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.

Fernando Botero’s Via Crucis at Palazzo delle Esposizioni. Works will be on display till the 1st of May.

A painting cycle of this Via Crucis consisting of 27 oil paintings and 34 drawing/watercolours, which he created between 2010 and 2011. during this artistic period, the gentle moves and the full-bodied design of its object appear steady and drive through a confusion of pain and tragedy.

Intensive and strong impressions, pathos and emotion, truth and falsehood, cruelty and silent endurance meet here. His Jesus looks almost like a sumo fighter and heavily depends on the cross. Mary in a blue dree holds him and then he suddenly seems small and vulnerable.
