closed Guglielmo Spotorno. Memories from the future

Curated by: Claudio Cerritelli

The show

Four years after the 2015 exhibition dedicated to the theme of the city, Guglielmo Spotorno proposes in the Permanent exhibition spaces a new exhibition of paintings gathered under the title "Memories from the future", by the critic Claudio Cerritelli, professor of History of the contemporary art at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts.

The exhibition documents the many themes that the artist has faced over the last decade, alternating visions rooted in reality and ghosts of appearance, fragments of landscape and unreal dreams, sea transparencies and impetuous sails, abstract self-portraits and naturalist icons, events of chronicle and lines of philosophical reflection, simultaneous ways of communicating the profound pictorial feeling that the artist also reveals on the parallel side of poetic writing.

The viewer finds himself immersed in the atmosphere suspended between dream and story that Spotorno's painting expresses as a continuous succession of perceptive and cognitive instants that lead beyond the boundaries of appearing, towards the infinite surfacing of elsewhere, understood as a persistent becoming imaginative. In this sense, "Memories from the future" are visions that renew the vital relationship with the past, realizing new connections between matter and light, outside established guidelines, beyond the usual space-time parameters. Precisely because the anxieties of living are always in tune with the tensions of painting for Spotorno and their mutual breath is not satisfied in the present but is projected towards the thrill of the future.

On the occasion of the exhibition, a catalog will be published with a photographic reproduction of the works on display, a critical comment by the curator, and bio-bibliographical notes by the Spotorno Archive.
