Exhibition | Convergenze. Notargiacomo and the Spoleto Modern Art Gallery Collection @ Palazzo Collicola
Dec 14 2019 – Mar 8 2020 all-day

Convergenze. Notargiacomo and the Spoleto Modern Art Gallery Collection
curated by Marco Tonelli
“G. Carandente” Modern Art Gallery
PALAZZO COLLICOLA – Spoleto
14 December 2019 – 8 March 2020

Inauguration
Saturday 14 December 2019 – h 11.30

Open: Friday, Saturday and Sunday
10:30 – 13:00 / 15:00 – 17:30

In many ways, Gianfranco Notargiacomo is a forerunner of non-codified languages, capable of moving from form to image, from structure to painting with the same skill and intelligence. Precisely for this reason it represented the solution to contrasting, intertwined nodes, opposing with one another, divergent and converging at the same time.

The Spoleto Modern Art Gallery has a rich deposit of works, mostly donations or acquisitions made over the years, some of which are destined to rotate and leave the stores from time to time. 

Gianfranco Notargiacomo accepted the invitation to seek a dialogue with the artists and the works of the collection preserved in the deposits of Santo Chiodo, finding the keystone of the curatorial proposal in about twenty paintings by authors with whom he had an actual relationship, such as Burri, Sadun, Bendini, Pace, Vacchi, Asdrubali, Rossano, Gandini, Cascella, Ceroli, Boille, Cotani, Mattiacci, Luzzi, Pozzati.

The Convergenze exhibition opens at Palazzo Collicola Saturday 14 December at 11.30 and will be visitable till Synday 8 March 2020. The exhibition project takes the title from the famous installation Le nostre divergenze, the artist’s first personal exhibition held in Rome in 1971 at Plinio De Martiis’ La Tartaruga Gallery, then repeated several times over the decades in various museums, including the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome: over two hundred colored plastic dolls that invade the gallery in all its spaces. The first time it was exhibited in public the installation was defined in the Herald Tribune by Edith Schloss as “The most surprising show”. 

In the spaces of the ground floor of Palazzo Collicola, right where the permanent collection of the Gallery of Modern Art was once located, about 140 little men will talk with the works selected from the collection’s deposit, in a continuous flow between memory and present, as if they were witnesses enchanted by an apparition, by an unveiling. On the occasion of the Notargiacomo exhibition, he will donate one of his sculptures, a typical Takete, to the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Spoleto, which will also be part of the exhibition along with other sculptures in the series, symbolically bringing together his works with those of the museum. During the exhibition, a public meeting will be held in which the artist will illustrate his links with the individual artists with whom he has chosen to dialogue. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the RUFA of Rome. 

The exhibition will be open from Friday to Sunday, on Thursday 26 December and on Monday 6 January 2020 from 10.30 to 13.00 and from 15.00 to 17.30.

Gianfranco Notargiacomo (Rome, 1945) In the 1970s he holds exhibitions at the Galleria La Tartaruga di Roma, Galleria La Salita, Palazzo delle Esposizioni. In 1980 he participates to the exhibition conceived by Flavio Caroli Magico Primario, at the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara. The deep relation with Emilio Vedova dates to this period, and led to Vedova proposing him for the Premio della Presidenza della Repubblica at the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca. In 1982, 1986 and 2011 he is invited to the Venice Biennale di Venezia; in the 1980s he holds personal exhibitions  at Castel Sant’Elmo, Naples, Casa del Mantegna in Mantua, Museo Laboratorio of the Università La Sapienza in Rome, Palazzo Reale in Milan. Nel 2009 tiene la mostra Le nostre divergenze 1971-2009 curata da Mariastella Margozzi alla Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna di Roma. In 2011 he is in Hangzhou, China, by the Zhejiang Daily Ideal Culture Development Company, then in Shanghai, at the Heng Yuanxiang Museum, where he creates two large Takète. In 2013 at the Forte Malatesta in Ascoli Piceno he holds his exhibition A grandi linee. Among the many collective exhibitions, he is featured in the VIIIth and in the XIth Biennale de Paris and in the Sydney Biennale, he exhibited at the Hayward Gallery in London, at the Frankfurter Kunstverein, at the São Paulo Museum in Brasil, at the Taiwan Museum of Art and he is featured in the collection Artisti Italiani del XX secolo at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He taught at the Academy of Fine Arts in L’Aquila, Florence and Rome, where in 2015 he is nominated Maestro Accademico Emerito. In 2013, by iniziative of the President of the Republic, he is awarded  the honour of Commendatore Ordine al Merito of the Republic of Italy.

Exhibition | Raspi: Collages and Paintings 1959-1963 @ Palazzo Collicola

RASPI: COLLAGES AND PAINTINGS 1959-1963

Raspi: Collages and paintings 1959 – 1963

The exhibition focuses on a Spoletan artist who as a member of the Spoleto Six and whose works are included in the Modern Art Gallery’s collection.

