We are pleased to announce a new exhibition which will also show three works from the Maurits Srl collection. To be seen from 16 November in Reggio Emilia, Palazzo Magnani e Chiostri di San Pietro.

The exhibition explores the profound meanings of Ornament, no longer seen as a merely superficial embellishment but as a phenomenon that impacts our daily life and relationship with the aesthetic dimension, due to the effects of historical processes, the interweaving of cultures and philosophical, sociological and anthropological influences.

  • Since 2003 Maurits is lending prints from its collection to exhibitions organized worldwide. Each exhibition is accompanied by an elaborate catalogue.

  • The creative genius of Maurits Cornelis Escher comes to Catalonia for the first time thanks to Arthemisia, Evolucionarte and Museu Marítim de Barcelona, in collaboration with The M.C. Escher Foundation and with the support of the Barcelona City Council, the Barcelona Provincial Council and with the participation of RolDigital.

    The exhibition is curated by Mark Veldhuysen, CEO of the M.C. Escher Company, and Federico Giudiceandrea, an Italian collector and expert on the artist.

    The Escher exhibition, which hosts over 200 works, presents masterpieces from the artist’s surrealist period such as Hand with Reflecting Sphere, Bond of Union, Relativity and Belvedere.

    This is the first major exhibition for the Sala Gran de las Drassanes in Barcelona and brings the city of Barcelona onto the international circuit of major exhibitions. Escher is hosted from the 29th of April in the spectacular Sala Grande of the Gothic complex of the Drassanes Reials de Barcelona, located at the end of La Rambla de Barcelona, next to the statue of Columbus and facing the sea.

    When we move, what happens in the place we left? Does it remain empty? Does it fill up? With what?

    The Greek philosopher Aristotle (384–322 BC) responds that bodies move from one place to another like fish in water and that nature does not allow for emptiness. Hence another question arises. If nature is full, what forms can the primordial elements, or ‘atoms’ if we prefer, take to match one another and fill the void?

    Since the time of Euclid (who lived between the fourth and third centuries BC), researchers of geometry and algebra have looked for possible answers. Alongside them, generations of artists have measured themselves against the same theme, taking it from the three dimensions of space to the two dimensions of the flat surface and designing tiles that, by translation, cover it in full. A classic example is the tiling of the Alhambra, in Granada.

    Filling the Void presents instead a review of the most recent works dedicated to the tessellation of flat surfaces: those carried out by M.C. Escher in the 1930–70s and those from a series of contemporary artists inspired by the same tradition.

    The exhibition is a part of the show “The Poetry of Primes – From Pitagora to algorithms”, curated by Piergiorgio Odifreddi.

    Guided Tour with the curator Federico Giudiceandrea

  • Escher is the best known, but not the only artist who has measured himself against the periodic isometries of the plane, to put it in scientific terms. Before him, Koloman Moser, an exponent of Viennese Art Nouveau, did it and after him, a group of contemporary artists such as Andrew Crompton, David Hop, Hans Kuiper, Francine Campagne, Alain Nicolas, Robert Fathauer and Sam Brade.

    The exhibition Filling the void – MC Escher and beyond at the StadtGalerie (Galleria Civica) in Bressanone offers a review of the graphic works of these artists: a total of 26 works, mostly prints. Each of them is accompanied by a graphic card that highlights and illustrates the characteristics. Among the works on display are eight tessellations by MC Escher and some aperiodic tessellations by Richard Hassell.

  • For individual exhibition projects, Maurits Srl provides installations and films that are produced by selected companies in coordination with the Escher Foundation. Maurits Srl also publishes catalogues for other exhibitions.

  • Tessellations are periodic when a tile repeated by translation is denti ed: a square, for example, is translated in north-south and east-west directions. As well as being translated each shape can be rotated. A third movement can be re ecting the shape on di erent axes.

    Not all the possible combinations of these movements create a periodic tessellation. 17 of these are possible. In this sense we refer to the periodic isometries of the plane or, more simply, to the “wallpaper group”.

  • The video was shown for the first time at the Escher exhibition in Napoli (November 2018). Escher’s famous graphic is populated here by small figures who do not let themselves be disturbed in their everyday activities by the impossible architecture.
