21 February 2017 - 18 June 2017

The exhibition KEITH HARING. About art at Palazzo Reale in Milan gives an overview of the career and works of the American artist and social activist whose visual language has become globally recognised. On display are 110 works from public and private collections from Europe, America and Asia, many of them colossal, and some unpublished or never exhibited before in Italy.
The works are presented in the context of the art that inspired Keith Haring to develop his signature style: from classical archaeology, pre-Columbian art, Pacific masks and creations by Native Americans, to the masters of the 20th century, such as Jackson Pollock, Jean Dubuffet and Paul Klee.

Milan celebrates Arnaldo Pomodoro’s 90 years with a network of exhibition projects which has at its heart a retrospective curated by Ada Masoero in collaboration with the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, hosted in the Hall of the Caryatids in the Royal Palace.
The exhibition recounts the artistic career of Arnaldo Pomodoro, from 1955 to today, through a selection of his most significant works in one of the most important places, be it ancient or modern, of Milan.
In the Royal Square, for the first time in its entirety, the sculptural complex The Pietrarubbia Group will be set up. This is environmental work devised in six elements realised as a progressive aggregation of work in progress which was started in 1975 and completed in 2013.

Third dialogue “Caravaggio.
Readings and Re-readings”

 10 November 2016 - 5 February 2017

From November 10th to February 5th the Pinacoteca di Brera will be hosting the third exceptional dialogue between one of the museum’s in-house masterpieces and other “guest” works. The star of this edition is one of the Pinacoteca’s most celebrated paintings, the Supper at Emmaus by the Lombard master Michelangelo Merisi, better known as Caravaggio.
For the occasion, and to tie in with the renovation of the layout in seven of the Pinacoteca’s rooms, the painting is to be hung in a new scenographic and much less out-of-the-way position than previously, in an effort to higlight the outstanding chiaroscuro effects of this picture which the artist painted at one of the most dramatic moments in is life, while he was fleeing Rome in 1606 after slaying Ranuccio Tomassoni in a brawl on 28 May of that year. The painting can be dated to some time during the four months following the event, when Caravaggio was staying on the Colonna estates, and it was probably painted at Paliano. Its brushwork displays such immediacy and such rapidity that the underlying sizing shows through in certain areas, and some of the details even have an “unfinished” or summarily sketched appearance to them. The painter also adopts certain solutions that were to feature with ever greater regularity in his work after he fled Rome, displaying an increasingly painful and deeply-felt sense of being and existing, and of what it really meant to “paint”.
“Caravaggio. New Readings and Re-readings”, curated by Nicola Spinosa, will be offering visitors a chance to compare a number of paintings of the same subject which have never been displayed together before. But at the same time, it sets out to be a workshop and a source of stimulus for exchange and further study of this artist, whose career continues to pose crucially problematic questions to art historians while at the same time stirring a huge amount of interest with the general public. So we are looking at a comparison designed both to promote scholarship and to encourage broader appreciation by submitting a number of attribution issues regarding the works on display to the attention of scholars and visitors alike. The Brera Supper at Emmaus will be interacting with five paintings whose attribution to Caravaggio has been given a mixed reception or been questioned, or which have been attributed to other painters who were Caravaggio’s contemporaries.

Given that attribution plays a crucial role in art history, the best way to verify an attribution is to place the paintings side by side in a dialogue offering both art historians and the general public a unique opportunity to do just that,” says James Bradburne, director of the Pinacoteca di Brera and Biblioteca Braidense, adding: “A museum does not take any responsibility for attributions supplied by lenders, be they from the public or the private sector. The journey from speculation to certainty is filled with debates among the experts a long time before a work of art ever enters a museum; and even then, further research can change an attribution at any time”.

“Caravaggio. Readings and Re-readings” brings to a close a year that has seen a fully-fledged Copernican revolution for the Pinacoteca, which continues with this Dialogue to develop the vision of a “living museum” first launched by Soprintendente Franco Russoli in the 1970s.
The Dialogue will tie in with the renovation of seven rooms in the Pinacoteca (bringing the total number of rooms renovated in 2016 to twenty) as part of a project in stages that will eventually involve the entire museum circuit over a period of three years.
In the words of James Bradburne, “museum installations have to change in order to continually ‘replay’ the collection, in the same way as Verdi is replayed at the Scala every year. A museum that no longer believes in its collection has lost its way”.
