October 20 – November 26
A chronicle in images of the second half of the 20th century and the first decade of the new century
Casa della Memoria of the Municipality of Milan proposes “Breaking News”, an exhibition by Tullio Vietri curated by Fabio Fornasari. Museums, theaters, cinemas… they are not just places of leisure and entertainment, but also environments where thoughts, subjects and knowledge relevant to civic life are proposed. Is it possible to consider a painter’s studio as an equal to a place of civic engagement? A possible answer can be found in Tullio Vietri’s research and pieces. He has subjected to precise analysis the current social, political and economic dynamics, pointing out, in visual form, their effects on the contemporary man’s existence. On display are his Breaking News, daily news that Vietri transformed into a pictorial message that spurs into reflection and involvement: from massacres to global pollution, from criticism of Italian politics to international politics.
