Anselm Kiefer. Angeli caduti / Fallen Angel (photo: Giovanni Fedi) | Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza Strozzi - Firenze Palazzo Strozzi presents a major exhibition dedicated to one of the greatest masters of the 20th and 21st century art, Anselm Kiefer. The exhibition allows direct contact with the art of the German artist thorough new and historical works that engage in a profound dialogue with the Renaissance architecture of Palazzo Strozzi, including a new work especially created for the palace's internal courtyard.
Curated by Arturo Galansino, General Director of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, Anselm Kiefer. Fallen Angel is a journey that reflects on topics such as identity, history, and philosophy.
Through painting, sculpture, installation and photography, Kiefer's art offers deep introspection into the human condition, in a complex weaving of connections between the past, present and future. Since his debut on the art scene in the late sixties, Anselm Kiefer is involved in an impactful, richly-layered work that explore themes of memory, myth, history, literature, and poetry. Every work of Kiefer expresses a refusal of limits-not only through scale and materiality-but also through the infinite richness of resources with which he probes the depths of memory and the past.
Until 21 July 2024. Everyday 10.00-20.00. Thursdays until 23.00.

Bruno Munari. TUTTO | Fondazione Magnani-Rocca, Via Fondazione Magnani-Rocca, 4 - Mamiano di Traversetolo (Parma) At the Magnani-Rocca Foundation the largest Italian exhibition on one of the most iconic figures of design and visual communication of the 20th century – Bruno Munari – created after the memorable exhibitions of the Rotonda della Besana (2007) in Milan, and the Ara Pacis ( 2008) in Rome.
One of the greatest creative geniuses of the twentieth century, the inventor Bruno Munari (Milan 1907-1998), defined by Pierre Restany as the Leonardo and the Peter Pan of Italian design.
Seventy years of ideas and works in all fields of creativity are concentrated in the exhibition, from art to design, from graphics to pedagogy: precisely because of the difficulty of clearly resolving the linguistic territories he addressed over time, the exhibition will divided by attitudes and concepts, so as to be able to show the connections and design relationships between objects, even apparently very different ones from each other.
Graphics, objects, works of art, TUTTO (EVERYTHING) responds to a design method that is becoming more precise over the years, with major courses in American universities and with the most ambitious project, which is that of laboratories to stimulate children's creativity, which from 1977 are still at the forefront in teaching pre-school and early school age.
From 16 March to 30 June 2024. Hours: Tuesday to Friday 10am-6pm; Saturday, Sunday and holidays continued 10am-7pm. Also open April 25th, May 1st, June 2nd. Closed Monday, open Easter Monday.

Suzanne Jackson. Somethings in the World | GAM - Galleria d'Arte Moderna, Villa Reale di Milano, Via Palestro, 16 - 20121 Milano 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 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.
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. From September 15 to December 17, 2023.

Cento anni di NasonMoretti. Storia di una famiglia del vetro muranese | Museo del Vetro, Fondamenta Giustinian, 8 - 30141 Murano The exhibition One hundred years of NasonMoretti. The Story of a Murano Glass Family celebrates a well-known Murano company, NasonMoretti which in 2023 celebrates one hundred years of activity.
Founded in 1923, as Cristalleria Nason & Moretti, the company immediately chose a specific direction – the art of the table – and, with an air of profound modernity, is able to keep faith with the technical tradition of the past by reinterpreting it according to contemporary formulas and a manufacturing, even then, semi-industrial for the extensive use of the "mould". In fact, the first room will welcome the visitor with a spectacular setting of great effect which will immediately highlight how the peculiarity of NasonMoretti is linked to the art of the table with objects of the most varied shapes and very intense colours.
The exhibition itinerary continues chronologically from the symbolic services, such as the Francesca from 1926, of which a copy is kept in the Museo della Wolsfoniana in Genoa, and the Service for the Vittoriale from 1930 in black and coral red glass or the Rep, the official goblet of the tables del Quirinale – always in a close dialogue between drawing and object created. Until January 6, 2024.

Galileo Chini. Ceramiche tra liberty e déco | MIC Faenza, Viale Baccarini, 19 - Faenza (Ravenna) Galileo Chini knew how to adapt his poetics to the fashions of the time, attentive to the decoration that becomes an emotional pattern.
The exhibition at MIC - Museo internazionale delle Ceramiche di Faenza Galileo Chini. Ceramiche tra liberty e déco.
curated by Claudia Casali and Valerio Terraroli, exhibits about 300 ceramics, some of which unpublished, and prepartory drawings to document the different steps of Chini's activity, one of the greatest protagonists of Italian Liberty.
Chini was a versatile artist, among the pioneers of Art Nouveau in Italy of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but also a refiner of the Deco taste developed during the twenties. He devoted himself passionately to the art of ceramics, with a varied, original and highly personal production, as well as to painting and fresco painting.
He painted still lifes, beautiful landscapes of his Versilia, portraits and environments that recall his experience in Bangkok, where he was a guest of the King of Siam, precisely to fresco the imperial residences, after the celebrated experience in 1909 of decorating the "Sala della Cupola" of Biennale in Venice, in full Art Nouveau style.
Chini's ceramic work is recounted through a rich ceramic itinerary consisting of five sections, with scenic insights recreating the historical and cultural environment in which the artist worked.
Until 14 May 2023.

Simon Fujiwara. Who is Who-Dimensional? | Gió Marconi, Via Tadino 15 | 20124 Milano Gió Marconi is pleased to announce Who is Who-Dimensional?, Simon Fujiwara's third solo exhibition at the gallery, in the historical venue in Milan.
Building on a string of international exhibitions centered around his cartoon character Who the Baer, Fujiwara presents a body of new two dimensional or 'flat works' from his highly acclaimed series which debuted in 2020 at the Fondazione Prada, Milan.
Who the Baer was developed by the artist during the first pandemic lockdown as a 'Dada-esque response to an increasingly absurd and incomprehensible world.' Faced with the seemingly unresolvable questions raised by global protests and the dissolution of our traditional identity structures, Fujiwara created an avatar in the form of an identity-free cartoon character named 'Who' - a white, fuzzy bear with a golden heart and an impossibly long tongue.
February 17 - April 19, 2023. From Tuesday to Saturday, 11am - 6pm.

Dora Garcia. Lettere di disincanto | Laveronica arte contemporanea, Via Grimaldi 93 - 97015 Modica (Ragusa) An exhibition opening at the end of the year necessarily has to contain an element of transition. This is the case with this one, titled Dora Garcia. Letters of Disappointment. It is a show featuring works that were preparatory or research studies to other larger or collective works, together with some recurring "reading" formats such as I Read It with Golden Fingers or Annotated Books.

The work that gives the title, Letters of Disappointment, condenses three years of going through texts written by remarkable, historical authors such as Rosa Luxemburg, Alexandra Kollontai, Audre Lorde, Clara Zetkin or Angela Davis, on the subject of disappointment.
March 25, 2023. Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-7pm.

Olafur Eliasson: Nel tuo tempo | Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza Strozzi - FirenzeStarting 22 September 2022 the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi will be hosting Olafur Eliasson: Nel tuo tempo, the largest exhibition in Italy to date exploring the art of Olafur Eliasson. One of the most original and visionary artists of our time, Eliasson's multifaceted practice places the visitor at the heart of his reflection on the notion of shared experience and interaction with reality.
Curated by Arturo Galansino, Director General of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, the exhibition is a creation of the artist's direct interaction with the spaces of Palazzo Strozzi. The artist has worked on all of the Palazzo's Renaissance spaces, from the courtyard to the Piano Nobile and the Strozzina undercroft in a path that features new installations and historic works that combine elements as colour, water, and light to create an interaction with our senses and the Renaissance architecture. The historical and symbolic architecture of the Palazzo is reimagined with installations built around the visitor who becomes an integral part of the artwork.
The exhibition is produced in conjunction with the Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea which will be hosting a site-specific installation by the artist from November 3rd, 2022.
Until 22 January 2023.

CRAZY. Madness in Contemporary Art (photo: Ian Davenport, Poured Staircase, 2022) | Dart - Chiostro del Bramante, Via della Pace - Roma Dart - Chiostro del Bramante in Rome presents CRAZY. Madness in Contemporary Art, a collective exhibition curated by Danilo Eccher. 21 international artists, more than 11 new site-specific installations: for the first time the works of art will invade the interior and exterior spaces of the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome, because madness can have no limits. A perception of the world is the first sign of instability, the first contact between external reality and the brain, between physical truth and poetic creativity, between laws of optics and neurological disorders.
The 21 artists called to participate are part of this madness: Carlos Amorales, Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter, Massimo Bartolini, Gianni Colombo, Petah Coyne, Ian Davenport (photo), Janet Echelman, Fallen Fruit / David Allen Burns e Austin Young, Lucio Fontana, Anne Hardy, Thomas Hirschhorn, Alfredo Jaar, Alfredo Pirri, Gianni Politi, Tobias Rehberger, Anri Sala, Yinka Shonibare, Sissi, Max Streicher, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Sun Yuan & Peng Yu.
Madness, like art, refuses established patterns, escapes from any rigid framework, rebels against constraints. No ordinary and predictable path in favor of a creative explosion capable of expanding, like Ian Davenport’s pigment flowing on the stairs, and of modifying the spatial perception, like Gianni Colombo’s environment (1970). A violent shockwave that invades every accessible room, mixing and ensuring strong expressive leaps between the exposed works. A complex, subjective, oblique narration; an inclusive and participatory atmosphere; a distribution of artworks and isolated and autonomous spaces in all available places, even invading those usually excluded from the museum pathway.
Until 8 January 2023. From Monday to Friday from 10.00 to 20.00. Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 to 21.00.

Charlotte Posenenske. From B to E and more | Fondazione Antonio Dalle Nogare, Rafensteiner Weg 19, Bolzano From 11th September 2021 onwards, Fondazione Antonio Dalle Nogare will be exhibiting Charlotte Posenenske's first show in Italy, curated by Vincenzo de Bellis.
An internationally acclaimed artist and a figure central to the German minimalist movement, Charlotte Posenenske (1930-1985) worked mainly with sculpture, and received numerous accolades in Germany and from the international scene up until her decision, in 1968, to dedicate her life to sociology.
From B to E and more is Posenenske's first retrospective in Italy, and it traces the evolution of this artist, who died prematurely, by concentrating on a series of works that were created in the span of a decade.
In her early works on paper, present in the exhibition in a selection of 17 items, the artist already focused on the exploration of abstract space. In her brief artistic career, Posenenske exhibited widely alongside illustrious peers such as Hanne Darboven, Donald Judd, Carl Andre and Sol LeWitt, with whom she shared an interest in seriality and the formal rigour of geometrical forms. At the same time, her work is distinguished by its radically open-ended nature. Until May 28, 2022.

Basil Kincaid. The Rolling Fields to My House | Galleria Poggiali | Milano, Foro Bonaparte, 52 - Milano Driven by the quest to understand the texture of his own personal and cultural identity within the African diaspora, filtered through the superstructures of his American experience, artist Basil Kincaid (1986, St. Louis, Missouri) debuts a new body of works in the Milan headquarters of the Galleria Poggiali with his first Italian solo exhibition titled The Rolling Fields to My House.
Through collage, photography, installations, performance and, especially, the technique of quilting - made using found, salvaged or donated materials -Basil Kincaid questions social practices while designing alternative cultural fabrics. Resourcefulness and freedom of imagination emerge as critical components in the liberation of the spirit. Co-creating places that stimulate the ancestral memory of love understood as inborn freedom, activating space to participate in shared liberation on local and global scale.

Luigi Ghirri. The Marazzi Years 1975 - 1985 | Palazzo Ducale di Sassuolo (Gallerie Estensi), Piazzale della Rosa 10 - Sassuolo, ModenaFrom 16 September to 31 October 2021, an almost completely unseen collection of photographs by Luigi Ghirri is the protagonist of the Luigi Ghirri. The Marazzi Years 1975-1985 exhibition, curated by Ilaria Campioli, at the Palazzo Ducale, Sassuolo. The Project, put on by Gallerie Estensi in partnership with the Archivio Luigi Ghirri and Marazzi Group, will be presented at the 21st edition of the Festival Filosofia (philosophy festival) in Modena, Carpi and Sassuolo, whose topic, Freedom, perfectly represents the spirit of the long-standing partnership between the artist and the ceramics company founded in the 1930s.
Luigi Ghirri first met Marazzi in Sassuolo in 1975, in a phase of personal growth and experimentation which communicates well with the direction of the company's research and development, focused at that time on some fundamental points such as colour, dimensions and internationalisation. The result is a unique partnership, where the artist creates an important corpus of works, almost completely free from the criteria of the advertising image: a research in which ceramics are read as surfaces and mental space, an infinite possibility of composition, light and colour.

American Art 1961-2001. From Andy Warhol to Kara Walker / JR. The Wound / La ferita | Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza Strozzi - 50123 FirenzeFrom 28 May to 29 August 2021 Palazzo Strozzi presents American Art 1961-2001. From Andy Warhol to Kara Walker, a major exhibition taking a new perspective on the history of contemporary art in the United States. The exhibition brings together an outstanding selection of more than 80 works by 55 artists including Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko, Louise Nevelson, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Bruce Nauman, Barbara Kruger, Robert Mapplethorpe, Cindy Sherman, Matthew Barney, Kara Walker and many more, exhibited in Florence through a collaboration with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Exhibiting many formative works for the first time in Italy, the exhibition examines the most important figures and movements that marked the development of American art from the beginning of the Vietnam War until the 9/11 attack.

Curated by Vincenzo de Bellis and Arturo Galansino, the exhibition takes an in-depth look at the breadth of American artistic production: from Pop Art to Minimalism, from Conceptual Art to the Pictures Generation - and including more recent artistic developments in the 1990s and 2000s. Paintings, photographs, videos, sculptures, and art installations propose an unprecedented reinterpretation of forty years of history, exploring the role of art as a powerful tool for addressing such topics as consumerism, mass production, feminism and gender identity, racial issues, and the struggle for civil rights.

Exhibition hours Monday-Friday 14.00-21.00, Saturday, Sunday and Holidays 10.00-21.00.

Palazzo Strozzi has also unveiled a major new installation by acclaimed French contemporary artist JR, whose site-specific artwork La Ferita (The Wound) has reinterpreted the façade of the Renaissance palazzo, opening it up to reveal a vision of an interior at once real and imaginary achieved with a black and white photographic collage to trigger a debate on the accessibility of culture in the age of Covid-19. Until 22 August 2021.

Enzo Mari curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist with Francesca Giacomelli | Triennale Milano, Viale Alemagna, 6 - 20121 MilanoTriennale Milano with its Museo del Design Italiano presents Enzo Mari curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Francesca Giacomelli, an exhibition devoted to the work and ideas of Enzo Mari, one of the most important designers, artists, critics and theorists. The show includes projects, models, drawings, and materials, many of which have never been shown before, from the Enzo Mari Archive, recently donated to CASVA, the centre for advanced studies in the visual arts of the City of Milan.
The exhibition has emerged from the incessant dialogue and exchange of ideas over the years between Mari and the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, looking at more than 60 years of art and design, architecture and philosophy, teaching and graphics.
The exhibition consists of a historical section, curated by Francesca Giacomelli, and a series of contributions from international artists and designers - Adelita Husni-Bey, Tacita Dean, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Mimmo Jodice, Dozie Kanu, Adrian Paci, Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Danh Vo, and Nanda Vigo - who have been invited to pay tribute to Mari with site-specific installations and new, specially commissioned works. One contribution in particular is that of Nanda Vigo, whose work, made specially for the exhibition shortly before her death and never shown previously, uses light to reinterpret 16 animali and 16 pesci, two of Mari's most famous works.
The Enzo Mari retrospective is part of a series of major exhibitions put on by Triennale and its Museo del Design Italiano to examine the great masters of design (Sottsass, Bellini, and Castiglioni). The journey will continue in April 2021 with an exhibition devoted to Vico Magistretti.

