Barock opens at Museum MADRE, Naples

December 17, 2009 by Ellie

BAROCK – Art, Science, Faith and Technology in the Contemporary Age at Museum MADRE, runs until 5 April 2010.

This exhibition, curated by Eduardo Cicelyn and Mario Codognato, explores the similitudes between the cultural themes that are representative of the beginning of the new century and those that made the visual imagination of the Baroque Age so powerful and grandiose. Barock investigates issues that permeated the XVII century and are still distinctive of our time, showing how the typical themes of the Baroque culture of the 17th century have been revived by contemporary artists. Included in the group show of 28 are Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Cindy Sherman. To read more, visit the  MADRE site.

Thank you to Rachel Howard for her photographs. All images are copyright the artists.
