teatro di mnemosine
Giulio Paolini, Bettina Della Casa
The Giancarlo and Danna Olgiati Collection coinciding with the inauguration of LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura is presenting a monographic exhibition entitled, “Mnemosine Theatre. GIULIO PAOLINI d’après WATTEAU” devoted to Italian artist Giulio Paolini (Genoa, 1940) The exhibition is part of series of initiatives devoted to the artists exposed in the Giancarlo and Danna Olgiati Collection. The idea for the project originated from one of the works in the collection, Mnemosine (les Charmes de la Vie/7), 1981-84, which was acquired in 2007 and shown at the Collezione Olgiati museum since its opening in 2012. It belongs to a cycle of six works entitled Mnemosine (les Charmes de la Vie, 1981-1990). In this exhibition, under the artist’s personal supervision, the cycle is reunited for the first time in Lugano.
