November 24, 2022 opens to the public at XNL Piacenza. Center for contemporary art, cinema, theater and music, under the artistic direction of Paola Nicolin, the exhibition
Sul vestito lei ha un corpo. Note su Sonia Delaunay
When: Nov. 24, 2022 to April 16, 2023, Friday -Sunday from 10.30 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.
Where: Piacenza, Via Santa Franca
The exhibition project moves from the invitation addressed to two contemporary artists – Meris Angioletti (Bergamo, 1977, lives and works in Paris) and Ulla von Brandenburg (Karlsruhe 1974, lives and works in Paris) – to reflect on the figure of the Russian-French artist Sonia Delaunay, who was born in Odessa (Ukraine) in 1885 and died in Paris in 1979. The reflection focuses particularly on the adventure of the Atelier Simultané, active from 1923 to 1934, an extension of the house-studio in Paris on Boulevard Malesherbes, where Sonia Delaunay lived with her husband Robert.
An exhibition like a dress to wear. A reflection on color and sound where color becomes number and its relationships create rhythms. An exhibition as a workshop of total creativity in which painting, sculpture, poetry, music, film and performance coexist, simultaneously dressing and cladding our bodies in motion.
The Palazzo XNL Piacenza has two exhibition spaces for the visual arts. The hall on the second floor hosts the exhibition “Come un limone lunare” by artist Francesco Simeti (Palermo, 1968) until Jan. 29, 2023.
Workshops for children and schools, talks, conversations and lectures will be scheduled periodically. Updated program available on the official website.
The building is located on Via Santa Franca, opposite the Conservatorio Nicolini on the corner of Via San Siro, bordering the Galleria d’Arte Moderna Ricci Oddi, entities with which it has created a dialogue project.
