This exhibition at Villa Lontana launches a new collaborative exchange between the Fondazione Dino ed Ernesta Santarelli and contemporary art. Through creating a series of intimate juxtapositions, we hope to draw attention to the performative and sculptural elements that are inherent in classical statuary and architectural fragments, to the potential of being experienced within the context and concerns of contemporary practice.Download Press Release
