After its initial presentation at Palazzo Fabroni, Pistoia (September 16, 2017 – January 7, 2018), Marino Marini. Visual Passions will travel to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in a slightly different form. The exhibition will include major works by Marino Marini (1901-80) as well as selected works by artists including Giacomo Manzù, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin and others, and also Etruscan objects and Italian sculpture from the 15th century. This presentation will serve to contextualize Marini’s work in a broader art historical context and to establish a closer and innovative dialogue between his own work and the sculptural tradition he referred to. Overcoming chronological or genre limitations, Marino Marini. Visual Passions will offer an unprecedented and at times provocative re-visitation of themes explored by Marini.
