closed Details. Shapes and signs in fashion fabrics and techniques

Curated by: Matilde Amaturo, Valentina Filamingo

The show

The Details exhibition will open to the public on 29 October. Shapes and signs in fabrics and fashion techniques at the Boncompagni Ludovisi Museum belonging to the Directorate of State Museums of the City of Rome directed by Mariastella Margozzi.

The photographic exhibition, curated by Matilde Amaturo and Valentina Filamingo, will remain open to the public until January 30, 2022.

“The details are important, too often we exclude them, we evade them, accustomed to looking at the total, the whole, the accomplished, absorbed by our daily life. In the photographs in the exhibition, the camera lens is turned to search for the segment, the portion, the detail, which, combined with other details, makes up the totality of the dress, drawing the final work. Extrapolated from the context, the detail becomes unique, a work in its own right; for those who frequent modern and contemporary art it is possible, in these photographs, to “read” and recognize the traits and styles of an artist ”.

Thus Roberto Galasso gives voice to the twenty shots on display. It is not the photographic eye of the fashion shows, but the eye that probes the textures and gracefully takes up the interiority, the spirit of the yarns, sequins and rhinestones. And it opens up to investigations, reflections and multiple understandings.

Roberto Galasso's shots add a piece to the collections of the Boncompagni Ludovisi Museum, already imbued with woven fashion and fashion told through pictorial and sculptural images: that of photographed fashion, whose detail is iconographic “survival” and “mutation”.
