Mul­ti­fac­eted artist Lau­rie An­der­son will in­au­gu­rate the new mul­tidis­ci­plinary ex­hi­bi­tion space opened in Naples at the end of May. The space, Made in Clois­ter, is a pro­ject that be­gan with the lengthy, in-depth restora­tion of the for­merly aban­doned six­teenth cen­tury clois­ter of the church of Santa Ca­te­rina a Formiello. Made in Clois­ter opens with an im­por­tant ex­hi­bi­tion by Lau­rie An­der­son, a ver­sa­tile Amer­i­can mu­si­cian and painter who fa­mously sum­ma­rized her unique re­la­tion­ship with paint and art by say­ing: “paint­ing is like im­pro­vis­ing mu­sic. Mak­ing these big ges­tures feels like play­ing the vi­o­lin”. The ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes thirty works by the artist all linked to her re­search on themes such as life, loss and the the con­sis­tency and in­con­sis­tency of the body. Lau­rie An­der­son is con­sid­ered one of the most dar­ing and creative pi­o­neers in Amer­ica. To­gether with her hus­band Lou Reed she was among the first artists to sup­port the Made in Clois­ter pro­ject. The With­ness of the Body, pro­duced by Fon­dazione Tramontano Arte, is her first ex­hi­bi­tion in Naples. It is in­cluded in the pro­gram of the XXI Tri­en­nale In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion ‘De­sign after De­sign’ in Mi­lan and sup­ported by MADRE - Museo d’Arte Donnaregina. Made in Clois­ter is an ex­hi­bi­tion space for con­tem­po­rary art and ar­ti­sanal ac­tiv­i­ties, an in­no­va­tive model of a creative and cul­tural cen­tre and a place for meet­ings, ex­per­i­men­ta­tion and pro­duc­tion, where, artists and de­sign­ers can share space and work with Neapoli­tan mas­ter ar­ti­sans in a bid to com­bine the time-hon­oured tra­di­tions of Made in Italy work­man­ship with con­tem­po­rary cre­ations.
