De Chirico e Savinio

From March 16th to June 30th at Fondazione Magnani-Rocca, Mamiano di Traversetolo (Parma)

Over 130 works, including paintings and graphic works, by two brothers – Giorgio de Chirico and Alberto Savinio – highlighting the affinity, contrasts and interpretations of the universe that takes shape in their artistic, pictorial, but also literary and theatrical translations.
Always at the center of their productions we find themes such as travel, the mystery of detachment, the poignant emotion of the return, the questions about the human condition, even if reinterpreted in a modern key through the modernity of the avant-garde. An eclectic path (on show also precious costumes for the opera) between metaphysical aesthetics and irony.

Pop Therapy. Fiorucci and the stickers revolution

From March 9th to August 25th at Museo della Figurina, Modena

A journey through time, in those 80s in which a big Fioruccimania spread the creativity of the Milanese designer Elio Fiorucci who, thanks to his own graphic choices and communication strategies, became a cultural phenomenon. Everything starting from the album ‘Fiorucci Stickers’, that, published in 1984, received extraordinary success, being highly innovative compared to the other productions of the Modena’s publishing house.

Driven By Enzo. The cars that Enzo Ferrari loved to drive

Until May 2019 at Ferrari Museum, Maranello (MO)

Even once he’s hung his helmet up for the last time, a driver will always be a driver. After a commendable career behind the wheel, in 1929, Enzo Ferrari decided to focus on managing the Scuderia. His love of driving, however, would never fade. He loved testing his cars himself – and his 2+2 models in particular – exploring their limits on the track. And the suggestions he would give the engineers at Maranello on how to improve certain aspects of a car never fell on deaf ears.

INFO


Franco Fontana. Sintesi

From March 23rd to August 25th at FMAV (Modena)

A true synthesis to retrace over sixty years of the Modena artist’s career and trace his relationships with some of the most authoritative authors of twentieth century photography.
The exhibition includes a first section with 30 works, most of which unpublished, made between 1961 and 2017, selected from the vast photographic archive of the artist between urban and natural landscapes, that will take you on a trip through Modena, Cuba, China, United States and Kuwait; the second section, curated directly by the artist, offers a selection of about a hundred photographs donated to the city of Modena from which it is possible to delineate his relationships with other great protagonists of the international photography such as Luigi Ghirri, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Arnold Newman, Josef Koudelka and Sebastião Salgado.

INFO


Mika Rottenberg

From January 31st to May 19th at MAMbo, Bologna

A seamless labyrinthine pathway featuring ten of the most recent productions – sculptural objects and specially constructed video-installations – from the sarcastic and bizarre narrative register of Mika Rottenberg.
The Argentine origin’s artist, among the main protagonists of the contemporary world scene, will give life to the environments using the different languages of the film, of the architectural installation and of the sculpture.

EX AFRICA. Stories and identities of an universal art

From March 29th to September 8th at Museo Civico Archeologico, Bologna

Starting from the chronicles of travels and the first contacts between Europeans and Africans, the exhibition aims to present and raise awareness on the value of African Art, not as ethnographic exhibition, but rather telling stories of art, identity, power, sacredness, meetings and dialogues.
An interesting reconstruction of the historical and cultural context from which this Art originates, reaching its influence in the early 20th century European painting, with the Primitivism and the so-called Art Nègre, to lastly touch the areas of contemporary African art.

INFO


Boldini and Fashion

From February 6th to June 2nd at Palazzo dei Diamanti, Ferrara

The artist, established in Paris between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, was known for his the ability to portray the voluptuous elegance of women of the time. The long and fruitful relationship between Boldini and the high fashion system of Paris had great reverberation on his work as a portrait painter, as well as on painters such as Degas and Sargent.
The exhibition offers an exciting journey through paintings, wonderful vintage clothes and precious iconic objects, that tell the relationships between art, fashion and literature in the Belle Époque, immersing you in the refined and sparkling atmosphere of the French metropolis and its elegant hedonism.

INFO


De Pisis. The Poetry of the Moment

Until June 2nd at Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, Ferrara

A wide selection of works by the Ferrarese artist, belonging to the collections of the museum named after him, now closed for restoration.
