For Immediate Release
Venice, June 1, 2023
Ragioni Tecniche is proud to announce its exhibition of new works by Ian Brill called “Currencies,” opening on 8 June 2023 and on view till 15 July. Ian Brill is an artist from New York and currently living in Pittsburgh who creates multi-sensory environments and installations using light and sound. For Ragioni Tecniche Mr. Brill created a new installation as well as a series of screen prints based on his sculptures.
The opening reception will take place on Thursday June 8, 2023 at 6PM and is open to the public.
Currencies will also be Mr. Brill’s first exhibition in Italy. The works on view were created exclusively for the gallery and will demonstrate a new pathway that connects the artist’s installations and phenomenological sculptures with his elegant two-dimensional representations of his work. The prints were created individually and by the artist’s own hand using a rich spectrum of chromatic relationships that mirror the varying degrees of warm and cool illuminations in Brill’s sculptures.
Through the creation of interactive, performative and multi-sensorial environments, Ian Brill considers boundaries of becoming (versus being) and our immersive relationship with technology. His installations, performances and writing have been presented internationally, at conferences, festivals museums and galleries.
Brill has exhibited widely across North America and Europe with a recent exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego. Currently, he teaches at Penn State University.
Ragioni Tecniche is a contemporary art gallery located in Camp San Beneto in Venice’s San Marco district.
Gallery Director and Founder George Magalios comments on the exhibition of works by Ian Brill:
I have been a fan of Ian Brill’s work since we first met in 2000. Ian is one of those rare talents with a natural feel for light, sound and their aesthetic interplay. We are thrilled to show his latest work and bring it to our Venetian and Italian audiences. As his Italian debut we are also honored to be representing Ian Brill with this new body of work that coincides with the 2023 Bienal d’architettura in Venice.
