Piero Golia has been selected to participate in Lincoln PoPs, a contemporary art festival on P Street in downtown Lincoln. The festival will reflect on the voices and sounds of the world and how the auditory can create dialogue and community. Golia is creating a new performance piece titled EMOTIONAL, SPECTACULAR, BLOCKBUSTER! for the event.

Piero Golia
The Best Is Yet to Come

July 30–August 6, 2020

Sometimes you want to look back at what you did, and then you realize that you only care about the future. 
—Piero Golia

Gagosian is pleased to present recent work by Piero Golia online for galleryplatform.la. Golia transforms everyday objects and commonplace events into exceptional works of art that defy established conventions and build narratives. His diverse practice includes both artworks that take physical form, often at an architectural scale, and others that are immaterial or conceptual. For his most recent project, Golia hired a painter to illustrate a set of eight porcelain plates with images from his past artistic output. Each is unique in terms of content, size, and shape; together, they become a self-portrait of the places, objects, and interventions constituting his life and work. From his celebrated sculpture Untitled (My Gold Is Yours), exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2013, to a 2019 intervention involving the hiring of a landscape painter and an airplane, the set comprises a narrative retrospective of the artist’s career.
