This edition of Biennale Donna is dedicated to the work of Ketty La Rocca (La Spezia, 1938 – Florence, 1976) one of the major protagonists of the Italian neo-avant-garde. This retrospective of Ketty La Rocca follows the first anthological exhibition in Italy, realized more than fifteen years ago.
The exhibition, in collaboration with Archivio Ketty La Rocca by Michelangelo Vasta, presents for the first time to the public some materials, documents and objects belonging to the artist, related to her most famous production.
The exhibition, running April 15 – June 3, moves both on a thematic and a chronological track. A project that has never been realized will also be presented: “In principio erat verbum”, a performance game that reiterates La Rocca’s interest in gestural communication.
