Dec 6 2017 – Apr 8 2018 all-day

LIGHTQUAKE 2017
Black Light Art and Light Art Exhibition

Rocca Albornoziana – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto
6 December 2017 – 25 February 2018
Dukes’ Palace – Gubbio
8 December 2017 – 25 February 2018

When Christmas will turn its lights on, those in Spoleto and Gubbio won’t be just Christmas lightings, but true works of art by the artists involved in the artistic project Lightquake 2017, who will give life to the first Light Art and Black Light Art exhibitions in Umbria, featuring artists who have always been manipulating light.

The artistic project Lightquake was started to support the recovery of the cultural heritage damaged by the 2016 earthquake in Central Italy. A double exhibition will involve the cities of Spoleto and Gubbio, starting in December 2017. From 6 December to 25 February 2018, the exhibition Black Light Art will take place in the inner  and outer spaces at the Rocca Albornoziana – Museo Nazionale del Ducato di Spoleto. From 7 December to 25 February 2018, the Dukes’ Palace in Gubbio will be enlivened by Light Art, through works by Federica Marangoni, Saverio Mercati and Stefano Frascarelli.

During the exhibition, a luminous installation by Umbrian artist Carlo Dell’Amico will be inaugurated at the Tempietto del Clitunno, thus symbolically joining two museums and a monument through light.

The Spoleto core of Black Light Art is composed of: Leonilde Carabba, Claudio Sek De Luca, Ria Lussi, Mario Agrifoglio, Alessio Ancillai, Giulio De Mitri, Nicola Evangelisti, Maria Cristina Fioretti, Yari Miele, ancora un’opera di Federica Marangoni, Sebastiano Romano, Ugo Piccioni, Nino Alfieri. This exhibition has already been organised in Milan and Como, and aims at exploring the artistic values of black light, proposing works by more than 10 artists who experiment with light. Mario Agrifoglio, an artist who made Black Light the core of his artistic experimentation, is the outstanding figure here. Black Light as expressive tool, that can involve the spectator in a sensorial experience where reality, far from appearing in its usual shape, is dressed with unusual, surprising colours and shapes. Light will colour the dark, to bring back the light of life across the earthquaked lands.

The artistic curatorship is held by Gisella Gellini and Claudia Bottini, the exhibition is supported by Polo museale dell’Umbria, Regione Umbria, Cities of Gubbio and Spoleto, in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano and Fondazione Mario Agrifoglio, with the contribution of Associazione Rocca Albornoziana. Società Sistema Museo is entrusted with its production.

<!--:it-->IL GIOCO DELLA PITTURA. La collezione di carte dipinte di Paola Masino<!--:--><!--:en-->THE PAINTING GAME. Paola Masino's collection of painted playing cards<!--:--> @ MAG Palazzo Bufalini | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

MetaMorfosi Art Gallery Cultural Association presents:
THE PAINTING GAME
PAOLA MASINO’S COLLECTION OF PAINTED PLAYING CARDS
7 December/2 April – MAG Palazzo Bufalini, Piazza Duomo – by MetaMorfosi Art Gallery Cultural Association
Opening:  Thursday December 7 h. 12.00

The exhibition will bring to Palazzo Bufalini an extraordinary collection of painted cards coming from the Museum of Rome in Palazzo Braschi.

Conceived by Paola Masino, an unconventional writer and intellectual, the collection was created with the intention of considering playing cards as a work of art, reinvented according to the creativity of her many artistic friends. Carried out with patience and tenacity for four decades, Paola Masino’s project produces a very original bouquet of French, Neapolitan and tarot playing cards, created by the best interpreters of twentieth century art.

From Carla Accardi to Alberto Burri and Consagra; from Carlo Carrà to Campigli and Capogrossi, passing through Cagli, Carlo Levi, Renato Guttuso, Prampolini, Fausto Pirandello, Giosetta Fioroni, Antonietta Raphael Mafai, Pietro Dorazio, Mario Sironi – just to name a few – many important artists took up her invitation, creating these small works of art.

The exhibition The Painting Game. Paola Masino’s collection of painted playing cards, curated by Marinella Mascia Galateria and Patrizia Masini, is organized by MetaMorfosi, thanks to the precious collaboration with Roma Capitale, Department of Cultural Growth – Capitoline Superintendence for Cultural Heritage with the Archive of the twentieth century of Sapienza University of Rome and under the patronage of the Municipality of Spoleto and the City of Rome.

Collicola onthewall presents SCHERMI URBANI (Urban Screens) @ Vie del centro storico
Dec 16 2017 – Apr 2 2018 all-day

from Saturday 16 December
Opening h 14.30 – Downtown Spoleto

Collicola onthewall presents

SCHERMI URBANI
Curated by Gianluca Marziani

SCHERMI URBANI is a Christmas event of public art, strongly wished for by the City administration which entrusted director of Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts Gianluca Marziani with its artistic curatorship.

The event involves some twenty sites in downtown Spoleto, including two former newsstands (Piazza Collicola, Piazza della Libertà), Palazzetto Ancaiani’s six displays (Piazza della Libertà) and some further fifteen dispays scattered across the city centre (Corso Mazzini, Via del Mercato, Via Salara Vecchia, via Minervio): the locations will be coated with great images of contemporary art, created by five artists who already collaborate with Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts.

“After last summer’s performance by street artist Ob Queberry in Piazza del Mercato – said Head of Culture and Tourism Camilla Laureti and Head of Town Planning Antonio Cappelletti – for the Christmas period we wanted the displays of closed shops to become the base for artistic interventions. It is a way to have the city centre live again and to try and envision a different future for this part of the city. We thank the shop owners who accepted to be featured, director Gianluca Marziani and the artists who joined in.”

Fridays-Saturdays-Sundays 10.30-13.00 / 15.30-19.00
Opening: 28 April at 17.00

The Spoleto House of Architecture presents the exhibition LE SUPERUTOPIE toyscapes at Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts, featuring works by Anna Riciputo and the video performance (H)EART((H)QUAKE by Coletivo Barragem (Nivaldo Godoy and Panais Bouki).

Le Superutopie by Anna la Touche Riciputo are a synthesis of a way of looking at the built space through the Toyscapes, toy-landscapes that take shape of landscapes-borders of the utopian subconscious composed by fragments of architecture, art and costumes.

Astounding pop scenarios that are the result of a precise, formal analysis: the architect gathers the richness of the urban landscape, selects the city’s icons, pivots of history, and recomposes them in a contemporary stratigraphy.
The stratigrapy thus assumes the double meaning of a replacement of the work in a new landscape, and of direct, momentous fusion where parts of contemporary architecture blend with fragments of historical architectures.
The video performance (H)EART((H)quake by Coletivo Barragem (Nivaldo Godoy and Panais Bouki), picks up Anna Riciputo’s pop heritage and mixes the authors’ point of view on Spoleto in video sequences, recomposing the historical signs of the city mixed with Festival-Of-Two-World’s icons, all-the -while letting the post-earthquake temporary facilities surface.

The exhibition will be introduced with the catalogue published by ADD-art Edizioni, featuring collaborations bycoordinator of Casa dell’Architettura, architect Fabio Fabiani, director of Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive Spoleto, Gianluca Marziani, Addart curator Alessia Vergari, journalist Andrea Tomasini and the very illustrious architect Adolfo Natalini.
