The landscape in art: between reality and abstraction


6 > 23 September


Various timings


Pinacoteca Carrara and GAMeC - Bergamo Bassa

Collaboration with the more important artistic institutions of the city continues. The aim, as always, is to point out original approaches in bringing together art and landscape, reality and abstraction, creativity and tradition. What is proposed this year is a ‘walk’ through the masterpieces of the Accademia Carrara and GAMeC.

The tour begins at the Accademia Carrara, leading the participants to discover the evolution of landscape in art: from a background of religious or mythological scenes, through to its autonomous role as the protagonist of the painting.

The story continues at the GAMeC, where the collection tells of the historical avant-gardes and the post- avant-gardes and their interpretation of the landscape, developing its metaphysical, futuristic and surreal potentials, through to informal results, aiming at the psychological-emotional or irrational re-elaboration of the known reality.
