Artist: Guido Ignatti
Guido Ignatti: Setup
July 1, 2016 – September 11, 2016
Museum of Contemporary Art Denver
Trained as a sculptor and set designer, Guido Ignatti uses simple materials to stage situations that transform everyday urban life. Ignatti’s four installations on view at MCA Denver will form a trajectory, beginning with an intimate gallery of abstract paintings, moving through an arrangement of modified plants, and culminating with a room-sized sculpture and a mural that combines poetry and political graffiti.
By setting up environments that oscillate between the ordinary and the enigmatic, he invites reflection on art’s pleasures and pitfalls – on what art can offer and withhold. Guido Ignatti: Setup is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in the US.
