Ties|Legami. Pietro Consagra and Ugo Mulas opened 29 June at The Italian Cultural Institute in London’s Belgrave Square. It was made possible by the help, guidance, and expertise of both Archivio Pietro Consagra’s Scientific Committee and Archivio Ugo Mulas.
On the opening night, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, world renowned curator and Director of the Serpentine Galleries, gave a presentation and led a walkthrough of the exhibition, noting that it is a, “really urgent exhibition, because it brings Consagra to London, to memory.” For Obrist, “amnesia is somewhere very much at the core of the digital age, and that’s why exhibitions are so necessary because they contribute to [the] protest against forgetting… this exhibition is incredibly important to bring back to immediate memory, [through the eyes of Ugo Mulas], Pietro Consagra and the visionary work he has been doing.”
