Black Secret Wall

Black Secret Wall

una visione privata

Louise Nevelson


The exhibition aims to delineate a pathway towards the understanding of the poetics of Louise Nevelson (Kiev, 1899 – New York, 1988) with a refined selection of collages dating between the 1950s and the 1980s together with a massive black wooden piece that carries with it the history of who created it, who sold it and who later welcomed and cherished it for almost half a century. 

The show is an historical narration beginning from the artist’s most intimate concept, which generated the collages as a constant practice of spontaneous, self-aware and indispensable expression of her creative process over the course of her entire career, for the production of more physically sculptural works such as the colossal Black Secret Wall as well, the culmination of this visual journey. 

A quiet and private viewing scanned by the rhythm of the calculated proportional harmony that is rooted in the seventeenth-century architecture of the Villa Ca’Amata and in the organic perfection of its surrounding nature, while discovering one of the greatest artists of the XX century.
