  • I returned recently to gam on the occasion of the exhibitions protoballa and bombs to the Museum and I was particularly impressed by the latter. the first is a small exhibition in the basement and is linked to the far more rich and interesting exhibition open until 27 February at the fondazione ferrero in alba. However, with free admission. While the Foundation you can delve into the work of this artist through his paintings and his drawings here more than anything it comes in contact with his youth and with the environment in which he lived. 4 information boards give notions about his youth and the characters he met and frequented. in two showcases exposes some objects that recall his artistic training, with particular reference to mentions that he received at the Academy of fine arts and the catalogs in which I cited the paintings with which he first exposures. There are also photos, a picture and a couple of advertising posters. on the walls of the Hall are also exposed 27 vintage photos that reflect views of Turin and of the poor neighborhood where he was born dancing, a couple of sketches and a dozen paintings of artists such as giacomo grosso, pelizza da volpedo etc. of balla exposes only a sketch and a painting the portrait of clelia ghedini marani, owned by gam as the rest of the material. you visit in about half an hour. is held until 27 February. well as robust and interesting is the exhibition dedicated to the reconstruction of the gam after the bombing immediately in 42. in a path that winds through 9 rooms you can see black and white images that show the new building absolutely innovative for that time, designed by two young architects, see objects and furnishings that were part of and admire paintings and sculptures that were acquired at that time in anticipation of future construction. in every room a simple informational Panel illustrates the above. a bit redundant smaller media, which does not add much to what you can see. superfluous even short biographies of some of the artists exposed, posed next to their works: carol rama, lucio fontana, carla accardi are some of those that you can read. are ten in all. in the Foyer are 17 photographs showing the building under construction and when finished, with the waiting room and the panels on which they were exposed. one of these has been reproduced to show what they looked like. the sitting area has been reconstructed here. in the space of passage that leads to the second room are in a showcase 10 catalogues of architecture and newspaper articles that reported the news of the opening of the new Museum. the second room is dedicated to the destruction of war: 30 photos show some statues partially destroyed and several buildings of Turin collapsed. the canvas of simon Magus has miraculously saved and revived rolled as 9 metres high! You can also see 3 statues of those who have partly or wholly saved. a surprise is also a beautiful painting by chagall!! in a video you can see two short videos about the Museum just opened and its inauguration attended by President gronchi. the next room exhibits about various items, from vases to telephones, from projects in letters and telegrams between the two architects and the Director of the Museum Avenue. they are also visible 3 armchairs, 3 sculptures, 2 photos showing where those sculptures were positioned and fifteen meters. follow a Hall with other 5 sculptures and photo showing their original location, one with a dozen other pictures including one very nice of carol rama and another with papers, projects, letters, vases, etc.-similar to the previous one, a model of the Museum, a dozen photos and a piece of furniture with an armchair and desk. the penultimate section 2 3 paintings and sculptures exhibits. one of these, by lucio fontana, had already been exposed recently in the Hall where currently there is an exhibition on the Bale. ends with 10 more experimental works, including paintings by manzoni and castellani. the visit takes about an hour and a half. is open until 14 May. I took advantage of the visit to also review the show on carol rama, held until 5 February at the basement. on display are 170 works ranging from 30 to 90 years or less, divided into 5 sections, each accompanied by a short informative panel simple and well done, providing essential information to understand what you are watching. in the first space are placed 4 abstract works, one of which is a tribute to carol rama by man ray. the first section that you come across is that entitled "organic" abstraction: 40 paintings made mostly with the technique of collage, in which carol rama did mostly use of glass eyes used in taxidermy and used plastic eyes for making dolls, but also springs, cannulas etc. the second, titled "bodies still well-defined and vulnerable" presents 28 paintings and a sculpture where were employed especially wheel bicycle inner tubes but also syringes and other materials of recovery. These works were created between the years 60 and 70 years. in a secluded, red walls, is the section "political Anatomy", where we expose 44 drawings made at a young age, in which rama expresses his strong sexuality and his penchant for the analysis of this issue. There is also a sculpture, shaped like a shoe. the fourth section is titled "mad cow am I", reference to the disease that terrorized the State in Europe a few years ago. There are 41 works exhibited: drawings and some collage still made with the rooms to air. Here you can also read a bizarre poem that gave her the poet sanguineti. the last section, with 11 paintings, belongs to the period when he joined the movement for abstract art in the years 50. at the bottom are shown two videos, lasting 5 and 47 minutes, in which carol rama same tells funny episodes of his life. around her unfurl memories of art critics and artists who have worked together and have appreciated his unconventional and unique way of making art. you visit in about an hour. I recommend visiting these exhibitions!

  • Beautiful museum of contemporary art in walking distance from the city center. I found Anselm Kiefer's "Einschusse" the surprise of the day. Impressive!
  • I went here to see the exhibition of impressionist painting from the Gare D' Orsay, Paris. This is a very good museum always offering interesting and well done exhibitions.
  • The permanent and the temporaries exhibitions are usually nice but I don't like the set-up of the permanent exhibition that is too much old fashioned for a modern gallery. The staircases between the floors are too low.
  • Many contemporary masterpieces! When I went it was very quite and almost empty.
  • It is amazing. And there are times when they exhibit with from famous artists.
