Lawrence Carroll. Ghost House

MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna
December 12, 2014 - April 6, 2015

Lawrence Carroll, one of the main exponents of contemporary painting, will be featured at MAMbo – Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna in an exhibition entitled Ghost House, which opens to the public on 12 December 2014. The show traces Carroll’s artistic evolution over more than 30 years through around 60 works produced between the mid-1980s and the present, many of which have never been exhibited before and some realized expressly for the occasion. Particularly significant is the contiguity with the Museo Morandi, the largest public collection of the works of Giorgio Morandi, one of Carroll’s stated models and great master of 20th century painting.

Ghost House is installed in the temporary exhibition galleries where, rather than following chronological criteria, it creates environments that the artist describes as “built on memory”, in which works from different periods are placed in dialogue with one another and with the museum context in the conviction that meaning can be found not only in the individual works but in their relationships, considered collectively and through time, like the narrative overlappings of a story.
