Bruno Munari (Milan 1907-1998) was one of the international leaders of the renewal of the visual and material culture of the 20th century. His artistic path was versatile and seminal, not only for the variety of his references to the world of art and culture, but also because he was able early on to link together sculpture, industrial design, painting, cinema, animation, publishing, graphic design, and teaching. Still today his constant references to the creative freedom of childhood and a subtle yet unbridled irony have made him a reference point for the younger generations, also as a result of the wide-ranging cultural plan that he promoted which included such extra-European art experiences as those of the Far East.READ MORE ARTIST DETAIL PRESS KIT

The show, curated by Gianluca Ranzi, consists of 20 works measuring 42 x 20 cm., and one measuring 84 x 40 cm., together with some historical works to illustrate the artist’s development from the 1960s until today. The title of both the show and the collages derives from the well-known Parisian magazine Pariscope, founded in 1965, and the weekly issues from August 2016 were used by Nanni Balestrini as the prime material for his collages.READ MORE ARTIST DETAIL PRESS KIT
