Edward Hopper

(October, 1 2016 – February, 2 2017)

Let’s start from one of my favorite contemporary painters, Edward Hopper, on display at the Vittoriano, well-known for its numerous and important exhibits. The most popular American artist of the XX century, who was able to crystallize time and within it a panorama or a person and who said “if I can describe it with words, there would be no reasons to paint at all.” His exhibit began October 1 and goes on until February, 2 2017. In collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art of New York, it will depict the whole period of its production, from the Parisian watercolors to urban landscapes of the 50’s and 60’s and will include over 60 works among which famous masterpieces such as South Carolina Morning (1955), Second Story Sunlight (1960), New York Interior (1921), Le Bistro or The Wine Shop (1909), Summer Interior (1909).

LOVE. contemporary art meets love

(September 29, 2016 – February 19, 2017)

The fascinating and elegant Chiostro del Bramante hosts this “lovely” exhibit to celebrate its 20 years of activity with an exhibition with an international appeal. A new proposal that will gather works of the most important artists of contemporary art like Yayoi Kusama, Tom Wesselmann, Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, Gilbert & George, Francesco Vezzoli, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Francesco Clemente, Joana Vasconcelos, with works characterized by intensely experiential languages. For instance All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins by Kusama is among the most instagrammed works in the world, also because ii involves the audience by various solicitations in different ways. LOVE. contemporary art meets love is meant to deal with one of the most important feelings universally telling its different nuances and endless variations.


Picasso

Picasso images. Le opere, l’artista, il personaggio

(October, 14 2016 – February 19, 2017)

Held in the suggestive frame of the Ara Pacis, with more than 200 works, the show outlines in an original way not only the course of outstanding artist, but also the most intimate portrait of a man able to build his international fame. The rich selection of images goes along with a significative selection of graphic works, sculptures and paintings coming from the Musée national Picasso-Paris that contextualize his artistic evolution. The three sections aim to examine the different links that the greatest artist of the XX century set up with photography: from the first attempts in the use of the medium to its applications as a vehicle to study in deep the surrounding world and aid for his work, as well as proof of his huge evolution and fecund collaborations with avant-garde photographers. The last section instead depicts his artistic maturity and his myth.
