Il volto della Metafisica

(The Changing Face of Metaphysical Art)

Curated by V. Noel-Johnson, The Doge's Apartments, Palazzo Ducale, Genoa, 30 March - 1 September 2019. Accompanying catalogue published by SKIRA Editore, Milan, 2019 (separate Italian and English editions). Exhibition organised by ViDI in collaboration with Fondazione Giorgio e Isa de Chirico.

Organised to coincide with the centenary (1919) of de Chirico's so called stylistic volte-face, the exhibition's revisionist stance seeks  to illustrate how the artist's post-1918 work constitutes a sophisticated evolution of his understanding of metaphysics, despite radical changes in style, technique, subject matter and palette. It features c. 100 works executed throughout de Chirico's career (1910s - 1970s) lent by numerous public and private collections including La Galleria Nazionale (Rome), MART (Rovereto), Galleria d'Arte Moderna (Florence) and Banca d'Italia (Rome).
