The concept of ‘light’ has been a founding element in the history of art, as well as a means for vision and for the transmission of colors in space, and since the 1960s it has become an integral part of the expressive language of art. The journey of light has very remote sources, it has crossed myth and metaphysics, theology and art, arriving secularized in our daily lives, trapped in our control and our operations.
Becoming the material of our objects and the object of our work, it asks for a different perception of the world, a different bearing of the body, a much more liquid boundary between inside and outside.
The exhibition brings together a group of artists of various nationalities and generations:
Alberto Garutti, Alfredo Jaar, Ann Veronica Janssens, Joseph Kosuth, Daniele Milvio, Kaspar Müller, Michel Verjux whose works presented in Casa Masaccio focus on perceptual phenomena and the idea that light itself can be both subject and matter of art.
The exhibition will be open until December 12, 2021 during the following days and hours:
Tuesday – Friday: 15.00 – 19.00
Saturday, Sunday and holidays: 10.00 – 13.00; 15.00 – 19.00
