From 24 September to 29 October, on the occasion of Bergamo Brescia Capitale Italiana della Cultura 2023, Quadri come luoghi opens to the public, curated by Davide Ferri, in collaboration with Barbara Meneghel and with the coordination of Miral Rivalta.
The exhibition includes the work of 23 artists and is structured in five spaces, different in history and characteristics and not usually intended for art exhibitions, configuring an itinerary in some experiences of Italian painting.
The project develops around the dialogue between the works and the specificity of the spaces in which they are exhibited and a series of suggestions underlying the idea of “painting as place” or “painting as place”, starting from its adherence to the landscape (therefore submerged by the inevitable push towards the genre) and by the painting as a story of a place.
The exhibition takes place in five locations, mainly public and private historic homes and buildings and churches in as many towns in the provinces of Brescia and Bergamo, joint Italian capitals of culture for the current year.
Works by Antonio Marchetti Lamera are shown in Mornico al Serio (BG), the host venue is a 14th century farmhouse (Cascina Castello), a place also chosen by Ermanno Olmi for the movie L’albero degli Zoccoli.
