Andrea Bowers

Fondazione Furla and GAM - Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Milan
September 15 - December 18, 2022

Fondazione Furla and GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna of Milan announce the beginning of a long-term partnership in which the two institutions will work together on the upcoming events in the Furla Series cycle—annual exhibition projects in which contemporary art interfaces with the museum’s spaces and collection. This partnership, which consolidates the path first undertaken in 2021 with the Nairy Baghramian exhibition, confirms the desire to promote a form of public-private collaboration based on institutional synergies and shared planning.

 

The next event in this renewed collaboration will be a solo exhibition by Andrea Bowers curated by Bruna Roccasalva. The exhibition—the first to be dedicated to the American artist by an Italian institution—will offer the chance to celebrate feminism and bodily autonomy, amplifying issues from the present and past. 

 

Andrea Bowers is an American artist and activist whose research combines aesthetic practices and political engagement from a feminist perspective. Bowers employs a variety of media, from drawing to video to neon installations, bringing together socially relevant content with a formal approach connoted by its strong visual impact. Her work is a perfect example of how, through the aesthetic power of its language, art can convey socially relevant messages.

 

Furla Series 4. Andrea Bowers is part of the Furla Series, the project cycle that since 2017 has engaged Fondazione Furla in the creation of exhibitions in collaboration with major Italian art institutions, with an all-female program designed to valorize and showcase women’s fundamental contribution to contemporary culture.
