ongoing Poetics of the simple.

The show

On Tuesday 14 December 2021, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art inaugurates the exhibition dedicated to Monica Bolzoni and her historic brand and performance venue Bianca e Blu to tell about her thirty years of experience as a fashion designer, with the aim of conceptually exploring the process that animated his articulated creative experience.

The poetics of the simple is the ingredient that nourished and animated the work of Monica Bolzoni, a sui generis protagonist in the history of Italian and international fashion, giving life to a personal language achieved by making highly selective choices, consistent with the free and independent personality of she. The object of her research are the archetypes of the feminine, according to a precise study of modular shapes to arrive at the development of a contemporary, sophisticated and synthetic canon of elegance that enhances the real body of the woman.

The exhibition, curated by Anna Di Cesare, is part of the enhancement process of the archives started some time ago by the National Gallery, with a view to a transversality of interests that characterizes the cultural offer. The acquisition of Monica Bolzoni's paper fashion archive (sketches, publications, photographs) by an institution such as the National Gallery represents a significant recognition of the cultural role played by fashion design as well as an important step in the contemporary debate that recently questions about fashion archives, more and more real archeology devices of the present, shared ideal and collective heritages.
