The new exhibitions of the Museo Novecento
Until April 30, Fabio Mauri, international artist, Elena Mazzi and Emanuele Becheri, two emerging names on the contemporary scene, will be on show until April 30
The Museo Novecento inaugurates the new decade with an interesting generational dialogue, starting on 25 January. In the space on the second floor reserved for the Solo project, the monograph curated by Sergio Risaliti and Giovanni Iovane is dedicated to Fabio Mauri (Rome, 1926-2009), undisputed protagonist of international art. The exhibition offers a cross-section of his creative parabola, from the famous Screens of the Fifties to the unpublished series of the Apocalypse of the Eighties. And then again the Dramophone, in which the image of the record as a "world already recorded" recalls the theme of the predestination of destiny and the "drawings" in the form of collages and installations, such as the Comò-design (1990), composed of several objects from different eras.
On the ground floor the Duel cycle proposes the imaginary journey of the young Italian artist Elena Mazzi (Reggio Emilia, 1984), who from Sicily crosses Italy and leads to Iceland and then China, suggesting different possible trajectories.
For the first time the exhibition revolves around the dialogue-duel with three different works from the permanent collection, by Renato Guttuso, Mario Sironi and Enrico Prampolini (Alberto Della Ragione Collection). On the first and second floor, the Open Field cycle offers a selection of over one hundred works including sculptures and drawings by Emanuele Becheri (Prato, 1973).
An unusual exhibition method - a group of 100 sculptures divided into three adjoining display cases - that "picks up", to "reconstruct" in the exhibition, some shelves of the shelf of Becheri's studio where the artist gradually installs his works.
