“Beauty will save the world”, Fyodor Dostoevsky professed this thought in The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov, and after more than a century, it seems to be the only sentence that reassured the art world after the terroristic attacks in Paris of November 13th. For a strange coincidence in the same evening at the Marino Marini Museum in Florence took place the RED performance by Thomas De Falco, the artist who through the wrapping technique aimed to create “a magical net of roots which let flow the desire of inner harmony”. I only wished those roots could have been more deep to arrive to France.
On November 13th at 7.30 pm, the artist Thomas De Falco will invade the Marino Marini Museum in Florence with RED, his last performance and textile installation curated by Laura Cherubini, in collaboration with EQUA (Camilla Morabito).
Until August 30th the exhibition “Tamara de Lempicka”, produced by 24 ORE Cultura and Arthemisia Group, turns the Palazzo Chiablese in Turin into a documentary catalog in which photographs, newspaper clippings, magazine covers, drawings, films and paintings, unmask every secret of the great painter. Room by room, the curator Gioia Mori analyzes episodes and themes that led Tamara de Lempicka to be who she was and still is: a female model of strength and independence; an intimately and emotionally fragile woman; a not very caring mother, but haunted by the presence of the daughter; a glamour icon in every age in which she lived; but above all, a worldwide recognized artist and perhaps the sole really able to capture the zeitgeist in her works.
