Palazzo Re Rebaudengo in Guarene is hosting an exhibition, che sarà sarà, organised by the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. It presents the works of twenty artists active in Italy, embracing a wide range of artistic expressions, from sculpture to installation, from painting to video. The exhibition has been curated by Stefano Collicelli Cagol, in collaboration with Michele Bertolino, and is part of the projects of Comitato Fondazioni Arte Contemporanea

It will be part of a broader context, coinciding with the Turin leg of the Bel Paese. Promoting Italian Art Around the World. This initiative, born from the synergy between the Comitato and Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea del Ministero della Cultura, aims to enhance and spread Italian art internationally. The exhibition is an integral part of SNODI’s cultural landscape.

In che sarà sarà, the artists involved propose visions that challenge and reshape the concept of personal and collective identity. Through their works, they delineate constantly expanding bodies and create alternative landscapes, imagining ever-changing times. The very title of the exhibition, a play on words between the songs Che sarà by Ricchi e Poveri and Que sera sera by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston, evokes an indefinite future, perhaps already happened or yet to be written, inviting the visitor to embrace uncertainty, to let go of the self and open up to unexplored possibilities.

Palazzo Re Rebaudengo also presents a tribute to Gianfranco Baruchello, Marisa and Mario Merz and Michelangelo Pistoletto. Thus Gianfranco Baruchello’s work Murmur (2015) is present; an openable outline of a head that encloses within it a microcosm of signs, drawings and words, a representation of thought through the free association of image and text. This approach is also visible in the other four works exhibited, made in India ink on cardboard and plexiglass, entitled Connect/Disconnect (Reverie, Question, Space, Movement)(2015).
