Art Night: the creative genius of Marcel Duchamp and his legacy in new generations of contemporary artists

The new episode of Art Night, airing tonight on Rai5 at 9:15 p.m., will discuss Marcel Duchamp and his legacy in the evolution of contemporary art.

Airing tonight, Friday, May 6, on Rai5 starting at 9:15 p.m. will be a new episode of Art Night, dedicated to new talent.

The evening will begin with The Intuition of Duchamp, a documentary written and directed by Guido Talarico, a publisher and journalist expert on contemporary art, produced by FAD srl and Lilium Distribution, and made in collaboration with Rai Cultura. Themes at the center of the film will be the creative genius of Marcel Duchamp (Blainville-Crevon, 1887 - Neuilly-sur-Seine, 1968), his extraordinary legacy and how his revolutionary work forever marked the evolution of modern and contemporary art. Starting with the French master’s breakthrough, the documentary offers a systematic and original account of Italy’s best artistic youth and the fantastic but little-known world behind it. Indeed, the direction is built on an investigation through images that passes through the discovery of magnificent places such as the Quirinale, the National Gallery of Modern Art, the Academy of France at Villa Medici, and the artists’ ateliers.

The narrative binds the shift in perspective that made Duchamp the forerunner of new generations of contemporary artists. Four artists (Elena Bellantoni, Corinna Gosmaro, Eugenio Tibaldi and Gian Maria Tosatti) are joined by the voices of two internationally renowned curators Renata Cristina Mazzantini, curator of Quirinale Contemporaneo, and Sam Stourdzé, director of the Academy of France in Rome, Villa Medici to explain the evolution of art also in its relationship with large public institutions, through a richly illustrated narrative that well represents the diversity of styles, genres, environments and contaminations.

At the end of The Intuition of Duchamp, Art night continues with Mammamare, a documentary by Francesca Marra, Giovanni Benedetto Matteucci, written with Lucrezia Mariotti, produced by RUFA as part of the Audiovisual Documentation Techniques Course taught by Professor Christian Angeli.

A confrontation between young students and Pietro Ruffo, among the most appreciated Italian artists of recent years, from which emerges a dialogue that crosses life and art, where one is revealed to be influenced by the other. Accompanying Pietro Ruffo on this journey is his mother Francesca del Drago, who through a long-distance dialogue transports the audience to tales of the past. Like a castaway, the artist makes a journey in search of his way, leading to the creation of one of his most recent works: Migrant, exhibited in Rome in Villa Borghese’s Deer Park.
