PHOTO EXHIBITION | The Hidden Theatre. A story in images @ Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto
Jul 21 2018 – Dec 31 2019 all-day
<!--:it-->MOSTRA FOTOGRAFICA | Il teatro nascosto. Una storia per immagini<!--:--><!--:en-->PHOTO EXHIBITION | The Hidden Theatre. A story in images<!--:--> @ Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The exhibition The Hidden Theatre. A story in images is a collection of unpublished photographs dating back to the years of the discovery of the Roman Theatre of Spoleto and its unearthing, from 1938 to 1960.

The exhibition, promoted by the Polo Museale dell’Umbria – Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto, in collaboration with Astra onlus and the Archivio di Stato di Perugia, section of Spoleto, shows photographs coming from the Accademia Etrusca di Cortona and from the archive of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell’Umbria. The exhibition reveals unpublished aspects of the discovery of the Roman theatre and the transformation of the complex of S.Agata from a judicial prison (1867-1957) to a museum.

The history of the monastery of S. Agata – already known thanks to the research of G. Curti, S. Di Sante Coaccioli, S. Gubbiotti, resulting in the 2011 documented book “The Roman Theatre and the former monastery of S.Agata. Chronicle of its transformations” – is now enriched by photographs taken by the then inspector archaeologist Umberto Ciotti, who documented every step of the demolition and excavation work.

Alberto Emiliano Durante – OSSA (bones) @ Galleria ADD-art
Sep 16 – Nov 30 all-day
<!--:it-->Alberto Emiliano Durante - OSSA<!--:--><!--:en-->Alberto Emiliano Durante - OSSA (bones)<!--:--> @ Galleria ADD-art | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The opening of the exhibition Ossa, featuring works by Alberto Emiliano Durante, will take place on Sunday, September 16 at 18, at the ADD-art gallery in Spoleto.

Ossa is a project on which the artist has worked for more than a year and which will be shared with the public for the first time. A research on ‘primitive’ materials, marble, wood and iron, which have always shaped idols, warriors and temples: archetypes that Durante explores in a contemporary key.

The value of the archetype and testimony of Durante’s works is confirmed by the genesis of the project: “While I was crossing the woods of Calcata I found numerous broken bones of animals. Looking at the white bones that emerged among the vegetation and trees, I perceived their purity and value as archetypes. It seemed that they were there to witness the passage of a past life, of an event that had taken place. The end and the beginning of a new path”. Ossa (Bones) is therefore the title chosen for this project, because it refers to the load-bearing structure of the individual, to what remains even beyond life, but also and above all to one of the first materials manipulated by Man for ritual and artistic purposes.

This new creative rite, primitive but permeated by a completely contemporary creativity, lives again today in the premises of ADD-art and will remain open until November 30.

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, from 27 October 2018 to 24 February 2019
Toru Hamada and Angelo Dozio
Opening: Saturday, October 27 at 12:00

TORU HAMADA – Anthological

The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and Italo Bergantini, and organized in collaboration with Romberg Contemporanea. After the placement in June, during the Festival dei Due Mondi, of one of his sculptures in Carrara marble in front of the Teatro Nuovo, today comes a large exhibition that tells us about his poetic and inspired painting … The life of Toru Hamada resembles the processing cycle of his art. First of all, one feels the atavistic bond with Japan, ascribable to a state of being that favours atmospheric silence, the firmness of the gaze, the discipline between body and spirit. At the same time, one feels the second homeland in Europe, first in Pietrasanta and then in the French countryside of Saint-Lubin-de-la-Haye, two places of solid culture that have welcomed both the man and the artist. Asia and Europe, two continents that today sum up in this Umbrian experience, in the heart of a Spoleto that has always conceived harmony between distant worlds.

ANGELO DOZIO – The discipline of constant doubt

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive’s historical investigation continues among Italian artists who deserve a more exhaustive evaluation of their work over ten years. After Gianfranco Chiavacci, Gastone Biggi, Salvatore Emblema and Giuseppe Biasio, it is now the turn of Angelo Dozio with an anthological exhibition set up between the white rooms of the Piano Mostre and the noble furnishings of the Piano Nobile.
The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani: “Reinterpreting the cycles of a long career, Angelo Dozio highlights a consistent value in the theme of transcendence. Technological intuition, the link with town planning and architecture, the implicit presence of sound, the clairvoyance of digital language are present, but in the end there’s a metaphysical suspension that emerges and surpasses the rest, an iconographic system that returns to the lines of the sacred cross, the curves of the Greek and Roman capitals, to the Florentine two-tone marble, to the plan of churches and basilicas, to the design of ideal cities… Dozio’s geometry goes beyond history and climbs into the values of the Absolute, where only painting can get, where design incorporates morality, where Beauty thinks beyond worldly contingencies.”

The opening of the event will take place on Friday, December 7 at 11 am at the Rocca Albornoz in Spoleto.
At 4 p.m. on the same day, the exhibition will also be inaugurated and presented at the Palazzo Ducale in Gubbio.

