  Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli | Tony Oursler vs Gustavo Rol


3 November 2017 - 25 February 2018
Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli | Turin, ITALY

Continuing its research on the topic of collecting, the Pinacoteca Agnelli presents an ideal collection including works by Tony Oursler (b. New York, 1957), the "father of video sculpture," and a selection of objects belonging to his large collection of occult-related materials. These are juxtaposed with works by painter and psychic Gustavo Rol (b. Turin, 1903-1994) from Turin's city collections.

Oursler is one of the most innovative artists to use video as an expressive means. On this occasion, he will also display a new series of works, the Ex Voto, inspired by his visit to the Chiesa della Consolata in Turin.

An art lover and painter himself, Gustavo Rol left jobs as a journalist and bank clerk to pursue his greatest passion: the occult. A close friend of Federico Fellini and a confidant of numerous celebrities, he encouraged people "to look beyond appearances and to stimulate their intelligent spirits."
