A visual story through the selection of about 200 photographs, from the most famous to the least known, up to some still unpublished.
«You have to enter the works, feel them and make them your own, even love them; if you don't succeed in this, you won't even be able to take good photographs», Claudio Abate.
The exhibition traces Abate's production through the "lens" of his archive, a space at the same time for work and conceptual which allows us to investigate the deepest and most hidden aspects of its author and which today constitutes a precious heritage for historical-artistic studies on Italian and international art. In fact, Claudio Abate's production ranges from photographs of works, artists and exhibitions of Arte Povera, to shots on the art and exhibition scene in Italy and abroad, up to photographs on theatre, fashion, customs, current events.
Nine thematic sections, enriched by archival documents, films, period testimonies, to bring to light Abate's relationships with artists and institutions, but also to deepen his photographic research.
