Alphonse Mucha
The first major retrospective of Czech artist Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) with more than 200 works including paintings, posters, drawings, decorative works, jewelry and furnishings, tracing the creative path of this most celebrated exponent of Art Nouveau. At the turn of the end of the nineteenth and onset of the twentieth centuries, Mucha was broadly known for his style of combining images of seductive women into compositions and using innovative typographical layouts to create original posters. He ushered in a new and affordable artform that flourished in Paris’ Belle Epoque. His style was soon to expand to a series of graphic works and decorative home furnishing that appealed to art lovers in Paris and other countries. In 1904, during a visit to the US, the media hailed Mucha as the greatest decorative artist in the world.
While his fame increased internationally, Mucha developed a strong desire to contribute to the independence of the Czech people. Mucha believed in the universality of art, and its inspiring power to communicate, calling for the creation of a spiritual union of the Slavic peoples and, ultimately, of the entire human race. The Mucha doctrine was love of territory and utopian ideals as manifested in his masterpiece, The Slav Epic (1911-28).

Botero – Via Crucis. La Passione di Cristo
The Way of the Cross.  The Passion of Christ, a cycle of works created by Fernando Botero between 2010 and 2011 comprised of 27 oil paintings and 34 works on paper, manifesting a theme that has been a feature of Botero's work since his childhood and early youth in Colombia, a world abounding in religious images in both the public and private spheres.
Botero's work offers multiple levels of interpretation.  It is always an expansive take – never a purely imitative revisit – on some of the leading players in Western art history such as Paolo Uccello, Peter Paul Rubens, Diego Velázquez, Paul Cézanne and Pablo Picasso, to name but a few.  With a signature style of sumptuous, abundant forms that came to maturity in the 1970s, he builds sensual worlds around characters brimming with immense pleasure and happiness. What we see here is a crossroads where memories of his native city, Antioquia, in the heart of Medellin and of his homeland, are strongly marked by forms of worship deeply ingrained in the culture and conography.  The soft features, the ideas and the forms that seem so stable, are contradicted by the upheaval in which grief and tragedy take shape, adopting the figurative language that is a hallmark of the Colombian artist's work, yet without abandoning his uniquely distorting gaze.
through May 1

Il Giardino del Matisse
The idea for this exhibition came from a book inspired by the work of Henri Matisse, and interpreted by Samantha Friedman, with collages by Italian illustrator Cristina Amodeo.

The book, published to coincide with the exhibition of Henri Matisse: the Cut Outs, is the first in a new venture by the New York musueum involving the publication of an album for every major exhibition associated with its collection and the dissemination of new titles in other countries in cooperation with various publishers.

Her images underscore the relationship between nature and its duplicate image by way of transparent elements.

Natalie Frank / Rachel Mason – Face to Face
The first solo exhibition in Italy by Natalie Frank, with the participation of the multifaceted artist Rachel Mason. Face to Face is a confrontation between the persona and the subconscious, between the evil of the world and the malaise derived from repressed desires. Frank's paintings and drawings are stages onto which her visionary personages act out hidden fantasies. She defines her mostly female grotesque characters as “portraits of what makes us human”. Her pictorial technique maximizes the tension between the superficial and the profound, between the figurative and the abstract.
The same cruel, clownish world animates Rachel Mason's video of psychedelic folk music in which the artist, performer, singer, sculptress and video maker narrates surreal stories of romance and curiosities. Elaborating on current and historical events, Mason transforms these into intimate and subjective stories through a visual language with a powerful Gothic vein.
Natalie Frank (Austin, Texas -1980 lives and works in New York. She has shown in prestigious galleries and museum’s throughout the U.S. Rachel Mason (Los Amgeles, CA – 1978) lives and works in Los Angeles. She has shown in China and throughout the U.S. in prestigious galleries and museums.

Taryn Simon - Paperwork and the Will of the Capital
Simon's first solo exhibition in Italyfollowing her participation in the 56th Biennale di Venezia in 2015. Her most recent body of work, Paperwork and the Will of Capital comprise 12 unique sculptures and 36 limited photographs. The photographs—large, colorful, and spectacular with a nod to Pop art, custom-framed in mahogany to emulate the style of boardroom furniture,speak to the bombast of national and corporate symbolism; the sculptures—stylized concrete flower–presses containing delicate preserved floral specimens and their documentation—operate in a discrete and classified zone. A storyteller whose grist is the instability of fact, Simon's research-driven approach has produced impactful bodies of work. In Paperwork and the Will of Capital, Simon examines accords, treaties, and decrees drafted to influence systems of governance and economics, from nuclear armament and border issues to oil deals and diamond trading. All involve the countries present at the 1944 United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, which addressed the globalization of economics after World War II, leading to the establishment of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
