Women. Body and image between symbol and revolution


Women. Body and image between symbol and revolution. At the Galleria d’Arte Moderna a reflection on the female figure through artists who represented and celebrated women in the different artistic currents and cultural temperatures between the late nineteenth century, throughout the twentieth century and up to the present day.

About 100 works, including paintings, sculptures, graphics and photography, some of which have never been exhibited before or not exhibited for a long time, from the Capitoline contemporary art collections – Gallery of Modern Art and MACRO – to documentation of how the universe female has always been a favorite object of artistic attention, from an object to be admired, in the guise of angel or temptress, to a mysterious subject who questions his identity up to the new image born of the protest of the sixties.
