LEONARDO DA VINCI AND THE CONTEMPORARIES
Leonardo da Vinci is probably the most famous artist in the world, and his works are an integral part of the collective consciousness, and sometimes are more famous than the artist himself.
For a contemporary artist is almost inevitable measuring himself against Leonardo da Vinci, and the results could be surprising.
An exhibition organized at the Pisacane Arte gallery in Milan will feature 11 artists who will reinterpret Leonardo’s works and the heritage of the Renaissance genius through an interactive exhibition set-up.
It’s not easy to compete against the genius of Leonardo without displeasing someone, if you don’t exhibit his masterpieces the way we are used to knowing them.
Going beyond the Mona Lisa, the main attraction for the visitors of the Louvre Museum is not taken for granted, but is possible.
11 contemporary artists on exhibition at the Pisacane Arte gallery in Milan up to October 30th 2016 will try to do that.
On this occasion each artist will present a contemporary reinterpretation of Leonardo da Vinci, using his own artistic language.
An original journey among paintings on canvas, sculptures and real reproductions of Leonardo’s machines that all visitors will see with their own eyes.
It will be a unique chance to rediscover the genius of Leonardo and to feel new emotions in the city that lived off his splendour.
The artists: Franco Anselmi, Marino Benigna, Luca Bonfanti, Cannaò, Renato Natale Chiesa, Domenico Gabbia, Milo, Enzo Rizzo, Filippo Scimeca, Togo, Tiziana Vanetti.
