About the exhibition
Following an important project of re-discovery of the Italian art of the second half of the 20th century, Museo del Novecento pays tribute to the production of Remo Bianco with the exhibition ‘Remo Bianco. Le Impronte della memoria’ (the Italian for ‘Remo Bianco. The Imprints of Memory’). Featuring over 70 works by the artist, the exhibition retraces the research and the evolution of Bianco’s life and work. The masterpieces are the result of the working relationship with Filippo de Pisis and his friend artists, which has stimulated Remo Bianco’s desire to experiment new artistic solutions, which include re-using simple and humble daily life objects that are often forgotten.
The masterpieces on display
The works on display start from the ‘Impronte‘, pieces of gypsum, pressed carton or gum with the trails of various objects created between the late 1940s and the early 1950s and continue with the 3D three-dimensional works in plastic, glass, wood or coloured plexiglass. A series of Collages inspired by a trip to the United States and the Tableaux Dorés featuring monochrome backgrounds and gold leaves complete the exhibition.
