Alfredo Aceto

Lavorare Lavorare Lavorare, Preferisco il Rumore del Mare

15.04 — 03.05.15

Opening: April 14, 2015 at 6 p.m.


Following Refaire le portrait, acte #1, the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève presents Lavorare, lavorare, lavorare, preferisco it rumore del mare*, an exhibition curated by Alfredo Aceto, artist currently in residence at the Centre.

This second instalment of the exhibition, provides an ironic and friendly response to Valentin Carron, Swiss artist and curator of the exhibition Work Hard, which is currently taking place at the Swiss Institute in New York. Aceto decided to appropriate the exhibition-as-medium as a nod to Carron, who was recently sued for plagiarism after having appropriated the work “Aube” by Italian artist Francesco Marino di Teana.


Using appropriation and misappropriation, this exhibition is a kind of homage to Work Hard, staging the possible reproducibility of the ecosystem of an exhibition.

A selection by Alfredo Aceto, with: Paul Limoujoux, Emanuele Marcuccio, Ugo Nespolo & Simon Paccaud.

* ”Working, working, working, I prefer the sound of the sea” title taken from a work by Ugo Nespolo.


Exhibition: 15.04 — 03.05.15

Opening: 14.04.15 at 6 p.m.
