The garden of art

Works, collection


March 27—July 24, 2022

curated by di Stefano Collicelli Cagol



The garden of art. Work, collections present a selection of works created by artists of different generations, from Italy and abroad. The works come from some of the country's private collections and from the Centro Pecci collection to emphasize the Institution's mission to raise awareness of 20th and 21st century art. The exhibition includes recent works linked to the act of collecting and gathering stories, thoughts and images. 

The title reflect the idea of the Centre ad a garden: both places are focus on the care and restoration of those who live there and visit. The works were selected with the wish to create a surprising experience providing contrasting emotions and new perspective. Artis is an essential element for the life od a community and responds to a need to come face to face with unexpected forms and imagery, which we turn to in order to orient ourselves in the complexity of the world.
