The sculptor will be protagonist of an exhibition in Venice at Peggy Guggenheim Foundation.
From January 27th to May 1st 2018 the Peggy Guggenheim Collection will host the exhibition “ Marino Marini. Passioni Visive”, curated by Barbara Cervantes and Flavio Fergonzi, with the collaboration of Chiara Fabi. This is the first retrospective ever made dedicated to Marino Marini (1901 – 1980), which aspires to situate the artist Pistoia in the history of sculpture. With more than 70 artworks, the exhibition is set up in the spaces of temporary exhibitions, as well as in the museum's Project Rooms and in the veranda adjoining these spaces. Marino Marini.Passioni Visive make use of a group of curators formed by Philip Rylands, Salvatore Settiis, Carlo Sisi and Maria Teresa Tosi.
The intimacy of the Peggy Guggenheim collection, allows an unprecedented, concentrated and close reading of more than fifty sculptures by Marino Marini and twenty works, from antiquity to ' 900, with which Marini’s sculpture has been confronted. In this way a dialogue is privileged between its sculptures and those of the plastic tradition to which the artist has referred.
The exhibition Marino Marini.Passioni Visive is accompanied by a publication, published by Silvana editoriael, with essays by the curators Flavio Fergonzi, Barbara Cervantes, contributions by Chiara Fabi, Gianmarco Russo, Francesco Guzzetti and a large iconographic apparatus.
