Piet Mondrian. From figuration to abstraction
MUDEC, Museo delle Culture di Milano
November 24, 2021 – March 27, 2022

The exhibition will bring to Milan for the first time a project entirely dedicated to this Dutch artist and to the evolutionary artistic process which took him from figuration to abstraction, from the tradition of the Dutch landscape to the development of his unique style, which made him recognizable and universally famous.

The exhibition was realized thanks to the collaboration of the Kunstmuseum den Haag, holder of the world’s most important collection of Mondrian’s works and which lent sixty works, chosen among the works of Mondrian and of other artists which best represent the Hague school.

The exhibition will also display other masterpieces coming from important museums and private collections. Following the concept of the director of the Kunstmusem Benno Tempel and under the curatorship of Daniel Koep, Head of Exhibitions, and of Doede Hardeman, Head of Collections, the itinerary will come to life and unfold through various thematic sections. The theme on which the comparison will take place between the first “figurative” period and the “abstract” period is the landscape.

Visitors will be offered a visual and therefore immediate interpretation of the artist’s stylistic evolution. A section of the exhibition will be dedicated to “De Stijl” (or “Neoplasticism”), a movement that arose in the Netherlands in 1917, on the initiative of Mondrian himself and of Theo van Doesburg and still active on the threshold of the Thirties, which innovated art, architecture and design.

    Art | May 17, 2024

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
