IC Speaker SeriesCerri, The Art of Two Generations1/13 [email protected] pm
January 13 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Curator Bianca Friundi will discuss the current exhibition at the Museo Italo Americano featuring the Milanese father-son duo Giancarlo and Giovanni Cerri, “The Art of Two Generations.”
This exhibition is an ideal opportunity for a comparison between them, quite different artists in their themes and expressive language. Giancarlo started out as a figurative artist focusing mostly on the theme of nature. His painting progressively evolved into the abstract. Giovanni, of the next generation, is instead attracted to a narrative form, focusing on the urban landscape, and the interpretation of industrial archaeology.
“CERRI: The Art of Two Generations” is on view at the Museo Italo Americano through February 20, 2022. For more information on this exhibit, see the Museo’s website here.
