Work in progress

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.


Collezione Maramotti and Icarus Ensemble for the Day of Contemporary Art
11 October 2014
Private view of two new exhibitions and a concert: an event offered to the first 50 people who will present their request
Saturday 11 October 2014 at 6.00pm Collezione Maramotti will inaugurate in its premises a new exhibit: Ritratto di donne. The show places in a dialogue the projects Legami by Alessandra Ariatti and Moll by Chantal Joffe, two painters who have focused their artistic research on portraiture. Both artists will be present at the private view.
On the same occasion the group show Il corpo figurato. Artworks from the Collection 1966-2005 will also be presented, a selection of works from the storage of the Collection about the body and its painting processing, from the Sixties to the recent developments.
The double opening will be introduced by a concert of the Icarus Ensemble, a music gallery dedicated to women with pieces by Robert Schumann, Jean Françaix and Maurice Ravel. The concert will start at 4.00pm in the premises of Icarus (Via IV Novembre 9, Reggio Emilia).

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.
