closed Mimmo Rotella. Manifest

The show

The exhibition is proposed as the most complete scientific survey on the production of Mimmo Rotella, in the year of the hundredth anniversary of his birth. The selected works, over one hundred and sixty, compose six large poster-sets, each centered on one of the main techniques that the artist has experimented with and whose starting point is always the reworking of the advertising poster.

During his journey he came to make use of the recto of the posters in the décollages of the fifties and sixties; to exploit its abstract and material aspect in the retro affiches of the same years; to resort to the photomechanical procedures of serial production in photographic transfers on emulsified canvas and in the artypos of the sixties and seventies; to conceal the message with a monochrome tissue in the blanks of the early 1980s, before returning to the torn poster with overpainting where the artist intervenes by affixing a powerful pictorial sign and, in the 1990s and 2000s, with monumental décollages.