Tomás Saraceno. Aria | Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza Strozzi - 50123 FirenzeThe exhibition Tomás Saraceno. Aria has reopened and will continue until 1st November 2020 in Palazzo Strozzi, Florence. Devoted to one of the world's most original and visionary contemporary artists whose multi-disciplinary practice encompasses art, social and life sciences the exhibit (curated by Arturo Galansino) is the largest project ever made in Italy.
Saraceno creates immersive works and participatory experiences that suggest a new way of living in our world by making connections to non-human phenomena such as dust particles and plants. This major exhibition will be his largest project to date in Italy, responding to the specific context of Palazzo Strozzi, and its relationship to the cultural and scientific history of Florence.
"The art of Tomás Saraceno prompts us to reflect on the emblematic and increasingly urgent problems and challenges or our age, the Anthropocene era, such as pollution, climate change, sustainability and overcoming geographical and social barriers", said Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi Director General Arturo Galansino , the exhibition curator, adding: "In Palazzo Strozzi, the artistic research of Tomás, who unveils utopian and yet very real worlds with his open and interconnected vision, is further exalted in terms both of its significance and of its unique aesthetic power by being juxtaposed with the setting of our palazzo, a symbol of Humanism. The exhibition title, Air, does not simply refer to themes and elements that are typical features of the artist's work, it also sets out to sound the alarm bell for our planet and its atmosphere, now in a critical condition, and to herald the transition to a new geological era, the Aerocene, which centres precisely on this extremely precious and valuable element".

Weinstein's work is based on iconic subjects, then manipulated to represent contemporaneity, not without a subtle irony. After the success of his Israel Pavilion in the last edition of the Venice Biennale, the artist returns to Italy with works that have been conceptually originated from that experience, they show the diverse resistance of some materials, manifesting procedures of dissolution, decomposition and aging.

The street as a place of sharing and innovation, the principal laboratory for artists, architects and creatives.
More than 140 artists and over 200 works to compose the multicultural, polyglot, colorful, scary, stimulating, deafening story of the streets of the whole world, the real great laboratory for discussion, creation, comparison, where the contemporary era is invented.

Astrid Svangren, her spinning takes place near the mouth / I see what I eat / I eat what I see / It is an eating that is about risk | Quartz Studio, Via Giulia di Barolo, 18/D - 10124 TorinoQuartz Studio is pleased to present her spinning takes place near the mouth / I see what I eat / I eat what I see / It is an eating that is about risk, the first solo show in Italy by the Swedish artist Astrid Svangren (Göteborg, Sweden, 1972), drafted by the Danish curator Nina Wöhlk. The site-specific installation conceived for Quartz Studio will seek to think through colour as a living entity. Something that has agency, the ability to shape and be shaped by the context that gives it its form. It will explore colour as a language that gives meaning to feelings, thoughts, and dreams and all their contradictions, and which resists any other form of expression. Colour as irreducible to language; experienced only as lived. The work is an attempt to know what cannot be said.
Until March 23, 2019.

FFrom Gesture to Form. Postwar European and American Art from the Schulhof Collection | Collezione Peggy Guggenheim, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, Dorsoduro 701 - 30123 VeneziaThe exhibition From Gesture to Form. Postwar European and American Art from the Schulhof Collection curated by Gražina Subelyte and Karole P. B. Vail on view until 18 March 2019, is an opportunity to view the Schulhof Collection nearly in its entirety. Privileging formal artistic developments, this presentation provides insights into the art movements and styles that evolved and matured towards the end of World War II through to the 1980s. Abstract imagery, as a quest into issues of color, form and space as well as their interrelationships, characterized the postwar decades, becoming the foundation of the Schulhof Collection.
The display reflects this overarching abstract crescendo of minimalism and refinement, opening with works by artists such as Afro Basaldella, Alberto Burri, Willem de Kooning, Lucio Fontana, Hans Hofmann, Joan Mitchell, Mark Rothko and Cy Twombly, proceeding with those by Eduardo Chillida, Jean Dubuffet, Hans Hartung, Anselm Kiefer, Agnes Martin, and eventually arriving at the paintings and sculptures by Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Kenneth Noland, Robert Ryman, Frank Stella and Andy Warhol, among others. The works are grouped and arranged according to style, theme and affinity, exploring notions that include but are not limited to gestural abstraction, materiality, the monochrome, the mark and the grid, hard-edged geometries and elemental form.

LOW FORM. Imaginaries and Visions in the Age of Artificial Intelligence | MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Via Guido Reni, 4/a - 00196 RomaMAXXI presents an exploration of the technological and surreal imaginary of the artists of today, from computer-generated dreams to creative algorithms and avatars that question the meaning of existence.
More than just an exhibition, but a workshop for study and debate on themes and issues associated with our relationship with technology and the incredible scenarios opened by its evolution: Low Form. Imaginaries and Visions in the Age of Artificial Intelligence is an immersive, multimedia and multisensory display.
In an era in which technologies evolve increasingly rapidly and we are questioning how far the relationship between man and machine can go, the exhibition presents the visions of 16 international artists showing a present and a future, the representation of which is the offspring of technological unconsciousness and a dilated imaginary, in which traditional analogical references and the contemporary hyperconnected digital consciousness are combined.
Gallery 2, curated by Bartolomeo Pietromarchi from 20 October 2018 to 24 February 2019.

When Sound Becomes Form is the story of the Italian sonic avant-garde through photographs, films, videos, historic posters, original LPs and audio contributions.
How did sound progressively liberate itself from rules and codes to be investigated as pure vibration? How did the new electronic technologies stimulate the birth of innovative artistic idioms that including sonic manipulation? From silence to noise, from phonemes to instruments, through to the infinite possibilities of technical reproduction, the exhibition describes how over the years sound has permeated the artistic fabric to the point where it contaminate film, theatres, choreography, literature, publishing and the mass media.
From the works of the great fathers of sonic experimentation of the 1960s, Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna, to the happenings inspired by Fluxus, John Cage and the Gruppo Gitai; from the sonic poems of Maurizio Nannucci to the audio visual environments of Ugo La Pietra and Gruppo T; from the experimentation and the first festivals of the 1970s, Punk and Carmelo Bene, the spread of computers and the first works of interactive art in the 1980s through to the present day with collaborations between the likes of Mimmo Paladino and Brian Eno. All this to tell the story of sonic experimentation in Italy between 1950 and 2000, in an exhibition housed in the museum hall and the space devoted to the archives.
Through 17 March 2019. Lobby / archive wall curated by Carlo Fatigoni.

Marina Abramovic. The Cleaner | Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza Strozzi - FirenzeFrom 21 September 2018 to 20 January 2019 Palazzo Strozzi is hosting Italy's first ever major retrospective devoted to Marina Abramovic, one of the most celebrated and controversial figures on the contemporary art scene, a woman who with her works has revolutionised the very idea of performance art, putting her body to the test to probe her outer limits and her potential for expression.
The event takes the shape of a mesmerising retrospective bringing together some 100 artworks by the artist, offering visitors an overview of the most celebrated works in her career stretching from the 1960s to the 2000s with videos, photographs, paintings, objects, installations and the live re-performance of her celebrated performances by a group of performers specifically selected and trained for the show.
The exhibition titled The Cleaner is the result of direct cooperation with the artist and - coming as it does after Ai Weiwei and Bill Viola - is part of an ongoing drive to continue the series of exhibitions that have brought the greatest exponents of contemporary art to show their work in Florence. The palazzo will once again be used as a single exhibition space, thus allowing Marina Abramovic for the very first time to take her measure of Renaissance architecture, underscoring the close tie that the artist has always enjoyed, and indeed continues to enjoy, with Italy.
The exhibition is organised by the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and produced by Moderna Museet, Stockholm in conjunction with the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk and the Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn. Curated by Arturo Galansino, Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, and Lena Essling, Moderna Museet, with Tine Colstrup, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, and Susanne Kleine, Bundeskunsthalle Bonn.

Osvaldo Licini. Let Sheer Folly Sweep Me Away Eleven exhibition galleries and over one hundred works retrace the disruptive and tormented artistic path of Osvaldo Licini (1894 - 1958), a major protagonist of Italian and international modernism, as confirmed by the award conferred a few months before his death at the Venice Biennale in 1958. Sixty years after that important recognition the museum commemorates Licini with the long-awaited retrospective curated by Luca Massimo Barbero.

Matt Mullican, The Feeling of Things | Pirelli HangarBicocca, Via Chiese, 2, 20126 Milano The Feeling of Things is the most extensive exhibition in Italy by Matt Mullican (born in 1951 in Santa Monica, California) and his major retrospective ever. In a continuous attempt to explain and structure what is around him, Mullican has been working since the early 1970s to develop a complex system of models and vocabulary that he calls the "five worlds," corresponding to different levels of perception and represented by five colors: green for physical, material elements; blue for everyday life (the "world unframed"); yellow where objects become valuable, as in art (the "world framed"); black and white for language and symbols; and red for subjectivity and ideas. For Pirelli HangarBicocca the artist has designed a massive sculptural structure that takes its shape from his most iconic five-color-cosmologies, occupying nearly the entire 5,000 square meter exhibition space. Visitors are invited to enter the structure to discover thousands of meticulously arranged works and objects. Representing an extremely rich selection of Mullican's seminal works from the 1970s as well as more recent times, they include paintings, rubbings, banners, glass sculptures, works on paper, videos, lightboxes, floor pieces and bigger installations and explore the most hermetic aspects of human life.
Until 16 September 2018. Exhibitions hours Monday to Wednesday: closed Thursday to Sunday: 10am-10pm.

On the occasion of his birth, MAXXI is devoting an exhibition produced in collaboration with the Fondazione Bruno Zevi to the great historian, lecturer, critic, politician and designer and to the modern and contemporary Italian architecture he supported and promoted through his work.
Through drawings, models and other visual materials, the exhibition intends to clarify the fundamental role played by Zevi in the Italian post-war architectural debate, highlighting the importance of the relationship between architecture and active politics.
Maurizio Sacripanti, Luigi Pellegrin, Franco Albini, Giovanni Michelucci, Mario Ridolfi and Carlo Mollino are just a few of the 35 featured architects whose designs, published and supported by Zevi, accompanied his career in over 50 years of critical, militant activity.
Gli Architetti di Zevi. Storia e controstoria dell'architettura italiana 1944-2000 (Zevi's Architects. History and Counter-History of Italian Architecture 1944-2000) runs from 25 April 2018 to 16 September 2018. Closed Mondays, December 25, May 1.

Nascita di una Nazione. Tra Guttuso, Fontana e Schifano | Palazzo Strozzi, Piazza Strozzi - Firenze From 16 March to 22 July 2018 Palazzo Strozzi is hosting an exhibition entitled Dawn of a Nation. From Guttuso to Fontana and Schifano, a truly mesmerising exploration of art, politics and society in Italy from the 1950s to the protest years in the late '60s, with eighty works of art by such masters as Renato Guttuso, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Emilio Vedova, Piero Manzoni, Mario Schifano, Mario Merz and Michelangelo Pistoletto. The exhibition, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, is bringing emblematic works of art together for the first time to form a display illustrating the effervescence of Italian culture after World War II, the years of the so-called "economic miracle" that marked a major transformation in Italian society, up until the fateful year of 1968. It was in this 20-year period that we see the development of a new vision of art reaching out into the contemporary world in an extraordinarily vibrant and inventive bust of creativity that spared neither style, material or form. The exhibition takes visitors on a journey setting out from the diatribe between Realism and Abstraction, continuing on to the triumph of Informal Art and leading through the images, gestures and figures of Pop Art in strident juxtaposition with the experimental vision of monochromatic painting, right up to the language of Arte Povera and of Conceptual Art.
Exhibition opening hours: Daily including holidays 10-20. Thursdays: 10-23.

Cardi Gallery Milan is delighted to present a solo exhibition of sculptures and drawings by Fred Sandback. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Estate of Fred Sandback; it is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with an essay by Germano Celant.
Eight sculptures are displayed at Cardi Gallery, Milan, along with a large selection of drawings and photostats that present the evolution of the artist's investigation of space.
The American artist Fred Sandback (1943-2003) worked with materials including metal, elastic cord and, later, acrylic yarn to delineate or bifurcate three-dimensional space, creating room-filling and volumetric forms. Using these most minimal of means allowed him "to play with something existing and not existing at the same time."

Riccardo Crespi presents DAVANTI (IN FRONT) the second solo show by the Italian artist Marta Sforni at the gallery. Marta Sforni's works, based on ornament and the appropriation of decorative objects, lead to a "revived" abstraction, through the meticulous study of detail. The mirror is the focus of the artist's recent works. It is a point of departure for a meditation on the pairs: object and reflection, observer and observed, depth and surface, light and darkness, recalling the tradition of western allegorical painting. On display are a series of small oil on canvas paintings and a selection from the new corpus of works, entitled Mirror. Sforni presents precisely limited portions of great mirrors, richly framed: a volute, a curl, a delicate ornament that interposes itself between the spectator and the endless space in the mirror. Her work is a glance over the shoulder, a vision of the future that cannot disregard the past.
Until April 28, 2018.

Marino Marini. Visual Passions is the first retrospective dedicated to Marino Marini (1901 - 1980) and it intends to contextualize Marini's work in a broader art historical context. The intimate galleries of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the exhibition's second venue after Palazzo Fabroni in Pistoia, allow an unprecedented, concentrated and close examination of more than fifty sculptures by Marino Marini. These are exhibited together with twenty additional works ranging from antiquity to the 20th century which lend comparison to Marini's work. The exhibition allows for an intensive dialogue between Marini's sculptures and those from the Italian plastic tradition which interested the artist-the great models of the 20th century and important examples of the sculptural tradition from past centuries: Egyptian, ancient Greek and Etruscan antiquities, Medieval, Renaissance and 19th-century sculpture which have never before been exhibited at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. Such dialogue offers a new and critically innovative point of view on the themes addressed by Marini, moving beyond the limits of chronology, styles and periods. Following Marini's artistic production from the 1920s to the 1950s, each room displays aspects of this dialogue. More than 70 works are exhibited in the temporary exhibition galleries as well as in the museum's Project Rooms and the adjoining veranda.
Curated by Barbara Cinelli and Flavio Fergonzi. January 27 - May 1, 2018.

Gravity. Immaginare l'Universo dopo Einstein / Gravity. Imaging the Universe after Einstein | MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Via Guido Reni - RomaSpace-time, crises, confines: an exploration via mutually dependent and interconnected key concepts on view at MAXXI.
In 1917, Albert Einstein published an article that gave rise to modern cosmology and transformed the models of the cosmos and the universe hitherto imagined by scientists and thinkers, revolutionising the concepts of time and space. One hundred years on from this publication, MAXXI is dedicating an exhibition to one of the figures to have had the greatest influence on contemporary thinking.
The project is the result of a unique collaboration between the museum, the Italian Space Agency and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics for the scientific side and the Argentine artists Tomás Saraceno for the artistic aspects.
Investigating the connections and the profound analogies between art and science, Gravity. Imaging the Universe after Einstein recounts the developments of the theory of relativity in the current vision of the universe and the fascinating spin-offs it is still producing in the field of art.
Through the involvement of international artists, the exhibition pays tribute to the scientist who radically altered our knowledge and perception of the universe.
Immersive artistic and scientific installations, iconic artefacts and simulations of experiments drawing us closer to the essence of the scientific innovations introduced by Einstein and revealing the underlying depths of the known universe, but also the mechanisms that bind together all those searching for knowledge, in a collective process in which artists and scientists play roles of equally fundamental significance to society.
Until 29 April 2018. Tue-Sun 11-19, Monday closed.

