The treacherous remembrance. Images's seduction from de Chirico to Schifano
From the 1st July to the 27th December 2022, dossier exhibition at Castle's Councils Room.
The dossier-exhibition, realized by Art Museums Service of Ferrara's Municipality and by Ferrara Arte Foundation, edited by Chiara Vorrasi, it's a new appointment of an expository program specific for the city's museum heritage through focuses on artist and thematica areas, for which Boldini and De Pisis have already been protagonist. The attention is on civic collections's works that recall the post-modern season at the ende of the XX century and the renovated fascination for figurative arts.
The expositoy itinerary starts from the "quoting" works of the 50s-60s in which de Chirico borrowed the Baroque pictorial vivaciousness or riconsidered his own producted mannequins of the 10s with different techniques. His example imposes on the youngst generations's attention, such as a pop season international protagonist like Mario Schifano. With his iconic reinterpretations of our civilization's effigies, Schifano wants to reaffirm the power of art splendour facing mass media image's dominance.
It's finally Leonor Fini, who named the route, that highlights the discriminating objectivity that comes with the postmodern retropective look. A misterious pretty boy dressed in a XVIII century costume observes a painting by the same author, realized in many variations of the work, packed with quotes to the Renaissance, Baroque and Symbolist art.
