November 19, 2016

“LOVE. Contemporary Art meets Love” is the title of the exhibition at Chiostro del Bramante from September 29th, 2016 till February 19th, 2017. An exhibition which add to the great names of contemporary art history, the chance to take pictures, “tag” with the hashtag #chiostrolove, and follow the thematic routes with audio guide (included in the ticket price) for adults and children. Peculiarities are the wall of love, where you can leave messages and thoughts, and the kissing point, where you can stop and take a kissing selfie.


Among the artists, there are some of the most famous exponents of Pop Art, such as Robert Indiana with his sculptural poems LOVE, which are also the logo of the exhibition; Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Gilbert & George, Francesco Vezzoli, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Francesco Clemente – star of our Transavantgarde – and Yayoi Kusama whose installation is absolutely amazing: Infinity Mirrored room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, where in a game of mirrors and lights you find yourself completely involved in the work of art itself.


An exhibition not to be missed in one of the most charming exhibition spaces of Rome.

Marc Chagall in Rome. The great russian-born artist who spent a lot of his life in France is back in Rome after the exhibitions of 2006 at Vittoriano and 2012 at Ara Pacis.

The exhibition is produced and organized by DART Chiostro del Bramante and Arthemisia Group and it displays over 150 works, featuring drawings and watercolours which tell the deep love between the artist and his wife Bella Rosenfeld. This unique relationship was for Chagall a fundamental and constant source of inspiration. Another relevant source of inspiration was the jewish tradition as well as his native soil -especially Vitebsk- which he had to leave too soon because of the 2nd World War. In the exhibition it also obvious the influence of the French avant-garde.

Marc Chagall “Love and Life”.
