Palazzo Albergati - Art Experience

From Friday, July 3rd every Friday and Saturday + for the whole last week
extended opening hours till midnight


In Bologna the new exhibit venue Palazzo Albergati-Art Experience opens to the public on the occasion of an important retrospective exhibition dedicated to the Dutch visionary artist and engraver Maurits Cornelis Escher.
Following the great success in Rome, Escher exhibition - curated by Marco Bussagli and Federico Giudiceandrea, and organized by Arthemisia Group with the sponsorship of Comune di Bologna and in collaboration with Escher Foundation (www.mcescher.com), is arriving in Bologna from March 12th to July 19th.
The wonderful fantasy world of an artist who was capable more than anyone else of transforming visual ambiguity into an ambiguity of meaning, charming with his drawings and lithographs which were employed for many different purposes - i.e. famous album covers, gift boxes, stamps, greeting cards and tiles, and then became real masterpieces.

Over 150 works on show, including some Escher’s famous masterpieces such as Hand with Reflecting Sphere (M.C. Escher Foundation), Day and Night (Giudiceandrea Collection), Moebius Strip II (Giudiceandrea Collection), House of Stairs (Giudiceandrea Collection), Another World II (Giudiceandrea Collection), Bond of Union (Giudiceandrea Collection), the Emblemata series, and a whole section devoted to the “escher-mania” which tells of the artist’s influence on everyday life.
