On Saturday 6 May 2023, Villa Pisani Bonetti opens a solo show by Rodolfo Aricò (Milano 1930 - 2002), curated by Francesca Pola, in which works chosen to dialogue with this youthful architectural masterpiece by Andrea Palladio are presented: an extraordinary place that, in its purposeful relationship with its historical identity open to confrontation with contemporary creativity, introduces unprecedented forms of experience for the visitor.
A bilingual volume with an in-depth exploration of Aricò’s work has been edited by Francesca Pola and published for the exhibition. The monograph offers an overview of the artist’s work from an international perspective, with illustrations of artworks, historical photographs and documents. It also includes a selection of artist’s writings and critical texts that have accompanied his career, a special essay by Angela Faravelli on the relationship between work and architecture, and an updated bio-bibliographic section.
The exhibition is organized by Associazione Culturale Villa Pisani Contemporary Art in collaboration with Archivio Rodolfo Aricò and A arte Invernizzi, Milano.
