Michelangelo Antonioni - Il maestro del cinema moderno

11 September 2015 through 17 January 2016
Monica Vitti en Michaelangelo Antonioni

EYE presents a major exhibition devoted to Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni. With his famous trilogy The Adventure, The Night and Eclipse, Antonioni became one of the most innovative directors of the 20th century.

The Adventure (1960) ranks as a turning point in film history, marking the start of modern cinema. A stylistic perfectionist, he renewed the grammar of film by thinking less in terms of narrative and more in terms of image. Film excerpts projected onto thirteen big exhibition screens show the overpowering visual force of his images. The exhibition also features unique documents, photographs and letters from the Antonioni archive in Ferrara, birthplace of the director.

The exhibition is curated by Dominique Païni in collaboration with Jaap Guldemond, Director of Exhibitions/Curator EYE, with the assistance of Maria Luisa Pacelli (Director, Gallerie d’arte moderna e contemporanea di Ferrara) and Barbara Guidi (Chief curator, Gallerie d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Ferrara).

Exhibition concept by Fondazione Ferrara Arte and Gallerie d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea-Museo Michelangelo Antonioni di Ferrara, in collaboration with Fondazione Cinetecca di Bologna.
