Maurizio Nannucci, Gianni Pettena e Gianni Melotti | Histories. Contemporary Art Archives and Collection in Florence
The exhibition, curated by Museion in collaboration with Museo Marino Marini of Florence, aimes at combining the biographical aspect of Maurizio Nannucci's research with the historical aspect of some artistic practices. Top Hundred is a path through the art of the last five decades, from which emerge the richness and innovative energy of various languages: multiples, artist books and records, posters, audioworks, video and ephemera. Senzacornice has collaborated to the catalogue.
The documentary, curated by Anna Mazzanti and Senzacornice, narrates the Tuscany artistic culture during the Nineteenth century trough the voices of Enrico Crispolti, Lara-Vinca Masini and Carlo Sisi, and with audio-visual sources preserved in the Mediateca Regionale of Fondazione Sistema Toscana. The video is promoted by Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze, Regione Toscana and Consulta delle Fondazioni di origine bancaria della Toscana, Piccoli Grandi Musei, in the framework of the project Toscana ’900. Musei e percorsi d’arte.
The videos record the conference Una città in prospettiva. Arte a Firenze tra passato recente e futuro prossimo. During the event young scholars have analyzed artistic experiences that, from the Seventies to today, have contributed to create the contemporary experimental imagine of Florence. At the end of the conference was organized a round table with the representatives of the most relevant Florentine realities actually involved in the promotion of contemporary art.
