Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, “Rear Window. Glimpses of Private Collections” (“La Finestra sul Cortile. Scorci di Collezioni Private”) explores the idea of private collectors by establishing a dialogue between artworks from different Italian contemporary art collections – the Panza di Biumo Collection and the Berlingieri Collection – and the permanent oeuvres of the Galleria d’Arte Moderna.
By weaving unusual connections between modern, contemporary and nineteenth century artists, this exhibition collects different events into a bigger narrative that defines the visitor’s “field of vision” recalling the atmospheres of Hitchcock’s famous film “Rear Window”, from which the exhibit borrows its title.
