Mucha revisits his historic installation Mutterseelenallein (Loneliness), 1989, which originally filled the Galleria Lia Rumma in Naples with showcases displaying black-and-white photographs of chairs that had been used by gallery guards or visitors during a 1979 exhibition of his work in Düsseldorf. The German artist’s current presentation includes a miniature re-creation of Mutterseelenallein accompanied by films and photographs taken during the nine-day period in which the artwork was on view at Frankfurt’s Museum für Moderne Kunst.
Reinhard Mucha #MUCHA®MILANO - Schneller werden ohne Zeitverlust
On the occasion of the centenary of Mario Nigro’s birth, this exhibition traces the evolution of the Italian painter’s unique abstract style, which bares the influence of his academic background in science and his professional training as a pharmacist. Revealing tensions between time, space, and form, the exhibition begins with paintings from the 1940s and culminates with a selection of works originally shown in Nigro’s solo exhibition at the 1968 Venice Biennale.