Realismo Magico. L'incanto nella pittura italiana degli anni Venti e Trenta | MART, Corso Bettini, 43 - 38068 Rovereto (TN)After "Umberto Boccioni" and "An Eternal Beauty", the season of great exhibitions dedicated to early twentieth century Italian art continues at Mart, Rovereto with Magic Realism Enchantment in Italian Painting in the 1920s and 1930s.
Constituting the first stage of the exhibition, that in 2018 will be at the Ateneum Art Museum, Helsinki and at the Folkwang Museum, Essen, Mart's great winter season exhibition will review the features of Magic Realism in Italy through a selection of painterly works of art from important public and private collections. Coined by critic Franz Roh in a famous essay dedicated to contemporary art (1925), the definition Magic Realism describes an international artistic season that reached its heights of creativity and originality between the twenties and thirties of the last century. This in a period that followed on from that of the historic avante-gardes, featuring a return to the pictorial and sculptural tradition. The objective representation emphasised by the term "realism" is accompanied, in this expression, by an adjective that evokes the suspended and surreal atmospheres that are a strong feature of the movement. Reality is in fact the point of departure for a transfiguration that goes by way of the imagination and marvellous wonderment, implemented by a group of artists featuring Cagnaccio di San Pietro, Felice Casorati, Antonio Donghi, Achille Funi, Carlo Levi and Ubaldo Oppi.
Until 2 April 2018. Tue-Sun 10am-18pm, Friday 10am-21pm. Monday closed.

Home Beirut Sounding the Neighbors | MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Via Guido Reni, 4/a - 00196 Roma The exhibition Home Beirut Sounding the Neighbors intends to put forward some of the most important trends of creative explorations of the contemporary reality intensively incarnated in the city's development and destiny. It will present some 36 artists, architects, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, researchers, activists with their diverse forms of expressions negotiating between critical reflections of recent history of conflicts, through archiving and re-enacting memories, and prospections of the future, through attempts of urban transformation and global outreaching, periodically interrupted by urgent problems and frustrations of the present.
It will be structured in several sections reflecting efforts to build homes in a highly complicated urban context to accommodate different intellectual claims and artistic imaginations as well as various political positions.
15 November 2017 - 20 May 2018. Closed Monday.

Corpo, movimento, struttura. Il gioiello contemporaneo e la sua costruzione / Body, movement, structure. Contemporary jewellery and its construction | MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Via Guido Reni, 4/a - 00196 Roma A piece of jewellery is an object open to multiple readings, the first traditionally being aesthetic, regarding both the intrinsic beauty of the work and the idea of beauty that a jewel succeeds in conveying and transmitting. Alongside this plane exists structural research, in which what counts is the complexity of the structure of the jewellery and therefore the idea and the form. Here jewellery design finds many factors in common with architecture: albeit with different ends and scales, jewellery and architecture both relate to the body in movement, to which they respond with a structure capable of "inhabiting" that body or allowing it to inhabit a space.
The exhibition Body, movement, structure. Contemporary jewellery and its construction explores this tie between the large and small scales, taking a new approach to certain features of the world of contemporary jewellery highlighted in the work of great international masters: Giampaolo Babetto, David Bielander, Helen Britton, Peter Chang, Monica Cecchi, Philip Sajet.

From the 7th October to the 26th November 2017, artworks and artists from all around the world meet in Ravenna in occasion of the 5th edition of RavennaMosaico - Rassegna Biennale di Mosaico Contemporaneo (Biennial exhibition of contemporary mosaic) promoted and organised by the Municipality of Ravenna.
Monuments, museums, cloisters and symbolic places of the city will become exceptional galleries where ancient and contemporary art will be in constant dialogue through exhibitions, presentations, meetings and specific installations.

For the 5th edition of RavennaMosaico, from 7th October 2017 to 7th January 2018 the MAR - Ravenna Art Museum hosts the exhibition Montezuma, Fontana, Mirko. La scultura in mosaico della origini a oggi: a comprehensive display on the relationship between sculpture and mosaic art to analyse and investigate the origins, evolution and the different varieties explored by artists from the 30s of the Twentieth Century. It was in that moment, after Gino Severini's renewed approach towards mosaic art with architectural purposes, that the plastic researches by Lucio Fontana and Mirko Basaldella took off. This virtuous creative circle was also inspired by some Mesoamerican items, thanks to the growing interest in Italy towards ancient Latin American art. In this framework the new exhibition at the MAR shows the different expressions of 20th/21st-Century sculpture in its relationship with mosaic art, an art that became a "specific genre" in the late 70s thanks to artists such as Antonio Trotta, Athos Ongaro, Chia and Paladino, and especially thanks to technical and technological innovations resulting from new synthetic materials. From the second half of the 80s to the present days artistic research and production have increased, paving the way for the last glimpse of the 20th Century. The phenomenon of sculpture and mosaic combined flourished, also thanks to the realisation in Ravenna of artworks of international relevance, such as Rudolf Nureyev's tomb in Paris, featuring artists of different backgrounds that will characterise as tout court mosaic sculptors.

On Sunday October 1st 2017, Textile as Art: Antonio Ratti, Entrepreneur and Patron will open at Palazzo Te in Mantua. The exhibition examines the life and work of Antonio Ratti, the Como industrialist who created both an internationally recognised textile company and foundation, equating production and creativity in business with art and culture.
The exhibition is produced by the Comune di Mantova and is curated by Lorenzo Benedetti, Annie Ratti, and Maddalena Terragni.
The life of Antonio Ratti weaves together business and art, creativity and cultural activities, public and private. Ratti's vision was founded on the idea that culture, knowledge and art are fundamental tools for understanding one's own time.
The exhibition intends to paint a portrait of this distinguished and elegant, multi-faceted and eclectic man who, by investing in the education of human resources and the valorisation of textiles as art, emphasized the quality of his textiles. High quality, experimentation and innovation are the defining characteristics that distinguish the work of Antonio Ratti. These characteristics are shown throughout the course of the exhibition by establishing a dialogue between Ratti's textiles and the monumental rooms of Palazzo Te, which then continues into the exhibition spaces of the Fruttiere.
Until 7 January 2018. Monday 13.00 - 19.30; Tuesday to Sunday 9.00 - 19.30. From 29 October 2017: Mondays 13.00 - 18.30; Tuesday to Sunday 9.00 - 18.30.

Vettor Pisani | Cardi Gallery, Corso di Porta Nuova 38 - 20121 Milano Cardi Gallery Milan, in collaboration with the Fondazione Morra in Naples, is delighted to present a major retrospective of Vettor Pisani, with works from the 1970s to the 2000s. The exhibition is curated by Piero Tomassoni. Achille Bonito Oliva has contributed an essay to the catalogue.
Eschewing conventional classification within the history of contemporary art, venturing well beyond the temporal and poetic limits of the 1970s, Vettor Pisani (Bari 1934-Rome 2011) considered himself to be an architect, painter, and playwright.
The works presented in this exhibition cover Pisani's entire career, over four decades. They showcase the breadth of media explored by the artist, from sculpture to installations, from collage to drawing to digital prints.
September 19-December 21, 2017. Mon-Fri 10-19.

Nan Goldin. The Ballad of Sexual Dependency | Triennale di Milano, Viale Alemagna 6 - 20121 Milano After the exhibition at MOMA Nan Goldin arrives at Triennale. Comprising almost 700 snapshot-like portraits sequenced against an evocative music soundtrack, Nan Goldin's The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a deeply personal narrative, formed out of the artist's own experiences around Boston, New York, Berlin, and elsewhere in the late 1970s, 1980s, and beyond.
Titled after a song in Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera, Goldin's Ballad is itself a kind of downtown opera; its protagonists-including the artist herself-are captured in intimate moments of love and loss. They experience ecstasy and pain through sex and drug use; they revel at dance clubs and bond with their children at home; and they suffer from domestic violence and the ravages of AIDS. «The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is the diary I let people read», Goldin wrote. «The diary is my form of control over my life. It allows me to obsessively record every detail. It enables me to remember». The Ballad developed through multiple improvised live performances, for which Goldin ran through the slides by hand and friends helped prepare the soundtrack-from Maria Callas to The Velvet Underground-for an audience not unlike the subjects of the pictures. The Ballad is presented in its original 35mm format, along with photographs that also appear as images in the slide show. Introducing the installation is a selection of materials from the artist's archive, including posters and flyers announcing early iterations of The Ballad.
On view through November 26, 2017.

Zaha Hadid in Italy | MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Via Guido Reni, 4 - 00196 RomaOne of the most influential and visionary architects of our times, Zaha Hadid has redefined the architecture of the twenty-first century and captured the imagination of the whole world.
One year since her untimely death, MAXXI is devoting to her The exhibition Zaha Hadid in Italy. Focusing on Hadid's projects in Italy, the exhibition highlights her intense and productive relationship with our country, presenting projects and works created by means of various instruments of representation, research, and experimentation that she honed in the course of her career; from pictorial and conceptual sketches to three-dimensional models, from virtual representations to the more recent interdisciplinary studies addressed to the application of new solutions and technologies, in a pioneering effort of investigation in design.
The exhibition presents a portrait of Hadid's multifarious personality, it is conceived as a walk through; starting from the built work and projects in design development in Italy, to product design. The gaze of Hélène Binet, a photographer who has been one of the most mindful of Hadid's production over the years, interprets the strength and the dynamism of the architecture with a series of intense photographs that provide new details of her works. The constant drive towards an interdisciplinary search for new design methods is also presented in the sections dedicated to CoDe (Computational Design) and to ZHA Design DNA, a window on the creative legacy that the studio has fully welcomed. To paraphrase Zaha Hadid, there should be no end to experimentation.
23 June 2017 - 14 January 2018. Monday closed.

An Eternal Beauty | Mart di Rovereto, Corso Bettini 43 - 38068 Rovereto (TN)An Eternal Beauty. The Classical Canon in Early 20th Century Italian Art.
The return-to-order climate in Europe devastated by the First World War brought forth artistic ventures and movements - Metaphysical art, the experiences surrounding "Valori Plastici", the Novecento italiano, and the poetics of Magical realism - that sought to recover and reaffirm themes and formal solutions from the artistic tradition. Allegorical subjects, portraits, figures, landscapes and still-lifes were interpreted in a new idiom providing a modern rendition of the values of ancient and Renaissance art. Technical knowledge gained the status of a tool for representing and transfiguring the real in search of a timeless, oneiric dimension.Featuring absolute masterpieces from the early twentieth century, The exhibition traces an itinerary among the works of the masters of Italian art who looked to the past and its classic canon as sources of inspiration. It presents over one hundred works by some of the major protagonists of Italian art: Carrà, Casorati, De Chirico, De Pisis, Savinio, Severini, Sironi as well as Bucci, Cagnaccio, Donghi, Dudreville, Funi, Malerba, Martini, Marussig, Oppi and Wildt.

/Uncinematic. George Drivas | Body To Body | Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Viale delle Belle Arti, 131 - RomaThe Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea presents the exhibition /Uncinematic. George Drivas, a selection of filmic works made between 2005 and 2014 by the Greek artist George Drivas, who currently represents Greece at the 57th Venice Biennale, 2017.
Drivas creates narrative videos based on motionlessness, and in most of his works he makes use of a remarkable sequence of images which he alternates rhythmically so as to bring to the foreground the underlying link that has always joined photography and cinema, causing the fertile connections that unite static image and dynamic image underneath to resonate.
The Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea presents the exhibition Body To Body, curated by Paola Ugolini.
The exhibition analyses the exact moment when the artist's work is characterized by the appropriation of new languages that range from dance to the event, from the happening to theatre, from painting to music, from theory to sculpture, and from cinema to video. Within these complex cultural events, the exhibition aims to cut out only the space in which the artist, having left behind the traditional art forms, uses his/her body as a means of expression. Artists: Claudio Abate, Marina Abramovic e Ulay, Renate Bertlmann, Tomaso Binga, Claire Fontaine, Chiara Fumai, Silvia Giambrone, Goldschmied & Chiari, Sanja Ivekovic, Ketty La Rocca, Valentina Miorandi, Gina Pane, Suzanne Santoro, Alice Schivardi, Francesca Woodman.

Giuseppe Gabellone Fondazione Memmo presents Giuseppe Gabellone's first solo exhibition in Rome, curated by Francesco Stocchi, thereby confirming its mission to promote contemporary art through site-specific creations and new works. Characterized by a strong formal rigor and a critical approach to traditional artistic media such as photography and sculpture, Gabellone's work is particularly sensitive to the surrounding exhibition space and its various sensory aspects. The artist's approach is a continuation of the tradition of great sculpture's innovators, such as Medardo Rosso, Umberto Boccioni and Arturo Martini: by emphasizing the dynamic relationships between light and shadow, full and empty, the artist expands the concept of sculpture to other techniques and practices, addressing the central issues that arise from his activity, especially in those areas where the mediated experience attempts to replace direct perception.

La Terra Inquieta / The Restless Earth The Restless Earth / La Terra Inquieta curated by Massimiliano Gioni borrows its title from a collection of poems by Édouard Glissant, a Caribbean writer who probed the question of how different cultures can coexist.
The exhibition shares in Glissant's project-a pressing and necessary one that tries to describe this unstable and agitated present as a polyphony of voices and narratives.
Through the works of more than sixty artists from more than forty countries-such as Albania, Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, Ghana, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, and Turkey-and with historical documents and objects of material culture, this exhibition charts both experiences and perceptions of migration and the current refugee crisis as an epoch-making transformation that is reframing contemporary history, geography, and culture.
The exhibition is open to the public from April 28 to August 20, 2017.

From the Cavern to the Moon. A journey through the collection of the Pecci Centre There are two paths into the exhibition From the Cavern to the Moon. A journey through the collection of the Pecci Centre between the large wing of the new museum building and half of the old edifice. They are dialogically divided into eight sections and are linked to spectacular substantiations through unreleased reports and original comparisons among the works which-time after time-include or avoid philological combinations of artistic genres, stylistic groups or historical chronologies. They illustrate the first part of the contemporary art heritage collected by the Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art over the last three decades which will finally be presented to the audience. On this occasion, works by 60 Italian and international artists represent a non-exhaustive yet particularly significant summary of art from the last half century. This new exhibition presents an itinerary through artistic forms that occupy and become part of the environment; an experience which seems a true immersion among works of art that develop and repeat over time in the form of videos, actions and performances. The exhibition develops between the ancestral time evoked by the legendary Caverna dell'antimateria by Pinot Gallizio and the cosmic space of Luna by Fabio Mauri, passing through the energy proliferation that emerges in La spirale appare by Mario Merz, the feasible habitat of Supersuperficie imagined by Superstudio, the integration between art and architecture experimented in Intercamera plastica by Paolo Scheggi.

Words and Stars (2013-16) is a project born in 2013, when the Nobel prize-winner Orhan Pamuk, fascinated by the work of Grazia Toderi, invited the artist to create a work for his Museum of Innocence in Istanbul. The research and the exchange of words, sources and images that underpin the project focus on humanity's inclination to explore space and its innate propensity to investigate the stars.
More than three years of conversations, encounters and correspondence have resulted in the realization of a project that hybridizes languages. A continuous process, in search of the affinities between the complexity of metaphysical questions and the simplicity of the joy of gazing at the stars. Against the background of Istanbul at night, the love of Füsun and Kemal, protagonists of The Museum of Innocence, evokes constellations and words.

