Some USA Stories marks the first solo exhibition of the artist in Turkey. It will be simultaneously held with the Istanbul Biennial at Dirimart’s main exhibition venue at Nişantaşı.
Some USA Stories displays selected works from the artist’s same-titled series, which was exhibited in 2012 at the Kunstmuseum Krefeld. The conceptual framework of the series is centered on the history and the leading figures of the USA. The artist interprets American society and its economy while inviting the viewers to explore the dark side of the country.
Marcaccio’s Some USA Stories redefines contemporary painting as both a study on historical events as well as the nature of painting itself, and in doing so he invites the viewer to step on the other side of the canvas.
