Liam Gillick. Standing on the top of a building.

Standing on top of a building: 2008-2019 Film / Standing on Top of a Building: Films 2008-2019 is the first retrospective dedicated exclusively to video-film production by Liam Gillick (Aylesbury, UK, 1964), one of the most important contemporary artists at the international level, who in his practice explores the cultural, political, economic space-time of late capitalist society, claiming in it the reflection, awareness and still possible participation of the individual.

On display, curated by Alberto Salvadori and Andrea Viliani, the most important videos and films of the artist will be presented together for the first time, in a setting specifically designed to integrate the vision of the works into the architecture of the museum.
Each room will be marked by different but mutually satisfying interventions (posters, wall paintings, timed scanning of sounds with respect to images), which will outline a real cognitive journey, even before visiting. As if it were a real movie, the exhibition will be preceded by a trailer released on the museum’s canals.