Time is Out of Joint | > 15 APR. 2018 | Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Viale delle Belle Arti, 131 - 00197 Roma The Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea has started a new chapter in its history with the exhibition Time is Out of Joint. The display is part of a wide process - initiated on June 21, 2016 and lead by Director Cristiana Collu - aimed at transforming, rearranging, and renovating the museum, which now offers the public totally renewed spaces and a profound reinterpretation of its collection.
Thanks to the institutional autonomy granted by the latest reform of the Italian Culture Ministry (MiBACT), the Galleria Nazionale presents itself as a place for discover and research, contemplation and reflection upon art languages and practices and upon the role of a contemporary museum.
The exhibition, whose title quotes a verse from William Shakespeare's Hamlet - "The time is out of joint" - investigates the notion of time in its fluidity, non-linearity, and stratification; a fragmented time which seems to embody art historian Hans Belting's dilemma "the end of the history of art, or art's freedom."

The Uninhabitants Riccardo Crespi gallery and Opifici Dal Re present The Uninhabitants, an exhibition that stands on the borderline between art and design and is based on a group of works whose formal characteristics would make it easy to assign them to the area of the domestic, the world of inhabiting.
The artists' works all suggest a connection with corresponding objects of everyday use, but the doors Patrizia Giambi and Patrizia Dal Re have created, like Gal Weinstein's disintegrating kitchen, display, on close examination, a quite different vocation that betrays an urge to un-inhabit rather than to inhabit: doors that do not protect, nor separate, a kitchen in which you can't cook, an alcove that offers no privacy. Instead of conveying a reassuring sense of hearth and home, once they have emerged from the artist's studio the works reveal their inability to function, thereby showing the fundamental divergence between the meanings implied in the creation of a work and its actual use.
Until 20 May 2017.

L'emozione dei COLORI nell'arte For thousands of years we ground rocks, crushed flowers, and boiled small bugs to extract from them particles detached from their original "thingness"; we called them pigments and we made them stable through mixing them with various other elements in order to reproduce the colors of flowers, of fish, of butterflies, in our human world-so poor in color diversity, so rich in analytical thinking. We did this so that we could paint, so that we could dye, so that we could signal, so that we could decorate, so that we could seduce, so that we could love.
Although, or perhaps because, colors are used to manipulate, design, and control behavior, can we muddle them up, play and produce a different logic, a different color than that of our screens?
"They needed colored fire, and had only ground earths," Annie Besant wrote of visual artists in 1905. Now that we have only colored fire and liquid crystals, we need new tools. When bombs fall, the differently colored animate and inanimate things that make up our cities, streets, homes, people, and gardens fall into rubble; they mix until they reach an entropic shade of brownish gray. And so Henri Matisse, in the middle of World War I, and again in the middle of World War II, painted paintings of lively, vital color. Etel Adnan, in late 2016, stated "color is life. And as long as we live, we are alive."
L'emozione dei COLORI nell'arte will be on view at Castello di Rivoli and at GAM from March 14 to July 23, 2017.

Sobre la sangre Teresa Margolles is a visual artist, who examines the causes and social consequences of death, destruction and civil war in Mexico. The artist has developed a personal language like an intradiegetic narrator, a witness for the silent subjects and the victims defined as "collateral damage," often unnamed and therefore treated only as a number. Subtle and seductive, her works initially offer a pleasant aesthetic experience, which soon, however, becomes something else.
The exhibition Sobre la sangre is part of this context of gender violence and comprises the touring installation Frazada (La Sombra) .
The installation is made of a sheet mounted on a 1.9m high metal structure usually used for market stalls. The sheet was salvaged from the morgue at La Paz and it is soaked with the blood of a female victim of femicide, causing discomfort to anyone who uses its shade to get relief from the heat on sunny days, as they only gradually become aware of the strong odour of blood emanating from it.

Cecilia Bertoni. Round midnight / ritratti (round midnight / portraits) Video installation is an adaptation and development of one of the videos shown originally at the eponymous performance by the director and artist Cecilia Bertoni, presented by Compagnia Dello Scompiglio in 2016.
In the video we see the portraits of the five performers.
On view from March 25 to June 25, 2017. Hours: Thursday-Saturday 2-6pm.

Bill Viola. Electronic Renaissance From March 10 to July 23, 2017 the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi will be introducing the Florentine public to Bill Viola. Electronic Renaissance, a significant exhibition celebrating this unchallenged master of video art. A single, comprehensive exhibition occupying both the Piano Nobile and the Strozzina will immerse you in space, music and sound as you track the career of this artist from his early experimental work in the 1970s right up to his monumental installations of the 21st century.
Exploring spirituality, experience and perception, Viola probes humanity: people, bodies and faces are the leading players in his work with its poetic and strongly symbolic style in which man interacts with the forces and energies of nature such as water and fire, light and dark, the cycle of life and the cycle of rebirth.
But more importantly, the Renaissance setting of Palazzo Strozzi fuels mesmerising interaction between the classic and the contemporary by fostering innovative dialogue between Viola's work and the masterpieces of the great masters of the past, from which he has drawn his inspiration and which have marked the development of his artistic vocabulary and style.
Thus the exhibition is a celebration of Bill Viola's special relationship with Florence, where his career in video art began when he was technical director of art/tapes/22, a video production and documentation centre, from 1974 to 1976.

Focus. Mario Sironi in the Allaria Collection Born during the postwar era from the friendship between Mario Sironi and Antonio Allaria, physician at the Codivilla Putti hospital in Cortina d'Ampezzo, the collection, now in Rovereto thanks to the deposit from Alessandra Allaria, reinforces Sironi's already significant presence in the Mart collections.
Organized by thematic nuclei, the exhibition Focus. Mario Sironi in the Allaria Collection features a large group of drawings and paintings by Sironi that allows the artist's most intimate dimension to emerge, delineating several key points in his artistic enquiry: from the earliest dalliances with Futurism to the modern classicism of the Novecento group to the most mature phase of his work. Completing the exhibition are monographic rooms dedicated to Anton Zoran Mušic, Renato Guttuso and Graham Sutherland, also linked to Allaria through friendship, in a comparison between the works on deposit and the masterpieces of the same artists from the museum's permanent collection. The exhibition ends with a varied selection of graphic works by, among others, Filippo de Pisis, Giorgio Morandi and Giorgio de Chirico, giving visitors a glimpse of the vibrant cultural atmosphere of Cortina, back when it was frequented by artists and art lovers.
Until 11 June 2017.

A meticulous selection of portraits from the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome has been curated to comprise the group of contestants for a beauty contest, directed by Spanish-born, New York-based artist Paco Cao. The selection of the contestants involved the active participation of the entire museum staff, from the director to the curatorial, education, and restoration teams, with special attention given to the security guards, considering their daily and constant relationship with the works of art. The beauty contest has established two categories: male and female; the objective is to select the most beautiful person in each category, based on physical appearance, demeanor, and attitude, independently of the style or technical quality of the works. The jury is the audience. In the competing line-up are portraits from the early 19th century to the late 20th century, created by masters ranging from Giorgio de Chirico to Vincent van Gogh, Umberto Boccioni, Giovanni Boldini, Vincenzo Gemito, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Vittorio Corcos and Amedeo Modigliani, as well as lesser-known and anonymous artists.

Annette Messager. Messaggera From February 10 to April 23, 2017 the French Academy in Rome - Villa Medici will host the first solo exhibition in Italy by Annette Messager, one of the most famous, innovative and nonconformist French artists on the contemporary art scene.
Internationally speaking the exhibition is already looking like one of the big cultural events of the season. Titled Messaggera, the show combines the most remarkable works of a prestigious career with new ones specially created for the Villa. Taken together they testify to the eclecticism of an artist who makes nonchalant play with references both to art history and popular culture.
With Annette Messager, and at the instigation of director Muriel Mayette-Holtz, the French Academy in Rome - Villa Medici is initiating Une, its new series of contemporary art exhibitions, curated by Chiara Parisi: women artists internationally famed as contemporary icons will be presenting major shows with works for the most part not seen in Italy before. Each exposition will highlight the expressive force of the artist's project and their vision. Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10am-7pm.

Fondazione Prada presents Slight Agitation 2/4: Pamela Rosenkranz, the second iteration of a four-part project of newly commissioned, site-specific works hosted in sequence within the Cisterna, one of the pre-existing buildings at Fondazione Prada's Milan venue.
The title of the project was inspired by the poetic expression "une légère agitation," employed by the French historian Fernand Braudel to describe the tidal movement of the Mediterranean.
Pamela Rosenkranz' work explores how physical and biological processes affect art. Her forthcoming installation Infection is based on a neuro-active parasite, of which an estimated 30% of the world's population is affected. A huge, almost sublime mountain of sand is formed inside the Cisterna's tall spaces. Its scale pressuring against the historic architecture. The sand is impregnated with fragrance of synthetic cat pheromones that activates a specific, biologically determined attraction or repulsion and subconsciously influence the public's movement. RGB green light illuminates the peak of this chemically altered nature gently evaporating the scent.

Lili Reynaud-Dewar TEETH GUMS MACHINES FUTURE SOCIETY | > 07 MAY 2017 | MUSEION of Modern and Contemporary Art Bolzano, Piazza Piero Siena, 1 - 39100 Bolzano Lili Reynaud-Dewar (La Rochelle, France, 1975) opens Museion's 2017 exhibition programme. Hailed as one of the most original artists on the contemporary scene, Reynaud-Dewar explores the sexual, racial and political conditioning and stereotypes that influence our cultural identity. The spacious areas on the fourth floor of the museum play host to installations, film works, videos and objects which revolve around two main themes. On one hand it explores the human body, or rather a particular, intimate element of it: teeth. In a film and performance piece set in Memphis, a city known for its racial and social conflicts, the artist explores stories, practices and identities that gravitate around grills, the teeth decorations that are a status symbol in rap and hip hop culture. Another key element of the show is the essay "A Cyborg Manifesto" published by Donna Haraway in 1985.
Lili Reynaud-Dewar TEETH GUMS MACHINES FUTURE SOCIETY runs until May 7, 2017. Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10am-6pm, Thursday 10am-10pm.

Fashion in Florence through the lens of Archivio Foto Locchi | > 05 MAR. 2017 | Palazzo Pitti - Firenze One of Florence's leading photography archives opens its treasures to the city with the first single-subject exhibition.
On 9 January 2017, Fashion in Florence through the lens of Archivio Foto Locchi will open in Palazzo Pitti's Andito degli Angiolini: 100 very rare pictures taken from the 1930s to '70s tell the story of fashion in Florence through the lens of the photographers of Foto Locchi. The project stems from a collaboration between Archivio Storico Foto Locchi (a cultural patrimony of priceless value comprising more than five million photographs), director of the Uffizi Galleries Eike Schmidt, the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana - thanks to which the exhibition will be inaugurated with an event during the 91st edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo - and the Gruppo Editoriale publishing group, with the intention of promoting the importance of the photography archive and paying tribute to the historic connection between Florence and fashion.
The Florentine maisons that birthed the modern history of Italian fashion such as Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci told by their founders and the celebrities who made them fashion around the world. The deus ex machina of the great Italian designers who showed their collections in the Sala Bianca: Roberto Capucci, Emilio Schuberth, Sorelle Fontana and Simonetta Colonna di Cesarò. Celebrities who had no qualms about taking a chance alongside Giovanni Battista Giorgini and who revolutionized modern Italian clothing starting in Florence. In addition to the special guests who flew in from Paris, like Christian Dior and Elsa Schiaparelli, the foreign aristocracy such as the Duke of Windsor and fated Hollywood stars, from Audrey Hepburn to Paulette Goddard and the divine Maria Callas.

Umberto Boccioni. Genio e memoria | > 19 FEB. 2017 | MART Rovereto, Corso Bettini 43, 38068 - Rovereto (TN) On the centennial of Umberto Boccioni's death (1882-1916), the City of Milan and Mart of Rovereto celebrate the artist with two exhibitions highlighting his artistic path and international calibre with the aid of previously unpublished archival materials. The exhibition at Palazzo Reale (23 March - 10 July 2016) will be echoed by the grand exhibition at Mart (5 November 2016 - 19 February 2017). Umberto Boccioni (1882-1916): Genius and Memory is a project offering a selective itinerary through the visual sources that contributed to Boccioni's artistic training and stylistic development. After Milan, Umberto Boccioni's oeuvre is explored in Rovereto by juxtaposing it with the works of his contemporaries, many coming from the MART collections, and with invaluable archival materials. The exhibition dialogues with the exhibitory work of the Casa d'Arte Futurista Depero and is amplified by the international research of the Archive of the 20th Century, home to the International Futurism Study Centre.

Eliseo Mattiacci | > 12 MAR. 2017 | MaRT Rovereto, Corso Bettini 43 - 38068 Rovereto TNAfter the solo exhibitions by Giuseppe Penone and Robert Morris, the Mart exhibition season continues with an ambitious project dedicated to the work of the italian sculptor Eliseo Mattiacci (1940). Passing the baton among artists of the same generation, the project continues the exploration of sources and forms in contemporary sculpture.
The exhibition expresses a dialogue between the artist and the Mart interiors: a selection of works-most of them large format-retraces the career of the sculptor in the spacious museum galleries.
The powerfully evocative retrospective presents works that have rarely been exhibited before, such as Locomotiva (Locomotive) (1964), works presented at the 1972 Venice Biennale, and sculptures whose size and complexity make them nearly impossible to install in an ordinary gallery, such as Motociclista (Motorcyclist) (1981), La mia idea del cosmo (My Idea of the Cosmos) (2001) and Piattaforma esplorativa (Exploration Platform) (2008) .
The exhibition is curated by Gianfranco Maraniello, director of Mart.

A fundamental phase in Fortunato Depero's artistic quest involves the body and how it is expressed: anticipating the concept of performance art by several decades, the futurist artists staged pseudo-theatrical exhibitions involving improvisation and audience engagement. The body as an instrument of political action is, on the other hand, a leitmotif that recurs in many works from the Sixties and Seventies, well documented in the materials found in the Archive of the 20th Century.
The exhibition Performance. Private body and social body will be on view until 7 May 2017.

Retrospettiva a luce solida ("Retrospective in solid light") is the title of the monographic exhibition dedicated by Madre museum to Fabio Mauri (Rome, 1926-2009) on November, masterful exponent of the neo-avantgardes of the second half of the 20th Century, whose artistic practice - turning on the exploration of the mechanisms of' ideology and languages of propaganda, as well as the collective imagination and the structures of media narratives, especially film - places him among the greatest and more seminal contemporary artists internationally. Organized in close collaboration with the Studio Fabio Mauri, the exhibition is the fullest ever dedicated to the artist since the retrospective, in 1994, at the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna in Rome. Within a layout specifically designed for the individual spaces of the museum, it will present more than a hundred works, installations, actions and documents, that explore modern and contemporary history through its conflicts and contradictions and find their intellectual and emotional fulcrum in the intrinsic relationship between the historical and ethical dimensions. 26 November 2016 - 6 March 2017.

At the same time as the exhibition at the Madre, from October 7th, 2016, to January 15th, 2017, the GAMeC - Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Bergamo will be hosting a different retrospective devoted to the artist, which, together with the exhibition in Naples and complementing it, will help to present an exhaustive profile of his research.

