Adriana Bisi Fabbri and the Network of Arts at the Museo del Novecento
#Exhibitions

Art, journalism, avant-garde. There’s a bit of everything in the artistic career of painter and caricaturist Adriana Bisi Fabbri, a stand-out figure in the complex artistic scene of which she was a part. A self-taught artist with an iron will, who was considered an accomplished artist, despite the fact that both recognition and education were largely denied to women, is at the centre of an exhibition at the Museo del Novecento, which offers a new look at the work and life of this artist from Ferrara and her husband Giannetto Bisi. He encouraged her in her artistic pursuits during their lives together, along with a brimming network of relations that the couple created with the protagonists of two decades of Italian art during the last century. Archival sources offer a view of an artistic panorama pulsing with life, rife with projects, initiatives and movements of which Adriana and Giannetto were an integral part, as can be seen in the more than two-hundred works on display, including paintings, drawings and graphic works. Furthermore, this voyage from Ferrara to Bergamo and Milan, brings visitors into contact with artists the likes of Umberto Boccioni, Cesare Laurenti, Ugo Valeri, as well the avant-garde groups of Turin, Florence, Venice and Rome.
