Bruna Esposito

Castello di Rivoli
Piazza Mafalda di Savoia
May 22–August 25, 2002

Curated by Marcella Beccaria

The Castello di Rivoli’s series devoted to emerging international figures picks up this season with site-specific work by Bruna Esposito, whose poetic “floating bench” was a critical hit when it was shown in the Italian pavilion at the 1999 Venice Biennale. Castello di Rivoli curator Marcella Beccaria has invited the Rome-based artist to interact with various spaces in the monumental structure, which dates from the eleventh century. The artist has often focused on issues of immigration and multiculturalism, so her exposition is particularly interesting, given the current political climate in Italy. The accompanying catalogue includes a selection of Esposito’s writings.
