Fabio Sironi PARADE A Show Without A Plot

Locality: Milan Region: Lombardy
from: 22 February 2024
from: 9 March 2024

The exhibition presents a selection of works by the Milanese artist and illustrator as part of the PARADE project. The paintings and drawings range in different themes and techniques, drawing inspiration in their variety from an almost twentieth-century avant-garde parade. As Matteo Collura observed: “A theater of memory, whose title, Parade, already says that it is a show without a plot. Horses, coffee pots, fish, masks, fossils, shoes, paintings, photomontages, collages, photo retouching done on the computer tell the story like so many tireless storytellers - sometimes, and if we're lucky, with the notes of the author's saxophone as the soundtrack. The illustrations that Fabio Sironi creates for newspapers and books deserve a separate discussion; those created as a commentary on literary masterpieces such as Pinocchio and The Hound of the Baskervilles are unsurpassed. During the inauguration the artist will perform a performance of the "Teatro Fracking" cycle with musical intervention and participation of the public present.
