The show

From October 30 to January 29, the MAC Museum of Contemporary Art in Lissone presents "Festival", the first museum anthology dedicated to the artist Francesco Lauretta (Ispica, Ragusa, 1964 - lives and works in Florence), curated by Francesca Guerisoli.

About fifty of the artist's major works - paintings, drawings, sculptures, actions, installations - lead the public into the heart of his creative path, from which the joyful and vital atmosphere of a festival is released, a popular festival full of events art, culture, folklore and music. Set up on the three floors of the MAC, following a thematic order, the exhibition focuses on the main points of Lauretta's research path, already known to the citizens of Lissone for the acquisition of the painting Doctor Pasavento with the Lissone Painting Award 2020/2021 Edition .

The exhibition is the first exhibition event that inaugurates the artistic direction of Francesca Guerisoli, who took up the position as director of the Museum last September. The first public meeting took place on 24 October, a dialogue on the MAC design collection of the new director together with the design historian Anty Pansera, Compasso d'Oro for Career 2020.

Francesco Lauretta is a multifaceted artist, fine thinker and author of philosophical writings, known in the artistic world for his extraordinary ability to interpret the world through painting, often not limited to the bi-dimension of the painting, but extended to three-dimensional space through the '' use of heterogeneous materials, in common use, which give life to multisensory installations.

 What distinguishes part of his production is the careful definition of the formal detail, the chromatic vivacity, the unsettling cuts with which he frames the subject, the grafts of figures, colors and elements that make the work enigmatic and its interpretation multiple. If the joy of living is a characteristic common to all of his works, it is conveyed, however, by contrast through the juxtaposition of "life" and "death", generating a profound, albeit calibrated, ambiguity.
