TIMELESS SHAPES BY ANDREA BENETTIposted by Andrea Benetti
Andrea Benetti's exhibition, entitled “Timeless shapes”, curated by Elisa Mazzagardi, will be set up in the exhibition halls of the Legislative Assembly of the Emilia Romagna Regional Council, from September 28, to October 12, 2021. With this exhibition, Benetti wants to highlight the prehistoric origin of abstract art, underlining how widespread the use of recurring symbols was in it, comparable to today's digital iconography. Andrea Benetti inspires his art to the prehistoric one, which already contained within itself the future pictorial currents, then taken up by man in the course of history and made his own starting from the last millennia, up to the 1900s. Picasso himself, on a visit to the famous Cantabrian caves, said: "After Altamira, everything is decadent."
