ART MEETS DREAMS

A theme that becomes a journey, discovery, knowledge, emotion: the dream.
Some of the great protagonists of contemporary art reveal themselves through intimate, visionary works.

In a remarkable place: the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome.
With eyes open or shut, by night or day, kept secret or made real: an exhibition about desires, expectations, fantasies and exorcized fears. An exhibition that allows spectators to give shape to their own dreams.
The exhibition, curated by Danilo Eccher, considers the dream as an element of reflection, of discovery, as a private expression, as a gateway into the deepest space of the soul.
Site-specific works alternate with works redesigned for the spaces of the Chiostro del Bramante, in a sequence that turns into one big story, thanks partly to the direct involvement of the artists. The exhibition itinerary is imagined as an experience that leads the public from the darkest zones to the meditative dimension and on to the heavenly spaces of the soul.
The protagonist artists are:
Jaume Plensa, Anselm Kiefer, Mario Merz, Giovanni Anselmo, Christian Boltanski, Doris Salcedo, Henrik Håkansson, Wolfgang Laib, Claudio Costa, Kate MccGwire, Anish Kapoor, Tsuyoshi Tane, Ryoji Ikeda, Bill Viola, Alexandra Kehayoglou, Peter Kogler, Luigi Ontani, Ettore Spalletti, Tatsuo Miyajima, James Turrell.
In the setting of the perfect Renaissance architecture of Donato Bramante a surprising itinerary, a journey that is physical, surreal, mental and dreamlike, leading the spectators through a series of stages and passages, stops and re-starts.

Dream completes the trilogy conceived and curated by Danilo Eccher for Chiostro del Bramante, which began with Love (2016), followed by Enjoy (2017). Three great exhibitions dedicated to the most intimate human emotions represented through the many poetics of contemporary art; three panoramas that are capable of exploring the feelings of the soul: from the ambiguity of desire to the most exhilarating joys and on into the unconscious.
