Once Upon a time in 2020: an exhibition by Fabrizio Spucches at the new Scalo Lambrate, Milan

April 29, 2021

The exhibition, open to the public on Wednesday 28 April in the brand new exhibition spaces of the Scalo Lambrate in via Saccardo, aims to take a gamble and find a meeting point between these two areas: art can be a tool for representing reality, subtracting this primacy from banality of mass communication?

Over 100 photographs for an exhibition divided into four different sections, which address Covid by offering various new and surprising points of view on the human condition in this period. Glimpses of contemporary history under the eyes of all, but which we often do not want to see: from the most hidden aspects of the “working class” to the gap (which has grown enormously) between rich and poor. Is it once again the economy that governs our way of living and enduring this era? There will then be two iconic sections, which wink at the history of art: the first traces a series of surreal portraits, with a Renaissance flavor, which have a sacred and profane attitude towards the virus at the same time; the second is instead a sequence dedicated to the nude, to the taboo that resists despite the fact that every paradigm is changing.

The exhibition, promoted by the Municipality of Milan and organized by the Formidable Association, is curated by Nicolas Ballario and under the artistic direction of Umberto Cofini. This exhibition is the first of a long series that will be hosted in the new and evocative spaces of Scalo Lambrate, an urban regeneration project born from the collaboration between the Formidabile Association, Municipio 3, The Sanctuary Eco Retreat and FS Sistemi Urbani.
