Enzo Cucchi – MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts, Italy
17 May — 24 Sep 2023
Enzo CucchiIl poeta e il mago
curated by Luigia Lonardelli, Bartolomeo Pietromarchi
The unedited portrait of a multifaceted and visionary artist who has always eluded definitions.
Enzo Cucchi is one of the most prolific and innovative artists on the contemporary scene, a free thinker and countercurrent. His research is rooted in the written word and flourishes in a multitude of different signs, symbols and expressive languages. Like an alchemist, he bewitches and moulds matter; like a storyteller, he evokes stories, myths and places far away in time.
The more than two hundred works in the exhibition mark out an itinerary that is indivisible and full of surprises, a story told in scattered pages that refuses any chronological linearity and returns creativity in perpetual movement. Scattered everywhere, like traces in the gallery, monumental works, drawings, small bronzes, ceramics, graphics and artist’s books continually intercept the visitor’s gaze.
