AAR Gallery


Brightlight - Darklight (First Show)

Two paired solo shows feature four young Italian artists who reflect on the ambiguous nature of our perception of time by means of a metaphor of the two aspects of light: the dazzlement of a summer day and the darkness of night. The artists have been invited to transform the two rooms of the AAR Art Gallery into spaces that permit visitors to experience the show as a process of consciousness, engaging them in a reflection on the ability of art to provoke unexpected reactions and interpretations, thereby changing the banality of the everyday.

Milton Gendel: Portraits

The first complete retrospective dedicated to the career of American photographer and art critic Milton Gendel (b. 1918) will take place in two exhibitions in Rome: Milton Gendel: a Surreal Life at the Museo Carlo Bilotti (Aranciera di Villa Borghese) from 5 October 2011 to 8 January 2012, and Milton Gendel: Portraits at the American Academy in Rome from 19 October to 30 November 2011.
