A arte Invernizzi presents “The Critical Eye“, another appointment of the thematic exhibition series that included “The Musical Eye” (2014), “The Cinematic Eye” (2016) and “The Philosophical Eye” (2018).
In this edition, the eye is intended both as that of the critic – who aims to show the works to others, pointing to their presence and assisting in their interpretation – and the eye of the person who observes a work of art needs to be a critical eye. The exhibition aims to help the eye acquire a sense of wonder, inviting the visitors to observe the works in all their uniqueness.
The exhibition features italian and international artists from the 1950s onwards: in the first room on the upper floor, there are works by Carlo Ciussi, Gianni Colombo, Philippe Decrauzat, Bruno Querci, Nelio Sonego and Elisabeth Vary. The next room creates a conversation between the works of Gianni Asdrubali, Arcangelo Sassolino and David Tremlett. In the adjacent rooms, there are some more intimate works by Rodolfo Aricò, Francesco Candeloro, Lesley Foxcroft, Salvatore Scarpitta, Günter Umberg and Grazia Varisco. The work by Riccardo De Marchi, on the wall by the entrance, acts as a fulcrum between the two main sections of the visit. The lower floor hosts the works of Pino Pinelli, Dadamaino, François Morellet, Mario Nigro, Niele Toroni, Michel Verjux and Alan Charlton.
