EMILIO ISGRÒ. Modello Italia (2013 – 1964)

July 30th, 2013 by admin


Emilio Isgrò is one of the most illustrious and best-known names on the international art scene of the second half of the 20th century and the early 21st century. Rome’s National Gallery of Modern Art (GNAM) is dedicating an extraordinary exhibition to this great Italian artist, painter, poet and playwright. The intention of this “exposition in reverse” is to display and demonstrate how relevant Isgrò’s work is today as well as to observe how closely his latest works are linked to his first ones. The spectacular and complex installations of his latest period are made up of elements which had been outlined as far back as the 1960’s – 70’s with themes and early sketches that were developed and elaborated. The show opens in the halls located on the museum’s ground floor and features works created in the last five years while a selection of the artist’s best known works are on display on the floor above: Volkswagen (1964), Jacqueline (1965), Enciclopedia Treccani (1970) as well as the first Libri cancellati (Erased books), Telex, Semi d’arancia (Orange pits), Particolare ingrandito di Gianni Agnelli (Enlarged detail of Gianni Agnelli) up until the harrowing Ora italiana (1985) inspired by the Bologna massacre.
