Moscow Museum of Modern Art opens first solo exhibition to be held in Russia of the Italian artist Giosetta Fioroni
Giosetta Fioroni, From here to eternity, 1969. 70 x 100 cm. Pencils, enamels and aluminum on paper.

MOSCOW.- The Moscow Museum of Modern Art presents «The 60’s in Rome», the first solo exhibition to be held in Russia of the Italian artist Giosetta Fioroni, one of the shining lights of pop art. Focusing on Fioroni’s «pop» phase of the 1960s, the exhibition also traces the origins of the artist’s style in her abstract painting from the late 1950s and its evolution in her politically-inspired works from the late 1960s, early 1970s.

Following the logic of the artist’s career the exhibition moves on from her celebrated pieces to those witnessing the artist broadening the range of her tools and themes. On the wave of the social radicalisation of the turbulent 1960s and 1970s Fioroni turned to the themes of politics and socialisation by introducing in her works photographs from her childhood which was marked by the Fascist regime. At the same time she made forays into different forms of art experimenting with theatre, cinema, and installation. The exhibition in MMOMA features an installation titled «The Optical Peephole» in which the artist in a metaphorical way reflects on the theme of the boundaries between the political and private. Reproduced here for the first time since the 1960s, the performance will be held every weekend and feature Italian actress Irene Muskara. In this performance as well as in her paintings, by providing a woman’s perspective, Fioroni offered an alternative to the picture of the world as rendered by male artists that was pervasive in pop art.

Falconeri and MMOMA have launched a collaborative program Falconeri Art Weekend. As part of the program Falconeri invites the public to join guided tours, organized with the support of the brand, and visit the exhibition free of charge. Tours, six sessions per day, will run every Sunday during the period of the exhibition.

As a result of the cultural cooperation between Russia and Italy for this project, the exhibition is a continuation of MMOMA’s program dedicated to introducing Moscow audiences to art from around the world. «The 60’s in Rome» is a special guest of the Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair and is held as part of the 7 Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary Art.
