Jorge Janiszewski, Funeral de Josè Manuel Parada, militante comunista degollado Santiago, 1985, Galleria civica di Modena

Until the next 25th May

Given the great success among both critics and the public of the exhibitions ‘Fotogiornalismo e reportage’ and ‘L’Informale in Italia’, they have both been extended until the next 25th May.

Organised and co-produced by the Galleria Civica di Modena and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena, curated by Silvia Ferrari and Marco Pierini, the shows are displayed respectively in the Main Hall and the Upper Rooms of Palazzo Santa Margherita. The former presents a major selection of works from the photography collection, with a project based on photo-journalism and reportage, mostly from Franco Fontana archive group; the latter, features more than 80 drawings and engravings by the greatest exponents of the Italian informal movement over a time span stretching from the mid-‘40s up to the end of the ‘60s, chosen from the Gallery’s own heritage.

Starting from 24th April, to coincide with the inauguration of the upcoming project entitled ‘Nei molti mondi. Videodramma a spettatore unico’ (‘In the Many Worlds. Single-Spectator Video Drama) by Guido Acampa and Gabriele Frasca, the exhibition opening hours will change: they will now be from Wednesdays to Fridays from 10.30am to 1pm, and from 4pm to 7.30pm. On Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, the gallery spaces will remain open from 10.30am to 7.30pm non-stop. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Entrance is free.
