exhibition curated by Francesca Agostinelli and Vania Gransinigh

The third edition of the Contrappunto exhibition is enriched by the relevant artistic contribution of Liliana Moro, who accepted the invitation and extended the dialogue to a national level. Working with her were Matteo Attruia, Roberto Cantarutti, Elisa Vladilo and Debora Vrizzi. The "contrappunto" (counterpoint) of the five artists of today takes place respectively with Carl Andre, Arturo Martini, Luciano Fabro, Antonio Corpora and Antonio Piatti.
The project, curated by Francesca Agostinelli and Vania Gransinigh - head of the Casa Cavazzini Museum, reaches its eagerly awaited third edition in the idea of a continuous renewal of spaces, of artists, of exchange with the different languages of the contemporary that through a plurality of events will participate in an overall workshop on the present.
The musical derivation of the title Contrappunto wants to convey the will of several voices to be together, simultaneously, and these voices are the contemporary creativity of the artists who confront the historical authors present in the collections of the Casa Cavazzini Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.
The exhibition, in fact, created a confrontation between today's artists and the Museum's heritage, in particular the deposits: an investigation of the museum 'body', which includes the wealth of works temporarily hidden from the public gaze. The artists were thus able to investigate, get to know and create a link with the museum's works.
After the interaction through a workshop presenting the project together with Liliana Moro, the exhibition now on display in the rooms of Casa Cavazzini was realised. It illustrates an overview of the relationship of present-day artists with the heritage kept in the civic collections, which as a whole represents the cultural unconscious on which much of what we are today is based.
The project is scientifically supported by the catalogue that documents the different stages of the Contrappunto 03 journey, thanks to Ulderica da Pozzo's photographic gaze, capable of restoring unrepeatable shots: from the visit to the deposits to the workshop with the presentation of the projects by Liliana Moro and the artists, from the setting up phase to the exhibition realised in the Museum spaces.
