The hen’s gaze is oblique, transverse, direct, frontal and lateral, but only synthesis surrounds the object of understanding and meaning. The avant-gardes that characterised the last century, influencing and flowing like waves of meaning into the present, are reread by the gaze of musicians, photographers, actors, dancers, cooks and children, to become universal again in the scope and effects intended by their programmatic intentions. The manualistic path is only a pretext; an opportunity to delve into what remains to be remembered. Alongside are the voices of those who reread those poems, living them through the eyes of their art, discipline and profession. Their versions have naturally selected those avant-gardes that still live on in artistic creation today.

In this intersection of planes, a further dimension is added, constructed by the gaze of Alessandro Sanna, who in turn dialogues with the description of the artistic movement and parallel suggestions through his refined and ironic brush. A transversal hypertextuality destined to open up further gazes for divergent readings, which will choose, follow traces or, like the hen, make synthesis.

    Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla confirm their expressive power and the lucidity of their intellectual provocation. Present for the first time with a ‘solo exhibition’ specially created for the MAXXI spaces, they have already been the protagonists of incursions that have left their mark on us. Lightness and complexity have always attracted the artistic and human partnership of the American couple, of Cuban origin, who blossomed in Florence and have long since transplanted to Puerto Rico. And it is precisely to the Caribbean island, hit by terrifying hurricanes in the summer of 2017, that Blackout is dedicated: a collection of poetic and biting works. There is a denunciation of suffering produced by its history of colonial exploitation, marginality, subjection to military servitude and endemic poverty that have multiplied, to the extreme, the damage caused by the climate disaster.

    So & Calzadilla, expressing the Puerto Rico forced to survive without electricity, seem to suggest that we are without light, without a plan for a sustainable future, especially at our latitudes. The book, catalogue of the exhibition of the same name in Rome from 16 February to 30 May 2018 curated by Hou Hanru and Anne Palopoli, in addition to photographs of the works on display, contains two plates by Marino Neri drawn for the occasion and essays by T.J. Demos, Sara Nadal Melsió and Frances Negròn Muntaner.

    Cesare Leonardi. L’Architettura della Vita / The Architecture of Life narrates the eclectic and interdisciplinary character of Cesare Leonardi’s research. Busy in a continuous and passionate investigation, far from notoriety despite the fact that some of his works are found in the most important museums of the world and are published on international magazines, Cesare Leonardi is the example of a life dedicated to architecture and planning. Through a flow of images, interspersed with thematic essays, his production is described: a kinetic system that has passed seamlessly from design to photography, from photography to drawing, from drawing to architecture, from architecture to sculpture.

    The book comes out on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name, organized by the Galleria Civica of Modena, from September 15, 2017 to February 4, 2018. A tribute from the city of Modena to the work of Cesare Leonardi over the course of four decades. The publication would not have been possible without the decisive contribution of the Cesare Leonardi Architect Archive, in particular thanks to the efforts of Andrea Cavani and Giulio Orsini, researchers at the Archive and curators of the catalog.

    More than 500 images including photographs, drawings, sketches and drafts show the work of Cesare Leonardi throughout his life, accompanied by texts written specifically by Veronica Bastai, Stefano Bulgarelli, Andrea Cavani, Andrea Costa, Daniele De Luigi, Eugenio Gazzola, Giancarlo Martinelli, Lucia Miodini, Giulio Orsini, Jessica Pagani, Francesco Samassa and Paola Viganò.

    Guido Scarabottolo, one of Italy’s best-known and best-loved illustrators, presents in this volume a never-before-seen aspect of his artistic production: not drawings, but a series of thirty-two photographs that the author took during a journey of discovery through Iran, where he was invited on the occasion of the Tehran Book Fair. Deeply fascinated by the places and people he encountered while visiting cities, villages and the desert, Scarabottolo felt the urge to fix his impressions with an instrument that would allow him to capture them quickly. In spite of the unusual medium, all his sensitivity as a man and artist emerges from these shots. He is also capable of casting his gaze on unexpected subjects that manage to render different aspects of the complexity of Persian culture with great simplicity and effectiveness.

    Scarabottolo, graphic designer and illustrator, proves with this work that he is an artist who is not afraid to momentarily abandon his favourite expressive technique and let himself be guided only by his own gaze and curiosity. Edited by Melania Gazzotti and Giulia Giazzoli, the volume is enriched by a critical text by Andrea Pinotti, lecturer in aesthetics, writer and expert in visual culture.
