The show

For the 17th edition of the Giornata del Contemporaneo, promoted by AMACI - Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums with the support of the General Direction for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture, the International Gallery of Modern Art of Ca 'Pesaro presents the work by Gabriele Grones. As for every edition, Ca 'Pesaro will have free admission for the whole day.

Gabriele Grones exhibits at Ca 'Pesaro in dialogue with the works of the permanent collection, alongside which are exhibited his new works which are an artistic and conceptual elaboration. In particular, the artist, with an extremely realistic pictorial technique, on small canvases, joins with two portraits the wax sculptures of Medardo Rosso and the painting The White Mask by Fernand Khnopff, extracts and elaborates some details from the work of Joaquìn Sorolla Sewing the sail, he resumes The Misses by Felice Casorati, the paintings by Umberto Moggioli Small landscape of Burano and Autumn in Treporti, the Vases and Bottles and Still Life by Giorgio Morandi and Giovanni Anselmo, the sculpture Untitled, a famous piece of art poor.

Grones was chosen by Ca 'Pesaro in 2020 for the Level 0 program of Artverona and had already entered the selection of the Mestre Painting Award of the same year. The exhibition, curated by Elisabetta Barisoni and Giovanna Nicoletti, continues a tradition, triggered in 1902, of relating the Masters with the new generation of contemporary art, which has recently been renewed also with the exhibition experiences inaugurated in 2019 with Sophie Ko in dialogue with Auguste Rodin's Il thinker and continue in 2020 with the residence of Paola Angelini in the rooms of Ca 'Pesaro, the outcome of which was presented in 2021 in the museum's project room.

The paintings were born as a site specific project for the Museum and offer the visitor an unprecedented reading of Grones' production and at the same time a new look at the works of the Gallery's Masters, creating an orchestrated and rhythmic set of relationships, tensions and analogies, iconographic references. and shared directions.
