This event has ended.

On the occasion of “Italy in Japan 2009”, the Italian Cultural Institute will present a solo exhibition by Sandro Chia (born in Florence in 1946), an internationally renowned artist and one of the most prominent members of the “Transavanguardia” movement.

“Romantic Bucolic”, which opens on November 25th (Wed), features a selection of works produced this year especially for Japan: 50 drawings on paper realized using a variety of techniques that come with a specially designed frame, an oil canvas (2002) and a video installation by Chia.

Sandro Chia presents to visitors a series of works dedicated to the relationship between art and country life, inspired by the fascinating landscape of Tuscany, where the Maestro has lived and worked since the 90’s as both an artist and a wine producer at the Castello Romitorio (Montalcino), which he transformed into a winery.

Sandro Chia has participated in several editions of the Venice Biennale, including this year’s edition. He has exhibited his works at some of the most important museums all around the world: Stedelijk Museum- Amsterdam (1983), Metropolitan Museum – New York (1984), National Galerie - Berlin (1984 & 1992), Museum of Modern Art - Paris (1984), Museum of Modern Art – Mexico City (1989), Villa Medici - Rome (1995), Palazzo Reale – Milan (1997), Boca Raton Museum of Art - Florida (1997 & 2007), Palazzo Pitti and Museum of Archeology - Florence (2002).

“Romantic Bucolic” will be presented also in Kyoto at the Galleria Aube (University of Art & Design) from January 20th to February 6th, 2010.
