Tobias Rehberger Makes a Guest Appearance at Deutsche Bank Milan

There will be a high-caliber charity event at the Milan headquarters of Deutsche Bank on January 19, when Tobias Rehberger shows his Evoluzione, a psychedelic version of the current Fiat 500. The event is presented by Deutsche Bank and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. Godmother of the event is Lavinia Borromeo Elkann, the wife of Fiat president John Elkann. Flavio Valeri, CEO of Deutsche Bank Italy, and Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo will also be present. The prominent collector founded her Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation in 1995 in Turin. Like the Deutsche Bank Collection, the Fondazione dedicates itself mainly to the support of younger artists. Rehberger’s mobile work of art, which was seen in public for the first time in November 2010 at the Artissima art fair in Turin, will be auctioned in the spring by Sotheby’s. The proceeds from the auction will go to the neonatal ward at Sant’Anna Hospital in Turin. The Milan headquarters of Deutsche Bank Italy provides the ideal context for the presentation of Evoluzione: important contemporary Italian artists have created site-specific works of art for the building. During guided tours and open house days, the works from the Deutsche Bank Collection on view here are made accessible to the public on a regular basis.

"I’m a big fan of motorized sculptures, because they can’t stand in your way," remarks Rehberger in reference to Evoluzione. For the project, he used fluorescent spray paint to transform a Fiat 500 into a work of art that exudes the optimism of the late sixties. The 1966-born artist has been working for years along the boundary between art and design. His cafeteria in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni at the 2009 Venice Biennale was awarded the Golden Lion. The artist has close ties to the Deutsche Bank Collection: his works have been acquired on a regular basis since 1992; in addition, he has created two editions for the bank. In the recently modernized towers of Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt, an entire floor has been dedicated to Tobias Rehberger.
