ONLINE ENCOUNTERS PROPOSED BY THE ARCHIVIO LUIGI PERICLE

I discovered the Archivio Luigi Pericle during the inauguration of the 58th edition of the Venice Art Biennale, when the first retrospective exhibition of the Swiss artist, illustrator and intellectual, who was born in Basle in 1926 and died in 2001 in Ascona, was arranged.

The exhibition dedicated to Luigi Pericle made me discover an artist who at a certain point of his life chose to get off the “carousel” of the art world, which it never seems to stop, to devote his life to study and research on the slopes of Monte Verità in Ascona (Swiss canton of Ticino), a place that has attracted artists, philosophers, theosophists, pacifists and intellectuals since the early 20th century.

Now the Archivio Luigi Pericle is proposing a series of online encounters to discover all aspects of the life and work of this artist.
