New exhibitions open in September, kicking off the new season featuring big names alongside promising artists.
Not to be missed is the Vincent Van Gogh. Cultured Painter exhibition at the Mudec - Museum of Cultures, from September 21st to January 28th. Van Gogh was the painter we all know, but he was also an extremely erudite intellectual who was well-educated on the cultural debate of his time: a passionate reader and collector of prints, as well as an attentive observer of the most current artistic trends. The exhibition narrates this side of the artist, highlighting the books he much admired and his love for Japan.
The appointment with the Furla Series project returns to the GAM - Gallery of Modern Art which, since 2017, has brought exhibitions of contemporary artists to the museum. Their works are brought to life in the elegant rooms of what was once the Villa Reale in Milano.
From September 15th to December 17th are the dates for Somethings in the World, a solo exhibition by Suzanne Jackson, which presents a glimpse of the artist’s research for the last fifty years along an exhibition itinerary that retraces its key moments, from the dreamlike paintings of the Seventies to the radical experiments of the more recent free-hanging ‘anti-canvas’.
Contemporary art also reigns supreme at Pirelli Hangar Bicocca, which presents an exhibition dedicated to Thao Nguyen Phan, a young Vietnamese artist who works with video, installation, drawing and painting to retrace the turbulent historical events of her country of origin, and to intertwine them with literature, philosophy and everyday life.
