Thursday 12 June, 18.00
MAXXI B.A.S.E., Graziella Lonardi Buontempo Hall – free admittance subject to availability
Cosmos, Music, Psyche and Development
For subjects for four works
The event, promoted by Incontro Internazionali d’Arte in collaboration with the museum’s Education Department, is a seminar based on the works of Andrea Boldrini. The artist, who for years has been working on the theme of energy, understood as an idea capable of bringing together diverse fields such as astronomy, music, psychiatry and economics, explores the frontiers of sensory experience through psychological and astronomical research.
His works become useful a tool in the deconstruction and comprehension of the present.
Thanks to extremely powerful telescopes that he designed, the artist inhabits space, its nebulae, its darkness and its colours, capturing the planet Earth in its transparent landscapes and crowds of human beings.
From the cosmic energies of nature, largely “obscure”, yet always recognisable, we pass, through art, to the creative energies of the human being.
