6 May-25 June. MAC Maja Arte Contemporanea presents La caccia, the first solo exhibition in Italy by Iranian artist Leila Vismeh.
The collection of ten large and medium-sized paintings was inspired by James Thurber's modern fable The Rabbits Who Caused all the Trouble. Focusing on the oppressive relationship between the rabbits and the wolves, the story alludes to the events that unfolded during world war two.
Vismeh transforms Thurber's allegorical tale into a powerful comment on the historic, social and political situation in her homeland.
Curated by Daina Maja Titonel, the exhibition opens on Friday 6 May at 17.00.
