  • Giulia Andreani – “L’improduttiva” – From October 29 to March 10, 2024 – Collezione Maramotti 

For her first institutional solo exhibition in Italy, Giulia Andreani presents a project composed of a coherent body of new paintings and watercolors. Embracing the technique of photomontage, Andreani juxtaposes elements taken from real images, often from archives, and imaginative details. The subjects emerge on the canvas through a single color, Payne’s grey. The conceptual starting point for “L’improduttiva” was the iconographic materials found in some Reggio Emilia archives, through which Andreani investigated the city’s historical and socio-political context, focusing on the notions of confinement and imprisonment, closely linked to the history of women.

Visits to the permanent collection by reservation are limited to a maximum of 25 visitors at a time. 
Free admission. 

Start times for visits to the permanent collection: Thursdays and Fridays at 3:00 PM; Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 AM and 3:00 PM. 

Access to temporary exhibitions is free on Thursdays and Fridays from 2:30 PM to 6:30 PM and Saturdays from 10:30 AM to 6:30 PM.
