Kandinsky -> Cage

11 Nov 2017 - 18 Mar 2017

Music and Spiritual in Art

From the spiritual abstraction of Wassily Kandinsky to the enlightened silence of John Cage

Works by Max Klinger, Paul Klee, Arnold Schönberg, Constantin Čiurlionis, Marianne Werefkin, Oskar Fischinger, Fausto Melotti, Nicolas De Staël, Giulio Turcato, Robert Rauschenberg

An itinerary between art and music that extends from Kandinsky to Cage exploring the ideas of interiority and spirituality as open themes that encompass many influences.

From the end of the nineteenth century to our own day, a central thread unwinds which links music to developments in modern and contemporary art. There is no artist who has not had to face the immateriality of the sister-art, with its sovereign independence from the world of the visible and the goals of replication.

The exhibition is promoted by Fondazione Palazzo Magnani and Skira Editore, with the participation of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism, the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, the Emilia Romagna region, the province of Reggio Emilia, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio Pietro Manodori, and the Reggio Emilia Chamber of Commerce.

The project, curated by Martina Mazzotta, is honoured to have an important academic committee, chaired by Paolo Repetto and including Enzo Bianchi, Gillo Dorfles, Michele Porzio, Peter Vergo.
