On The Spiritual Matter Of Art

Bartolomeo Pietromarchi Ed.

Idea Code 19640

The catalogue for an eponymous exhibition at MAXXI in Rome curated by Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, this book investigates one of art history’s most prominent themes: spirituality. The exhibition aims to restore a path towards spirituality that initially begins with a reflection on the Self, and further on the theme of identity and its contradictions specific to the human being. It includes not only work by around 20 contemporary artists, including Hassan Khan, Elisabetta di Maggio, Jimmie Durham, and Shirin Neshat, but also a number of archaeological artefacts, for the purpose of regaining a sacred and spiritual time that has its roots in the geographical area from which Rome emerged.
