Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid brings forward the closing date of the exhibition Emissaries by Ian Cheng
In line with the extraordinary measures taken by the Ministry of Health and the government of the Region of Madrid with regards the prevention of infection with coronavirus (COVID-19), Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid (FSRRM) is bringing forward the closing date of the exhibition Emissaries by Ian Cheng, at the headquarters of the Fundación Fernando de Castro in Madrid.
The show, initially scheduled to close on 21 March, closes its doors. In doing so, Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid wishes to respond to the current social and health situation by taking measures to collaborate, as far as possible, in avoiding a further deterioration of the epidemiological situation.
Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid kickstarts its programme of exhibitions and activities in Madrid
– The exhibition programme gets off to a start with the first solo show in Spain by the artist Ian Cheng, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist
– The foundation’s annual Young Curators Residency Programme, one of its foremost educational projects, is being held for the first time in Spain
Coinciding with ARCOmadrid, Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid (FSRRM) is introducing its programme of exhibitions and activities for Madrid with the first solo show in Spain by the US artist Ian Cheng –curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist– and the first iteration in Madrid of its Young Curators Residency Programme. The two projects endorse the commitment of the foundation and of its president, Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, with the art world in Spain. Similar to the approach taken by the foundation in Turin, here the exhibitions will include a team of mediators which will use a pedagogic approach to engage visitors with the artworks.
From the outset, the new FSRRM project wishes to underscore its signs of identity, namely, the promotion of artists and cultural mediation to contextualize and socialize contemporary art. Good proof of its intentions will be seen in its temporary exhibitions, like Emissaries by Ian Cheng or the show produced at the end of the first edition of the four-month residency for young curators in Madrid.
The commitment of the president of FSRRM with Madrid is rock solid. “We have already laid the foundations for our future work in Spain. Besides the initial programme, the FSRRM team is working on the presentation of emerging international artists and opening new opportunities for Spanish artists by bringing international curators to Madrid, two of our primary goals” said Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.
Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid was set up in 2017. “We are working alongside the new team at Madrid City Hall to locate alternative sites to Matadero Madrid”, explained Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. “We have been in discussions for several months now and we are confident that we will have the definitive location for our projects in Madrid very shortly”.
