Exhibition extended until Sunday, 26th February 2017 / 5th March 2017

From 29 September 2016 to 19 February 2017 Chiostro del Bramante in Rome hosts LOVE. Contemporary art meets amour, curated by Danilo Eccher.

Chiostro del Bramante is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an exhibition of international significance.

It has been years since Rome’s cultural landscape witnessed anything like this not-to-be-missed event, which endeavours to bring the city up to the level of the most respected international exhibition venues. For the first time, some of the most important contemporary artists will be shown together, including Yayoi Kusama, Tom Wesselmann, Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, Gilbert & George, Francesco Vezzoli, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Francesco Clemente and Joana Vasconcelos, with artworks that speak in highly experiential languages (Kusama’s All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins is one of the most instagrammed in the world), created to engage visitors with different kinds of stimuli.

Art meets love.

The exhibition aims to tackle an emotion that is universally recognized and constantly studied and represented – Love – showing its various facets and its infinite manifestations: love that is happy, that is longed-for, misunderstood, hated, ambiguous, transgressive, or childish, love that unfolds along an unconventional exhibition route featuring visual and sensory input.

Love goes beyond the concept of the museum.

In this exhibition, it’s the visitors who really tell the story, as they reappropriate the display spaces and become consumers and communicators at the same time, being freely allowed to photograph all the works on display (official hashtag: #chiostrolove). The experience of the museum is an experience of 360° sensory involvement, fully embracing the concept of the continuously evolving ‘open access’ museum.

In addition, in connection with DART Chiostro del Bramante’s scientific project, visitors can experience a truly unusual active guide by selecting, for the first time, from among 5 “audio partners”: John, Coco, Amy, David and Lilly will be the special travel companions on this journey. Depending on the type of experience each visitor would like to embark on, they will describe the works on display and help visitors appreciate the emotions they hold. The Audio Guides were created by Zeranta Edutainment srl, a company that specializes in education and entertainment.

Featured artists: Vanessa Beecroft, Francesco Clemente, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Robert Indiana, Ragnar Kjartansson, Yayoi Kusama, Mark Manders, Ursula Mayer, Tracey Moffatt, Marc Quinn, Joana Vasconcelos, Francesco Vezzoli, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann.

The exhibition LOVE. Contemporary art meets amour is produced and organized by Dart – Chiostro del Bramante in collaboration with Arthemisia Group and is

The exhibition is sponsored by JTI and Generali Italia.

The catalogue is published by Skira.
