Aperture Foundation is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by artist Andrea Galvani, winner of the
2010 Exposure Prize. Curated by Nora Lawrence, Four Works shows both the breadth of the artist’s work in
the last five years and the consistency of his research. Cerebral, austere, and visually sharp, Galvani's images
present singular moments in time that invite the viewer to enter rich, seductive and allusive visual universes.
Two of the images selected for this exhibition are being shown for the first time in the United States.

following artist residencies: MIA Artist Space, Trinity Project/Columbia University Department of Fine Arts (2010), LMCC Lower
Manhattan Cultural Council (2009), Location One International Artist Residency Program (2008). His work has been exhibited
internationally, including at The Whitney Museum, Central Utah Art Center, Mart Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Trento,
