Opening: October 14th, 2017 h 5pm — 8pm
Exhibition curated by Anna Daneri and Francesca Serrati
For the resumption of exhibition programming in the fall, and for the occasion of the Giornata del Contemporaneo, this year Villa Croce presents a major project by the artist Stefano Arienti, Finestre Meridiane. Intersections with the collection of Villa Croce, organized along the spaces of the piano nobile of the villa, starting from the large entrance staircase.
The show is organized as a dialogue between a body of works never shown before by the artist, the Meridiane (Sundials) made starting in 2012, and a selection of works from the museum’s collection, like a sampling of its history.
The title suggest the nature of the exhibition project itself: the works – about 80 in number – by Stefano Arienti, with a uniform format in paper and plaster, are made in close relation to the sun and its movements. The Meridiane are drawn with light, at the window in the artist’s home or studio, with a technique developed by Arienti over the years, in which he directly translates, with his own body, the variations of light through the colors selected from moment to moment. The show also offers a perspective on the collection of the museum, whose spaces are paced by large windows facing south.
As an ideal continuation of the exhibition at Villa Croce, on 1 December the MAN museum of Nuoro will present An Abstract Vision. Works from the Collection of Maria Cernuschi Ghiringhelli, a show that will intensify knowledge of this fundamental collection of art.
