The installations of Dennis Oppenheim at Scolacium Archaeological Park and the MARCA Gallery of Catanzaro. An important exhibition devoted to one of the greatest exponents of Land Art.
The fourth Intersections exhibition, which has become a benchmark of ‘contamination’ between contemporary sculpture and archaeology, and a review of important designs and models from the 1960s to the present day, opens at the MARCA gallery in Catanzaro, curated by Alberto Fiz. On July 31, Intersections 4, a great exhibition devoted to the work of Dennis Oppenheim, one of the most important artists of the contemporary scene, opens in the magical setting of the Archaeological Park of Scolacium. The name of the town derives from Minervia Scolacium, the Roman colony established here in 123-122 BC. After the exhibitions held in the three previous years dedicated, in chronological order, to Tony Cragg, Jan Fabre and Mimmo Paladino, Antony Gormley and finally Mark Queen, Stephan Balkenhol and Wim Delvoye, Intersections 4 focuses on the brilliant American artist and includes some of his most important sculptures, for example: Electric Kisses, Splash Building and Safety Cones. There will also be many new environmental installations, both from his studio in New York and lent by other private European foundations.
