closed On Flower Power.

The show

With the exhibition "On Flower Power. The Role of the Vase in Arts, Crafts and Design", curated by Martí Guixé, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art explores the hybrid territory in which art, design and craftsmanship dialogue.

The exhibition represents the first opportunity for the National Gallery to confront these languages in relation to contemporary art and focuses on an apparently neutral object: the vase of flowers . This element, a recurring archetype, becomes the medium of choice for a narrative that intertwines the history of art, the history of applied arts and the history of design.

From an obsolete object, the vase is "rediscovered" starting from the second half of the twentieth century when artists, architects and designers begin to re-codify this typology, which has now become a real "icon" of everyday life. Thanks to the shapes and the heterogeneity of use and dimensions, the vase is reconsidered in its role as a mere container and becomes a design training ground through which to show one's point of view and free creativity.
