Fantastic Utopias

April 20th – September 27th, 2020
curated by Ilaria Bonacossa
in collaboration with Galleria Continua

Artists: Jonathas De Andrade, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Carlos Garaicoa, Antony Gormley, Shilpa Gupta, Ilya e Emilia Kabakov, Zhanna Kadyrova, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Ornaghi e Prestinari, Kiki Smith, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Ai Wei Wei, Chen Zhen.


In the spaces of Ala Scaligera, the artworks of 15 international artists give rise in their diversity to unexpected and perhaps even magical images and objects, both seductive and frightening at the same time, able to take us to alternative universes far removed from verosimilitude.

To imagine an alternative reality is the first step towards reaching it

In this exhibition, curated by Ilaria Bonacossa in collaboration with Galleria Continua, the protagonist is the fantastic. Relegated to the world of childhood ever since the 19th century, it has become the means to break with conventions and imagine what seems impossible and unknown.

The visit is included in the entrance ticket to the Rocca di Angera.
