Roma Pop City 60-70 At Macro

Roma Pop City 60/70, Macro
Renato Mambor Colosseo e farfalla, 1966

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.
