Castello di Rivoli 2020
English translation of the catalogue by Scriptum
Conceived for the monumental spaces of San Francesco Church, the exhibition E luce fu establishes a dialog between four major works by Giacomo Balla (Torino, 1871 – Roma, 1958), Lucio Fontana (Rosario di Santa Fe, 1899 – Varese, 1968), Olafur Eliasson (Copenaghen, 1967) and Renato Leotta (Turin, 1982). Each artist with their own specific vocabulary but linked by a common interest in light and its aesthetic, scientific, technological, and social implications to the others.
E luce fu is part of the collaboration between Fondazione CRC and Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea. It aims to promote cultural engagement in the Region of Cuneo and to appreciate internationally renowned artists’ works presented by the Museum.
