The Italian Cultural Institute of Bogotá and the Mambo, the Museum of Modern Art in the Colombian capital, present ‘Full‘, the first institutional exhibition of the Italian artist Mariangela Levita organised in Latin America.
For almost thirty years, Levita has been investigating the limits of painting as an artistic medium: her research challenges the architecture of the places she works on, merging pictorial representation with the surrounding space.
The title of the exhibition, ‘Full’, refers to the collective feeling of saturation during the difficult period of the pandemic. The exhibition consists of a series of site-specific works installed inside and outside the Mambo; in particular, the work from which the exhibition takes its title is a sculpture made up of fifty reams of white sheets of paper located at the museum’s entrance.
The exhibition is curated by Eugenio Viola, curator of the Italian Pavilion at the 59th Venice Art Biennale and chief curator of Mambo.
