Anna Schwartz Gallery will present an exhibition featuring new works by celebrated Australian artist and musician Marco Fusinato. Marco Fusinato, who has been selected to represent Australia at next year’s 59th Venice Biennale, will unveil his latest series of works for the exhibition titled Experimental Hell (Atmosphæram). The exhibition will feature large scale silk screen works on raw aluminium a newly recorded album, and a noise performance, to bring the three primary areas of Fusinato’s practice into a single project.
As a musician Fusina to explores the idea of noise as music, using the electric guitar and mass amplification to improvise intricate, wide ranging and physically affecting frequencies often described as a monumental aural sculpture.
Anna Schwartz, Founder of Anna Schwartz Gallery, said: “Marco Fusinato has been exhibiting with the Gallery for the past 15 years, and for each exhibition he pushes his practice into new and engaging spaces. For Experimental Hell (Atmosphæram), Marco combines his new visual and sound works to create a multi sensory experience for audiences, as well as providing a glimpse into what they might experience at next year’s Venice Biennale. Known for his practice encompassing installation, photographic reproduction, performance and recording, his overall aesthetic project combines allegorical appropriation with an interest in the intensity of a gesture or event.
Fusinato's ongoing series of durational noise-guitar performances Spectral Arrows – described as a monumental aural sculpture – was first performed at The Glasgow International Arts Festival (2012) and has since been performed in museums and theatres worldwide. He also performs regularly in the experimental music sphere, primarily as a solo artist.
Fusinato’s work is represented in important public and corporate collections including, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth; Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney; Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne; Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart; and Chartwell Collection, New Zealand.
Co-organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, Julie Mehretu is a midcareer survey that will unite more than seventy paintings and works on paper dating from 1996 to the present, reflecting the breadth of Mehretu’s multilayered practice.
