The Museo Morandi continues the promotion of its own collection through a programme of temporary exhibitions showing the work of Giorgio Morandi alongside that of artists who have in various ways explored and reinterpreted his approach to art. After the exhibitions dedicated in recent years to Bernd & Hilla Becher, Alexandre Hollan, Wayne Thiebaud, Tacita Dean and Rachel Whiteread, it will be the turn of Brigitte March Niedermair from 15 November to 3 April 2016, who will be presenting two series of photographic works in dialogue with the collection of the museum in a show called Horizon.

The works on display at the MAMbo – Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna, which houses the collections of the Museo Morandi, spring from two different lines of research, carried out in places that are not just physically but conceptually distant. On the one hand Giorgio Morandi’s studio on Via Fondazza, a snug and intimate place, custodian of the mystery of his poetics, and on the other the pyramids of Egypt, imposing and majestic works of funerary architecture, repositories of the greatest mysteries of the civilizations of the past.

And yet there is an unseen but coherent thread that connects these two lines of research: the study of the horizon, that invisible mental space which marks the limits of the visible and which symbolically represents the boundary of an inner spiritual quest.

The catalogue of the exhibition (Rizzoli International Publications, Inc), edited by Gianfranco Maraniello, will be promoted on Saturday 30 January 2016, h 4.30 p.m., ARTE FIERA (Hall Melodia, Service Center, 1st floor).
