Ellipse Foundation Contemporary Art Collection
30 April–18 December 2011
Almost 100 years after the advent of the historical avant-garde, the exhibition The Last First Decade proposes revisiting it through the art of the first decade of the 21st century. The idea, however, is not to trace a genealogical line linking the avant-garde to the art of today or to suppose a direct and immediate influence. Unlike the historiographer’s approach, which struggles to free itself from its discursive rigidity, the exhibition format is based on the polysemy of the artworks.
