“Random Effect” shows the research of Ugo La Pietra on the theme of the relationship between individual and city

Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition will be open until 24 September in Todi, Italy.

Until 24 September 2023 in Todi, in the Sala delle Pietre at Palazzo del Popolo, the exhibition curated by Marco Tonelli on Ugo La Pietra artworks, “Effetto randomico” (“Random Effect”) will be open to visitors for free. The result of artistic research on the theme of living in the city with an attitude “unbalanced and random”, which the artist carries on from the late sixties, is a path of about forty paintings, graphics, and sculptures, including drawings, collages, photographs, and ceramics.

The title of the exhibition, an attempt to reopen and analyze the relationship between the individual and the urban context, is inspired by the words with which Gillo Dorfles defined the work of La Pietra. “I have created works that have almost always tried to highlight the breaking effect of the models imposed by society,” said the artist. “And so my works, already at the end of the sixties, were accompanied by the theory of the ‘Imbalanced System’, a method that I have developed over many years, through the careful reading of reality, to provide tools able to increase people choice, and make them able to intervene directly in the process of environmental configuration, enriching perceptual and cognitive processes, enhancing degrees of behavioral and mental freedom”.
