\n

P ier Paolo Pasolini - the filmmaker\, poet\, sentimental leftist\, and trans gressive legend - lived a life marked by curious contradiction and unimpeac hable integrity. Sculpted by a nomadic Italian childhood filled with religi on\, war\, Socialism\, Facism\, and run-ins with the law\, Pasolini reconce ived\, in a prodigious obsessive body of remarkably diverse work\, the enti re patrimony of post-WWII-Italy as a personal mythology refracted by the ur gent demands of modern continental life and contemporary politics in an age of extremes.

\n

Beginning with his first film\, Accatone (1961) on th rough to the game-changing Sálo (1975)\, Pasolini worked in an era in which avant-garde artistic gestures felt still truly dangerous\, in which artist s retained the power to shock\, and in which the imposition of a personal a rtistic vision felt still like a radical\, rather than narcissistic\, act. Pasolini made the most of that power\, and has become in the decades since an object of personal obsession for thousands of contemporary artists\, man y of whom offer up here\, in a showcase that is as much open tribute as it is narrow appreciation\, their own idiosyncratic homage to a person who has had an outsized influence on a whole generation enamored of radical gestur es in a skeptical\, ironic age.

\n

Pasolini is a mercurial\, even arca ne influence on the 37 artists whose work is assembled here—sculptors\, pho tographers\, video and multimedia artists\, romantics and transgressives\, advocacy artists and ironists. The tributes are in some cases straightforwa rd — painted portraits of Pasolini subjects\, collage and video sourced fro m his own work — and in other cases more oblique — sculptures addressing th e subject of restraint\, watery sketches in which figures dissolve into got hic ethereality. Some are hardly tributes at all—idiosyncratic arguments in stead with particular corners of Pasolini’s practice\, often revealing far more about the work and obsessions of the contemporary artist than the too- divergent-to-be-uncontradictorially-contained miscellaneous Italian master. The result is a social-networking-style and purposefully-loosely curated e xhibition that points in 37 directions at once—possibly more.
