Starting from May 4, 2018, the Museo Ettore Fico in Turin will be hosting an extensive retrospective dedicated to Duane Michals, one of the greatest photographers of our time, a great innovator and pioneer in the language of photography who stands out among the most distinguished names in the American avant-garde.
An artist poised between photography and poetry, Michals started, at the beginning of the 1960s, a new approach to photography which no longer claimed to record documentary evidence of a fait accompli or to face the metaphysical aspects of life. Instead, Michals' works relate to his philosophy of life: “When you look at my photographs, you are looking at my thoughts”—in these words lies the key to understanding Duane Michals' body of work.
The exhibition itinerary is divided into thematic sections, which aim to introduce the visitor to the different expressive modalities devised by Michals, as well as to the various series dealing with specific topics that the author has covered throughout his career.
Thanks to the “MEF + MEF Outside” ticket, you can also visit the “Paolo Monti. 1935–1982 Photographs” exhibition, a retrospective dedicated to one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. Monti was the founder of the “La Gondola,” a club in Venice which made a name for itself on the international stage as an avant-garde movement; starting from 1953, when he moved to Milan, he consolidated his critical and experimental attitude, becoming one of the most well-known authors on an international level. The author always supported his intensive professional activity with a significant experimental and artistic production, in which he challenged himself with photograms, chemigrams, and various experiments involving colored materials.
