Roberto Cuoghi

°1973, Modena (IT) – lives and works in Milan (IT)

Italian artist Roberto Cuoghi has achieved international acclaim for his work, which incorporates a wide range of techniques including photography, video, digital animation, painting, drawing, sculpture and sound. Perhaps he is best known for his dramatic life choice, at age 24, where he embarked on a seven year process in which he took on the image of his father, including wearing his father’s clothes, turning his hair grey and gaining more than 50 pounds. That decision laid the groundwork for many of his works that explore issues surrounding transformation, time, memory, identity, and death.

Roberto Cuoghi has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at New Museum, New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and Castello di Rivoli, Turin. His work has been shown in several group exhibitions at important venues worldwide, such as Whitechapel Gallery, London; Aspen Art Museum, Aspen; MACBA, Barcelona; and Gamec, Bergamo. He also participated at the 53rd and 55th Venice Biennale, in 2009 and 2013; Gwangju Biennale in 2010; and the 4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art in 2006.

His work is represented in many important public collections such as Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Castello di Rivoli, Turin; and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
