PLASTIC DAYS – Materials and Design @Museo Ettore Fico – Torino – February 2015

The exhibition Plastic Days, curated by Cecilia Cecchini and Marco Petroni, arises from the analysis and the selection of about 600 items from Fondazione Plart’s collection, and it consists in an original narration of  the various families of plastic materials. The show narrates about the transformations occurred during the last 150 years, revealing the innermost nature of modernity and the mutations that marked the domestic and cultural landscape in which we are currently immersed.

The Contemporary Alchemies section of the exhibition will display works developed by Officina Corpuscoli (Maurizio Montalti) and Studio Formafantasma (Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin), which had been commissioned by Fondazione Plart.

The exhibition path is completed by interviews with: Andrea Branzi, Donato D’Urbino, Paolo Lomazzi, Alessandro Mendini, Maurizio Montalti (Officina Corpuscoli), Andrea Trimarchi e Simone Farresin (Studio Formafantasma), Gaetano Pesce and Maria Pia Incutti, collector and president of Fondazione Plart.

Catalogue’s contributions by: Alba Cappellieri, Laura Cherubini, Stefano Catucci, Gianluigi Ricuperati, Thea van Oosten and Anna Laganà.
