On the occasion of MAECI on Wednesday 24 October, the museum and the library will be closing early at 5pm (last entries 4pm)
curated by Germano Celant
After working for two years on the archive of Paolo Pellegrin, , the exhibition presents the themes that animate the work of the photographer who, over decades has entwined the vision of a reporter with the visual intensity of an artist..
Winner of ten editions of the World Press Photo Award and a member of Magnum agency since 2005, Pellegrin’s work is analysed in two large sections: the first one is dedicated to the human being, the second is focused on his vision of nature, showing intense and suffering scenes.
Whilst planning and organising the exhibition, MAXXI has asked the photographer to carry out a work dedicated to L’Aquila and its rebuilding.
