closed Colors always run away

The show

The colors always escape proposes the new setting of the MA * GA collection, remodeled precisely following the line and rhythm of color.

Two specific insights are articulated through the spaces of the museum, highlighting some fundamental episodes in the history of Italian art from the second half of the twentieth century to today. The first is reserved for the relationship between geometric abstraction and design, from the Concrete Art Movement to the design of the fifties and sixties, with works by Soldati, Prampolini, Munari and design objects by Campi, Magistretti and Sottsass. The second focuses on the possible declinations of the idea of color as a language, from the more signistic aspects to those of a conceptual matrix characteristic of movements such as Analytical Painting, up to the more contemporary experiments of authors such as Griffa, Blank, Isgrò and Vitone.


The title of the exhibition is inspired by a reflection by Ettore Sottsass, who recalled how "colors always run away from all sides, they run away in slow motion like words, which always run away, like poetry that you can never hold in your hands , like beautiful stories, colors run away from all sides, they can never stop ".
