Jenny Saville: A cyclical rhythm of emergent forms
An exhibition curated by Sergio Risaliti, director of the Museo Novecento, Florence, pairs artworks by Jenny Saville with artists of the Italian Renaissance. On view across that city at the Museo Novecento, the Museo di Palazzo Vecchio, the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, the Museo degli Innocenti, and the Museo di Casa Buonarroti through February 20, 2022, the presentation features paintings and drawings by Saville from the 1990s through to work made especially for the occasion. Here, Risaliti reflects on the resonances and reverberations brought about by these pairings.
Art historian and curator Sergio Risaliti speaks with Roberto Peregalli and Laura Sartori Rimini, the duo behind the interior design firm Studio Peregalli, about their philosophical approach to design, the cinematic quality of their rooms, and the publication of their latest monograph, Grand Tour: The Worldly Projects of Studio Peregalli.