An experimentation that originated between 1958 and 1964, the Collages represent the climax of an importsant aesthetic research by Piero Raspi. Since the earliest 1958 works, still as a member of the Six, their abstract, refined architectures of simple, overlapping sheets seem to be crossed by vital leaps that become more and more marked over time. In the early 1960s, the structure of the works becomes more dynamic with the emergence, among the layers of paper, of components such as photographs, letters and three-dimensional objects. This reference to everyday reality gives the Collages an energy of non-sense, which puts the works closer to the contemporary new-dada decontextualization of American Robert Rauschenberg.

The production alternates with large informal paintings, albeit with obvious differences: from dimensions to materials, from chromatic to spatial impact. But what most differentiates the paintings from the Collages is the presence in the latter of an ironic vein, light and subtle like a veil. A common characteristic of all is the fact that for years they have been hidden in the archives of the author and for this reason they are absolutely new to some.

The exhibition inaugurates in Palazzo Collicola on Saturday 14 December at 11.30 and will be visitable till Sunday 8 March 2020, from Friday to Sunday, on Thursday 26 December 2019 and on Monday 6 January 2020 from 10.30 to 13.00 and from 15.00 to 17.30.

Piero Raspi – Born on 12 February, 1926 in Spoleto. He starts his fortunate artistic career within post-Cubism and founds the Group of Spoleto in the early 1950s. In the second half of the 1950s the main reference becomes the informal sphere, from which he learns new expressive possibilities of the matter outside of any surviving figurative need. In 1957 he joins the artists gravitating around the gallery “L’Attico” in Rome, where he exhibits repeatedly. In 1958 he participates in the Venice Biennale, gathering international fame. In this period he is identified as one of the protagonist of materic informalism, akin to Burri and Tàpies. In the early 1960s he holds many personal and collective exhibitions in Italy, including the Venice Biennale and the Rome Quadriennale. Abroad he exhibits in London, Los Angeles, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Stuttgart, Paris, Brussels, Cologne Montreal, Madrid, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Chicago, Lucerne, Tel Aviv, Salzburg, Zurich and Tokyo. In 1967 he settles in Pennsylvania and starts confronting himself with Pop Art. In this period he paints a series of works that would eventually exhibit in Philadelphia and New York. In 1978, a new pictorial phase starts, marked by an unprecedented chromatism. With the beginning of the new millennium, in addition to the creation of monochromes, he embraces other forms of creative expression and makes use of new materials such as steel. In 2001 in Spoleto, at the Albornoz Palace, he realizes a wall sculpture in steel plates, where he transfers the abstract and refined architecture of the Collages made since the late 1950s. Starting from the second decade of the 2000s, he focuses on the critical revision and cataloging of his works, as well as on the restoration of some papers and Collages of the 1950s and 1960s.

La Domenica dei Sogni – Theatre for Families 12th edition @ Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti
Feb 2 @ 16:30

The theatre-for-families festival La Domenica dei Sogni, conceived to offer the families the magic of the world of theatre, returns for its 12th edition.

The 2019-2020 programme includes five new shows at the Teatro Nuovo Menotti, on Sundays at 16.30, attentively chosen from the repertoires of the best Italian companies.

This year the first two scheduled showws are free, thanks to the project “Arriva il teatro!”, promoted by Fontemaggiore, Mibact and Regione Umbria, to re-establish a cultural offer in the areas struck by the 2016 earthquake in central Italy, to enhance social interaction, tourist promotion and the visibility of the cultural and environmental heritage.

But there are also confirmations along with the many new features, ie the renewed collaboration with Fontemaggiore, one of the most recognized and appreciated family theatre companies to which we owe the first two shows, and with the “Library goes to Theatre” project, which involves the loan of books as a further possibility of deepening all those emotions and suggestions experienced on the scene, in a fertile encounter between languages and arts. 

The season opens Sunday 17 November with Mago per Svago by l’Abile Teatro, that was awarded at the Festival Clown&Clown in Monte San Giusto in 2018 and at the Milano Clown Festival 2018.
FREE ADMISSION

Teatro Nuovo “Gian Carlo Menotti”
Tempesta is but another Aterballetto’s challenge: to test the dance and its ability to tell stories and characters of a theatrical narration, illuminating them in an original way and observing them from new points of view, guaranteeing a clear legibility of the history of the Bard, without renouncing to open visionary dimensions.

So we will start from a storm, the one that we can imagine led Prospero and Miranda to be shipwrecked on the island, to then retrace the line of events outlined by Shakespeare, highlighting some themes of strong human depth, to go to the heart of one of the most extraordinary inventions designed for the stage by the great English writer.

Nostalgia di Dio

Teatro Caio Melisso – Spazio Carla Fendi
Homesickness. This could be an alternative title of this show. I consider the affections to be the home, and the affections are the only dimension left that I relate to the sacred. The world limits us, the house welcomes us and expands us. It is in this powerful and affectionate flowering that children are born, who are the other question on which this spectacle is tied, without answering it.
In particular, I mean the children at their earliest stages, small, omnipotent Gods. Influenced by the fable we’ve been told, illustrated by the endless Madonnas with Child, my Catholic child imaginary – which is the only one I have, as probably many of us who would later give up – has rooted there. It is there, before the age of 10, on those images, that the indelible impression was formed: that of a child-God, seen from the perspective of the mother.
In short, God, for me, is more a son than a father. A son who, if not really a God, is at least almighty. This is according to Freud what we all are for a short time. How can we not want to go back?
Nostalgia di Dio moves therefore in this strange crossing between the homesickness and the nostalgia of the omnipotent childhood, which has matured inside me lately, without understanding it yet completely.
All children are children. God is a child. God is a son. Are all children God? Who knows. However, one thing is known: for mothers, children, they never grow up.

