The largest exhibition ever dedicated to Mario Nigro, a leading figure on the Italian art scene of the 20th century, is hosted in two venues: Palazzo Reale (until Sept. 17) and Museo del Novecento (until Nov. 5). On display are more than one hundred and forty works from 1947 until the last in 1992, including paintings, three-dimensional works, on paper and a wide selection of documents. The exhibition includes works exhibited at the Venice Biennales of 1964, 1968, 1978, 1982, and 1986 and at the 10th Rome Quadrennial in 1973.
The itinerary at the Palazzo Reale marks the artist’s different stylistic moments. It unfolds through eight rooms on the piano nobile of the Palazzo Reale that trace Nigro’s activity with paintings and three-dimensional works created from the second half of the 1940s onward: works that bear witness to an experimental artistic language and a decided orientation toward abstract and geometric compositional structures.
A wide selection of documents is on display in the Archives Space of the Museo del Novecento and it is possible to learn more about works on paper.
