In Pistoia, looks at art of the second half of the 20th century.

The Pistoia Musei Foundation will present more than seventy works to acquaint the public with Pistoia's art scene of the past century.

From Sept. 19, 2020, to Aug. 22, 2021, Fondazione Pistoia Musei will present more than seventy works in its Palazzo de’ Rossi venue for Glances at Art since the Second World War.

The exhibition curated by Alessandra Acocella, Annamaria Iacuzzi and Caterina Toschi is part of the Pistoia Novecento project, now in its second chapter, dedicated to the Foundation’s permanent collection with works from the collections of Fondazione Caript and Intesa Sanpaolo. The aim of the project is to acquaint the public with Pistoia’s artistic panorama of the last century. The first chapter chronicled the first half of the 20th century.

Glimpses on Art since the Second World War will in fact start from the latter to offer an overview of the second half of the century in Pistoia.

In addition to works by Pistoiese artists present in the permanent collection of Fondazione Pistoia Musei, it will be possible to admire some works by artists who are not local but who have maintained relationships of exchange and dialogue with the city, as well as loans from public and private collections.

The exhibition itinerary is enriched by awide selection of documents, including photographs, letters, posters, invitations, and videos, in order to recount the artistic climate of Pistoia in the broader context of Tuscan, national and international culture.

Following a chronological path, the exhibition is divided into thematic macro-areas: Realism and figuration; Abstract, material, programmed; Object and image; Nature and artifice; and Sign, gesture, environment. Archizoom’s radical design, Gianfranco Chiavacci’s binary logic, Remo Gordigiani’s collages, Gualtiero Nativi, Mario Nigro and Fernando Melani’s abstractionist researches, and Gianni Ruffi’s pop irony will thus be on view.