In short, God, for me, is more a son than a father. A son who, if not really a God, is at least almighty. This is according to Freud what we all are for a short time. How can we not want to go back?
Nostalgia di Dio moves therefore in this strange crossing between the homesickness and the nostalgia of the omnipotent childhood, which has matured inside me lately, without understanding it yet completely.
All children are children. God is a child. God is a son. Are all children God? Who knows. However, one thing is known: for mothers, children, they never grow up.

LE AFFINITÀ ELETTIVE
Tuesday 24 marzo 2020 at 21.00
Teatro Nuovo “Gian Carlo Menotti”
A great game of balances and contrasts between being and having to be, between instinct and reason, between sensuality and morality, between immediacy and reflection, between destiny and will, is featured in Goethe’s Le Affinità Elettive. The attempt is to show the forces that emerge from the dissolution of marriage. Passion loses all its right, its happiness and its power when it tries to come to terms with the wealthy and guaranteed bourgeois life. After a long separation, Carlotta and Edoardo get together and decide to get married and engage in such stubborn defense of their relationship, that they isolate themselves in a secluded place. However, the much sought-after balance is suddenly upset by the arrival of a friend of Edoardo, the Captain, followed shortly after by the arrival of Carlotta’s niece, Ottilia. The conjugal balance between Carlotta and Edoardo goes into crisis and the elective affinities begin to progressively work and modify, and overturn the bonds.

EXHIBITION | Gianni Asdrubali: Surfing With The Alien @ Palazzo Collicola

<!--:it-->MOSTRA | Surfing with the Alien di Gianni Asdrubali<!--:--><!--:en-->EXHIBITION | Gianni Asdrubali: Surfing With The Alien<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola

Gianni Asdrubali: Surfing with the Alien
curated by Marco Tonelli and Bruno Corà
Palazzo Collicola
Inauguration: Saturday 27 June 2020 – h 11.00

Almost twenty-five years later, Gianni Asdrubali (Tuscania, 1955) is again a protagonist in Spoleto, with a solo exhibition that takes stock of the work of one of the most interesting contemporary Italian painters, who established himself on the national and international scene as an innovator of abstract, aniconic and gestural research since the 1980s.

The exhibition, curated by Marco Tonelli (Director of Palazzo Collicola) and Bruno Corà (President of the Foundation Palazzo Albizzini Collezione Burri and member of Palazzo Collicola’s Scientific Committee), is a retrospective of his work through the most representative and enigmatic as well as evocative cycles of paintings such as Aggroblanda, Trigombo, Malumazac, Zeimekke, Azota, Stoide, Azotrumbo, Tromboloide.

Scheduled for 21 March, suspended due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the exhibition vibrantly announces the reopening of Palazzo Collicola and its activities, albeit with many changes in programming due to the pandemic.

The exhibition’s title Surfing with the Alien (one of the most famous tracks by American virtuoso and brilliant guitarist Joe Satriani), means to communicate the unstable balance, dizzy leaps and acrobatics in the void of a dynamic painting that looks like fluctuating in the dimensions of space, each time generating new plots and surprising trajectories.

As Asdrubali himself once wrote: “Surfing is an action generated by absence. But this surfing is not smooth, it is contrastingly bumping, it is running away, going away, to then return and bang into its own beginning, but every time it returns and bumps into itself it deforms and opens the structure, transforming the ‘figure’ of the image, which is never the same. The interaction is the figure of this struggle, of this contrast between surfing and the alien”.

Asdrubali’s figure is an extreme one, an artist whom critic Filiberto Menna listed in the Astrazione povera group, Flavio Caroli in that of Magico primario, and that Giovanni Carandente invited at the Venice Biennale in 1988.

At Palazzo Collicola, the exhibition unfolds through the rooms at the ground floor, which once housed the permanent collection of the Modern Art Gallery (since 2019 rearranged at the museum’s second floor), where two other works by Asdrubali are kept, including a spectacular Tromboloide from 1992. An interactive project, ZUMBER, by the ORAMIDE research group, has been realized on this work and will soon be available on the museum’s website  http://www.palazzocollicola.it

The exhibition will be open to the public from 27 June to 13 September 2020, it has been realized with the collaboration of Galleria Giraldi, Galleria A Arte Invernizzi, Galleria Matteo Lampertico, Galleria Consorti. During the exhibition, a catalogue with texts by Marco Tonelli, Bruno Corà and an interview with the artist Davide Silvioli will be published. 

Opening times:
June-July: Fri-Sun 10.30-13.00 / 15.30-19,00
