The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art inaugurates in the Central Hall "Ragione e Sentimento", an exhibition that reflects the physiognomy of its collections with particular attention to the nineteenth century.
The title, borrowed from Jane Austen 's novel of the same name, evokes, in its dichotomy, a complexity that has its roots in history. About 40 works from the Gallery's collections will be exhibited, among which works by Tranquillo Cremona , Domenico Morelli , Giacomo Favretto , Medardo Rosso alongside works by contemporary artists such as Emanuele Becheri , Alessandro Piangiamore and Barbara Probst .
“The exhibition, like the synthesis of a novel - writes Cristiana Collu, Director of the National Gallery - is concentrated in a strategic game of expressed language and silence, subversive tools that intend to present in absentia everything that cannot be told. Whoever looks must read between the lines and remember what he knows, want to know but also awaken an important imaginary that crosses history, literature and art. "
Under the guiding principle of "Time is Out of Joint", in "Reason and Sentiment" the past gives way to the story, the chronicle of contemporaneity, moving in that non-contaminable space between, in fact, reason and feeling , between nature and representation of the soul.