WHAT
Exempla is an exhibition and a narration of the different possible variants of the discourse on things and objects in everyday life, made by creators who design them and whose uniqueness lies in the gestures of the hands with which they are made. Exempla exhibits artifacts – things produced by craftsmen – capable of maintaining their functional value without losing the beauty and identity most typically related to the unique work. Exempla will show these artifacts/manufactures and will organize meetings with the artists invited to exhibit, seminars on the system of things and objects, book presentations, readings of poets and collective public readings to mark the plural nature of things and highlight the resonances that live in them.
Exempla is an exhibition of savoir-faire and faire-savoir, the beauty of small things in everyday life.

PICASSO. INTIMATE PORTRAIT | Photos by Edward Quinn @ Palazzo Bufalini

PICASSO. RITRATTO INTIMO – PICASSO. INTIMATE PORTRAIT
Photos by Edward Quinn

15 December 2018 – 31 March 2019
MAG Palazzo Bufalini Piazza Duomo Spoleto

On the occasion of the forty-fifth anniversary of his death, and in conjunction with numerous exhibitions around the world dedicated to him, Spoleto celebrates the genius of the Spanish artist with the exhibition PICASSO. INTIMATE PORTRAIT Photos by Edward Quinn, presenting a large series of shots, some of them unpublished, taken by Edward Quinn (Dublin 1920-Switzerland 1997), the photojournalist who followed Picasso (1881-1973) to the Côte d’Azur and portrayed him, with his permission, for about twenty years.

From December 15, 2018 to March 31, 2019, MAG MetaMorfosi Art Gallery in Palazzo Bufalini in Piazza Duomo will feature about eighty photos (two sizes on display 40×50 and 30×40 cm) that tell the story of an absolutely private Picasso: among his women, lovers and friends, among his children, the result of many passions over the years, among the many friends and acquaintances who populated his canvases as well as the laid tables and the beaches by the sea. As many as 26 of these photos are unpublished and never printed before. The photos come from the Quinn Archive, Zurich, and were selected by the exhibition’s curator, Wolfgang Frei, the photographer’s nephew.

The exhibition, produced and organized by MetaMorfosi under the patronage of the City of Spoleto, is the result of the special friendship that linked Picasso to Edward Quinn, as his nephew explains by reconstructing their first meeting on the Côte d’Azur: “”Lui, il ne me dérange pas”, (“He does not bother me”) says Picasso after having been photographed for the first time during his work on March 23, 1953. So Quinn became one of the few photographers who was allowed to photograph him at work and who was accepted in his private life.

Born in 1920, Quinn moved to Munich in the late 1940s. Probably there has never been a place like the Côte d’Azur of the 1950s and 1960s where so many stars, politicians and artists have lived or spent their holidays. One of the personalities who settled on the Côte d’Azur was Picasso: he already was a star. Quinn managed to take his first photos of Picasso with his two children in 1951. The artist liked the photos and agreed to the request for further shots. Two years later, the first photo shoot took place with Picasso working with ceramics. Quinn did not belong to the breed of the insistent paparazzi, like tabloid photographers. In this he was too much of an Irish gentleman. He soon became a friend of Picasso, as shown by the 1954 dedication to the linocut “Toros en Vallauris”: “Para el amigo Quinn – el buen fotógrafo”.

“Even if Quinn – Frei tells us – was a dear friend, it was almost never possible to make an appointment with Picasso in advance. Often Picasso gave the order not to be disturbed. Almost all visits were unexpected and improvised. However, this was in line with Quinn’s way of working: his shots did not need long technical preparations. He didn’t use the tripod and refused to artificially light the rooms and have Picasso pose for a photo. The aim was to show under what conditions the artist created his works”.

The objective was unconventional, credible, authentic, documentary photography. The photographs on display, many of which have never been published, reveal how the artist was inspired by everyday things and people, but also by the extraordinary things that surrounded him. In this vision of his personality, of the people behind the images, also clichés about reality and opposites become visible: free time alongside work, everyday life in relation to art, Casanova and the family man, the clown and the extrovert joker, but also the very attentive master.

A fascinating intimate portrait of the artist that covers a period of over 20 years and tells an unusual Picasso, authentic and rich in humanity.

The Fun before the theater – Theatrical mediation for children @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci" - Palazzo Mauri - Sezione ragazzi
Dec 15 @ 11:00

As in past years, Spoleto’s Department of Culture organizes The fun before the theatre – as the children called it last year – the project of theatrical mediation held by the Cultural Association Il Teodelapio in the person of Lorella Natalizi, teacher of theatre for children.

The meetings are linked to La Domenica dei Sogni family theatre festival and will be held on the Saturdays preceding the Sunday shows, at 11 a.m. at the Municipal Library.

Through an image, a piece of text or a theatre play, the main theme of each show will be explored: friendship, relationship, diversity, insecurities, the desire for poetry.
