MAN RAI. LE SEDUZIONI DELLA FOTOGRAFIA

CAMERA tribute to the great master Man Ray with the exhibition featuring around two hundred photographs produced from the 1920s right up to his death (1976), all dedicated to a specific subject: the woman, primary source of inspiration of all his poetics, here in photographic form. From 17 October to 19 January.

The exhibition presents some of the images that wrote the history of 20th-century photography and which became part of the collective imagination thanks to Man Ray is ability to reinvent not only the photographic language, but also the representation of the body and the face and even genres such as the nude and the portrait through his rayographs, solarisations and double exposures. The female body is subjected to a continuous metamorphosis of shapes and meanings, becoming from time to time an abstract form, object of seduction, a classic memory, a realist portrait, in an extraordinary playful and highly refined reflection on the time and forms of representation, through photography and not only.
