Idea Code 17246

Published on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition of work by Piero Gilardi at MAXXI, curated by Hou Hanru, Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, and Marco Scotini, this catalogue highlights the artist’s skilled legacy and his long history of civil commitment. Since the outset of his career in the 1960s, Gilardi has remained closely connected to the issues of inequality, injustice, and the disasters of our civilisation, and continuously engaged in seeking expressions that are an alternative to the mainstream, in order to promote ties between artistic practice and socio-political reality. His “Nature-Carpets” not only recall the beauty of vanishing nature, but also offer comfort in the Anthropocene.
