New and radical developments in contemporary art

ameτρια is the privilege of disproportion, of excess, the rejection of an overall vision, the error that turns out to be right. Out of the meeting of the Benaki Museum and the DESTE Foundation, works and objects become proofs of an impulse that, as a precise and determinate entity, takes part in the evolution of thought.
Totally uninterested in the values of community life, which promotes the virtues of measure and the happy mean, dismeasure is the expression of an original purposeless drive, which chooses neither to have nor not to have and whose sole intention is to be exercised without reserve. The degree of dismeasure is dependent on just how radical is the drive that expresses it.
The exhibition is part of the collaboration between the DESTE Foundation and the Benaki Museum, which aims to promote new and radical developments in contemporary art through a series of solo and group contemporary art exhibitions hosted at the museum.
The exhibition is based on an idea by Roberto Cuoghi.
