Carlos Amorales: The Accursed Hour

Fondazione Adolfo Pini

02 Apr 201908 Jul 2019

Fondazione Adolfo Pini, Milan, hosts the exhibition “The Accursed Hour” conceived by artist Carlos Amorales for the foundation. The exhibition is based on his life-size installation “Black Clouds” composed of 15.000 black butterflies invading the spaces and on various pieces from his project “Life in the folds”, centred on human violence against other human beings. Besides them, the exhibition includes silhouettes and other works by the artist, who focuses his investigation on language and communication. Amorales’ works either reflect on images and their transformation or analyse systems of communication, investigating their evolution and the ways particular narratives are spread at the expense of others.

Special opening  during Milan Art week
from Monday April 1st to Friday April 5th extended hours: 10am-1pm and 3pm-7pm;
Saturday, April 6th and Sunday April 7th: 11am-1pm and 3pm-6pm