From November 23, 2016 to February 26, 2017, UBS and Milan's Galleria d'Arte Moderna will be hosting Rear Window. Glimpses of Private Collections.
Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, this exhibition investigates the idea of private collectors by establishing a dialogue between artworks from different Italian contemporary art collections - the Panza di Biumo Collection and the Berlingieri collection - and the permanent oeuvres of the Galleria d'Arte Moderna. By weaving unusual connections between modern, contemporary and nineteenth century artists - from Christo, Dan Flavin, Joseph Kosuth, Giulio Paolini, Richard Serra to Giovanni Fattori, Francesco Hayez, Edouard Manet and Giorgio Morandi - the show draws together apparently fragmented events into one big narrative that defines the visitor's "field of vision" and recalls the atmospheres of Hitchcock's famous film "Rear Window", from which the exhibit borrows its title.

Luigi Carboni: La forma, un attimo prima. On show will be new works by the artist with an extremely intricate interweaving of marks that condense and disperse over the surface, to the point of creating perspectival planes and a total absence of traditional space. The large-scale oils and acrylics on canvas are flanked by works of smaller dimensions that allude to three-dimensionality and that use geometric forms held captive by a reticular painting.
Back to the Land curated by Andrea Lerda. On show will be presented several works by Italian and international artists: Andreco, Cristian Chironi, Neha Choksi, Andrea Nacciarriti, Giorgia Severi, Francesco Simeti, Julius Von Bismarck. This is not simply an exhibition but a further step along a virtual path that for some time, at a global level, has singled out contemporary art as a tool for bringing to the fore ecological questions and for stimulating environmental ideas.

Joseph Beuys. La Tenda Verde (Das Grüne Zelt/The Green Tent) curated by Marco Scotini, may be seen as the third chapter of an ideal trilogy, completing the cycle of exhibitions with which the PAV aimed to reconstruct a genealogy of the relationship between the artistic practices and the ecological consciousness in Europe during the 1970s. After the exhibitions "Earthrise" (2015) and "ecologEast" (2016), this project will focus on the activity of one of the most recognized artists from the second half of the last century: Joseph Beuys, putting a particular emphasis on his involvement with the political institutions and his response to the threats of environmental crisis. The exhibition, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of Beuys' death, wants to become a tribute to the author of the "social sculpture," within the institution founded by Piero Gilardi, who was the first to write about Beuys in Italy, as early as in 1967.

Time is Out of Joint | > 15 APR. 2018 | Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Viale delle Belle Arti, 131 - 00197 Roma The retrospective of Wael Shawky (Alexandria, Egypt, 1971), held at the Castello di Rivoli, presents a series of film works, sculptures, and new wooden high-reliefs inspired by the Crusades and narrated from an Arab rather than a European point of view.
The artist transforms the space of the Manica Lunga, whose walls have been painted blue, into a spectacular stage design. "Visitors - writes Marcella Beccaria - are swept off into the distant past, the echoes of which are nonetheless recognizable in our unstable present of Middle Eastern wars and new uncertainties".
The trilogy treats the issue of history and human events overwhelmed by ambition and rivalry, by betrayal and violence.

BOOM 60! Era arte moderna / BOOM 60 - Modern Art Era | > 12 MAR. 2017 | Museo del Novecento, Via Marconi, 1 - Milano The Museo del Novecento and Electa Publishers present BOOM 60! Era arte moderna (BOOM 60 - Modern Art Era), curated by Mariella Milan and Desdemona Ventroni, in collaboration with Maria Grazia Messina and Antonello Negri. The exhibition is devoted to Italian art between the early 1950's and the early 1960's, with a special focus on its coverage in the most popular communication media of the time, notably magazines and newspapers. These were the years of the Italian economic boom, when 'illustrated news magazines', such as Epoca, Le Ore, and L'Europeo just to cite a few, reached their peak circulation and faithfully mirrored people's aspirations and common way of thinking. The themes of art - whether it was a criticism of abstract art or new materials, or the praise of portrait, or photos of successful artists - were intertwined with the coverage of celebrities from the world of cinema, television, music. In the setup devised by Atelier Mendini, approximately one hundred and fifty works including paintings, sculptures and graphic artworks, will dialogue with pages from magazines and television and cinematographic footage, where artists are transformed into real stars: from immortal Picasso to Bernard Buffet, "the painter in a Rolls Royce"; at the time protagonist of the chronicles of art and gossip. A rich documentary section will feature the various magazines and their way of illustrating art, from cover pages to interviews, from critics columns to advertisements, from photojournalism to satire.
Until March 12, 2017.

Judith Hopf, Up | > 08 JAN. 2017 | Museion. Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea, iazza Piero Siena 1 - 39100 Bolzano Museion presents the first solo show in an Italian museum by Judith Hopf (Karlsruhe, 1969).
Her works stand out for the playful spirit with which they deconstruct certainties and undermine social parameters and conventions; an ironic, self-deprecating awareness of human limits, and the use of slapstick, a deliberately amateurish language and simple, basic materials. These are the elements that characterise the work of Judith Hopf, invited by Museion for the unique position she occupies within the globalized, hyper-connected art world. The exhibition Up, which occupies the Passage area and the fourth floor of the museum, presents more than 30 works by the artist including videos, sculptures and drawings.
Until January 8, 2017. Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10am-6pm, Thursday 10am-10pm.

Maurizio Donzelli: INVISIBILE-NO | > 14 JAN. 2017 | Galleria Marignana Arte, Dorsoduro, 141 - Rio Terà dei Catecumeni angolo con calle Lanza nei pressi della chiesa della Salute - 30123 Venezia The exhibition Figurative Geometry brings together works by nine artists who can be thought to represent abstraction or, equally, to abstract representation.
To these ends, geometry and figuration are intermingled; shapes are shifted, geometry bends around itself, patterns emerge, while figuration refers to bodies in space-bodies which come forward and recede-as well as to numbers and their temporal register, for example, to the number of seconds in a day.
Time is also one of the subjects of this show. All of these works have been hand-painted, in some cases wet-into-wet, having to be completed in a single session, and although they exist primarily in two dimensions, the paintings-as well as the drawings-must also be considered as time-based. Because many of them reveal their contents only gradually rather than immediately, an element of time exists between the image and its reception, between the viewer and the work.
For some of these artists, their primary means is painting. For others, painting is one aspect of their practice.
October 16, 2016-April 2, 2017.

Aldo Mondino. Modern, Post-Modern, Contemporary | > 27 NOV. 2016 | Museo d'Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce - Via J. Ruffini, 3 - 16126 11 years after Aldo Mondino's death (Turin, 1938-2005), Villa Croce Museum, in collaboration with the Aldo Mondino Archive and Palazzo della Meridiana, presents Aldo Mondino. Modern, Post-Modern, Contemporary. This comprehensive exhibition, curated by Ilaria Bonacossa, develops in two Genovese museums presenting more then 40 years of sculptures, painting and installations which are so diverse, that they seemed produced by many different artists. The Museum Villa Croce presents his first production and a series of environmental installations. Focusing on his Pop production and on the numerous works created with sweets and chocolate as a personal response to Arte Povera that was developing in Turin. Palazzo della Meridiana instead unites series of important paintings that recount his passionate journeys in the Mediterranean basin. The show leads the viewer in a surprising walk through six different Genoese museums where six site-specific installations transform our perception of the city and its history.
The exhibition thus becomes a sort of treasure-hunt that, from the neoclassical rooms of Villa Croce, pushes us to discover the medieval home of Christopher Columbus, surprises us with the monumental grandeur of Palazzo Ducale, leads us inside the ball rooms of the famous Palazzi di Strada Nuova; after having guided us on the terraces of the Royal Palace overlooking the sea, it plunges us underwater in Renzo Piano's Aquarium, finally leading us to the Art Nouveau glass-dome of Palazzo della Meridiana.

Ai Weiwei is known world-wide as much for his challenging contemporary art practice as for his political activism. The full exhibition Ai Weiwei.

MAXXI, together with Deutsche Bank, presents The Stars Were Aligned For a Century of New Beginnings the first exhibition in Italy devoted to Basim Magdy: over 30 works, produced between 2006 and 2016, by the Egyptian artist, winner of Deutsche Bank's "Artist of the Year" prize in 2016.
The works of Basim Magdy emanate a strange tragicomic glee: what makes them so otherworldly is the use of hypnotic music, acid colours and the antiquated flavour of the texts with which the artist creates narrations that leave endings open.
A view of reality that invites reflection, accepting contradictions and refuting dogmas.

Luna di latte | Museo MADRE | 03 OCT. 2016 | Via Settembrini, 79 - Napoli The Madre museum in Naples is pleased to announce Attesa. 1960-2016, the most comprehensive retrospective exhibition ever dedicated to the artistic research of Mimmo Jodice (Naples, 1934), one of the undisputed masters of contemporary photography. The exhibition, curated by Andrea Viliani, presents more than 100 works, from the seminal experiments with photographic language conducted in the '60s and '70s down to a final series "Attesa" (Waiting, 2015), produced specially for this retrospective project. June 24-October 24, 2016.

The moon has always affected our planet, our moods, our imagination and our history. Ever since ancient times the moon has been a symbol of fertility and favorable auspices, but also of mystery and melancholy. Camille Henrot's (Paris, 1978) exhibition Luna di latte at the Madre museum, curated by Cloé Perrone, explores the cultural and symbolic significance attached to Monday, or "moon day." The exhibited works - 100 drawings and collages, seven sculptural sketches in various media and mural paintings - are a selection of preparatory material for Monday, Henrot's exhibition at the Fondazione Memmo in Rome, a project that will develop to comprise all the days of the week at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, in autumn 2017.

Fondazione Prada is presenting Edward Kienholz: Five Car Stud, open to the public in Milan from May 19 through December 31, 2016 and curated by Germano Celant. The exhibition brings together 26 artworks realized between 1959 to 1994 by Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, including the well-known installation that gives the show its title.
A life-sized reproduction of a scene of racial violence, Five Car Stud is considered one of the American artist's most significant works. Despite the controversy and attention that it earned from critics right from its debut, the piece remained hidden from view in the storage of a Japanese collector for almost 40 years.
Five Car Stud catapults the viewer into a nightmarish situation, immersing him and her in a dimension-either removed or forgotten-of extreme violence. More than 40 years after it was first created, the artwork's expressive force, its powerful symbolic charge and the lucidity of the accusation against racial persecution retain their original strength.

The exhibition layout presents four sections, enriched by videos and photo projections and by the special project Inside Out by JR, installed in the museum square. Through October 23, 2016

BENVENUTO! Sislej Xhafa is a visual journey through the complexity of the modern world in which each work encourages the observer to reflect, both in personal and collective terms, on the social, economic and political phenomena of our world.
The exhibition's title is taken from the major installation created by the artist in 2000 within the ambit of the Arte all'Arte project in the Casole d'Elsa hills near Siena. A gigantic script Benvenuto (Welcome), an invitation to openness, to the embracing of others understood as necessary, inevitable progress that over time leads to social and cultural change.
The exhibition comprises 30 works, spanning his career from the 1990s through to the present, including a new work the artist has created especially for this show. MAXXI is presenting the full range of his artistic output that draws inspiration from the contradictions of contemporary reality.

Fondation Louis Vuitton Building in Paris by Frank Gehry. Con l'intervento di Daniel Buren | Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia | > 26 NOV. 2016 | calle del Ridotto 1353 - 30124 Venezia During the opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in October 2014, Frank Gehry said "I dream of designing a magnificent vessel for Paris that symbolises France's profound cultural vocation".
Frank Gehry . Building in Paris with the participation of Daniel Buren is on view at Espace Louis Vuitton Venice, in the heart of Venice. This collaboration will retrace the story of Frank Gehry's dream, offering an immersion into the creative world of the Canadian-American architect.
The exhibition presents a selection of scale models created during the project by the Gehry Partners Studio. The models are organised by groups to retrace studies for various aspects of the Fondation Louis Vuitton including the integration in the site, architectural programme, project design, interior spaces, the "icebergs" and the glass sails. The models are grouped together to evoke schools of fish, which is a favourite symbol of Frank Gehry. The exhibition design creates the impression that the works float in a liquid atmosphere. This dynamic movement is further enhanced through a video which offers a non-anthropometric vision of the building.

The Forte Belvedere in Florence is getting set to host this year's edition of its annual fixture with great art. Following the two international exhibitions showcasing the art of Giuseppe Penone and Antony Gormley, the former Medici fortress' bastions this year will be hosting the works of Jan Fabre, one of the most innovative and important figures on the contemporary art scene. A "total" artist, Fabre, who born in Antwerp in 1958, lets his imagination run riot in the very different spheres of sculpture, drawing and installation, performance art, film and the theatre.
The exhibition, entitled Jan Fabre. Spiritual Guards, promoted by the Comune di Firenze, will pan out between the Forte Belvedere, Palazzo Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria. In fact, it will be one of the most complex and multifaceted exhibitions that this Flemish artist and author has ever produced in any public space in Italy. For the very first time, a living artist will be expounding his art in three venues of outstanding historical and artistic importance at once. Roughly one hundred of Fabre's works dating from 1978 to 2016 will be on display, including bronze and wax sculptures, performance films and works made of wing cases of the jewel scarab. Fabre will also be presenting two new works specifically devised and produced for this occasion.
Until 2 October.

Passo Dopo Passo (Step by Step) seeks to examine diverse-both historical and contemporary-artworks and artistic practices that reflect on the status of movement, openness and enclosure, fear and expectations. The exhibition is linked to an Italian perspective-that of a country with an intrinsic relationship to questions of migration.
Considering historical precedents, the exhibition draws on several books by Fortunato Depero (b. 1892), an artist and designer affiliated with the Futurist movement. Personal notebooks, manuscripts, and published books reveal the artist's optimism associated with modernism, his personal transatlantic ambitions, as well as the potential of new social order despite crippling violence within the systemic socio-political ruptures of the 1930s and '40s.

Marcello Morandini. Architetture d'arte | Marignana Arte | > 10 SEP. 2016 | Dorsoduro, 141 (Rio Terà dei Catecumeni, angolo Calle Lanza vicino alla Chiesa della Salute) - 30123 Venezia Marcello Morandini is an artist from Varese, Italy, who studied at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. Interlinking art, architecture and design, his protean career led him to create public and private works in Italy, Europe, Asia and Australia.

The exhibition "Archittetture d'arte", open from 21 May to 10 September 2016 at Galleria Marignana Arte, is a tangible demonstration of this interplay, visible in works based on the exercise of elegant and balanced mathematic ratios and reflecting on concepts of space, geometry and volume.

From 23 April to 19 September 2016 the Peggy Guggenheim Collection presents Imagine. New Imagery in Italian Art 1960-1969, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero. This fresh perspective on European post war art looks at figuration in the Italian avant-garde in the 1960s. In Italy during the 1960s, at the height of the economic boom, artistic experimentation flourished at an unprecedented pace and intensity. The goal was to create a new vocabulary of signs and images capable of interpreting the vitality of contemporary culture and society. This exhibition draws on the richness of Italian art production in those years. The theme, the leitmotif, of the exhibition is how the figured image, transient and transformed, departing from the monochrome, served to construct a new language of representation in a little known phase of Italian art history. The exhibition, in a tightly curated sequence of galleries, lays out the multiple lines of research of several of Italian artists who, emerging from the zeroing of the neo-avant-garde, reconstituted a new world of images, figures, and narrative. On view are works by artists such as Franco Angeli, Mario Ceroli, Domenico Gnoli, Giosetta Fioroni, Tano Festa, Fabio Mauri, Francesco lo Savio, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Mario Schifano, Giulio Paolini, Jannis Kounellis, Pino Pascali.

