About the Exhibition
Curated by Giovanna Gienx and Danka Giacon, the exhibition “Intelligence has no gender. Adriana Bisi Fabbri and the network of arts (1900 – 1918)” focuses on the artistic work and biographical experiences of Adriana Bisi Fabbri (1881 – 1918) and her husband, journalist and writer Giannetto Bisi (1881 – 1919). The work of the exuberant and charismatic painter Adriana Bisi Fabbri is analysed through a selection of paintings and illustrations, as well as caricatures and documents displayed at the fourth floor of Milan’s Museo del Novecento.
The author and her research
Divided into three different sections which include Adriana Bisi Fabbri’s biography, her passionate relationship with her husband Giannetto Bisi and the thick network of relations the couple built together with the leading characters of two decades of Italian art, the exhibition aims to re-readthe artistic activity and the biography of the artist. More than 200 works including paintings, graphics, sketches and documents provide a glimpse on the early 20th century intellectual life. Art, journalism and the Avant-garde take visitors on a journey through Ferrara, Bergamo and Milan, meeting crucial figures such as Umberto Boccioni, Cesare Laurenti, Ugo Valeri, Eugenio Bajoni and encountering the Avant-garde groups in Turin, Florence, Venice and Rome.
