The protagonist of the show is the pink color, in all its forms. Every visitor can make a journey within the set-up and discover the multiple implementations of this color in modern and contemporary art, in different periods and styles.
The exhibited works allow to explore the use of the pink color in the landscape, figures and nudes, from realistic to expressionist reproductions, from impressionist to purely abstract visions.
Artists from different movements and styles are put in dialogue, ranging from Castelli to Le Corbusier and Legér, from members of the CoBRA group to those of the Rot Blau, from the Nouveau Réalistes Tinguely, Spoerri and Niki De Saint Phalle, to the King of Pop Art Andy Warhol, up to Street Art with the works of Banksy.
“Visiting this exhibition is like reading a short contemporary art history manual by wearing a pair of pink glasses. It is a deep immersion in this color, to explore its infinite artistic variations. A color meaningful and contradictory, which had and still plays an important role in the history of art. And perhaps not only, considering that recent scientific discoveries indicate it as the pigment of the first forms of life on earth: it seems, in fact, that the first bacteria on our planet were pink “.
