LGDR Paris is pleased to announce Carolrama Coralarma Claromara Arolcarma Coralroma
Ormalacra Carmarola, the first exhibition dedicated to the two predominant decades in the artist's career. This presentation follows the 2015 solo exhibition La Passion selon Carol Rama, curated by Anne Dressen at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Choosing to narrow the focus of this latest seminal study of Rama in France, LGDR's exhibition highlights the 1960s and 1970s. Carol Rama, 1960-79 features historic works never before exhibited, as well as materials on loan from the artist's extraordinary home and studio in Turin-including samples of elements used in the works on view and personal documents shedding light on his artistic and social milieu.
Carol Rama, 1960-79 is curated by Mark Godfrey, a London-based art historian and independent curator. The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication featuring a commissioned text by contemporary Portuguese artist Leonor Antunes, as well as a conversation between Godfrey, Jo Applin, Professor of Art History at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, and Maria Cristina Mundici, Director of the Archivio Carol Rama in Turin. This exhibition at LGDR Paris precedes Rama's presence at the 59th Venice Biennale, The Milk of Dreams, curated by Cecilia Alemani, which opens in April 2022.
