Samples between art, music and noise from the Mart Collections
Curated by Nicoletta Boschiero and Duccio Dogheria
The exhibition examines the relationship between art and music in the 20th century, comparing specific historical periods. It begins with the Futurists' exploration of sound, from the manifestos of Russolo and Pratella to Depero’s onomalinguistic works. Starting from the futurist spark, the exhibition moves on to explore the noise music of the second half of the century, including Sound Poetry and experimental music.
The works of art on exhibit - from Veronesi to Chiari by way of Kandinsky’s watercolours and on to the contemporary artists Spanghero and Mazzonelli - dialogue with materials from the Mart Archivio del ’900: graphic works, documents, artists' books, phonograph records, posters, videos, and audio recordings.
