Carrà at the Ferrero Foundation

Following on from the exhibition of the landscapes of Giorgio Morandi, the next retrospective promoted by the Ferrero foundation in Alba will be dedicated to the Piedmontese artist, Carlo Carrà.

The exhibition, to be held in the autumn of 2012, will be hosted in the main building of the Ferrero Foundation in Alba and will focus on one of the greatest Piedmontese artists of the twentieth century. It offers a modern reading of Carlo Carrà’s artistic career twenty years after the last monographic exhibition dedicated to him at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome.  You will find examples of his art from his first divisionist experiments to his Futuristic masterpieces, from his “Antigracious” phase to his “Metaphysics” and “Mythical Realism”. The exhibition includes his landscapes from the 1920s, his monumental figure compositions from the 1930s and a selection of still lifes right up to the last years of his life. The aim of the exhibition, according to its curator, is to document Carrà’s career through each phase of his most significant works, drawing on collections and museums both in and out of Italy.
