A.D.D ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER
A.D.D. Attention Deficit Disorder is a contemporary art exhibition under the auspices of “VIEW. Routes of the contemporary in Umbria”, an original network project conceived by Maurizio Coccia. The project involves the Towns of Città della Pieve, Magione and Trevi in a rich series of events related to contemporary art. A.D.D. is the fifth appointment on calendar. It presents the curatorial approach of Benjamin Godsill, assistant curator at New Museum of New York for the first time in Italy, and is a selection of work from the Il Giardino dei Lauri Collection. Palazzo Lucarini renews the synergy between public and private spaces with an exhibition that demonstrates once again how the Town of Trevi and the Cultural Association Palazzo Lucarini Contemporary, which is active there, are the voice of the most up-to-date instances of artistic research, and bearers of cutting edge cultural production. The exhibition starts from the concept of A.D.D. – the Attention Deficit Disorder and hyperactivity that is a hallmark of our age. This is a recurrent theme in our over stimulated contemporary existence. As the Curator says «I watch TV as I listen to music as I surf the internet as I return a text message, as I look at art. It is an unending stream of concurrent and interrelated data, thoughts, ideas, and exchanges and it is all happening now. It’s happening to you as well as me, and no less to the artists who are documenting our times and creating monuments to now.
