Mafai-Kounellis: La Libertà del pittore

The works of Roman painter Mario Mafai (1902-1965) alongside an installation by Rome-based Greek artist Jannis Kounellis, who reinterprets Mafai's later paintings.

The exhibition centres around the dramatic change in style in Mafai's work during the last decade of his life, something the artist referred to as the "radical reduction of the essentials" in his painting.

The Kounellis installation is on show with 40 of Mafai's paintings from 1928-1964, along with archive material and the screening of the documentary Mafai mio padre, directed by the artist’s daughter Giulia.
