Milan: Exhibitions in September

Pre-Raphaelites. Love and desire

Palazzo Reale / 19 June - 6 October 2019
An exhibition, organized in collaboration with Tate Britain in London, which is based on the famous Pre-Raphaelite art collection of the London museum and includes iconic paintings that are difficult to obtain, such as Ophelia (1851-1852) by John Everett Millais and Lady of Shalott (1888) by John William Waterhouse. Next to similar masterpieces, lesser-known paintings, are forming a visually stunning ensemble. Curated by Carol Jacobi, Curator British Art 1850 - 1915 of Tate Britain, the exhibition, divided into eight thematic sections, illustrates the impact produced by the movement and the centrality, in their poetic, of the "Italian" inspiration, demonstrating how the pre-Raphaelite charm is still extraordinarily alive.

Ugo Nespolo. Outside the box

Palazzo Reale / July - September 2019
Ugo Nespolo is a many-sided artist who works in a wide field of disciplines, from painting to cinema, to sculpture. This Milanese exhibition, curated by Studio Nespolo, stages a course that winds chronologically from the late sixties to the present day to show the eclecticism of an artist who has always put into practice an ironic and irreverent attitude, never enslaved by fashions and obligations, the ironic utopia of an absolute nespocracy.

Guido Pajetta. Myths and figures between form and color

Palazzo Reale / July - September 2019
Guido Pajetta, more than other artists, has not only crossed almost entirely the twentieth century, but has lived it in its many characteristics and contradictions. His work brings us back to historical facts, to missing and sometimes forgotten figures, to choices of style and of taste that have influenced the culture of the time. The exhibition, curated by Paolo Biscottini, does not simply want to present a sequence of works of art, but demonstrate how in them the human and artistic story mixes with the historical one, offering itself as a pedagogical occasion for an era that young people know little about.

Anna Maria Maiolino.
O amor se faz revolucionário

PAC Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea / 29 March – 1 September 2019
Drawing inspiration from the daily feminine imagination and the experience of an oppressive and censoring dictatorship - that of Brazil in the 70s and 80s - Anna Maria Maiolino, Italian by birth and Brazilian by adoption, creates works rich of vital energy. Through performance, sculpture, video, photography and drawing the artist investigates human relationships, difficulties of communication and expression, on the border between human physicality and an intimate and spiritual sphere. For the exhibition at PAC, curated by Diego Sileo, the artist has created a site specific installation and a new performance. Finissage of the exhibition Monday 2 September.
