Mostra de Chirico a Palazzo Reale di Milano

Mostra de Chirico Milano

MILANO | 25.09.19 - 19.01.20


The Exhibition

Opening on 25 September is the great exhibition devoted to George de Chirico (Volos, 1888 - Rome, 1978), which through some 100 masterpieces reconstructs the unrepeatable career of the Pictor Optimus.

The rooms in Palazzo Reale in Milan, almost 50 years since the solo exhibition of 1970, again host de Chirico's work in an extraordinary retrospective curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, promoted and produced by the City of Milan-Culture, Palazzo Reale, Marsilio and Electa, in collaboration with the Giorgio and Isa de Chirico Foundation.

An exhibition layout made up of original comparisons and unrepeatable juxtapositions that reveal the phantasmic world of one of the 20th century’s most complex artistic figures. The exhibition offers the key to a hermetic art with its roots in the Greece of de Chirico’s childhood, that matured in the Paris of the avant-gardes, gave rise to the Metaphysical art that bewitched the Surrealists, captivated Andy Warhol and finally spread confusion with its irreverent and ironic reinterpretations of the Baroque.

The substantial body of works on display comes from major international museums including the Tate Modern in London, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Centre Pompidou and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Galleria Nazionale di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (GNAM) in Rome, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, The Menil Collection in Houston and the MAC USP in São Paulo, Brazil. Numerous Milanese institutions are also taking part: the Museo del Novecento, the Casa Museo Boschi di Stefano, the Pinacoteca di Brera and Villa Necchi Campiglio.

Subdivided into eight rooms, the exhibition is organized by themes devised in keeping with unprecedented juxtapositions and original comparisons to create a chain of visual reactions that, as de Chirico wrote in 1918, pursue "the demon in all things [...] the eye in all things [because] / We are explorers ready to set out again".
