LOVE. Contemporary Art meets Love – Chiostro del Bramante

19 Nov
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.

Edward Hopper at Vittoriano. October 1, 2016 till February 12, 2017

 

“If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.”

 

It’s the artist himself, with one of his most famous quotes, to explain his philosophy and his desire to make art. The exhibition in fact, through approximately 60 works divided into six sections, is a cross section into the production of Hopper, as well as an intense and accurate study of American society, especially the 50’s and 60’s of the ‘900. His typically American realism, made of intimate portraits, of solitude and great upsets their age to which he belonged, was a great inspiration for many filmmakers, like Hitchcock, Silver, Wenders, Antonioni and the Coen brothers; from here, a brand new section of the exhibition illustrates precisely this relationship of mutual love with cinema.

The project of MACRO, Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, began in the late nineteenth century as a Municipal Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, established by the City of Rome as a result of the many acquisitions of works of Fine Arts Exposition of 1883. It is located in the Nomentano district.

Over the years it has changed many locations, with the consequent transfer of the works, which, at first dispersed, were later gathered and reordered to its present location in the former Peroni factory, made available by the City of Rome as the seat of the Museum.

The expansion of the museum was then entrusted to the French architect Odile Decq in 2001, and the following year two pavilions of the former slaughterhouse in Testaccio were used as a branch office – the MACRO Future or MACRO Testaccio – The reopening final took place in 2010.

The collection of Macro counts about 600 works by Italian artists from the second half of the twentieth century, and that includes artistic movements as Group Form 1, Arte Povera, School of People’s Square, to the latest generation, through the Trans up to Luigi Alders and Piero Pizzi Cannella.

The restoration of the Trevi Fountain brings to an end. It began in June 2014, fully financed by the fashion house Fendi and saw 26 restorers of the superintendent for Cultural Heritage of Rome Capital working hard. During all these months of maintenance and renovation, it was possible to watch the restoration project, thanks to the walkaways and the Plexiglas panels, which allowed tourists and visitors to access the fountain. The eighteenth-century masterpiece of Nicola Salvi, reopened permanently on November 3.
