The Independent opens 2018 with the MoRE group, the digital museum that collects, preserves and exhibits on line unrealised projects by 20th- and 21st-century artists. It also won i8, namely the initiative of the ArtVerona fair dedicated to independent spaces. For this MAXXI event, MoRE presents WunderMoRE, a project curated by Ilaria Bignotti, Elisabetta Modena, Valentina Rossi, Marco Scotti and Anna Zinelli that showcases the museum’s archive by use of a collection of images.
The wall of the museum turns into an “exhibition room” based upon a perceptive disorientation caused by the indiscriminate accumulation of objects of different nature, which are only apparently exhibited following no logical or taxonomical principle. Every image comes with a brief explanation of the artist’s work and a QR code to trace the project in the MoRE digital archive. The materials will be exhibited in two different set-ups which will follow one another from March to July.
MoRE, which is a flowing, scientific, mobile container that is constantly under definition and enlargement, enhances and studies the preserved projects by use of research, articles, seminars and publications, making full use of the web’s potential and interacting with different institutions and entities also by carrying out experimental and site-specific exhibition projects and always promoting an active exchange.
