ESCHER • PALAZZO DUCALE • GENOA, ITALY
09/09/2021 – 02/20/2022
From the 9th of September 2021 Palazzo Ducale hosts the largest and most complete anthological exhibition dedicated to the great Dutch genius Maurits Cornelis Escher, one of the most loved artists in the world and whose impossibile worlds have entered the collective imagination making him a true icon of the world of modern Art.
With over 200 works, including his most representative ones like Hand with Reflecting Sphere (1935), Bond of Union (1956), Metamorphosis II (1939), Day and night (1939) and the series of Emblemata, the exhibitions presents an excursus of his entire and broad artistic production.
Among art, mathematics, science, physics, nature and design, the exhibition is a unique event to learn more about an restless artist, confidential but certainly brilliant and to closely face the many perspective, geometric and compositional paradoxes behind his works that still today keep inspiring generations of new artists in every field.
At the exhibition it will be possible to explore Escher's imaginary universe through new immersive rooms and impossible structures that will be compared with works from great visionary artists like Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720 – 1778) and Victor Vasarely (1906 – 1997).
