Bruno Pinto

MAMbo, Permanent Collection
April 25 - May 24, 2015

MAMbo – Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna dedicates to Bruno Pinto a focus exhibition in the context of the Permanent Collection from 25 April to 24 May 2015.

Friday 24 April at 6:00 pm: a meeting with the artist with the participation of Lorenzo Sassoli de Bianchi and Gianfranco Maraniello – respectively President and Director of the Istituzione Bologna Musei – and the Chancellor of the Università di Bologna, Ivano Dionigi.
On the occasion of this special exhibition, Lorenzo Sassoli de Bianchi will donate to MAMbo Il ceppo, an oil on canvas from 1966, a particularly significant piece in Pinto’s artistic evolution.

In the MAMbo installation, Il ceppo is flanked by four later works, from the ‘90s and the ‘00s, which in some way revisit and rework it. Anticipating these, not only chronologically, we find La prima natura morta, a painting from 1953 that already exhibits the physicality and constructive density that we will see in later works. The installation, on display until 24 May 2015, concludes with several more recent works and a slide show featuring a selection of critical contributions.

MAMbo will also show, in the museum’s Conference Room on 24, 25 and 26 April, several excerpts from the 3D film project Nei territori del Diavolo e Della Grazia, by Eugenio Melloni, production by ASA Audiovisivi, in which the artist is the protagonist. It is a feature film project for television, cinema, publishing and the Web, in 3D and 2D. Nei territori asks if it is still possible to have an organic view of life, using three cinematic genres: documentary, docu-fiction and drama.
