Take a break from exploring Rome’s antiquity and head over to the MACRO’s Roma Pop City 60-70. This exhibit features Italian contemporary art from the 1960’s, which was inspired by the Eternal City’s rapid urbanization and evolution. Forget about canvas and paint – these works are concocted with mediums that were unconventional for the era, including metal, concrete, iron, aluminium, and even everyday cleaning products. Pop City traces how the traditional monochrome image of previous decades was replaced by texture, an innovative layering of unusual materials, and three-dimensional pieces.
The exhibit features over 100 works from 21 artists (Franco Angeli, Nanni Balestrini, Gianfranco Baruchello, Umberto Bignardi, Mario Ceroli, Claudio Cintoli, Tano Festa, Giosetta Fioroni, Jannis Kounellis, Sergio Lombardo, Francesco Lo Savio, Renato Mambor, Gino Marotta, Titina Maselli, Fabio Mauri, Pino Pascali, Luca Maria Patella, Mimmo Rotella, Mario Schifano, Cesare Tacchi, Giuseppe Uncini), and is composed of sculptures, paintings, photographs, installations, and films.
