77, a story about forty years ago
The exhibition is a portrait of humanity, facts and events that occurred in 1977, the story of a generation and a country told through the photographic images of one of the greatest Italian photographers and the works of one of the most interesting from the contemporary scene.
The artistic and cultural experimentation that since '77 has become, for the first time in history, practice and language of mass, has inspired the choice of the works of these two significant personalities, the photographer Tano D'Amico and the artist Pablo Echaurren, for their personal, political and artistic history, which has crossed, marking them, the creative expressions that have developed within the movement of '77.
The exhibition is not governed by a temporal ordering principle or by a chronological sequence of the events in the news, but is structured around thematic thematic areas that better restore the context in which the specificity of the language of the movement of '77 matures and forms. The areas identified concern: faces, parties, women, the relationship between man and woman, opposition, death and blood, letters, alogical communication, visual poetry, urban creativity ...
The exhibition of about 200 works is enriched by the release of the book Il piombo e le rose - Utopia and creativity of the movement edited by Postcart, by the screening of films and by a computer station for consulting newspapers and newspapers of the time.
During the exhibition there will be three thematic seminars with journalists, historians, art historians and protagonists of the "movement". The film Indiani Metropolitani, written by Claudia Salaris and directed by Antonella Sgambati, will also be screened.
