The Madre museum presents the retrospective and mid-career solo exhibitions of Vettor Pisani and Pádraig Timoney.
Eroica/Antieroica. Una retrospettiva is the first and most comprehensive retrospective ever devoted to Vettor Pisani (Bari, 1934–Rome, 2011). With his first solo exhibition in 1970 at the Galleria La Salita in Rome (Maschile, Femminile e Androgino – Incesto e Cannibalismo in Marcel Duchamp), and then with his participation in some of the most important exhibitions of the 1970s and 1980s, including Vitalità del negativo nell’arte italiana 1960–70 (1970), Documenta V (1972), Contemporanea (1973–1974), International Performance Week at the Galleria d’Arte Moderna di Bologna (1977) and his eight participations in the Venice Biennale from 1972 to 1995, Pisani gradually emerged as one of the most important exponents of artistic research in Italy, due to his distinctive narrative-based practice, as well as one of the most personal and visionary authors of his generation.
