossati

and the director of the National Academy School, Maurizio Pellegrin. “The work

in this show is linked by the natural consequences and the influential impact which, as

is often the case in history, begins with a radical shift in language, in the collective

consciousness and, consequently, in the way that art is made wherein the process

becomes more relevant than the final result,” states Fossati.

“This exhibition is in part due to the aftermath of work made at the school through

a series of theoretical classes,” states Pellegrin. “Its aim is not to be an exhaustive

study of a specific period in art, but more of an ‘unconventional’ contribution that

portrays the changes in ideas and materials of art of our time.”

Featured are works by the following artists and National Academy faculty and

students:

Giovanni Anselmo - Ingo-Heinrich Appel - Robert Arneson - Cristina Avello - John

Baldessari - Alighiero Boetti - Alexander Calder - Vittoria Chierici - Christo - Pirro

Vulnerability, 2010

worn underwear

118” x 12” x 6”, (cm. 300 x 30 x 15)

Collection of the artist

Vulnerability is an invitation that I continue to extend to all the women I know to contribute their unwashed underwear. This is an on-going process of investigating shared womanhood, intimacy, body, shame, sexuality and beauty. I received envelopes from places as varied as Europe, Africa, Asia, America and Australia. The crux of the work lies in the process and dialogue generated in gathering the material, while the installation serves as the actual documentation.

Although my art references the feminist movement of the 60’s and 70’s, it differs in that it emphasizes the celebration and empowerment of womanhood.

In my work, I like to play with everyday, commonplace materials. I invite the viewer to re-consider their relationship to objects we all know well, an evolution of Duchamp’s concept of “Ready-mades”.
