Ferrara Arte - Current Exhibitions in Ferrara

Nino Migliori. Una ricerca senza fine
February 17 - June 3, 2024 - Ferrara, Castello Estense

Curated by Denis Curti, the exhibition retraces the "never-ending quest" undertaken by the Bolognese photographer from 1948 to the present day. It spans from neorealistic shots capturing the essence of Italy in the 1950s to the series on Walls and Torn Posters, where Migliori demonstrates an affinity with European informal painting. The exhibition further explores conceptual experiments, investigating overlooked or unexpected aspects of photographic language, such as material reactions, the conscious role of chance, the influence of time, and the physical and gestural presence of the artist. It also includes works highlighting a specific interest in visual communication as a whole.

Over 100 works are on display to acquaint audiences with Nino Migliori through his photography—an output rich in values and content related to art, experimentation, and play.

March 23 - July 21, 2024 - Ferrara, Palazzo dei Diamanti

From March 23 to July 21, 2024, the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara will be the stage for the works of Escher, a brilliant and visionary artist, always celebrated by mathematicians and recently rediscovered by the general public.

Born in 1898 in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, Maurits Cornelis Escher has captivated the hearts of millions of visitors with his extraordinary ability to transport them into imaginative and seemingly impossible worlds.

The creations of the Dutch master, who lived in Italy between the two World Wars, are a fusion of themes and inspirations: from geometric theorems to mathematical insights, from philosophical reflections to logical paradoxes.

His unmistakable works, which have influenced design and advertising, pose a challenge to perception and constitute a unique phenomenon in the history of art. This extraordinary exhibition will provide an unprecedented opportunity to delve into Escher's creative universe.

Mirabilia Estensi
23 marzo - 21 luglio 2024 - Ferrara, Palazzo dei Diamanti

In North-Central Italy between the 14th and 15th centuries, objects made of bone, horn, and inlaid wood, including pastiglia decorated caskets, became widespread as emblems of the Renaissance craftsmanship in Ferrara under Borso d'Este. These artifacts, often created to celebrate wedding unions, were crafted using sophisticated techniques and involved masters like Cosmè Tura. Characterized by "pastiglia" decorations, a mixture of plaster, glue, and marble powder, these caskets contained precious items and symbolized the passion for antiquity that animated the courts of the time. Becoming part of the Wunderkammer, collections aimed at amazing with a variety of rare objects, these caskets reflected the Renaissance's broad interest in arts, sciences, and collecting, attempting to encapsulate the world in a single room.

Ferrara Arte - The Foundation

In Ferrara, important art events mean Ferrara Arte, a foundation established with the aim of holding international exhibitions in the splendid setting of the Palazzo dei Diamanti in collaboration with the Art Museums Service of the Municipality of Ferrara.
The foundation's first initiative dates back to 1991-92 when, together with the Musée Marmottan, an anthological exhibition of Giovanni Boldini was organised in Paris, followed in Ferrara by the exhibition 'Claude Monet and his friends'.

Over the years, Ferrara Arte has forged a valuable network of connections and collaborations with the world's greatest museums - from the Metropolitan in New York to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, from the Museo del Prado to the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, from the Tate in London to the Bozar in Brussels and the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart - making the Palazzo dei Diamanti one of the best known and most respected excellences abroad.
