The artist Mimmo Dabbrescia exhibits art perspectives at the Milanese gallery!
Starting from Thursday 24 March 2011, the spaces of the Galleria Prospettive darte will host the photographic exhibition “Portrait of an artist” by Mimmo Dabbrescia: some of the most important artists of the twentieth century seen through 60 black and white shots by Mimmo Dabbrescia.
After the great success achieved during the BAF, this important exhibition lands in Milan on the occasion of the Photofestival. The over 60 shots, in black and white, retrace the history of art of the past 40 years by presenting some of the most important artists of the twentieth century seen through the lens of the great photographer. Shots, taken from the 60s up to the 90s, that speak of moments of daily life and which tell the places where the masters worked.
Visitors will thus be able to meet from Salvador Dalì in his Port Lligat to Francis Bacon, from Giorgio De Chirico to Graham Sutherland, from Zoran Music to Agostino Bonalumi and then again Renato Guttuso, Piero Guccione, Emilio Scanavino, Hans Hartung and many others.
Mimmo Dabbrescia, born photojournalist for newspapers such as Corriere della Sera, La Domenica del Corriere, Amica, has been reporting since the early 1960s that feature, in addition to the great artists, personalities from the world of music, entertainment, but also the news, the customs and the places, near and far, that have a story to tell.
Thanks to perspective archive, Prospettive d’arte, which has collected all the photographic material of this artist over time, “Artist Portrait” thus comes to life, an exhibition that offers an unprecedented cross-section of the life of the great masters of the twentieth century. A new exhibition project that was founded as a natural continuation of the great exhibitions of 2009 and 2010 entirely dedicated to the emblematic figure of Fabrizio De André.
