This is evidenced by its inclusion in the collections of prominent institutions worldwide, including the Centre Pompidou and the Fondation Cartier in Paris, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, MAXXI in Rome and the MAMCO in Geneva
    • Includes insights into the works called Delocazioni
    • Includes high-quality images of works of art
    Full Description

    Catalogue of the exhibition Parmiggiani dedicated to the artist Claudio Parmiggiani by Tornabuoni Art Paris gallery from October 2023 to January 2024. The exhibition will be the first entirely devoted to the artist’s Delocazioni series.

    Offering previously unpublished texts by Bruno Corà, Andrea Cortellessa and Philippe Dagen, the catalogue traces the stages of the artistic research of Parmiggiani, who was born in Luzzara in 1943 and is recognised as one of the leading artists on the Italian and international art scene. The exhibition offers a selection of works conceived in situ by the artist. Made with fire, dust and smoke, his first Delocazioni were born in the 1970s in Modena as a reflection on absence, shadow and trace.

    The catalogue is enriched with texts from his work-books published since 1970, quotations from the artist, photos from the exhibition and archival images in collaboration with Parmiggiani’s studio.
