The Mart is dedicating an exhibition to Giuliano Vangi. A painter and sculptor, his poetics focus on the human figure, which he interprets through a powerful and contemporary language without ever forgetting the legacy of the great sculptural tradition. Vangi's research embraces the whole human condition: the sense of loneliness, bewilderment, the anxieties of the present. On display are more than fifty sculptures and about twenty drawings, including one spanning a 36-meter-long wall that leads visitors into the exhibition space, whose setup is based on a design by Mario Botta.
In addition to contemporary architecture, at Mart Vangi interacts also with some Gothic and Renaissance artists. Twelve antique works are on display, including three drawings by Michelangelo, the “Bust of Niccolò da Uzzano” by Donatello, an early 14th-century Crucifix by Giovanni Pisano, but also sculptures by Jacopo della Quercia, Tino di Camaino, Agostino di Giovanni and Francesco di Valdambrino.
