“Originally launched as a digital initiative, Homemade moves into Magazzino’s galleries as a special exhibition timed to the public reopening of the museum’s facility on July 10. The exhibition includes more than 30 paintings, works on paper, and installations created by eight New York-based, Italian artists—Alessandro Teoldi, Andrea Mastrovito, Beatrice Scaccia, Danilo Correale, Davide Balliano, Francesco Simeti, Luisa Rabbia, and Maria D. Rapicavoli—during the period of nationwide quarantine. Curated by Director Vittorio Calabrese with Chiara Mannarino, Homemade showcases the creative output of these artists working at home, using new methods and materials, and features additional works to provide an augmented understanding of creative practices and greater bodies of work. Marking a culmination, this in-person exhibition acts as a bridge between the previous period of self-isolation to our current one, and serves as a testament to the power and resilience of art, especially, in its ability to connect us all.” — Magazzino
