The exhibition Drawing Everyday: A Visual Diary by Stefano Chiassai, curated by Valentina Gensini and organized by MUS.E, is the result of a collaboration with ADI Tuscany. It presents a selection of unpublished drawings created by the artist Stefano Chiassai between 2022 and 2023, accompanied by some pieces from the years 2020-2021.
Drawings, fabrics, exquisite tapestries, and design objects stage words, geometries, patterns, and figures, reactivating a collective and shared memory that encompasses the major events from 2021 to 2023 through a site-specific project featuring new materials designed specifically for the Laura Orvieto, Ketty La Rocca halls of MAD, and the Semiottagono of the Complesso delle Murate.
This captivating fusion of languages reflects Chiassai’s eclectic creativity and materializes a chromatic triumph in the dialogue between the historical past of the city of Florence, closely linked to the artistic design of tapestries, and contemporary art.
At the heart of the work is the daily practice of pen drawing that allows no room for mistakes or revisions, a systematic discipline and method of reinterpreting global events as they arrive on our desks and into our homes through journalistic writing in newspapers. Chiassai reinterprets everything with ironic and popular tones, translating the collective perception of the present history.
The exhibition opens on Thursday, September 21st at 5:30 PM.
