Nine voices. Nine journeys. Nine thrilling windows on the tumultuous and ground-breaking late-20th-century modern Italian art movement in the centuries-old art-rich Versilia area. The Church and ‘complex’ of Sant’Agostino in Pietrasanta hosts “InContemporanea” an exhibition of the work of nine local artists – nine very individual voices. Loud, bold, introspective, social, quietly revolutionary – it’s an altogether remarkable exhibition; it is curated by Antonella Serafini editor of censurati.it, a progressive blog of note, and It features paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media works from 30 years of artistic exploration by nine local artists – nine visionaries that mined the themes of art and language – artists that challenged and transcended both national conventions and international assumptions during a time of great political change.
The artists are: Vittore Baroni, Dario Barsottelli, Carlo Battisti, Antonino Bove, Gian Luca Cupisti, Emanuele Giannelli, Marco Maffei, Maximo Pellegrinetti e Claudio Tomei. The show… the experience is one of awe and wonder – personal re-invention and social re-engineering. Aaaah, those were the good ol’ days. … wait!? … THESE are the good ol’ days!
The show goes from the 22nd of October to the 11th of December. Hours: from 4pm – 7pm Closed Monday. It is free to the public. Pietrasanta delivers (the art) goods, again! Check it out!
