This exhibition – curated by Gianni Romano – marks the first US showing of a series of works, both digital prints and canvases, inspired by the “Out of Sync” concept which has been at the hub of the artist’s activity in recent years.

The works displayed in New York are accompanied by a loop using four short films made by four illustrious directors. These shorts, by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Bernardo Bertolucci, Carlo Lizzani, and Jean-Luc Godard, are chosen by Giorgio Brogi to explain – in cinematic language – the correspondence between his vision and the vision of these directors.

The video-episodes and Brogi’s own video, “Out of Sync,” will be projected at the same time, setting up an interpretative dialogue of exchange and comparison on themes that concern us but fail to touch us, such as indifference, agony, poetry, and love.

The “Out of Sync” project is constantly refreshed with new material and the locations it inhabits: it is a play of mirrors, a book, an environmental video show, a video-painting and performance; it concludes with the works presented in New York, and will be presented in other forms and sequences in Milan and Naples in the course of 2009.
