Exhibition and Conference Hans-Joachim Staude and the Art of the Novecento Italiano
The retrospective exhibition at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, curated by Francesco Poli and Elena Pontiggia, explores this aspect, and sets Staude in the context of his age. Twenty-seven of his most signi cant works from various periods will be on show. Reference is also made to previous exhibitions, especially the Palazzo Pitti exhibition in Florence, but with a broader analysis of his pictorial style and his theoretical and cultural background, which is also documented in the catalogue through writings by the artist and previously unpublished material.
A key moment during the exhibition will be a conference involving leading experts on the period in question. eir papers will contribute to a better understanding and fuller assessment of the artist (the conference programme can be downloaded at cini.it).
