    A MATTER OF LAND AND WATER. The Lia Rumma Gallery was founded in Naples in 1971 and has played a major role in discovering new artistic trends such as Arte Povera, Minimal Art, Land Art and Conceptual Art, and exhibiting emerging and prominent artists such as Joseph Kosuth, Haim Steinbach, Gino De Dominicis, Reinhard Mucha, Alberto Burri, Thomas Ruff, Anselm Kiefer, William Kentridge and Marina Abramovic. When the international art show MiArt was recently held in Milan, the “Grado Zero” collective was inaugurated at the Lia Rumma Gallery in Via Stilicone, while the “Quaestio de Aqua et Terra” (“A Matter of Land and Water”) exhibition, based on the discussion held by Dante in 1320 at the Sant’Elena church in Verona, is being held at Rocca d’Angera castle on Lake Maggiore.

    Interview with Michal Rovner – Leaving a Permanent Mark

    I met with Michal Rovner at Pace Gallery to see the opening of “Evolution” which is the gallery’s first exhibition of Rovner’s work in Geneva.  The show coincides with the opening of Rovner’s “Dislocation” show at Espace Muraille, also in Geneva, which we went to together afterwards.  Rovner was born in 1957 in Israel, and had a solo show of her video work at the Whitney Museum of America Art in 2002.  She then represented Israel at the Venice Biennale in 2003.  She has been represented by Pace Gallery since 2003.  Rovner is currently working on installations for the public realm at the new Canary Wharf Crossrail station in London.
