closed Mimmo Rotella. Manifesto

The show

In the year of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mimmo Rotella, the Galleria Nazionale celebrate the Italian artist with an exhibition curated by Germano Celant with Antonella Soldaini. The selected works go to compose six poster-ensembles, each one focused on one of the main techniques with which the artist experimented and the starting point of which was always the reworking of an advertising poster. 

 During his artistic journey, he came to avail himself of the rectos of the posters in the décollages  of the 1950s and ’60s; he also exploited their abstract and material aspects in the retro d’affiches  of the same years; he worked on the photomechanical processes of serial production in the photographic works on emulsified canvas and in the artypos  of the 1960s and ’70s; he concealed their message with a monochrome veil in the blanks  of the early 1980s, and he returned to the torn poster with the sovrapitture  (‘overpaintings’) in which the artist intervened by applying a powerful pictorial sign before moving on to décollages  of monumental size in the 1990s and 2000s.
