Don’t Miss The New Piero Fornasetti Exhibition In StockholmTuesday 12 March 2019
Don’t Miss The New Piero Fornasetti Exhibition In Stockholm ⇒ On June 14th 2019, the exhibition FORNASETTI Inside Out Outside In opens at the Artipelag, in Stockholm. It’s the first exhibition in Sweden to welcome the entire output of Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988), right up to the contemporary work of his son Barnaba Fornasetti. This year, the new museum complex for modern and contemporary art has chosen to dedicate its main summer exhibit to this multifaceted Italian artist and designer. Today CovetED brings you a bit more of what you can’t miss in Stockholm.
Piero Fornasetti, a figure with many sides, but known mainly on the international design scene, is investigated and unveiled in all his complexity, revealing how his work encompasses various artistic disciplines. It is a chronological journey that interacts with the museum’s architecture, bringing out the richness of his imagination and that constant movement, Inside Out Outside In, which characterises his fluid and borderless creativity, but also that singular method which applies technical competence to express a personal vision and to depict reality. In a double and almost perpetual movement, which remains a central feature of Fornasetti’s entire artistic oeuvre.
His creative ideas seem to emerge from an inexhaustible source, and it becomes clear that his notion of design itself takes its cue from this absence of temporal and disciplinary boundaries, from a philosophical reflection that permeates all categories and puts man and the human condition at its centre.
Precisely because of these characteristics, Piero Fornasetti was long considered an outsider on the art scene. Today, in an altered environment where the boundaries between art, design and craftsmanship seem to be relaxing, this exhibition arising from a collaboration between Artipelag and Fornasetti offers a new interpretation, revealing the traits that make him a model for a younger generation of artists.
Artipelag is a meeting place, where art exhibitions, cultural activities, music, architecture, events, Swedish design and good food are set against the backdrop of the magnificent Stockholm archipelago.
