The exhibition dedicated to Eugenio Bolley at Museomontagna in Turin presents a selection of about 80 paintings, sculptures, drawings and lithographs, articulated around the themes dearest to the artist: the mountain, the study of the sign, the forest.
His works – within a constant dialogue with stones, skies, clouds and peaks – represent the delicate balance between man and nature, such as the series Arboreto selvatico (wild arboretum), image of a fragile environment that the artist invites us to rediscover and take care of. In the exhibition, some ready-made pieces created with objects from the rural and alpine world, and a nucleus of free pictorial digressions and ironic collages created during the artist’s stay in Japan and dedicated mainly to Mount Fujiyama.
The exhibition follows the publication of the volume Eugenio Bolley. Opere 1950-2018 published by Umberto Allemandi & C., with an introduction by Prof. Francesco Poli and texts by Alberto Sinigaglia, president of the Ordine dei giornalisti del Piemonte, and Andrea Maria Ludovici, art historian. During the period of the exhibition there will be didactic activities on reservation for children and on Sunday May 12 there will be Creatività alpina with Eugenio Bolley, a special appointment with free participation, dedicated to families.
The project has been realized with Reale Foundation and Dynamo Camp.
