8 July-11 Oct. The Museo Carlo Bilotti presents three interconnecting exhibitions featuring the work of three artists from different nationalities, generations and styles: Yves Klein, Sidival Fila and Tito.
Klein (1928-1962) was the main protagonist of the French artistic movement Nouveau réalisme and a pioneer of performance art; Brasilian artist Sidival Fila was born in 1962 and became a Franciscan monk in Assisi; and Tito Amodei (born in 1926 and better recognised by his first name) is an Italian painter, sculptor and member of the Passionist community in Monte Argentario north of Rome.
All three artists have been drawn to the religious life and their work is united by a common use of recurring themes and imagery as well as a complex synthesis of light, colour and form.
The exhibition TITO: il segno il colore is curated by Carlo Fabrizio Carli, organised in collaboration with Rome's Sala 1 gallery and runs until 11 Oct; Spazi dell’Anima: Yves Klein e la devozione a S. Rita da Cascia is curated by Edvige Bilotti, supported by the Institut Français Italia and runs until 4 Oct; and Sidival Fila: TrasFormAzione is curated by Cinzia Fratucello and runs until 11 Oct.
