MANOLO VALDES till July!

Exhibition by Manolo Valdés at Palazzo Cipolla, Rome, reopens on the 27th of April

The great exhibition by the Spanish artist held at Palazzo Cipolla in Rome, extended until the 11th of July due to the commitment of the promotor Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Internazionale, which promoted it, and the willingness of the gallery and lenders, reopens on the 27th of April when the Lazio region returns to the yellow zone.

This exhibition has been strongly advocated by Professor Emmanuele F. M. Emanuele Chairman of Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Internazionale, organised by POEMA in association with the Contini Gallery in Venice, supported by Comediarting and Arthemisia, and curated by Gabriele Simongini.

Professor Emanuele declared, “I really hope that this umpteenth reopening of exhibitions spaces is finally definitive and I am really delighted to be able to welcome visitors to Palazzo Cipolla, in the most scrupulous conditions of personal safety, until summer. Manolo Valdes is an extraordinary artist who has stayed away from Rome for too long and is undoubtedly worth a visit: he draws on the most famous masterpieces in art history and reinterprets them in an absolutely up-to-date way.  As well as the visual language of undoubted impact, his attention to medium and preference for large scale artworks, I particularly like his aptitude to draw on the artistic repertoire of the past in an entirely natural way and provide a contemporary rendering of it, corroborating my belief that art is an uninterrupted flow of dialogue between the great artists of the past and those of the present day.”

The exhibition (opened last October and was interrupted several times by a series of decrees issued by the Prime Minister),  which brings Valdes back to Rome after twenty-five years of absence, consists of around seventy artworks -paintings and sculptures in wood, marble, bronze, alabaster, brass, steel, iron, some of which are monumental – from the artist’s studio and important private collections that recount Valdés’s creative career from the early nineteen-eighties (just after the end of his experience in Equipo Crónica) to date.

In compliance with the current regulations the exhibition space at Palazzo Cipolla will observe the following opening hours: Tuesdays to Fridays from 10:00 to 20:00, last entrance at 19:00. Saturdays and Bank Holidays entry by advanced online booking at
