> Exhibition sheet

A virtual tour of the Shepard Fairey exhibition "3 Decades of Dissent" in the company of Claudio Crescentini, one of the exhibition's curators. A video traces the salient themes of the 30 years of dissent of the American artist, an experimenter in multiple languages, styles and political messages - including the fight for peace and against racial violence, the defence of human dignity and gender, the protection of the environment - focusing on some of the 30 most representative works on display.

> Exhibition sheet

Inspired by the exhibition, the video Pensieri diversi da artiste diverse has as its main characters art, experience, the present and the future in a comparison of voices, generations and experiences of the artists present in the exhibition Le altre opere. Artisti che collezionano artisti. Contributions by: Lucilla Catania, Licia Galizia, Silvia Giambrone, Donatella Landi, Myriam Laplante, Adele Lotito, Roberta Maola, Daniela Monaci, Veronica Montanino, Laura Palmieri, Daniela Perego, Claudia Quintieri, Fiorella Rizzo.

Rome as the centre of contemporary art. Thanks to a successful project, launched in February 2020, 86 artists will take turns in five museums, according to a strict alphabetical division and with a documentary perspective of the art present in the capital today. An innovative dialogue that allows us to appreciate the artistic choices of the authors, who have the opportunity to interact with the works they love and have collected in the prestigious Capitoline museums.

EXHIBITION La rivoluzione della visione

> Exhibition sheet

Claudio Crescentini recounts the evolution of an aesthetic revolution, that of the Bauhaus, with the works of one of its main protagonists, Moholy-Nagy, and the team of other young Hungarian artists who contributed to changing, with him, the optics of art in the 1920s and 1930s in Europe.

Daniela Vasta describes the section devoted to photographic experimentation: the artist did not consider himself a photographer, but believed that the photogram and photography were equivalent to painting with light, and could be a tool for free experimentation without rules.

Arianna Angelelli illustrates the section 'Budapest in Rome. Hungarian artists in the capital between the two wars", with works from the collection of the Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale and dedicated to Hungarian artists active in the capital between the 1910s and the early 1940s.

EXHIBITION Donne. Corpo e immagine tra simbolo e rivoluzione

> Exhibition sheet

The representation of women, their role and their presence in the world of work. A true visual memory of almost a century of our country. Female images to be discovered, shown and enhanced along a chronological line: from the woman who fought but was subjected to male authority during the fascist period.

Auspicium is an unedited and edited video performance by Roman artist Donatella Vici. The performance was carried out in the cloister-garden of the Gallery as part of the events linked to the exhibition Donne. Corpo e imagine fra simbolo e rivoluzione. Starting from the building in Via Crispi, Donatella Vici imagined an action centred on the symbol of water, strongly imbued with evocative and spiritual elements. The diphonic chant performed by the artist, in the guise of a priestess, and the original music by Maestro Mauro Bagella create a suspended and engaging sound environment. The messages and verses transcribed on the surface of the leaves and then imprisoned inside the blocks of ice become, as they free themselves, a powerful metaphor for life and a wish for rebirth and regeneration.

EVENT Ti scrivo solo di domenica (1977)

The author Bianca Pucciarelli, known as Tomaso Binga, reads the epistolary diary of a woman who, for an entire year, writes to a friend every Sunday, considering this to be the only day of the week for women. Organised by the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali. The reading is cadenced by the punctual ticking of a metronome, while in the final part the notes of a liturgical chant become more and more insistent. Thus a year of impressions, descriptions and messages flows before our eyes, not always clearly decipherable, in an accumulation that produces the sensation of a slow flow of dreams and projects that shrink and fall away.
