Over the summer, GAMeC will host the first exhibition in an Italian institution by the London-based artist Luke Willis Thompson (Auckland, 1988).
Through film, performance, sculpture and installation, Thompson’s practice investigates witnessing as a means of social and political emancipation. In doing so, Thompson seeks to reconfigure visibility around the systems of power and the structures of inequality that are enacted upon certain bodies.
Most recently, Thompson was shortlisted for the 2018 Turner Prize, where the artist presented a trilogy of films. For his solo show at GAMeC, curated by Edoardo Bonaspetti as Guest Curator of the first edition of a new exhibition initiative promoted as part of the Premio Lorenzo Bonaldi per l’Arte – EnterPrize, the artist will exhibit a body of work conceived specifically for the museum’s Spazio Zero.
