  • The project

    Promoted by the municipality of Milan Culture, produced by Palazzo Reale with the Studio Nespolo and supported by the Bracco Foundation, the exhibition is curated by Maurizio Ferraris and is structured as a voyage, not necessarily in chronological order, of eclecticism and research that lays claim to an autonomous, original and popular role for the artist who is for this reason “a dissenting voice”.

    The exhibition is structured in several chapters that highlight aspects of the polyhedric work of Nespolo, starting from works of the 1960s presented by Pierre Restany at the Milan Galleria Schwarz, through to relationships with commissions as a homage to the attitudes of the historical avant-garde. Never completely tied to a thread, the production of the artist has an accentuated ironic and transgressive stamp, a personal sense of fun that will always be a kind of trademark.

    About 200 works dedicated to key themes of the artist’s research such as Numbers and Letters, drawings, collages, large-scale works or those made with precious materials together with the artist’s books, plus a section dedicated to experimental cinema, a language Nespolo adopted right from its beginnings.
    Bracco Foundation, in line with its commitment to develop the artistic and cultural heritage, pay special attention to this artist who has made his multidisciplinary nature a fundamental aspect of his poetry.
