The show

Palazzo Ducale in Genoa is ready to welcome, from 9 September 2021 to 20 February 2022, the most large and complete anthological exhibition dedicated to the great Dutch genius Maurits Cornelis Escher, today one of the most beloved artists globally and whose impossible worlds have entered the imagination collective making it a true icon of the world of modern art. With over 200 works and his most representative works such as Hand with reflective sphere (1935), Vincolo d’unione (1956), Metamorphosis II (1939), Day and Night (1938) and the Emblemata series, the exhibition presents in 8 sections an excursus of his entire and extensive artistic production. For the first time, in Genoa the public will be able to experience the imaginative Escherian universe through unpublished immersive rooms and impossible structures that will be compared with works of great artists visionary artists of the caliber of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720 - 1778) and Victor Vasarely (1906 - 1997) Between art, mathematics, science, physics, nature and design, the Escher exhibition is a unique event for get to know a restless artist, reserved but undoubtedly brilliant and to measure himself actively with the many perspective, geometric and compositional paradoxes that underlie the works by him and which still continue to inspire generations of new artists in every field. Promoted and organized by the Palazzo Ducale Foundation for Culture and Arthemisia, in collaboration with M. C. Escher Foundation, the exhibition is curated by Mark Veldhuysen - CEO of M.C. Escher Company - and Federico Giudiceandrea - one of Escher's most important experts al world.
