CONVERSATIONS

From 30 September 2011 to 15 January 2012

Photography from Bank of America Merryll Lynch

CONVERSATIONS

Conversations present a selection of photographs from the Bank of America Merryll Lynch Collection, which is considered one of the most diverse corporate collections in the world. The exhibition, which was originally displayed at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, treats photography as a unique and authoritative means of expression that has earned its rightful place in the arts spectrum.

Displayed in the Novecento’s ground floor galleries, this show aims to highlight a selection of photographs from the bank’s collection by placing them in “conversation” with one other, following various theme-based, historic and formal combinations. The juxtaposed categories range from “Looking at Art” to the “Power of the Portrait”, to “Abstraction and Experimentation” and “Surrealism”, amongst many others. The display traces the history of photography and its evolution. The works shown are by past and present masters, such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Eugène Atget, Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Edward Weston, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand, William Eggleston, Cindy Sherman, Ed Rusha, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Candida Hofer, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Struth. Conversations offers the opportunity to see a selection of masterworks displayed in new juxtapositions, while celebrating and strengthening a history of collaboration linkink Italiy and America.
