For the fifth edition of the Furla Series program, Fondazione Furla and GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna of Milan announce Somethings in the World, a solo exhibition by Suzanne Jackson, curated by Bruna Roccasalva.

The exhibition—the first to be dedicated to the artist by a European institution—will offer a glimpse of the research Suzanne Jackson has been carrying out for over fifty years, along an exhibition path that retraces key moments of her career.

Suzanne Jackson is an American artist whose practice embraces a broad field of investigation exploring the potential of painting, nourished by experiences in dance, theater, and poetry. Her initial figurative production—populated by a pictorial matrix of characters, animals, and references to nature—evolved over the years, progressively approaching abstraction, until arriving at the elaboration of a very personal vocabulary in which painting takes on both a sculptural and environmental dimension.

From her dreamlike paintings of the 1970s to the radical experiments of the most recent, free-hanging “anti-canvases,” the exhibition highlights the most salient moments of the artist’s production through a selection of iconic works, previously unseen works and new productions that enter into dialogue with the museum context and its own collection.

Suzanne Jackson’s exhibition is the fifth edition of the Furla Series project, and is the upshot of the collaboration between Fondazione Furla and GAM: a partnership begun in 2021 to promote annual exhibition projects providing a unique opportunity for past masters and protagonists of the contemporary scene to come face to face.

Furla Series is the project cycle that since 2017 has seen the Fondazione Furla engaged in the creation of exhibitions in collaboration with major Italian art institutions, with an all-female program designed to valorize and showcase women’s fundamental contribution to contemporary culture.
