From the metaphysical visions of Luigi Ghirri to the crowded beaches of Massimo Vitali, from the saturated colours of the landscapes of Franco Fontana to the anguished story of an abandoned land by Letizia Battaglia, from the elegant and essential architectural visions of Gabriele Basilico to the mountains of Walter Niedermayr, all this and more can be found in EXTRAORDINARY VISIONS. ITALY, a portrait of Italy seen through the eyes of many of the masters of Italian photography, the
MAXXI exhibition curated by Margherita Guccione and Simona Antonacci, running from 31 October 2018, at the Italian Institute of Culture in New Delhi on the occasion of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Italy and India and the 24th edition of the Technology Summit at which Italy is a guest nation this year.
The works on show, all drawn from the MAXXI Permanent Collection, recount the cultural transformations in which Italy has been a protagonist in the most recent decades. Among the photographers involved, many are representatives of the Italian landscape school and are joined by members of later generations and others working in different genres ranging from social reportage to artistic and conceptual experimentations.
The exhibition opens not with a photographic image, but with a masterpiece by the artist Alighiero Boetti, Mappa, a tapestry made in 1971 that represents a map of the world in which every country is distinguished by the colours of its national flag. A work that presents a geopolitical reflection on the transformations of the contemporary world and the strength of art, capable of creating dialogues between places and communities distant from one another.
The exhibition offers a journey via three thematic paths: CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPES, STATE, CITY, WORK and ART AND CULTURE, each conceived as an independent visual discourse, a “framing” of converging or diverging points of view.
