ongoing How much Bentivoglio?

The show

The exhibition Quanto Bentivoglio? celebrating the 100th anniversary of Mirella Bentivoglio (Klagenfurt 1922 - Rome 2017) - artist, curator, poet, performer and much more - looks to the future through the presentation of a hundred works still dazzling today for their ability to communicate with us, outside of the usual standards, the achievement of other possible meanings, the overcoming of the reductive limit of the boundaries of the work. In the 1970s, the verbal-visual artists, nourished by the social, cultural and political climate of that decade, wanted to overthrow the hegemonic culture to find other ways of survival.


There are also women, who have never been among the dominant culture. Mirella Bentivoglio chooses the high road for them, reserving a front row seat for the artists. Thanks to the exhibition Materialization of language in the context of the XXXVIII Venice Biennale in 1978 , Mirella Bentivoglio supports and promotes an exhibition, and then many others to follow, of women only, in which she presents their work, putting them - finally - in light, questioning herself on the female question, she represents, finds and promotes specific aspects and circumstances for each of her artists.


Both the catalog and the exhibition, curated by Nicoletta Boschiero and created in collaboration with the Mirella Bentivoglio Archive , expand the artist's gaze while maintaining an experimental role, proposing a considerable number of works, some of which unpublished alongside others that are very famous, and in the accompanying book, in addition to the text by the curator Nicoletta Boschiero, an in-depth analysis of 10 exemplary works that are still discussed today. The nature of the occasion lays the foundations of what could be a future catalog raisonné by publishing a conspicuous bibliography of the artist, written by Rosaria Abate, exemplary in showing us how substantial her critical work has been.
