Opening: September 15, 2022

Marie Matusz’s (b. 1994) solo exhibition is titled Fall (b. 1994). For this occasion, the artist exhibits brand-new pieces that explore ideas of rhythm, repetition, composition, and distortion. These pieces include sculpture, video, and a room-sized installation. Artist Marie Matusz uses industrial materials, sound, and installations in her work. She is intrigued by the idea of personal and social consciousness in modern culture. The Swiss Art Award was given to Marie Matusz in 2021.

Deborah-Joyce Holman
Solo show

Archivio Storico, Via Maqueda 157, Palermo
Opening: October 5, 2022

At the Archivio Storico in Palermo, Istituto Svizzero is hosting a Deborah-Joyce Holman (born 1991) show. The artist primarily uses text as a creative tool when working with film, installations, and sculpture.

The artist creates a brand-new video piece for the Palermo exhibition that addresses issues with language, geography, and identity.

L’arcobaleno riposa sulla strada—The rainbow rests on the road
Group show with Pascale Birchler, Miriam Laura Leonardi, Hunter Longe, Lou Masduraud, Luzie Meyer, Meret Oppenheim, and Ser Serpas
October 29, 2022–February 12, 2023
Istituto Svizzero, Via Ludovisi 48, Rome
Opening: October 28, 2022

Meret Oppenheim, one of the most unorthodox painters of the 20th century, is featured in a selection of works in conversation with artists from a younger age, including Pascale Birchler, Miriam Laura Leonardi, Hunter Longe, Lou Masduraud, Luzie Meyer, and Ser Serpas. Through the eyes of up-and-coming contemporary artists, the exhibition generates a “re-reading” of the issues dear to Meret Oppenheim by examining themes like the subconscious, the dream, the surreal, and the role of the “female artist.”

The Istituto Svizzero serves as an interdisciplinary hub that connects creative and academic study. It makes connections possible between Switzerland and Italy as well as globally from Rome, Milan, or Palermo. Emerging artists and researchers who want to further art, science, and innovation can apply for residency at Istituto Svizzero. The Institute releases a public program each year with the goal of highlighting innovative activities, projects, and research techniques. Istituto Svizzero aims to actively contribute to the worldwide conversation on the arts and society by imagining new directions and going across disciplinary borders.
