Until 13 October at the Galleria d’Arte Moderna the evolution of the female image, protagonist of creativity from the late 19th century to the contemporary.
A hundred works including paintings, sculptures, graphics, photography and videos from the contemporary art collections are showing here how the female universe has always been a loved subject of an artist’s attention, immortalized both in its strong essence and in its dynamic capacity for transformation, celebrated both in the role of an angel or a demon and as a subject who wonders about his identity, till the new image born out of the revolution of the ‘60s. Thus with artworks such as “Le vergini savie e le vergini stolte” by Giulio Aristide Sartorio and the iconic face of Elisa di Giacomo Balla, the exhibition curated by Arianna Angelelli, Federica Pirani, Gloria Raimondi and Daniela Vasta, promoted by Roma Capitale, Assessorato alla Crescita culturale – Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali offers visitors an unprecedented representation of woman through history, going from the object of admiration to the mysterious subject, a path enriched by masterpieces shown for the first time ever. Meetings, readings, performances, presentations, screenings, music and theme evenings will complete the programme of events of the exhibition until 13 October, together with the #donneGAM contest, through which the Galleria d’Arte Moderna will invite you to post photographs of female protagonists of your family history. A heartfelt tribute to which will be dedicated an area especially set up in the exhibition: an original way to gather testimonies on the many and great female stories of the past and the present.
