To celebrate its fortieth anniversary Arte Fiera in Bologna presents “Arte Fiera 40”, an exhibition project, curated by Giorgio Verzotti and Claudio Spadoni, that traces the past 40 years of the event and offers a vision of the coming 40 by narrating the story of the Fiera since its foundation.
The exhibition develops across two locations, beginning from the Pinacoteca Nazionale in Bologna (from 28/01 to 28/03) with a selection of the most important works from the event’s leading protagonists, the Galleries, the result of a detailed consultation of archive documents to identify the most frequent participants, the most exhibited artists and those that have experienced the greatest success, and proposing a cross-section of art as seen by the market.
The exhibition concludes in the spaces of the Permanent Collection of MAMbo – the Museum of Modern Art Bologna (28/01-29/01), where a selection of works acquired by BolognaFiere will be exhibited: works by undisputed masters from the Seventies up to artists that began their work during the Nineties. Presented alongside these will be some exponents of the new generation in order to underline the importance that Arte Fiera has dedicated to unearthing younger talent.