SUPERSTUDIO 50 | MAXXI - Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo | > 04 SEP. 2016 | via Guido Reni 4A - 00196 Roma Transverse, metaphysical, indefinable, ever-new, ever outré, Superstudio is one of the most influential groups in Italian "radical architecture," founded in 1966 by Adolfo Natalini and Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, who were later joined by Gian Piero Frassinelli, the brothers Roberto and Alessandro Magris and Alessandro Poli.
50 years on from its foundation, MAXXI is devoting a major retrospective to the group: Superstudio 50 (from April 21 through September 4, 2016), an exhibition conceived by Natalini, Toraldo di Francia and Frassinelli themselves, together with the curator Gabriele Mastrigli.
This exhibition brings together and presents over 200 pieces, ranging from installations to objects, from graphic works to photographs and through to publications covering the entire career and development of the group; materials largely drawn from its own archives, some never previously displayed and many of which will progressively enter MAXXI's architecture collection.
Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 11am-7pm, Saturday 11am-10pm.

The MAN Museum is pleased to present the exhibition Roman Signer. Films and Installations, curated by Lorenzo Giusti and Li Zhenhua. With a treasure of more than 200 films and a series of new installations created for this occasion, the project at MAN Museum will be the first solo exhibition of Roman Signer in an Italian museum.
Signer began his career as an artist in the second half of the 1960s, after working as an architect's draftsman, an apprentice radio engineer and, for a short time, as a technician in a pressure cooker factory. Known for having defined a new concept of sculpture linked to process, transformation and movement, Signer created installations as actions, experiments, almost always solitary, for which he employed objects of everyday use (umbrellas, tables, boots, containers, hats, bicycles) activated by gunpowder or natural forces such as wind and water. These were processes mostly of explosions and collisions, visually and emotionally intriguing, which interpreted the empirical approach as an artistic challenge.
April 22-July 3, 2016. Opening hours: 10 am - 1 pm | 3 pm -7 pm closed Monday.

FM Centre for Contemporary Art opens on April 7, 2016 with the exhibition L'Inarchiviabile/The Unarchivable (April 8-June 15, 2016), curated by Marco Scotini in collaboration with Lorenzo Paini. The opening coincides with the 2016 edition of the modern and contemporary art fair Miart. The exhibition presents a survey on the Italian artistic scene in the 1970s, a decade of great productivity in which culture "went beyond" the field of aesthetics, overflowing into languages that resisted cataloguing and into ephemeral practices linked to social performability and based on temporality.
different fields of art are represented in the exhibition, from musical scores to architecture, from books to cinema and photography.
The exhibition includes 200 artworks by 60 artists coming from the most important Italian collections.

P420 is pleased to present Del disegno disposto alla pittura, the solo show by Riccardo Baruzzi (Lugo, 1976), who comes to terms with the new gallery space with works never previously shown from 2014 to 2016. Drawing, the sign and the line are the pivotal elements of the work of Riccardo Baruzzi. His research explores the notion of the unfinished and the provisional, giving the work a tension towards a solution to which it only alludes, but never arrives.

When Giovanni Anselmo enters a room, he looks around quickly and sharply; he ascertains the important elements having to do with weight and position-where he is standing in relation to the places where walls and floor join together, or where and how doors and windows and ceiling create a space through their mutual relation. He calibrates this fundamental awareness of the here and now with what he knows about the world outside that room-where the sun is at that moment, or where north is-thus grounding himself within the universe at large, a universe of which he knows he is just one particular.
The word "particolare" signifies in Italian both detail and something distinctive or special; it derives its root from the Latin "partire," to separate, to divide, also at the root of the term "particle" in physics, the building blocks of the universe. Thus the continuity of matter and immateriality, of a heavy rock and a very light thought, is evoked-both made up, ultimately, of elementary attractions.
The title of this exhibition is While the hand indicates, the light focuses, in universal gravitation one interferes, the earth finds its bearings, the stars come one hand span closer...

L'image volée (The stolen image) is a group show curated by artist Thomas Demand, within an exhibition architecture designed by sculptor Manfred Pernice.
L'image volée includes more than 90 works produced by over 60 artists from 1820 through the present day. Demand's idea for the exhibition is to explore the way we all rely on pre-existing models, and how artists have always referred to existing imagery to make their own. Questioning the boundaries between originality, conceptual inventiveness and the culture of the copy, the project focuses on theft, authorship, annexation and the creative potential of such pursuits. The exhibition presents three possible investigations: the physical appropriation of the object or its absence; theft as related to the image per se rather than the concrete object itself; and the act of stealing through the making of an image. The exhibition has been conceived as an eccentric, unconventional exploration of such topics through empirical inquiry. Rather than an encyclopedic analysis, it offers visitors an unorthodox insight into a voyage of artistic discovery and research.
Until August 28, 2016.

La grande arte dei Guggenheim bringing to Florence over one hundred masterpieces of European and American art from the 1920s to the 1960s, in a narrative that reconstructs the relationship and the ties between the two sides of the Atlantic through the lives of two leading American collectors, Peggy and Solomon Guggenheim. Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, the exhibition - the result of a cooperative venture involving the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York - will be offering visitors a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the crucial work of European masters of modern art such as Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Man Ray and Pablo Picasso and European masters of so-called Art Informel, or "Unformed Art," such as Alberto Burri, Emilio Vedova, Jean Dubuffet, Lucio Fontana, with large paintings and sculptures by some of the most important personalities on the American art scene in the 1950s and 1960s such as Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein and Cy Twombly.

On April 7, 2016, Pirelli HangarBicocca presents Doubt, a solo exhibition by Carsten Höller. The German artist (born in Brussels in 1961, lives in Stockholm and Biriwa, Ghana) has risen to the fore of the international scene for his inquiry into the nature of human experience. Directly engaging the viewer in his art, Höller's practice revolves around the search for new ways of inhabiting our world. His work summons different states of mind, among them "doubt," which opens the door to new ways of perceiving reality. The show, curated by Vicente Todolí, presents a rich selection of works both existent and new, including large-scale installations, videos and photographs, and plays with the spatial and temporal coordinates of the exhibition venue, charting a course between symmetry, duplication and reversal.
April 7-July 31, 2016. Thursday - Sunday 11-23.

The Mart is dedicating a major exhibition to Giuseppe Penone (Garessio - CN, Italy, 1947), one of the leading protagonists of Italian art. Since the beginning of his career, Penone has constructed a discourse on sculpture based on a relationship with the plant world.
On the occasion of the personal exhibition at Mart, a number of new and significant works will be presented, and reinterpretations of historical works will be shown in close relation with the museum spaces. Right from the entrance, architecture and sculpture intertwine, highlighting the characteristics of both: the expressiveness of the space and that of the matter, the experience of light and that of volume.
The exhibition Giuseppe Penone. Sculpture will be on view until June 26, 2016. Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10am-6pm, Friday 10am-9pm.

Closely linked to the Earthrise exhibition dedicated to the Italian artistic scene in the 1970s, the PAV is continuing its investigations into the pioneers of the relationship between artistic practices and the natural environment, this time moving towards the East and tracing a constellation of complementary experiences generated under Socialism. EcologEAST Art and Nature Beyond the Wall is the first exhibition in Italy presenting non-official, avant-garde artistic research working with the environment and spread throughout Central Europe: from Poland to the former Czechoslovakia, from Romania to Hungary and the former Yugoslavia. The differences in context, primarily from an ideological point of view, make it difficult to make their approach comparable with that developed by western Earth workers and Land artists, over and well beyond the appearance of the strategies used.

Wael Shawky Exhibition at the Merz Foundation curated by Abdellah Karroum. November 3, 2016-February 5, 2017.
This site-specific exhibition by Wael Shawky is based on Al Araba Al Madfuna, a film trilogy inspired by Mohammed Mostajab's novels Dayrout Al Sharif. The trilogy was shot in the Egyptian village of the same name with Shawky filming the third part in the ancient Abydos temple, which is connected to Al Araba Al Madfuna village via an underground passage. The exhibition at the Merz Foundation, which features the installations of the Al Araba Al Madfuna series, drawings, and large installations, fills the entire space of the foundation, including its exterior areas. Together with the screenings, architectural models and set designs specially created for the exhibition generate an original atmosphere inspired by the historical, literary and cinematographic references from which the artist constructed his stories. An artist's book accompanies the exhibition.

Museion's 2016 programme opens with an exceptional double exhibition.
Francesco Vezzoli is curating an exhibition of the Museion collection as guest curator, and presenting, as an artist, the first retrospective of his sculptural work. Entitled Museo Museion, the double show is set to take over the whole of the Bolzano venue. It opens with an imposing wallpaper based on a painting by Giovanni Paolo Pannini, which immerses the ground floor of Museion in the atmosphere of an eighteenth-century picture gallery.
Francesco Vezzoli's exhibition reinterprets part of the Museion collection by making it interface with masterpieces from Western art history kept in major European and American museums.
Frames from famous paintings by Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio, Ingres and many more, appear in trompe l'œil style, around works from the Museion collection. When selecting the pieces, Vezzoli paid special attention to minor works from the museum's collection that are not frequently exhibited. The show, which presents 30 works, including paintings, photography and installations, is presented as a journey through different genres - portrait, self-portrait, still life, landscape, etc. In each section there are also pieces by Vezzoli himself, while the Study Collection venue hosts a special section devoted to graphic works.
Sculpture exhibition curated by Letizia Ragaglia January 30-May 16, 2016.

The exhibition Goshka Macuga: To the Son of Man Who Ate the Scroll will be presented from February 4 to June 19, 2016 in the exhibition spaces of the Podium and the Cisterna at Fondazione Prada in Milan.
The project was conceived and designed by Goshka Macuga (Warsaw, Poland) whose artistic practice is often referred to as taking on the roles of an artist, curator, collector, researcher and exhibition designer. Macuga works across a variety of media including sculpture, installation, photography, architecture and design.
This exhibition, developed by the artist for Fondazione Prada's spaces, is the culmination of a lengthy period of in-depth research attempting to formulate a methodological categorization of material and information around seminal issues such as time, beginnings and endings, collapse and renewal.

Entitled TRANSFORMERS the project takes the shape of a critical operation, according to Hou Hanru: "in the work of Choi Jeong-hwa, Didier Fiuza Faustino, Martino Gamper and Pedro Reyes emerges the most contemporary creativity in its social and political commitment in a world in rapid transformation, a globalized world marked by economic, geopolitical and cultural conflicts".
At the occasion, Didier Faustino proposes three works that provide a reading of the current state of the geopolitical and cultural activity. In 2000, Body in Transit marked the beginning of the artist positioned as "man, citizen and political actor" with the desire of producing new tools for awareness and resistance. Following this first iconic work, Lampedusa, a proposal consisting of a territory waiting to be inhabited, will be presented. With this prototype of architecture, Didier Faustino offers a nod to "Le Radeau de la Méduse" painted by Théodore Géricault, in 1819.
Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 11am-7pm, Saturday 11am-10pm.

Petrit Halilaj, Space Shuttle in the Garden, > 13 MAR. 2016 | HangarBicocca, Palazzo Rucellai, Via Chiese, 2  - 20126 Milano Pirelli HangarBicocca presents the first solo exhibition in Italy by Petrit Halilaj (b. 1986, Kostërrc, Kosovo). The show brings together and connects, for the first time, a selection of works from recent years as well as new ones conceived specifically for the occasion.
Throughout his wide-ranging practice, developed between Kosovo, Italy and Berlin, Halilaj has constantly probed notions of memory, community, cultural heritage and home as shared and private spaces, resulting in works that are highly personal, yet address universal themes in idiosyncratic and often wondrous ways.
Space Shuttle in the Garden is a journey into the artist's universe and mythology that springs from his own story. Through sculptures, drawings, performances, videos and installations, Halilaj explores the tides of history and the changes in the world around him, recounting the "revolutions" of his native country and his generation. The conflict between Kosovo and Serbia (1998-'99), displacement, life as a refugee, but above all, the witnessing of the self-making of an independent country are all crucial cornerstones of his life, often resurfacing in his work. Each piece, while drawing on events, objects and stories equally from the past and present, decidedly looks to the future, always harboring the artist's hopes and desires, hinting at romantic, humorous and also often peculiar visions and dreams that have yet to come true.
December 3, 2015 - March 13, 2016. Opening: December 2, 7pm, Free admission.

Marco Bagnoli, La Voce. Nel giallo faremo una scala o due al bianco invisibile | > 29 FEB. 2016 | Museo d'Arte contemporanea DonnaRegina | Via Luigi Settembrini, 79 - 80139 Napoli Three exhibition at Madre museum.
Two projects have been specially commissioned by the Madre museum in 2015 from the French artist Daniel Buren (Boulogne-Villancourt, 1938) to celebrate the relationship between the museum and its community, on the occasion of the first ten years of the Madre's activity: Come un gioco da bambini. Lavoro in situ, 2014-2015, Madre, Napoli - #1 and Axer / Désaxer. Lavoro in situ, 2015, Madre, Napoli - #2.
Axer / Désaxer. Lavoro in situ, 2015, Madre, Napoli - #2 consists of an intervention of architectural dimensions, conceived by the artist especially for the Madre's atrium. Set obliquely facing the street in front, the museum building is made to "rotate" by the artist's intervention so as to replace it on the axis towards Via Settembrini before it.
10 October 2015 - 4 July 2016.

Since the early 1970s the artistic practice of Marco Bagnoli (Empoli) has been divided between drawing, painting, sculpture, environmental and sound installation, combining them with each other in a pervasive synthesis, aesthetic datum and scientific statement, theories of vision and color and iconological research, ancient knowledge and a moving experience of space and time, in which the work explores the ramifications of thought, becoming a matrix of knowledge, both rational and intuitive. The intervention of Marco Bagnoli at the Madre museum in Naples, titled La voce. Nel giallo faremo una scala o due al bianco invisibile ("The Voice.

La Grande Madre, > 05 NOV. 2015 | Palazzo Reale - Piazza Duomo 12 - Milano The exhibition The Great Mother analyzes the iconography of motherhood in the 20th century through over 400 works by 139 artists, writers, and film directors alongside historical documents and artifacts from 1900 to the present.
From the Venuses of the Stone Age to the bad girls of the post-feminist era, through centuries of religious depictions of maternity scenes, the histories of art and culture have often centered on the figure of the mother, adopting it at times as a symbol of creativity and a metaphor for art itself. Throughout the 20th century, and in the history of modern and contemporary art in particular, motherhood appears to be constantly under attack: women's bodies are often turned into battlegrounds onto which violent struggles are fought to establish new boundaries between genders and sexual roles.
Until November 15, 2015.

Antony Gormley, Human, > 27 SEP. 2015 | Forte di Belvedere, via San Leonardo, 1 - Firenze From 26 April through 27 September 2015, Florence will host the work of Antony Gormley, one of the most acclaimed sculptors working today. The exhibition Human follows on from the success of exhibitions by Zhang Huan, which marked the reopening of the Forte di Belvedere in 2013 and Giuseppe Penone in 2014. Curated by Sergio Risaliti and Arabella Natalini, Human brings together over 100 works by Gormley in the inner rooms of the villa, the bastions, the staircases and the terraces, to occupy every side of the 16th-century fortress with its extraordinary views over the city and the surrounding hills.
The exhibition includes the artist's seminal installation Critical Mass, an "anti-monument evoking all the victims of the 20th century." The work was originally conceived for a disused tram depot in Vienna in 1995, to "activate the whole building and make it a site of reflection on the dark side of German history." On view on the lower terrace of the Forte, Critical Mass acquires a new potency in relation to a Renaissance city, the history of humanism and the continuing and ever-present relationship between money, militarism and power.
Hours daily 10-20. Monday closed.

