Viola! Pablo Echaurren e gli indiani metropolitani

MAMbo, Project Room
28 January – 14 May2023

The planning of the MAMbo Project Room confirms its vocation to the rebuilding, narration and enhancement of the artistic experiences of the Bolognese and Emilia-Romagna territory, with Viola! Pablo Echaurren e gli indiani metropolitani (Viola! Pablo Echaurren and the Metropolitan Indians), the new exhibition project curated by Sara De Chiara, which opens on January 27 th , 2023 at 6pm on the occasion of ART CITY Bologna.
The exhibition will remain open to the public from 28 January to 14 May 2023 and is organized with the support of the Trust per l'Arte Contemporanea and in collaboration with the Fondazione Echaurren Salaris, Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History and Ab Rogers Design.

The exhibition offers the opportunity to investigate in depth, for the first time, the relationship between Pablo Echaurren (Rome, 1951) and the Bolognese environment, through a selection of works made between 1977 and 1978, pages from Lotta Continua, collages, fanzines and illustrations which draw inspiration from the events and poetics of the movement of 1977. The exhibition journey includes a group of “small squares” made around the first half of the 70’s, whose production was stopped just after the events of that year, which was so crucial for Bologna. In addition to those, there are a few assemblages which fall outside of the two-year period 1977-78, collected within boxes and belonging to a recent production (2020-22) which focuses on the scientific discoveries related to the Neanderthal man, but also comes back to reflect on the experience from the 70’s.

Opening: Friday 27 January 2023 6 pm
