Every morning in the sky on the coast between Ladispoli and Anzio

All I do is make things and present them. Art presents a reality. Art doesn’t present a metaphor. The conversation with society is not: what is the function of art?  The conversation with society is: what do people do with this stuff that other people make? What do people do with the idea that there are human beings making things and placing them in the world and that those things are just means for other people to understand their relationship to the world?
Lawrence Weiner

For the summer of 2020 MACRO presents TRACCE / TRACES, an exhibition by Lawrence Weiner produced by the museum with the aim of getting out of conventional spaces and looking to the sky, thanks to a series of aerial banners along the coast, from Ladispoli to Anzio.

The exhibition, devised by Luca Lo Pinto, links back to the book of the same title produced in 1970 for Galleria Sperone, edited by Germano Celant, which focused on translation. The project envisioned by Weiner shortly after Celant’s death is also a tribute to the late Italian curator.

Exactly fifty years after the release of the publication, the artist has selected ten of the fifty works included in the book. They all consist of a single word, corresponding to the past participle of a verb that suggests an action that could have happened in the past, or could be expected for the future. The verbs, isolated and removed from any syntactic context, lend themselves to open interpretation.

From 16 to 25 August, along the coastline most popular with Romans, the exhibition will present a different work each day. Though in the past there have been individual works made with airplane condensation trails (Marinus Boezem, Maurizio Nannucci and Bruce Nauman), TRACCE / TRACES is the first solo show by an artist ever presented in the sky.
