February 1–April 14, 2014
This is the fourth edition of the innovative exhibition series first conceived in 2002 by Luca Massimo Barbero that offers visitors fresh perceptions of the museum’s collections by putting them in dialogue with works by more contemporary artists from other collections. Works from the early 20th century avant-garde connect thematically in a confrontation and comparison with postwar and contemporary works, tracing the evolution of forms of visual expression as they change with time. The curatorial narrative represents an opportunity to explore evolving themes such as light, twilight, and darkness, in a repeated confrontation between Day and Night. This exhibition is organized by Luca Massimo Barbero.
