The exhibition proposes for the first time a wide-ranging investigation and a precise reconstruction of the relationship between visual arts and feminist movement in Italy, identifying in 1978 the catalyst year of all energies in play (not only in Italy). The exhibition is realized thanks to the collaboration of Mart, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto and Frittelli arte contemporanea, and opened during the Milan Art Week, in conjunction with miart, International Modern and Contemporary Art Fair of Milan. Media partner and catalogue: Flash Art. The exhibition is sponsored by Dior.
The exhibition The Severed Language deals with the fragmentation of language aimed at re-create alternative imaginations and new relationships of meaning. Nanni Balestrini, Gianni Pettena and Gianni Emilio Simonetti have different poetic languages and practices, but since the sixties each has worked towards subverting language by taking phrases and words from newspapers, manuals, comics, institutions and adverts to transform them into bodies that are foreign to their original context.

26 October 2016 - opening event
FM Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea’s exhibition program continues with a second event, once again concerning an artistic scene that is less known and yet to be discovered. Despite the international prestige of some of its representatives, this is an almost submerged reality but one that represents an exceptional contribution to the history of art in the second half of the twentieth century.
FM Centre for Contemporary Art has invited Galleria Giorgio Persano to organize an exhibition in the temporary space of the centre from October to December 2016. The Turin-based gallery presents the exhibition Michele Zaza. Opere / Works 1970-2016, curated by Elena Re. This important exhibition runs through the highlights of the expressive research of Zaza, from the beginning up to the current production. The curatorial idea is in fact to emphasize the centrality of the artist in a debate that looks to the present time.
The Laura Bulian Gallery is pleased to announce the forthcoming exhibition The Degrees of Freedom by Ugo La Pietra, the artist's first solo exhibition at the gallery as its inaugural show of the new season in Milan. The exhibition brings together a series of works the artist created during the 70s – one of La Pietra's most innovative and productive decades – which are now attracting renewed interest both among the public at large and in the art world.
Curated by Marco Scotini in collaboration with Lorenzo Paini. The exhibition presents both a critical review and, at the same time, a widespread survey of the Italian artistic scene in the 1970s with works and historic documents aiming to investigate a great heterogeneity of artistic and editorial formats and which reveal, amongst this vast multitude of forms of collective statements, new linguistic devices and a plurality of subjectivities.
Curated by Monitor, P420, SpazioA.
Monitor, P420 and SpazioA join together for a new project: a unique event, three galleries, a choral show. In an approximately 800 square meters space located inside the FM Center for Contemporary Art (a new art center promoted by the Milanese Open Care), the show will present a tightened dialogue between artists of different generations. Among the artists presented: Eric Bainbridge, Franco Guerzoni, Benedikt Hipp, Nicola Samorì, Claudio Verna for Monitor; Luca Bertolo, Chiara Camoni, Francesco Carone, Giulia Cenci, Esther Klas, Piotr Lakomy for SpazioA; Riccardo Baruzzi, Irma Blank, Rodrigo Hernández, Paolo Icaro, Joachim Schmid, Alessandra Spranzi, Franco Vaccari for P420.
