Giorgio Andreotta Calò
Artist

Born in Venice in 1979, Giorgio Andreotta Calò lives between Amsterdam and Venice. He studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia (1999-2005) and continued his studies at the KunstHochSchule Berlin (2003-2004). From 2001 to 2003, and also in 2007, he was assistant to Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. He has been the artist in residence at the Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam (2009-2011).

His solo exhibitions include: Oude Kerk, Amsterdam (2018); Depart Foundation, Los Angeles (2016); Institut Culturel Italien, Paris (2014); SMART Project Space, Amsterdam (2012); and Galleria Civica, Trento, Italy (2009), among others.

His work was presented at the 57th Venice Biennale (2017), curated by Cecilia Alemani and at the 54th Venice Biennale (2011), curated by Bice Curiger.

Among the recent group shows: Pirelli HangarPicocca, Milan (2017); 16th Quadriennale d’Arte, Rome (2016); High Line, New York (2016); and Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2014). He won the Premio New York (2014), promoted by the Italian Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Premio Italia for contemporary art (2012), promoted by the MAXXI Museum in Rome.

Giorgio Andreotta Calò’s research revolves around an intense crossover of dimensions developed through a process of withdrawing fragments from reality and the re-appropriation of architecture, landscape and his own history. Calò creates works that cross boundaries between sculpture, actions and direct architectural intervention. Therefore, the artwork presented to the public is never a specially made object or simply the result of a project, but rather a process of time immersed in a physical matter and space, given its shape from both the environment with which it interacts and the energies unleashed within it.

  • Marguerite Humeau: Orisons
    Jul 29, 2023 – Jun 30, 2025
    Black Cube
    Hooper, USA
    Marguerite Humeau’s Orisons is a subtle, 160-acre earthwork that transforms an unfarmable plot of land in Colorado’s San Luis Valley into a place of reverence, honoring its expansive history, existing ecosystem, and imaginable futures. The work consists of the land in its entirety, as well as a series of eighty-four kinetic and interactive sculptures that invoke the land’s histories and vast network of interrelations. (more…)
  • Anu Põder: Space for My Body
    Jan 3 – Jun 30, 2024
    Muzeum Susch
    Susch, Switzerland
    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal. Yet, because it was somehow out of sync with the then established art landscape in Estonia, it has been overlooked for many years. Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)
  • Luiz Roque: Estufa
    Jul 6 – Oct 20, 2024
    KW Institute for Contemporary Art
    Berlin, Germany
    Estufa is the first mid-career survey of the artist Luiz Roque (b. 1979, BR). Roque’s practice inhabits a space between expanded cinema, visual art, and critical theory. His artistic methodology fuses an interest in the legacies of modernism, pop culture, queer (bio-)politics, and science fiction. This anachronistic approach culminates in timeless montages and environments while often disclosing the urgency of pressing socio-political issues of specific communities and subcultures. (more…)
