Enrico Castellani. Variazioni sul metodo
This large volume titled Variazioni sul metodo, edited by Bruno Corà and promoted by Sace, accompanied Enrico Castellani’s monographic exhibition held at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow from 2 December 2005 to 15 January 2006 which inaugurated the museum’s new Pavilion of Contemporary Art. Here the artist exhibited more than thirty works – relief canvases, sculptures and installations – which covered Castellani’s methodological-artistic career. The volume published in Italian, English and Russian is enriched by an introductory essay by Bruno Corà, a dialogue between Corà and Gillo Dorfles and with the republication of a text by the latter of 1991 (revised) titled Quarant’anni con l’opera di Enrico Castellani. A considerable part of the volume contains the photographs of the works on exhibit, an accurate biography with the artist’s one-man and group exhibitions, monographs treating his work, publications of a general kind and a selection of B & W photographs of the exhibition’s inauguration.
