Published on the occasion of the monographic exhibition at the Corner of the MAXXI, the catalog is illustrated with the earlier paintings and never-before-seen large works created especially for the museum, a dialogue between nine sets of twins and one work in which it is possible to recognize an expressive direction filtered through the lens of abstraction. In addition to the essay by the curator, the volume includes an interview with the artist, a critical text by Aurelio Picca and a bio-bibliography. In short, the volume provides a complete portrait of Marco Tamburro: from the references to classical cinema, to the theater and to contemporary photography, to his personal history and paintings, which combine aspects of his own life with imaginary events. His main source of inspiration is the city of Rome, consumed and crisscrossed by an infinity of trajectories, overlaid by buildings and skyscrapers.
Marco Tamburro is a painter and sculptor, originally from Perugia. He has exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Macro Roma, Castel dell’ovo (Naples), Palazzo Penna (Perugia), Palazzo Medici (Florence), Palazzo Frisacco (Udine). He is known on the foreign market through his exhibitions in Miami, New York, San Paolo, China, Munich, London and Berlin.
