closed The Violin of Ingres

The show

Curated by Chiara Parisi

Le Violon d'Ingres is an exhibition that pays homage to the historical power of Villa Medici, with the aim of bringing together the history of art with the contemporary, creating a bold and unexpected dialogue. Le Violon d'Ingres is an exhibition born from a dialogue between the curator and the artist Christian Boltanski, an exceptional exhibition on the transversal and radical practices of brilliant personalities of all times.

Focused on the figure of Victor Hugo and on a rigorous and surprising selection of his drawings - by many contemporary artists considered increasingly of great inspiration -, the exhibition presents at the same time the passions and obsessions, less known to the public, of extraordinary figures such as Guillaume Apollinaire, Antonin Artaud, Samuel Beckett, Jean Cocteau, Sergueï Mikhailovich Eisenstein, Federico Fellini, Jean Genet, Sacha Guitry, Franz Kafka, Pierre Klossowski, Carlo Levi, René Magritte, Nelson Mandela, Louise Michel, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Arnold Schönberg, and contemporaries Etel Adnan, Chantal Akerman, Christian Boltanski, Chris Kraus, Pierre Guyotat, Abbas Kiarostami, David Lynch, Patti Smith and Robert Wilson.
