Within the project "Sotto il Segno del Contemporaneo/Under the sign of the contemporary" dedicated to the extraordinary cultural season 1965-1975, Cagliari inaugurates a monographic exhibition dedicated to Rosanna Rossi, a great protagonist of abstraction in Italy.
PERCORSININTERROTTI-UNINTERRUPTED ROUTES is a tale divided in two chapters, which tells the continuous and progressive experimentation of this extraordinary artist, able to combine method, technique, rhythm and rigour with a great freedom of expression and ongoing challenges.
Extraordinary union of creative vitality and research for experimental languages, Rosanna Rossi was born in Cagliari in 1937 (where she still lives and works). Among the leading exponents of abstraction in Italy, with her work she has been going through over sixty years of artistic history of our country, helping Sardinia to take part to the national and international art circuit.
The City and the Civic Museums of Cagliari dedicate this monographic exhibition to the creator of the “Lacerations", of the vibrant and accurate paintings “Carats” or the latest Camouflage.
Curated by Maria Luisa Frongia, Marzia Marino and Anna Maria Montaldo, the first part of the exhibition retraces the turning points of the artist's continuous path: from abstract compositions of the early 70s up to the most current works, through a selection of works that highlight the accuracy and originality of her creative processes, both in the painting research and in the engravings.
The second part of the exhibition, which will inaugurate on July 21st in the new exhibition space of the Civic Museums, C.ARTE.C-Cava Contemporary Art, will show to the public the most innovative and experimental research of Rosanna Rossi: "other materials", assembly works and the ready-made of the 90s, the glasses, the "spiny bodies" and public art speeches recorded by photos and videos.
