On Flower Power. The Role of the Vase in Arts, Crafts and Design.
16 July-29 Sept. The Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea examines the important role of the flower vase - "a seemingly neutral object" - in the history of arts, crafts and design.
Curated by Martí Guixé, the exhibition uses the flower vase to offer an unconventional exploration of the "hybrid territory in which art, design and craftsmanship interact."
On display are more than 80 works that reinterpret the tradition and iconography of the vase through design, photography, sculpture and painting by leading figures in the international design scene, in addition to about 30 still lifes from the gallery’s collection by artists including De Pisis, Mafai, Morandi and Scialoja.
For exhibition details see La Galleria Nazionale website.
