THE SEDUCTION OF THE ANCIENT. FROM PICASSO TO DUCHAMP, FROM DE CHIRICO TO PISTOLETTO

AFFS-OS-7870 (diapo)

In the exhibition, curated by Claudio Spadoni, many of the artists on show demonstrated their interest in the Antiques: not only the artists that had not espoused the avant-garde research and transgressions, but also plenty of those that, despite taking part in movements, groups and innovative trends, had been lured by historical memory in the most varied ways. Such memory has sometimes been rendered as a modern restitution of ancient models, even quoting explicitly those models.

Works of Somaini: Grande trono. Thanatos-athanatos: carneobsoleta, 1968, bronze and silver.
