LOOK AT ME!
The Body in Art from the 1950s up to today
curated by Angela Madesani e Annamaria Maggi
Fondazione Ghisla Art Collection, Locarno
8 September 2019 – 5 January 2020
Fondazione Ghisla Art Collection presents Look at me! The Body in Art from the 1950s up to today, a transversal reading of art, from the post-war period to the present day, through the theme of the body in photography, by the works of international artists and photographers.
An image of the American artist Irving Penn, dated 1949-1950, serves as an introduction to the exhibition, curated by Angela Madesani and Annamaria Maggi, which will be open to the public from 8 September to 5 January 2020.
Look at me! is an articulated investigation through the medium of photography, which, starting from the socially-engaged works of the 1960s and 1970s, takes the visitor through to the great photographers of the ‘80s, before reaching the contemporary period.
