ROOMS 11-15: dicembre 2022 - marzo 2023

THE ROOM is a Centotto curatorial project launched over social media by Paul D'Agostino in the fall of 2022. It's one of several online initiatives D'Agostino has developed since Centotto began operating primarily at large after existing as a physical space in Brooklyn, NY, from spring 2008 to November 2019.

The Room consists of thematically conceived, selectively sequenced group exhibitions presented as schematic slideshows and spare text. Shows generally appear as series of ten slides and are uniformly billed as “In the Room,” followed by a number and contextualizing title. Intended as curatorial incubators, these Rooms are imagined as exhibits of actual artworks in actual rooms and exhibition spaces, or as objects in outdoor settings, and the sequencing of each slideshow is meant to suggest some sense of a trajectory. Manners of further interpretation remain open and, ideally, unknowably many.

Below is the title and roster information for The Room exhibits 11-15, followed by grids of thumbnail images from each slideshow. For proper images, captions, and slideshow sequences, click on the Rooms 11-15 tab under Highlights at @pauldagostinostudio.

Welcome to The Room. Enjoy the shows.
