GIORGIO MORANDI: the Italian Master of Modern Times
The Museum of Modern Art in Bologna, MAMbo, with the support of the Region of Emilia-Romagna, in co-operation with ShContemporary, will celebrate the work of one of the most admired Italian painters of the twentieth century, Giorgio Morandi. The Italian master’s extensive array of contemplative and introspective still-lifes, landscapes, engravings and etchings have earned him a distinctive place in Modern art history.
The small retrospective will take place at ShContemporary in the Shanghai Exhibition Centre from September 9-12, 2010 and will consist of an exhibition of selected pieces of Morandi’s work, and a full day workshop dedicated to exploring the influence that Morandi’s work has had on modern and contemporary Chinese art.
Three of Morandi’s works from the Morandi Museum in Bologna will be on display in a special area of the Western Wing of the Shanghai Exhibition Centre, together with photographs of Morandi’s studio taken by Paolo Ferrari. The Bolognese Ferrari is one of a handful of photographer’s to have gained access to and photographed the painter’s home and studio in Bologna and the still life objects which served as the subject of hundreds of Morandi’s paintings.
On September 11th a workshop focused on Morandi’s work will take place at ShContemporary. Gianfranco Maraniello, the director of MAMbo, will be present to offer an in-depth look at Morandi’s body of work and the different stages the painter’s work went through. He will be joined by Chinese art professionals who will show the impact Morandi’s work has had on Chinese artists in the last few decades. The workshop is organized in co-operation with the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou where the study of the technique used by Giorgio Morandi has been considerably popular with students for many years.
Established in 2007, ShContemporary has become an essential art fair in Asia. Its leading position in China, focus on experimental ideas, and commitment to developing new collectors in the region, has made it an art fair with a clear vision for the future of the Asian market.
The fourth edition will be held from 9th to 12th September at the amazing Shanghai Exhibition Centre. Preview and Vernissage on September 8th.
