Futurist Baldessari

Where? City Museum


From Abstractionism to Dynamism

Temporary exhibition with a rich selection of works, some of them previously unpublished, covering a wide range of Roberto Marcello Baldessari’s experimentation.

A much-awaited exhibition, 13 years after the last temporary exhibition dedicated to the artist in 2011, the exhibition at the City Museum is the result of many valuable collaborations of the Fondazione Museo Civico with various institutions, first and foremost with the Mart, as well as with private collectors, and brings the focus back to the art, culture and ideas of one of the most revolutionary movements of the 20th century.

An artist gifted with an astonishing technique, whether in oil paintings, pastels, or mixed techniques, but also a very solid designer, Baldessari is today finding his rightful place among the great artists of his time. The variety of media in the 70 works on display is extremely interesting: 55 paintings, as well as three valuable sculptures, engravings, and pastels.

The exhibition, in the idea of the curator Maurizio Scudiero, is not typically chronological, but follows a thematic division according to the subjects that the artist interpreted most throughout his career, both by vocation and because they were more functional to the discourse of Futurism.

The exhibition is organised by the Fondazione Museo Civico di Rovereto in collaboration with Mart – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Trento and Rovereto, promoted by the Autonomous Province of Trento, the Vallagarina Community, the Municipality of Rovereto, the APT Rovereto Vallagarina Monte Baldo, and with the support of the Cassa Rurale Alto Garda and Rovereto.
