Panorama L’Aquila, curated by Cristiana Perrella, brings together works by more than sixty-two international artists presented by different galleries whose focuses range from the fourteenth century to contemporary. The exhibition takes place in twenty venues across L’Aquila—the provincial capital of the Abruzzo region, known for its green national parks and towns located on dramatic cliff faces—including in historical buildings, palaces, courtyards, and public spaces, as well as museums and other institutions. This is the third in a series of Panorama exhibitions organized by ITALICS, a consortium of art galleries active in Italy cofounded by Lorenzo Fiaschi and Pepi Marchetti Franchi that work together, both on- and offline, to highlight Italy’s extraordinary cultural and artistic heritage. Work by Tatiana Trouvé is included, exhibited in the Palazzo Rivera.

The Voice of Things
Highlights of the Centre Pompidou Collection, Volume II

July 27, 2021–February 5, 2023
West Bund Museum, Shanghai
www.westbund.com

The title of this exhibition is taken from the iconic collection of prose poems published in 1942 by French poet and resistance fighter Francis Ponge (1899–1988). In it, he describes the beauty of banality and opens up a new way of looking at everyday objects and bringing them to life. Organized as part of a five-year partnership with the Centre Pompidou, Paris, this exhibition brings together emblematic artworks from the Centre Pompidou’s collection, ranging from the early twentieth-century avant-garde to contemporary works that question our globalized world. Work by Man Ray, Pablo Picasso, and Tatiana Trouvé is included.

June 8–August 22, 2022
Centre Pompidou, Paris
www.centrepompidou.fr

Invited to take over an eight-hundred-square-meter gallery at the Centre Pompidou, Tatiana Trouvé employs a variety of materials to re-create its floor. On this reconfigured surface she presents a group of drawings, some previously unseen and some made expressly for the exhibition, whose title translates to The Great Atlas of Disorientation. A selection of sculptures and constructed elements complete this fantastical landscape where reality engages in infinite exchanges with its doubles.

Bureau d’Activités Implicites

October 5, 2021–January 9, 2022
Musée d’art moderne et contemporain, Geneva
www.mamco.ch

At the start of Tatiana Trouvé’s artistic career, after amassing a large number of cover letters, unsuccessful grant applications, and other written material, she began to incorporate these rejections and ephemera from unrealized projects into sculptures, or “modules,” as she calls them. She later brought together the various modules—whose common thread is the notion of time and memory—as the Bureau d’Activités Implicites (1997–), which translates to Bureau of Implicit Activities. On display in this exhibition are two modules containing fragments of letters written but unsent, unfinished projects, and copies of her own drawings that Trouvé painstakingly made.
