Sandro Chia

From to

Casa Rusca hosts a large retrospective dedicated to Sandro Chia (Florence, 1946), one of the most significant interpreters of contemporary artistic culture, whose production is known and appreciated throughout the world.

The exhibition is a unique opportunity to admire, for the first time in a Swiss museum, a careful selection of over 50 large paintings, made since 1978 until the latest works, one of the absolute protagonists of the Transavantgarde.

This is also the occasion for a reflection on the artistic current of the eighties, through the works of Chia and other exponents: Mimmo Paladino, Nicola De Maria, Francesco Clemente and Enzo Cucchi. A movement, that of the Transavantgarde, which shows a return, after several decades of supremacy of conceptual tendencies, to a painting marked and strong colors.
