Contemporary art and design from Italy have earned international acclaim. To celebrate the Year of Italy in China, MoCA Shanghai is co-organising a fascinating, multi-faceted and cross-disciplinary exhibition, bringing the heart of Italy into the centre of Shanghai. Curated by the world-renowned Achille Bonito Oliva, the exhibition is an exquisite sampling of expressions in different fields. These expressions are in dialogue with each other and create a complex set of relationships. The aesthetic nature and multiple meanings behind these relationships reinforce the independent nature of Italian art. Each field, by conversing with other fields, become further strengthened in their uniqueness. Artistic personalities speak the common language of art, but spiced with different accents, giving evidence to the vitality and the ever renewing identity of Italian culture.
