History I Never Lived Through (Indirect Witness) at Castello di Rivoli
Curated by Marcella Beccaria
September 16, 2012 – November 18, 2012
Opening: Saturday, September 1, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.
The autumn exhibitions programme at the Castello di Rivoli opens on September 15 with History I Never Lived Through (Indirect Witness), a major new exhibition entirely dedicated to young Italian art. The show, hosted in the large rooms on the third floor of the former Savoyard residence, has been planned and curated by Marcella Beccaria. This new and important exhibition has been made possible by the generous contribution of the Supporting friends of the Castello di Rivoli and it is realized with the Media Partnership by La Stampa and RAI – La Storia siamo noi.
Francesco Arena, Rossella Biscotti, Patrizio Di Massimo, Flavio Favelli, Eva Frapiccini, goldiechiari and Seb Patane are the protagonists of History I Never Lived Through (Indirect Witness); they have been chosen as being representative of a new generation of Italian artists who use the history of Italy as the subject of their work. Interpreted in a wide range of forms and choice of media, the works on display focus on some of the periods that have tragically marked the history of Italy over the 20th century.
