    Time: 9:30 am to 7:30 pm

    The Escher retrospective, which has beaten every record of visitors in recent years, will be hosted by PAN | Palazzo delle Arti Napoli, in Naples, between 1 November 2018 and 22 April 2019. Maurits Cornelis Escher was a Dutch graphic artist world renowned for his enigmatic sketches and paradoxical designs, executed with incredible detail and mathematic precision to create and construct impossible worlds. Escher had a natural intuition for mathematical drawings, and was captivated by repeating patterns of interlocking tessellations, and the paradoxical representations of infinity. Exploring the intersection between art, mathematics, science and poetry, Escher’s works have fascinated and astounded generations of artists, architects, mathematicians, musicians and designers alike. The exhibition will present not only the works of the visionary genius, but also a large section dedicated to the influence of his work on subsequent generations, from comics to advertising and cinema. A path of 200 works that start from Escher and get to the present day. The exhibition, promoted by the Department of Culture and Tourism of the City of Naples, is produced and organized by the Arthemisia Group in collaboration with the M.C. Escher Foundation and curated by Mark Veldhuysen and Federico Giudiceandrea.   THE VENUE PAN Read more [...]

    Date: 11 May 2019 - 24 November 2019

    The Venice International Art Exhibition, often called simply the Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia), is one of the oldest, most important and prestigious international art exhibitions in the world.   SHORT HISTORY The Venice Biennale was born in 1895, in order to stimulate the artistic activity and the art market in Venice, from the initiative of a group of Venetian intellectuals led by the mayor of the time, Riccardo Selvatico, who, with the resolution of April 19, 1893, proposed to set up a biennial national artistic exhibition. The first editions were held in the Palazzo Pro Arte, then in the Italian Pavilion, and now in the Central Pavilion, near the Giardini della Biennale, in the Castello district. As early as 1907, a number of other buildings began to rise around the Palazzo Pro Arte, the National Pavilions, created by famous architects in the style of the most diverse world architectures.

In that same year, for the first time, the Contemporary Music Exhibition was held, followed two years later, in 1932, by the most important and famous film festival in the world Read more [...]
