The exhibition offers a summary of the artist’s whole career from his earliest works until today. The selection of the works on view includes both the most representative historical works from the beginning of Pistoletto’s artistic activity (1960) to the most recent (2017). Each of these works contains its own story and its own modernity in a space-time continuum that does not allow for splitting or sudden fractures. It begins with a series of self-portraits on canvas of his youthful period, where the artist asks himself about the search for his own dimension and own space. The artist proposes to configure the scene that opens on the future, once again leaving open the “triple dynamic” flow that inevitably includes the past, the present and the future.
