Aldo Tambellini. Black Matters

11.03.2017 to 06.08.2017

»Black Matters« is the first full solo exhibition of Italian-American artist, Aldo Tambellini, who is one of the pioneers of intermedia art and experimental avant-garde of the 1960s and 1970s.

Aldo Tambellini (born 1930 in Syracuse, NY, USA) lives and works in Cambridge. Together with Otto Piene, he founded the »Black Gate Theatre« in 1967, which was the first »Electro-Media« theatre of New York. Between 1976 and 1984, he was a fellow at the legendary Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) at the MIT in Cambridge.

The exhibition »Black Matters« takes a journey through Tambellini’s most prolific, highly charged and diversified period (1960–1980). The exhibition explores his, paintings, and multimedia practice that includes: Lumagram (hand-painted slides), video, videogram, painting, photography, installation, film works, presenting a selection of his most recent multimedia works that have been shown at Centre Pompidou (2012), Tate Modern (2012), MoMA New York (2013), 56. Biennale di Venezia (2015). The corpus of works, presented at ZKM for the first major solo exhibition of the artist, is conceived as a manifesto for an organic connection among painting, sculpture, photography, moving image installation, kinetic art and performance.
