L’Arte Inquieta

L'urgenza della creazione

Commissariat: Giorgio Bedoni, Johann Feilacher and Claudio Spadoni

An exhibition itinerary exploring the theme of identity, a restless identity that questions our time, through painting, sculpture, drawing, graphics and artists’ books by 57 artists.

The project, which explores the multiple facets of identity, presents the public with artists who have used innovative languages to look at their own inner reality and the world around them: gazes that are increasingly important in today’s present, where arte inquieta (‘restless art’) is the upshot of personal and collective occurrences, of research, of that expressive urgency of artistsdisplaying their own feverish activity, and with unique works still capable of surprising us.
An exhibition where the authors of the founding poetics of our modernity interface with works sometimes from excluded worlds, today considered a precious and necessary archive of imagery: art brut, therefore, I presented as visionary and with unprecedented languages, just as the great masters of the avant-garde who open the exhibition sections had already sensed: Paul Klee, as early as 1912, Max Ernst and Surrealism, through to Jean Dubuffetin 1945.
