The Ettore Fico Museum is pleased to present, for the first time in Turin, an extremely significant journey within the vast collection of Ernesto Esposito: an internationally renowned designer, he has collected - and continues to do so today! - important works by the greatest contemporary artists ranging from photography to installation, from painting to video up to monumental works, with great versatility and anticipatory intuition.
Known all over the world for his collaborations in haute couture (Marc Jacobs, Sergio Rossi, Sonia Rykiel, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, etc.) Ernesto Esposito is also a tireless researcher who works in close contact with the most influential galleries in the sector.
A tireless globe trotter, since the 1980s he has known and associated with artists such as Cy Twombly, Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Helmut Newton, just to name a few.
The privilege of friendship with all of them has allowed him to create one of the most important and multifaceted contemporary art collections, from which the works for the "ME TWO" exhibition were selected which, in turn, is divided into two distinct sections : "Some people" and "Brasil!".
