Farnesina Collection’s Masterpieces.


The exhibition, Martina Corgnati and Giovanni Iovine curators, that opens at the Zagreb Contemporary Art Museum from October 6th to November 14th, 2015 and at the Bosnia Herzegovina National Gallery of Sarajevo from November 19th to December 11th, 2015, has at its core a State "collection" with a peculiar location, i.e. the Farnesina Palace, Italian Foreign Office Headquarters.

The collection, still in progress and claiming no comprehensive outlook on art as museums do, centres around some noteworthy Italian artists and art movements from the Fifties to today,. However, in order to give the public a more exhaustive outline of the Italian artscape from the Second World War onward and of some key moments and artists of the time, the curators will display, alongside it, the works of several other artists, some given by the artists themselves on an extended loan (among them an especially interesting sample of Agostino Ferrari's research), others borrowed from various sources (Emilio Vedova, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Ettore Spalletti, Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana, Vincenzo Agnetti, Mimmo Paladino).

The Zagreb exhibition will also include a large number of works from the local Contemporary Art Museum collections.
