Almanac 70
Architecture and Abstraction

 
Galleria Civica Trento
11 February 2017 / 14 May 2017
The Galleria Civica presents a new research and exhibition project exploring the connections between architecture and abstract art in Trento in the 1970s.
 
A

lmanac 70 documents the art and architecture of a social and cultural period marked by a strongly charged climate of innovation. In those crucial years of change, Trentino transformed from a rural territory into an industrial and service society. Trento became a bona fide laboratory for experimentation: artists and architects exchanged opinions and suggestions, communicated idioms and projects.
Through a selection of archival materials and images by Portuguese architectural photographer Fernando Guerra, one of the internationally most acclaimed in his field, the exhibition retraces the history of some of the most significant buildings designed by the architects Marcello Armani, Luciano Perini and Gian Leo Salvotti, providing a novel visual juxtaposition with the works of artists Carlo Andreani, Italo Bressan, Mauro Cappelletti, Silvio Cattani, Bruno Colorio, Giancarlo Gardumi, Annamaria Gelmi, Diego Mazzonelli, Romano Perusini, Aldo Schmid and Luigi Senesi.
The exhibition will be complemented by the publication of a catalogue, a series of public encounters with the protagonists of the period in question, and an “Architecture Stroll”.
