catalogue previewsenzamargine. Passages in Italian Art at the turn of the millenniumArtissima 2021

Marsilio Editori 2021
curated by Stefano Chiodi and Bartolomeo Pietromarchi

Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, MAXXI Arte Director, together with the art critic Stefano Chiodi and the art historian and curator Sharon Hecker discuss the exhibition, starting from the catalogue published by Marsilio.

Through the essays of an international group of critics and scholars, the volume offers an exhaustive introduction to the work of the ten artists (Accardi, Fabro, Ghirri, Gianikian e Ricci Lucchi, Icaro, Kounellis, Maiolino, Parmiggiani, Schifano), offering new interpretations and points for reflection on which to base a rewriting of the canon of the art of the last few decades.

Against the background of the need for a new account of the Italian experience, one that also looks beyond the nation’s borders and is able to draw attention to the coexistence within it of individual traditions, lines, and vectors that cannot be traced back to a common root or “identity.”
