BREAKING CONVENTIONS. IN THE NEW THEMATIC EXHIBITION OPENED TODAY AT FONDAZIONE PRADA IN MILAN, THE CLASSIC CONCEPTION OF THE PAINTING AS AN ARTIFACT FRONT IS FOLDED IN AN EXHIBITION ENTITLED 'RECTO VERSO'
The artists chosen by Thought Council have knowingly placed the emphasis on the element usually hidden, forgotten or overlooked of the back.
Artists active in the last two years such as Louis-Leopold Boilly, Roy Lichtenstein, Luca Bertoldo for painting and others like Gerard Byrne, Philippe Gronon, Ian Wallace for photography, oppose this classical convention and bring to the fore the back of their framework.
In the frontal (Recto) artwork, his back (Verso) becomes the new subject of investigation.
Opens tomorrow December 3rd until February 14th 2016.
