The exhibition RI-EVOLUTION - Palazzo della Cultura
The great revolutionaries of Italian art, from Futurism to Street Art, produced by Ass. E-venti APS, Massimo Costantino, Marco Grimaldi and Daniela Arionte, curated by Raffaella Bozzini and Giuseppe Stagnitta with the historical-scientific coordination of Marco Di Capua and set up by the architect Giada Calcagno.
Over 130 works will be exhibited (including the famous "Unique shapes in the continuity of space" by Boccioni, also exhibited at the Moma in New York and the 1992 installation "Giardino delle cose" by the famous Studio Azzurro group), some of which for the first time in Sicily, which present, through a thematic and informal itinerary, 80 of the most important and significant Italian artists of the 20th century who have revolutionized the contemporary artistic and cultural history of our country (from Balla to Boccioni, from De Chirico to Cattelan, Fontana, Manzoni, Burri, Pistoletto) with a tribute to three Sicilian artists: Antonio Sanfilippo, Piero Consagra and Carla Accardi.
The exhibition aims to retrace over a century of the most innovative and revolutionary Italian art by offering an articulated look at the phenomena of transformation of thought from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day: from Futurism to Abstraction, from Arte Povera to Kinetics, from Metaphysics to Trans-avant-garde to arrive at spontaneous and revolutionary Street Art, through an innovative exhibition itinerary that will be articulated in an informal and anachronistic way, through a dialogue between the works in which different artists will be combined, united by the genius and originality of the works themselves.
The goal is an aesthetic revolution for an aesthetic education. Invite visitors to train their eye and mind to perceive works which, regardless of artistic and thought currents, placed side by side outside the theoretical context, better express their essence, sometimes precisely in their opposition and difference . The focus will be on the genius of the artist and his experiments - both in the artistic language and in the applied arts.
