This event has ended.
Diego Cirulli makes art focusing on historical, political and societal conflict, dealing with topics such as inequality, childhood, gender identity, the complexities of his country’s present, and its recent past. He also works as a stage producer in the scenography department of the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, which, along with Theatre National de l’Opera de Paris and Teatro alla Scala, is one of the three major opera companies in the world. He expands and crosses into new fields of work, such as the contemporary dance company Animales Danza Teatro, where he is the artistic advisor, designer and scenography producer, and Kalos, his own workshop, where he works both as a director and as an art/art history instructor.His highly praised work has received various awards, including First Prize for Painting, Salón ‘Palermo Viejo’ (2011).
This exhibition, Cirulli’s first in Japan, presents approximately 25 paintings on canvas, 10 drawings, two sculptures, and a three-dimensional audio-visual installation using virtual reality. As an experienced director of theater production and stage designer, Cirulli’s unique approach to the space and his inspiration are also in focus.
An opening reception with the artist is due to be held at 18:00 on Saturday, October 7th. In addition, a few events conducted by Cirulli himself are being planned. The details of these events will be posted on the gallery website.
