Ever since the opening of the Collezione Maramotti, its permanent collection has been flanked by a systematic program of exhibitions and commissioned projects in the areas of the building which specifically function as venues for temporary events. The Collection looks ahead toward the future of art and sees it to be thoroughly continuous and consistent with the attention the Collection has always shown to the evolution of new artistic languages, especially in the area of painting and the critical investigation into the nature of the work of art.
Ritratto di donne
Alessandra Ariatti | Legami
Chantal Joffe | Moll
from 12 October 2014
Alessandra Ariatti and Chantal Joffe have focused their artistic research on portraiture, a figurative tradition which has been constantly part of Western art (but not solely) since the 15th century. The portraits by these two artists, very different from one another, are placed in a sort of mutual dialogue in the exhibit and they speak about women, who become active and passive subjects of the production of the paintings.
