The explorations of Escher’s space on show at the Pan di Napoli
November 1, 2018 @ 09:30 - April 22, 2019 @ 19:30 UTC+1
From 1 November 2018 to 22 April 2019 Escher exhibition in Naples at the Pan, Palazzo Delle Arti Di Napoli.The museum hosts one of the largest retrospectives of the Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher.
The exploration of space through games of inverted perspectives, geometric illusions and the different constructions of the infinite are at the center of Escher’s works present at the Neapolitan exhibition: a journey of about 200 works that starts from Escher to the present day, through a section dedicated to the influence of his work and his creations on the following generations, from records to comics, from advertising to cinema.
Relativity (1953), Bond of union (1956), Metamorphosis II (1939) and Day and night (1938) are just some of the iconic works that made Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) famous and that, in this exhibition, they are flanked by an original selection of works produced by the artist during his trip – which took place in the spring of 1923 – along the Amalfi Coast up to Ravello. A journey along the peninsula that marks him deeply also on a personal level: in Campania he will know the young Swiss Jetta Umiker who, the following year, will become his wife.
The exhibition, promoted by the Department of Culture and Tourism of the Municipality of Naples, is produced and organized by the Arthemisia Group in collaboration with the M.C. Escher Foundation and curated by Mark Veldhuysen and Federico Giudiceandrea. The initiative is supported by Generali Italia through Valore Cultura, the program to promote art and culture throughout the Italian territory and bring a broad and transversal audience – families, young people, customers and employees – to the art world through the facilitated entry to exhibitions, theatrical performances, events and artistic-cultural dissemination activities with the aim of creating shared value.
The exhibition sees as a special partner Ricola and Q8, Trenitalia technical sponsor, media partner Il Mattino and radio partner RDS. The event is recommended by Sky Arte HD.
