About the exhibition
The first monographic exhibition dedicated to the cinematographic works by Marinella Pirelli takes the stage of the Museo del Novecento with the exhibition ‘Luce Movimento. Il cinema Sperimentale di Marinella Pirelli’. The display is spread over 10 different halls and aims to reconstruct the artistic and personal heritage of the artist in a thematic and chronological order. The clusters of the exhibition – expressed through images and light in motion – are focused on the themes of light, nature, colour, as well as animated films. All the featured works, some of which have first been displayed at a project of light works held at Villa Panza – in Varese- in 2004, have been created between 1961 and 1974, when the artist created her first double self-portrait before starting a 20-year-hiatus with art.
Into more details
Besides being an important example of the futuristic results in the field of experimental movie-making, considered an impressive innovation during the post WW2 period, the exhibition introduces the personality of Marinella Pirelli, one of the most influential and less known female artists on those times, to the wider public.
Throughout the exhibition, the artist also reflects on the theme of ‘the role of women’ into society, which is analysed with thoughts on the Marinella’s identity as a woman, as a mother and as an artist.