Tobias Rehberger. Wrap it up | > 11 JAN. 2015 | MACRO - Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma, via Nizza 138 - RomaTobias Rehberger is one of the most eminent German artists of the contemporary international art scene. The exhibition Tobias Rehberger. Wrap it up Deutsche Bank Collection and recent works on paper reveals a hitherto unknown aspect of his oeuvre. The exhibition offers a general overview of the artist's works on paper. The drawings, collages, and prints are part of the Deutsche Bank Collection and date back to the period between 1991 and 2003. In addition, Rehberger has selected various works on paper, from the period from 2003 up to today. The exhibition is curated by Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head of Art at Deutsche Bank.
Wrap it up is illuminated by Rehberger's "Infections"-33 unique lampshades made from Velcro ribbon, part of an ongoing project which began in 2002.

Soleil politique. The museum between light and shadow | > 11 JAN. 2015 | MUSEION museo d'arte moderna e contemporanea di Bolzano, via Dante 6 - 39100 BolzanoThe exhibition Soleil politique. The museum between light and shadow invites the visitor to follow an itinerary that begins, immediately upon entering the Museion, at the very heart of the works on exhibit, before extending out into the city. The first curatorial decision consists of overturning the hierarchy that traditionally separates the reception area from the lofty content beyond, the former at the ground floor of the building, the latter above. This spatial undertaking seeks to expand the use of the museum's interior to include its architecture as an integral part of the exhibition experience. Employing space in this way contrasts with the rules upheld by the traditional art museum or places of worship that prepare access to their contents in successive stages.
The fourth and last floor of the museum, transformed into a belvedere, offers a panoramic view of the city that can be contemplated with reference points from the exhibition in mind. From here, the visit continues in the city itself, throughout its streets, avenues and bridges, and in a number of the city's buildings that form an integral part of the exhibition.
Until 11 January 2015.

Tomaso Buzzi alla/at Venini | > 11 JAN. 2015 | Le Stanze del Vetro, Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore, 1 - Venezia, VE 30124 | Fondazione Giorgio CiniBetween 1932 and 1933 the Milanese architect Tomaso Buzzi (1900-1981) began a fruitful collaboration with the Venini glassware company, which would continue, albeit episodically, in later years. The architect's creative contribution was evident both in the glass forms and in their innovative manufacturing technique.
The exhibition Tomaso Buzzi at Venini, curated by Marino Barovier, retraces this brief but fruitful collaboration, documented through the selected works (approximately 200), the original drawings preserved in the Venini's archive, and a previously undisplayed collection of drawings. On the occasion of the exhibition Skira will publish the first complete "catalogue raisonné" of Tomaso Buzzi's work in glass, edited by Marino Barovier with Carla Sonego. Furthermore, for this third exhibition dedicated to the Venini glassware company, film director Gian Luigi Calderone has made a documentary film entitled "Tomaso Buzzi. Memories of my Guardian Angel" .

Man Ray | > 11 JAN. 2015 | Azienda speciale Villa Manin, piazza Manin 10, 33033 Passariano, Codroipo (Udine)Villa Manin presents the large scale exhibition Man Ray (1890-1976) curated by Guido Comis and Antonio Giusa in collaboration with Fondazione Marconi, Milan.
U.S. photographer, painter, and filmmaker. He grew up in New York City, where he studied architecture, engineering, and art. With Marcel Duchamp he formed the New York Dada group in 1917 and produced ready-mades. In 1921 he moved to Paris and became associated with the Surrealists. He rediscovered the technique for making cameraless pictures (photograms), which he called rayographs, by placing objects on light-sensitive paper; he also experimented with the technique of solarization, which renders part of the image negative and part positive by exposing a print or negative to a flash of light during development. He turned to portrait and fashion photography and made a virtually complete record of the celebrities of Parisian cultural life of the 1920s and '30s. He also made important contributions as an avant-garde filmmaker in the 1920s.

URUBOROS: James Lee Byars encounters Leon Battista Alberti, Museo Marino Marini Museum > 8 NOV. 2014, Piazza San Pancrazio - FlorenceThe Marino Marini Museum is honoured to present URUBOROS: James Lee Byars encounters Leon Battista Alberti. Curated by the museum's artistic director Alberto Salvadori, this unique project involves Leon Battista Alberti's Rucellai Chapel and Sepulchre, reopened to the public in 2013, which it places in an unprecedented dialogue with a work of contemporary art by the US-born artist James Lee Byars.

The Uroboros (from the Greek ονροβορος, tail-devouring snake) denotes the figure of a snake biting its own tail, endlessly catching up with itself and recreating itself to form a perfect circle. The symbol of the Uroboros is associated with Gnosticism, hermeticism, and alchemy.

Representing the dualistic nature of all things, it illustrates the idea that opposites are not in conflict with each other, but contribute together to the development of spiritual harmony.
Until November 8, 2014 | Hours: Monday, Wednesday-Saturday 10am-5pm.

Walter Lazzaro, Approdi silenti, Il Fortino - Forte dei Marmi (LU) > 28 SEP. 2014 | July-August 9.00-13.00 / 17.00 | September 9-13.00 / 16.00-19.00Remembering Walter Lazzaro means shedding further light on one of the most important and lively artists of Italian painting between the first and the second post-war periods. An interesting figure both from a pictorial and human point of view for the strong characterisation of his choices concerning art, life and teaching. Walter Lazzaro, born in Rome in 1914, had his first one-man show in the capital's Palazzo Torlonia in 1932 and ended his artistic activity, after hundreds of exhibitions, in 1989 shortly before his death that occurred on March 3 of the same year. His work has been analysed and dealt with by some of the most illustrious critics, from De Chirico to Carluccio, from Cortenova to De Grada, from Franza to Sgarbi. Walter Lazzaro's painting is inspired by the most cultivated history of Italian art, brings together past and present, grafts innovations on tradition, gives peculiarity to the most engaging themes, from landscapes to figures, through a craft that in him was always imbued with a poetry and a sensitivity that few artists ever managed to show. Lazzaro lived in a sea landscape as a young Ulysses searching for his lost homeland.
The city of Forte dei Marmi dedicates a retrospective for the Centenary of the artist's birth with the exhibition Walter Lazzaro. Approdi silenti (Silent Landing Places) until September 28, 2014.

The showcase by Otto luogo dell'arte - III, from 09 JUN. 2014 | Palazzo Rucellai, via de' Palchetti 2 - 50123 Firenze By the third showcase Otto luogo dell'arte, the project, its cadence, is taking pace. It is still a showcase of passage that will take us to a ' set-up of the space where they will be presented sequences of small works or a single work. A really punctual presence in its two meanings. How is the mission, Otto will continue to investigate with more flexibility and mobility that happens in the world of creativity in relation to the traditional handicrafts or the new crafts declined by digital format.
Each appointment will be accompanied by a small catalog. For this showcase n.1 of 2014 and the 14th event produced in three years, in a whirlwind trip to the disciplinary contamination, within the limits and in the overlapping fields of experience, Otto makes a small point fundamental aspects of the relationship between art design and craftsmanship.
The three authors Claudia Leporatti, Fabrizio Pieruccini and myself (Mauro Lovi), reflect with their works plastically what we have described above.

 Claudia Leporatti , a florentine who lives and works in Carrara, is a sculptor who proposes in the modeling, the ancient art of modeling with the fingers, contemporary soul she gives life to moments of figures that can be found at the edge of the pool waiting the tram or walk to a medical examination. Here she proposes two young female male standing and made ??of terracotta h 90 cm.
 Fabrizio Pieruccini , Lucca, he is a craftsman of great experience that manipulates wood in an extraordinary way. Here, as in the tradition of Otto, proposes five wooden models of four tables and a container furniture he designed and built. They are pieces of furniture with hot details and are made with an eye to the organic design and aspects of other movements that have characterized the history of furniture.
The undersigned  Mauro Lovi , being a painter and architect, proposes a sequence meditative with otto small oil paintings where you lay down the small wonders chromatic houses half of likely physical . A poetic irony of the project, the only dimension that is given to us to attend and live. (text by M. Lovi)

Ruggero Alfredo Michahelles (RAM), RAM. La realtà metafisica | Fondazione Centro Matteucci per l'Arte Moderna - Viareggio (LU), > 2 JUN 2014The Matteucci Foundation for Modern Art hosts the rich exhibition by Ruggero Alfredo Michahelles, alias RAM.
Descendent of a North American family that moved to Florence in the mid-19th century, RAM demonstrated a talent for art in all its forms from an early age. With his brother Thayaht, he staged the scenography of Aida, awarded in 1924.
Painter, sculptor, poster designer, scenographer, illustrator - over the course of his career he absorbed a number of influences, taking inspiration from futurism, fashion and industry. Influenced by French movements, he explored the play of light and quest for beauty, reaching a pictorial turning point around the 1930s that led to a "neo-metaphysical" exhibition, where colour and plasticity become the most important features of the composition, and anecdotal and facial definition lose importance.
The exhibition RAM. La realtà metafisica, curated by Susanna Ragionieri, is open until June 2, 2014.
Thu-Fri 15.30-19.30, Sat-Sun 10.00-13.00 / 15.30-19.30.

Abbiamo amato tanto la rivoluzione (We loved it so much, the revolution), a major exhibition curated by Claudia Gioia and dedicated to the work of one of the most uncompromising, compelling, and innovative artists working today.

He does so not as an act of commemoration, but rather as a constant engagement in the promotion of culture as a decisive factor for change.
Consisting of 65 artworks, the exhibition starts with a major installation that consists of millions of pieces of broken glass and mirror that cover most of the main exhibition space. As viewers walk on this reflecting surface of debris, they also move along the space of memory, and while engaged in self-reflection, they are invited to think over some difficult moments of our collective history.

Josef Albers: Sublime Optics explores the spiritual elements in Albers's art. Maintaining his religious practice lifelong, Albers incorporated traditional imagery in a lot of his work, and, even when he did not, regarded transformation of color and line as spiritual, even mystical, events. It is the less religious sense of Albers's spirituality that this exhibition addresses.
Sublime Optics considers Albers's experiments with line, form, and color, in turn, and evaluates how he was able to create further mysteries in the world-ones that can act as spiritual exercises for our eyes. He is like a mystic optician, fitting us with lenses to better see the sublime around us. Until January 6, 2014. Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10am-8pm.

L'Avanguardia russa, la Siberia e l'Oriente. Kandinsky, Malevic, Filonov, Goncarova, Palazzo Strozzi, > 19 JAN. 2014, Piazza Strozzi - FirenzeThe Russian Avant-garde, Siberia and the East. Kandinsky, Malevic, Filonov, Goncarova is the first international exhibition to examine the fundamental importance of the Oriental and Eurasian connection to Russian Modernism. The exhibition follows the destinies of Russia's self-proclaimed "Barbarians" in their search for new sources of artistic inspiration and demonstrates how modern Russian culture experienced a deep attraction to - and an apprehension of - the exotic, the unknown and the "Other", which artists and writers identified with the spirit of the taiga, the virgin territories of desert and steppe and the "otherness" of Oriental culture.
Daily until January 9, 2014.
Always at Palazzo Strozzi the contemporary art gallery La Strozzina presents Territori instabili. Confini e identità nell'arte contemporanea (Unstable Territory. Borders and identity in contemporary art), curated by Walter Guadagnini and Franziska Nori. The exhibition showcases work by international artists which will encourage visitors to reconsider the notion of territory in a contemporary world. Whilst the latter is increasingly characterised by the obsolescence of such concepts as the nation state and borders, there is, at the same time, a return to new forms of nationalism and renewed interest in the individual in relation to a specific area or community.

Soft Pictures, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, > 23 MAR. 2014, Via Modane 16 - 10141 TorinoSoft Pictures is a group exhibition that explores the use of textile in contemporary art. The show addresses the multiplicity of meanings that the adoption of this medium entails in artistic practice. Historically, the use of textile as a material to create art images can be placed halfway between the liberal and applied arts, and its position is still considered a contested issue. Today, artists are going back to textile and its multiple historical, political, social and symbolic meanings-a rich semantic texture, which unfolds through the exhibition.
Function and decoration, design and art, tradition and modernity: Artists move between these poles, reflecting on the artefact as a cluster of different tensions and symbols.
On view from October 24, 2013 to March 23, 2014. Hours: Thursday 7-11pm; Friday-Sunday 12-7pm.

The Visitors by Ragnar Kjartansson, HangarBicocca, > 17 NOV. 2013, Via Chiese 2 - MilanoThe Visitors by Ragnar Kjartansson (2012) is a large installation consisting of nine video projections on a scale of 1:1. It brings into play the relationships between live concerts, the tradition of performance, poetry, and immersive cinema, based on the repetition and circular nature of actions and settings.
Ragnar Kjartansson's performance practice has embraced the entire spectrum of art ever since he began. Through theatre, music and sculpture, as well as visual art, Kjartansson creates performances and actions that take from a number of disciplines. In them he explores and tests the borderline between reality and fiction, always poised between melancholy and parody. From September 19 to November 17, 2013. Thu-Sun 11am-11pm.

Galleria Vezzoli, photo by Musacchio/Ianniello/Napolitano Galleria Vezzoli, photo by Musacchio/Ianniello/Napolitano, MAXXI Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, > 24 NOV. 2013, Via Guido Reni 4A - RomaInternationally recognised as one of the most important Italian artists of his generation, in 2013 Francesco Vezzoli will feature in three solo shows in international museums. The series begins in Rome with MAXXI hosting the exhibition Galleria Vezzoli, the first Italian retrospective devoted to the artist. Ninety works presenting Francesco Vezzoli from the earliest works, the embroideries from 1995, through to the most recent videos, self-portraits and sculptures. The title of the exhibition is inspired with levity and irony, by the great galleries of Rome, and evokes the sumptuous atmosphere of the museums of the past. MAXXI will be completely transformed for the occasion with the futuristic architecture of Zaha Hadid being "draped" with velvets and damask wallpapers against which the artist's works will be set: the videos and the images which feature the stars of the big screen and TV), the self-portraits and the sculptures with classical-style features.
Until November 24, 2013. Tuesday-Sunday 11-19h, Saturday 11-22h

55. Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte / 55th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia The 55th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia under the artistic direction of Massimiliano Gioni has the title: Il Palazzo Enciclopedico / The Encyclopedic Palace.
With this choice Massimiliano Gioni is evoking the self-taught Italian-American artist Marino Auriti who on 16 November 1955 filed a design with the US Patent office depicting his Palazzo Enciclopedico. This imaginary museum was meant to house all worldly knowledge, bringing together the greatest discoveries... in a 136-story building that would stand 700 meters tall and take up over 16 blocks in Washington, D.C.
«Auriti's plan was never carried out, of course, but the dream of universal, all-embracing knowledge crops up throughout history, as one that eccentrics like Auriti share with many other artists, writers, scientists, and prophets who have tried-often in vain-to fashion an image of the world that will capture its infinite variety and richness». «These personal cosmologies, with their delusions of omniscience, shed light on the constant challenge of reconciling the self with the universe, the subjective with the collective, the specific with the general, the individual with the culture of her time. Today, as we grapple with a flood of information, such attempts to structure knowledge into all-inclusive systems seem even more necessary and even more desperate. The 55th International Exhibition of Art will explore these flights of the imagination in a show that-like Auriti's Encyclopedic Palace-will combine works of contemporary art with historical artefacts and found objects…» The exhibition will place at its heart «a reflection on the ways in which images have been used to organize knowledge and shape our experience of the world». Inspired by what scholar Hans Belting has called «an anthropology of images», the Biennale Arte 2013 will attempt «an inquiry in the realms of the imaginary and the functions of imagination».
Maria Lassnig and Marisa Merz will be the recipients of the Golden Lions for Lifetime Achievement. The 55th Venice Biennale will be on view from June 1 to November 24, 2013 at Arsenale, Giardini and across the city. (Preview May 29, 30, 31, 2013).

