OPEN AT NIGHT
— Elmgreen & Dragset, Maurizio Cattelan
December 16 — January 28, 2018
The director of the French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici is initiating a new project, in the form of temporary installations: “Thanks to curator Chiara Parisi we’re now launching the first of a series of light shows in the Villa gardens."

BEFORE AND AFTER
— Nate Lowman
December 15 — June 10, 2018
A new installation of paintings by New York–based artist Nate Lowman in Galleries 2 and 3 explores the timeless, palpable concept of desire using imagery and language drawn from American popular culture. Angels, poppies, hearts, pine-tree air fresheners, smiley faces, iconic celebrities, crosses, and news articles—all presented through the lens of desire and longing—tell part of the American story and confront viewers with the things of modern life that are often left unsaid and unexamined.
LIKE A MOTH TO A FLAME
— Carsten Höller, Paola Pivi
November 03 — January 14, 2017
The wide-ranging survey exhibition Like a Moth to a Flame, curated by Tom Eccles and Mark Rappolt with Liam Gillick, will officially inaugurate the Visual Arts Program at the renovated OGR in Turin. The show will explore the eternal compulsion to produce and to collect works of art, displaying “objects” ranging from a 2nd century BCE Egyptian sculpture to works created for the last Venice Biennale, drawn together from Turin’s most prominent collections of art and antiquities. The exhibition title derives from the answer to a riddle—In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni—attributed to Virgil, which is also the title of two artworks—one by French theorist Guy Debord and one by British artist Cerith Wyn Evans—that are included in the exhibition.
TAKE ME (I'M YOURS)
— Gianfranco Baruchello, Maurizio Cattelan, Carsten Höller, Lawrence Weiner
November 01 — January 14, 2018
“Take Me (I’m Yours)” is a group exhibition that rewrites the rulebook for experiencing a work of art. Visitors to the show are invited to flout convention and do all the things they aren’t normally allowed to do in a museum: the works can be touched, used, or changed; they can be consumed or worn; purchased and even taken free of charge, or carried off in exchange for some personal item. The exhibition is also a project that continues to evolve and be transformed.

The Trick Brain premieres some of the most recent acquisitions in the collection, highlighting similarities and contrasts among a group of multigenerational artists whose work reflects a fascination with the cacophonous, collaged experience of life in the digital age.
