“Yes, the colour, as it shifts, occupies the space and we enter.
The frame that delimited the space is no longer there.
Taking it away, the colour takes on the space and invades the space.
And when this happens, it’s miraculous.”
–Ettore Spalletti

More than 70 works, three museums and a single title for three exhibitions born out of the desire to present the variety, complexity and profundity of the work of Ettore Spalletti, master of Italian contemporary art: this is Un Giorno Così Bianco, Così Bianco (A Day so White, so White).

The exhibition opens to the public at MAXXI with a project characterised by large environmental installations conceived specifically for the occasion and a series of works created over the last few years.

For the exhibition at the MAXXI Ettore Spalletti has appropriated a space within the Museum to construct another itinerary from his most recent works. The arrangement is musical, comprised of chromatic chords, pauses and silences that link the pieces into a single composition: each work emits its own individual sound that when experienced from the centre of the gallery join to create a harmonious symphony.
