Depero New Depero – MART, Italy
21 Oct — 13 Feb 2022
Fortunato Depero, total art pioneer and founder of the Rovereto Futurist museum named after him, plays centre stage in a great exhibition exploring the modernity of his experiments and the influence on art, fashion, design and comic strips from the 1970s to today. With over 500 works on display ranging from paintings, designs, furniture, objects, posters, photographs, books and magazines and ten videos and films made over the last 20 years together with comic strips, design objects and the famous advertising sketches Campari.
The scenographic layout features five sections: “Reconsructions”, with numerous remakes of Depero’s unusual theatre creations; “Depero Effect”, in which the great Italian design names overtly inspired by this Trentino artist emerge; “America”, where Depero’s art and personal life are told via the most recent audiovisual productions; “Museum”, made with the Archivio del ‘900‘s documents and publications; “Conservation/Education”, which focuses on the projects promoted by Mart over the years in the restoration and cultural mediation context.
