Burri Ravenna Gold & Contemporary Mosaic - Guided tour to the MAR on the occasion of the Biennial of Contemporary Mosaic

Let us accompany you to discover the exhibitions, organized at the MAR - Museo d'Arte della Città, on the occasion of the VIII edition of the Biennial of Contemporary Mosaic.

BURRIRAVENNAORO, temporary exhibition curated by Bruno Corà, aims to retrace the intense relationship that Alberto Burri had with Ravenna.

The artist of material paintings comes, in his latest productions, to elaborate works inspired by the culture and history of the mosaic city; through the contrast of black and gold colors, shady areas and light, Burri embodies and transfigures the topicality of a city in which the splendor of the past has gradually intertwined with productive and industrial developments of the present.
Thanks to this exhibition you will have the opportunity to admire nearly 100 works that earned Burri the National Prize of the Lincei for Graphic Art.

The guided tour will continue with the Collection of Contemporary Mosaics, recently redesigned, to retrace the development that the mosaic technique has had from the second decade of the twentieth century.

The pivotal moment of the renewal of the mosaic art is the 1959 Exhibition of Modern Mosaics, whose works represent the core of the collection and on which the entire collection has been developed.

At the end of the tour, participants can continue independently to visit the exhibitions "The Physical Memory of Matter"; "Ettore Sottsass - The Dead City" and the Municipal Art Gallery.
