Indelible Portraits

From 17 May 2014 to 20 July 2014

Emilio Isgrò’s exhibition sets out to pay homage from a Sicilian artist to Curzio Malaparte, the most Tuscan of all19th century writers. The exhibition takes place within the ambit of Contemporary Prato and was opened on the occasion of European Night at the Museum.

Isgrò is not only one of the most internationally well-known painters and conceptual artists, but he is also a poet, writer, dramatist and director. He is the founder of  “text erasures”, including encyclopaedias, manuscripts, books of maps, cinematic works, in a kind of reverse rereading and reinterpretation of language, transforming it from verbal to visual. His erasures transform a negative symbol into a positive gesture.

The exhibition can be viewed on the Ground floor of the Museum, using the same ticket that was used to gain entry to the Museum. For opening hours please see Hours and Prices.
