Zanini and Garbari.
In the Sign of the 20th Century

Casa d'Arte Futurista Depero
10 June 2017 / 08 October 2017
Casa Depero presents an exhibition dedicated to the work of two Trentino artists who interpreted the artistic languages of the early 20th century with great originality.
 

Linked by the same origins and their participation in a number of important cultural debates, Gigiotti Zanini (1893-1963) and Tullio Garbari (1892-1931) distinguished themselves for their original contributions to the Italian art of the early 20th century.
Presented together for the first time at the 1913 Palazzo Galasso exhibition in Trento, both established strong ties to the Florentine group of La Voce and later, in Milan, to some of the most representative artists of the ‘return to the origins’ movement during the post-WWI reconstruction era.

The two-man exhibition offers a broad overview of the work of Gigiotti Zanini, including 20 works for which Mart can thank the fundamental contribution of Giorgio Zanini and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto, executed between 1914 and 1958: from Ballerina, testament to his youthful adherence to Futurist poetics, to the works of the post-WWI period, which document his adoption of a Primitivist language, and concluding with the more mature works and lyrical landscapes after the Second World War.
Further enriching this section is a selection of materials from the Archivio del ’900 and a group of rarely exhibited woodcuts, close in style and theme to Tullio Garbari. From Garbari, the exhibition features works on paper in watercolor, gouache and tempera, painted between 1914 and 1924, in which subjects dear to the artist - scenes of the countryside and domestic life - are immersed in a characteristically timeless dimension, along with his portraits of women, from which emerges all the power of Garbari’s concise and cultured language, based on the lessons of the masters of the past.
