largest retrospective ever devoted to Marc Chagall in
works, mostly paintings, will guide visitors from his first painting ‘Le petit salon’ (1908), to the last
of his monumental works of the ‘80s.
first time ever the exhibition will present works from the collections of his
heirs, and some unpublished pieces, alongside masterpieces from major museums
around the world.
of the exhibition is centred on a new interpretation of Chagall’s language,
whose poetic vein developed over the course of the twentieth century through
the melding of major Western European traditions: from Jewish and Russian
culture up to his encounter with French avant-garde painting.
exhibition will be divided into sections: the first works created in Russia,
his first stay in France and his subsequent return to Russia until 1921, the
second period of his exile, first in France and then, in the '40s, in
America. With his return to
and the final decision to settle on the French Riviera, Chagall regained his
more tranquil poetic language, brightened by the colours and atmosphere of
the southern coast.

After more than sixty years Van Gogh returns to
Milan with a major
exhibition that traces the Dutch painter’s works.
The recurring themes will focus on the phases of
rural life, enunciated by ploughing in the fields, sowing and harvesting,
symbols of human effort to dominate the cycles of nature: a complex and
poetic dialogue by the artist between the human being and the nature that

and will be supplemented by loans from many international museums.
Curated by Kathleen Adler, a renowned scholar of
nineteenth-century art who served for eleven years as Director of Education
at the National Gallery in London, the exhibition presents some of the most
famous masterpieces of the great artist shown for the first time in Milan,
1887, ‘Landscape with wheat sheaves and
the crescent moon’, 1889, ‘Portrait
of Joseph Roulin’, 1889 and ‘Still
life with a plate of onions’, 1889.
The exhibition explores the evolution of painting
through the master's early work, his encounter with Impressionism and the
Neo-Impressionism of Seurat and Signac; it ends with the period in
Arles and his time in the
where he died.
The exhibition layout will be curated by the
Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the much-acclaimed international architect
with a very poetic vein whose involvement represents the crowning of this
ambitious project for the exhibition that totally "immerses" the visitor
into each work of art.
The Return to Milan
From 09/18/2014 to 01/18/2015:
exhibition aims to span all of Segantini’s works, starting from those in his
to the forefront of international exhibitions.
ritorno a Milano acknowledges the participation
of the two most important institutions that conserve his work, the Galleria
Civica d'Arte Moderna in
Milan and the
Giovanni Segantini - one of the greatest European artists from the late
nineteenth and the beginning of the new century -
Milan was his spiritual home, a landmark
throughout his brief life.
exhibition starts from the celebration of his love for everything Milanese:
specifically this, his spiritual and cultural citizenship, cannot but present
him as the living metaphor of an existential situation swaying between the heritage
and traditions of the
Great Plains and the
most secret and least known ones of the Alpine macro-region.
of over one hundred works, the Segantini retrospective is presented as an
exceptional prelude to Expo Milan 2015.

Paintings and sculptures investigate the interlacing
of the creative story of two twentieth-century protagonists whilst separately
following the two individual paths.
In January 1957 Yves Klein held his first solo show
at the Galleria Apollinaire in
and Lucio Fontana was one of the first buyers of a monochrome by the French
artist. During the successive five years (up until Klein’s death) the two
crossed paths several times.
Amongst the most significant episodes of their
relationships we can recall contacts Klein’s contacts with and Fontana’s
friends and gallery owners, a collaborative project between the two for the
XII Triennale in Milan in 1960 and several trips to Italy by Klein and
Fontana’s stays in Paris.
