Marco Tamburro. Gemelli

By (author) Luca Beatrice


  • Paintings with iconographic references to the urban fabric and the frenzied speed of life today
  • Rediscovery of traditional painting techniques and productive interaction between different artistic languages
  • Catalog of the monographic exhibition Twins of Marco Tamburro organised by Maxxi museum of Rome, opening 19 October 2023   
Full Description

Published on the occasion of the monographic exhibition at the Corner of the MAXXI, this 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.

Text in English and Italian.
