At the fair’s exhibition space, an exclusive and highly evocative area was reserved for the photographic prowess of US master Gregory Crewdson (Brooklyn, 1962). Since the 1980s, Crewdson has been able to convey, like no other artist, the dreamlike aspect and elusive emotional tension lurking beneath the drab, homogenised, motionless and often gloom-laden surface of both everyday life in middle-class suburban America and the extraordinary, yet vacuous and contrast-filled existences of the victims of the so-called “star system”.
Here, a collection of his masterworks will be displayed, commissioned by Intesa Sanpaolo for the exhibition “Gregory Crewdson. Eveningside”, which will be held at the Gallerie d'Italia museum in Turin, from 12 October to 22 January 2023. The exhibition - a unique event curated by French art critic Jean-Charles Vergne - brings together, for the very first time, the photographer’s three series created between 2012 and 2022, in a trilogy that offers an all-new perspective on a decade brimming with creation.