Seguso. Vetri d'Arte: 1932/1973The birth of Seguso Vetri D'Arte marks the beginning of an important chapter in the history of 20th-century Murano glassworks, but also in the history of a family that has been committed to this noble art since the year 1397. Though already operative in 1932 as "Artistica Soffiera e Vetreria-Barovier Seguso Ferro", it wasn't until 1937 that the company was officially established as "Seguso Vetri D'Arte".
All of which results in the creation of glass artworks that are graceful, attractive and pure, milestones in the development of this decorative art and, therefore, accepted in prestigious collections, both private and public such as the MOMA in New York, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
The exhibition Seguso. Vetri d'Arte: 1932/1973 will be on view through September 29, 2013.

Maria Cristina Finucci, Wasteland, Università Ca' Foscari VeneziaIn an effort to raise awareness of the five big patches of plastic waste forming in the centers of the ocean's gyres, UNESCO has declared them to be a new nation at the "High Seas, Our Future! Conference," held in mid April in Paris. Floating bits of discarded plastic-bottle caps, fishing nets, bags and sundry tinier pieces-cluster together in the north and south Atlantic, the north and south Pacific and the Indian oceans. The pollution varies in concentration, which is why some people say it's bigger than Texas, why some people say it's bigger than two Texases, and why at least one person decided it should be a country: Madrid-based Italian artist/architect, Maria Cristina Finucci.
Her work 'Wasteland' will be displayed on the courtyard of Venice University Ca' Foscari on the occasion of the 2013 Venice Art Biennale from May 29 to November 24, 2013.

Julieta Aranda. If a body meet a body The Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce presents If a body meet a body, an exhibition by Julieta Aranda, her first solo show to take place in an Italian museum.
I tell you a story: There is a museum in Genoa. And on the top floor, there is a room that is usually locked. Inside this room, there is a small community of 23 heads. A potentially thinking collectivity-probably Italian aristocrats from the early 20th century-missing its body. An homage to decapitation, and a memorial to the separation between thought and the possibility to act.

Rediscovering an idea of beauty today means reconsidering our usual modes of identifying it, adopting a different approach to reality.
Visitors to the exhibition Un'idea di bellezza / An Idea of Beauty at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence will be presented with works of art by eight international contemporary artists (Vanessa Beecroft, Chiara Camoni, Andreas Gefeller, Alicja Kwade, Jean-Luc Mylayne, Isabel Rocamora, Anri Sala, Wilhelm Sasnal) soliciting their physical and emotional participation.

The exhibition will feature 28 artworks by some of the most interesting international artists.
Fragile? displays the creations of some of the most interesting artists of our time, who used glass with diverse and contrasting intentions: from the provoking gesture of Marcel Duchamp of shutting the air of Paris in a transparent ampoule, to the tragic lyricism of Joseph Beuys's glass fragments as a witness to the ferociousness of earthquakes, from the transformation of industrial objects into poetical individualities by Luciano Fabro to the ironic explosion of car windscreens in a Pipilotti Rist video.

A Passion for Jean Prouvé. From furniture to architecture The private collection of Laurence and Patrick Seguin / Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli, Via Nizza, 230  10126 Torino, > 8 SEP. 2013 The Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli presents A Passion for Jean Prouvé. From furniture to architecture The private collection of Laurence and Patrick Seguin, an exhibition devoted to the furniture and architecture by the French designer Jean Prouvé from the collection owned by Laurence and Patrick Seguin, who discovered the work of Jean Prouvé, in the late 1980s, through his furniture designs. They were immediately struck by the unique aesthetic of these pieces, where the artistic skill lies wholly in imperceptible technical mastery devoted to enhancing the strength of the materials.
The couple then began to take an interest in Jean Prouvé's work as a whole, of which the furniture is only a part, going on to discover his architectural designs.

Rudolf Steiner. Alchemy of the Everyday is an exhibition of the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany, curated by Mateo Kries.

Evgeny Antufiev. Twelve, wood, dolphin, knife, bowl, mask, crystal, bones and marble - fusion. Exploring materials | Collezione Maramotti, until 31 JULY 2013"In the wake of the general collapse of the space of myth, the knowledge of myth becomes the basis for creativity and the perception of reality." (E. A.)
Evgeny Antufiev's first exhibition in Italy marks the completion of a project for Collezione Maramotti: a project which the Russian artist has realized during a period of residence in Reggio Emilia. Antufiev makes constant use of a variety of objects and materials-cloth, crystals, meteorites, bones, hair, teeth, glue, snake skins, insects, marble, wood-that show no immediate relationship to one another, but which fuse with one another within his installations and find themselves transformed: they come to be involved in a process that's reminiscent of alchemy.

Alighiero Boetti a Roma | MAXXI - National Museum of XXI Century Arts, until 08 SEP. 2013The MAXXI presents two exhibitions. The first is an exhibition describing the relationship between an artist allergic to definitions and a city that became for him a jumping off point for the unknown and inspiration for new creative paths: with Alighiero Boetti a Roma, MAXXI recounts the story of "Alì Ghiero, the passing Bedouin, camped out beside the Pantheon". Thirty works, many previously unseen or rarely exhibited, that recount an extraordinary creative season in search of an identity and exploring distant, enthralling worlds.
On view through October 6, 2013. Galleria 4.

The second exhibition presents the worldwide debut of Fiona Tan's latest work, Inventory An exhibition on time, space, memory and identity.
"Rome is a city rich in history, inhabited by archaeological remains and architectural ruins. The ideal place for investigating the relationship between objects and memory" Fiona Tan.
Inventory was born out of the allure of the private home and museum of Sir John Soane, an enthusiastic collector who over two hundred years ago created, within the confines of his own residence, a private monument embodying the appeal of and the architect's passion for Rome and featuring classical sculptures, fragments and details.
On view through September 8, 2013 Galleria 5, Sala Gian Ferrari, Museum Hall.

La magnifica ossessione, Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, from December 6, 2012 to February 28, 2013The Mart, Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, is renewing its mission. After ten years' activity, the museum is being transformed to become a responsive, flexible institution, more democratic in assuring access to its holdings, more agile and independent.
La magnifica ossessione The magnificent obsession will for a whole year offer the museum's public a series of new itineraries through its collections.
Of the over 1200 works on show, hundreds are on display for the first time; it will be possible to meet international artists in residence, like Paco Cao, or special guests, such as Emilio Isgrò and Liliana Moro, Christian Fogarolli and Paolo Meoni.
On view through October 6, 2013.
Self-taught, water-diviner, auto-da-fé of works. Victim or protagonist, recomposed collection, disturbing and provocative, maniacal and fetishist. Obscure object of desire. Secret, sharing, intoxication, celebration. Giddiness of blending.
The magnificent obsession has been designed to highlight the museum's assets: not just the works of art themselves, but also the documents, skills and participation of the public. The works are arranged in accordance with a criterion that is chronological, certainly, but which in fact moves forward by major thematic shifts. A sort of 'archaeology of the future', displayed without visual hierarchy, highlighting the differences between categories.
In parallel, the Mart is inaugurating a second line of research with the first Italian one-man show dedicated to David Claerbout (b. 1969; Kortrijk, Belgium). Curated by Saretto Cincinelli and open from 26th October 2012 to 13th January 2013.

6th Premio Lorenzo Bonaldi per l'Arte - EnterPrize: The Log-O-Rithmic + 4th Artists' Film International | GAMeC - Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo | Via San Tomaso, 53 - 24121 Bergamo, through 20 jan. 2013GAMeC - Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo presents through January 20, 2013 6th Premio Lorenzo Bonaldi per l'Arte - EnterPrize: The Log-O-Rithmic and 4th Artists' Film International.
The Log-O-Rithmic exhibition is the outcome of the winning project of the Swiss freelance curator Fredi Fischli, chosen at GAMeC in November 2011 by an international panel. It takes the ephemeral workThe Log-O-Rithmic Slide Rule by the architects Trix and Robert Haussmann as a starting point. As a playful device based on a bureaucratic principle, it offers a combinatory potential that creates infinite varieties of imaginative architecture, language and images. Seven contemporary artists have been invited to activate the experimental device and reprocess it for their own specific purpose.

Arman, Full-Up, The Small Utopia. Ars Multiplicata, Fondazione PradaThe Fondazione Prada presents the exhibition The Small Utopia. Ars Multiplicata, curated by Germano Celant, at its Ca' Corner della Regina space in Venice. The title of the exhibition, The Small Utopia. Ars Multiplicata, is a reference to the dream, handed down from the historic avant-gardes to the artists of today, of achieving the democratic dissemination of art through a multiplication of the work of art as object, in order to favor a different perception and use of it from the aesthetic and social standpoint.Covering a period of 75 years, from 1901 to 1975, the exhibition documents with over six hundred editions, including multiples and prototypes, the transformation of the idea of uniqueness in art and in its perception, through the multiplication not just of the objects themselves but also of the different means used for its distribution in the 20th century, from artist's books to magazines and from experimental cinema to radio. On view until November 25, 2012. Hours: Daily except Tue, 10-6pm.

XIV International Sculpture Biennale of Carrara 2010, Postmonument The fourteenth International Sculpture Biennale of Carrara, titled Postmonument, continues with a big success, and will be enriched at the end of summer by an important section dedicated to workshops and performances.
To challenge the theme of the exhibition - that process of de-monumentalization which has freed sculpture from any celebratory, encomiastic functions - have been called four artists: Vanessa Beecroft, Nevin Aladag, Grzegorz Kowalski and Zorka Wollny.
The aim: to show how, having abandoned its pedestal, the monument has become environment, experienced space and gesture, obtaining a more expanded and extemporary dimension of sculpture, in which the third dimension turns the place into experience and ephemeral time boldly modifies any presumptions of eternity.
Until 31 October 2010

Piero Fornasetti e Gio Ponti, secretaire Trumeau - ArchitetturaPromoted and produced by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali, Soprintendenza PSAE e per il Polo Museale della città di Firenze, Opificio delle Pietre Dure di Firenze, the exhibition Inganni a Arte. Meraviglie del trompe-l'œil dall'antichità al contemporaneo will be oper at Palazzo Strozzi in Firenze until January 24, 2010.
From ancient Greco-Roman mosaics and frescoes to European masterpieces of the 1300s to today, two hundred works from Italian and international museums and private collections tell the intriguing and spectacular history of trompe-l'oeil.
The art of deceiving the eye. The theme of deception, illusion, and the eternal tension between fiction and reality is shown not only in painting, but in the richness it has always enjoyed: sculpture, intarsia, scagliola, pietre dure, porcelain, etc. Examples exhibited include faux armoirs, half-open, with books inside, wood intarsia of small Renaissance studios, scagliola tabletops and stones portraying seemingly prehensile objects, soup tureens and table furnishings in the shape of vegetables, anatomical and botanical wax models.
The exhibit also dedicates a significant amount of space to wall decorations and interiors (detached frescoes from Ancient Rome, where the theme of deception gave life to a school) and to Flemish artists and their innovations in the trompe-l'oeil genre.Among the many curious pieces is the famous cabinet called Scarabattolo (from the Opificio delle Pietre Dure), a painting of the late 1600s, by the Flemish artist Domenico Remps, that shows a collection of natural and artistic objects from the Medici family. Masterpieces by Mantegna, Titian and Veronese will induce the visitor to reflect on the duplicity with which spatial interaction is depicted in painting, whilst the 17th century works of Jean-François de la Motte, and the still lifes of the 19th American realists will allow the visitor to explore subjects frequently encountered in optically deceptive painting, such as hanging letters or panels with papers alongside other objects on them, or the motif of hunting trophies and of various objects hanging on doors and panels.
In addition, works by American artists specializing in trompe-l'œil such as Peto, Kaye, Harnett and Haberle will be on display in Europe for the very first time.

Paesaggio magico, Michele Zaza, PROGETTOSETTANTA - Arte e fotografia dalla ricerca anni '70 in ItaliaThe Galleria Enrico Fornello, while continuing to offer an artistic programme with an international perspective and a vocation for contemporary experimental work, is also running a major, long-term cultural project entitled PROGETTOSETTANTA - Art and photography from the 70s in Italy. The project got underway in October 2007.
Curated by Elena Re, the aim of the project is to piece together and present the complex spectrum of Italian artists who used photography in the cultural season of the 70s.
The analysis focuses on core issues in the experimental work of these artists, in what was a very intense and important historical period. In some cases, however, emphasis is also placed on the artists' more recent work in order to highlight the pertinence and non-fossilized nature of their expressive approach.
Between the second half of the 60s and the early 80s, in fact, many artists investigated the potential of the photographic medium, in the light of a line of thinking that did not just pervade the field of art. The result of these experiences was the flourishing of absolutely novel forms of expression, the multiplicity and the articulation of which proved such as to create a scenario as broad as it is fascinating. All the facets of this clearly need exploring.
The results of the analysis conducted by Elena Re are being presented in a series of exhibitions held at regular intervals at the Galleria Enrico Fornello. Each show is accompanied by a book, thereby creating a series of works - edited by Elena Re and published by Edizioni Gli Ori - dealing with and exploring this theme.
Three solo exhibitions were programmed for the initial phase of the project, devoted to Giorgio Ciam (October 2007), Luigi Ghirri (May 2008) and Paesaggio magico by Michele Zaza, which is due to open from 22 November 2008 to 31 January 2009.
PROGETTOSETTANTA - Art and photography from the 70s in Italy is also accorded considerable space and an identity of its own in the context of art fairs. For Artefiera 2008 Elena Re curated a section of the gallery's stand, presenting photographic work by Giovanni Anselmo, Giorgio Ciam, Claudio Costa, Mario Cresci, Giuseppe Desiato, Luigi Ghirri, Plinio Martelli, Luigi Ontani, Giuseppe Penone, Mario Schifano, Aldo Tagliaferro, Franco Vaccari, Michele Zaza and Gilberto Zorio.
The extensive programme of exhibitions, the systematic presence at art fairs and the series of publications clearly reflect the strong cultural commitment that an emerging gallery feels bound to make. This is especially in view of the current situation, which at an international level involves the rediscovery and valorization of artists who, with many different and multiple lines of enquiry, have marked a fundamental historic period for Italian contemporary art.
Una prima programmazione ha previsto tre mostre personali: Giorgio Ciam realizzata ad ottobre 2007, Luigi Ghirri, realizzata a maggio 2008, e Paesaggio magico di Michele Zaza in programma dal 22 novembre 2008 al 31 gennaio 2009 sempre a cura di Elena Re.
PROGETTOSETTANTA - Arte e fotografia dalla ricerca anni '70 in Italia ha trovato ampio spazio e identità propria anche in ambito fieristico. Per Artefiera 2008 Elena Re ha curato, infatti, una sezione dello stand della Galleria presentando lavori fotografici di Giovanni Anselmo, Giorgio Ciam, Claudio Costa, Mario Cresci, Giuseppe Desiato, Luigi Ghirri, Plinio Martelli, Luigi Ontani, Giuseppe Penone, Mario Schifano, Aldo Tagliaferro, Franco Vaccari, Michele Zaza, Gilberto Zorio.
Un ampio ciclo di mostre, una presenza sistematica in fiera e una collana editoriale rappresentano in maniera evidente il forte impegno culturale che una galleria emergente si sente in dovere di abbracciare, soprattutto considerando l'attualità che, sul piano internazionale, riveste il recupero e la valorizzazione di artisti che, con molteplici e differenti ricerche, hanno segnato un periodo storico fondamentale per l'arte contemporanea italiana.
