Dadamaino, an avant-garde female artist
#Exhibitions

Not far from Malpensa airport, in Gallarate, there is a museum that presents a very interesting art exhibition. It's the MA*GA with the retrospective dedicated to one of the female protagonists of the avant-garde of the second half of the twentieth century: Dadamaino. The exhibition retraces the main stages of Dadamaino's (Emilia Maino) career, from 1959 to her death, presented through 80 works distributed along the entire route of the Museum. “Dada” was an avant-garde artist closely linked to Piero Manzoni and Enrico Castellani and who actively contributed to the Milanese artistic avant-garde movements of the 1950s with her geometric-perceptive research. The exhibition at MA*GA also presents one of the best-known works by the Milanese artist The movement of things, a roll of polyester that carries out Dadamaino's "writing" on a thirty-metre surface, presented in its first version at the Biennale of Venice in 1990.
