After the solo exhibitions by Giuseppe Penone and Robert Morris, the Mart exhibition season continues with an ambitious project dedicated to the work of the italian sculptor Eliseo Mattiacci (1940). Passing the baton among artists of the same generation, the project continues the exploration of sources and forms in contemporary sculpture.

The exhibition expresses a dialogue between the artist and the Mart interiors: a selection of works—most of them large format—retraces the career of the sculptor in the spacious museum galleries.

The powerfully evocative retrospective presents works that have rarely been exhibited before, such as Locomotiva (Locomotive) (1964), works presented at the 1972 Venice Biennale, and sculptures whose size and complexity make them nearly impossible to install in an ordinary gallery, such as Motociclista (Motorcyclist) (1981), La mia idea del cosmo (My Idea of the Cosmos) (2001) and Piattaforma esplorativa (Exploration Platform) (2008).

The exhibition is curated by Gianfranco Maraniello, director of Mart.
