Show Case: Exhibiting the Archive
Show Case and Special Opening Saturday 19 June
From 17 June, in conjunction with the 2021 Fotografia Europea Festival (inspired by Gianni Rodari’s poetic invitation: “On the Moon and on Earth / Make way for Dreamers!”) and as a follow-up to the 2019 exhibition Rehang : Archives, Collezione Maramotti offers a new take on its permanent exhibition, Show Case: Exhibiting the Archive, through a selection of documents and materials from its library and archive.
Stretching through the galleries that permanently house over two hundred works from the 1950s to the present, a series of temporary vitrines will showcase photos, papers, drawings, artists’ books, and ephemera from some of the artists on view, to provide broader context for their work and fresh perspective on the exhibition.
The material related to Alighiero Boetti, Eliseo Mattiacci, Mario Schifano, Pino Pascali, Jannis Kounellis, Sergio Lombardo and Cesare Tacchi, on the first floor, shows the vibrant artistic ferment of the 1960s and ‘70s in Italy. On the second floor, the energy and creativity of the New York painting scene in the ’80s and ’90s is described through documentation about the work of Eric Fischl, Julian Schnabel and Ellen Gallagher.
This material rounds out the digital content that has been added to the rooms via QR codes since 2020, to offer new insights on the collection.
On Saturday 19 June, it will be possible to visit the permanent collection without a guided tour.
