After the success of staff dedicated to Enzo Cucchi, The BRAND Catanzaro has Re Figured, the first public exhibition in Italy of the Canadian sculptor Evan Penny, among the major exponents of contemporary plastic.
L’iniziativa, by Daniel J. Schreiber, Director of the Kunsthalle Tubingen, Alberto Fiz and artistic director of MAKE, promoted by the Province of Catanzaro-Department of Culture, is the result of a partnership international, involving the museum together with Stiftung Kunsthalle Tubingen, at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, and the museum in August in Toronto.
The exhibition is organized with the support of Regione Calabria, Ministry of Heritage and Culture, Regional Directorate for Cultural Heritage and Landscape of Calabria, Association and Foundation Scolacium Wheel.

Re Figured, that will begin Saturday at BRAND 21 April at 18,30 to remain open until 30 June, is the most important exhibition of the artist made to date with over 40 works accompanied by a selection of photographic prints.
The works are made of silicone, synthetic resin and bronze, and many of them have a monumental scale with a height of over eight feet as Aerial#2 the Stretch#1.
These works are mostly made in the last decade but there are earlier examples documenting the creative evolution of Penny.
