Non-Aligned Modernity

Three new shows opening at the FM Centre for Contemporary Art, new territory of the mind and spirit

Three new shows are launching today at the FM Centre for Contemporary Art, the Milan centre dedicated to art and collecting located at the Frigoriferi Milanesi.

The first show, “Non-Aligned Modernity” displays over 700 works by 120 artists from Eastern European countries from the 1950s to the 1980s. The works come from the collection of Marinko Sudac and represent the largest, most complete collection of Eastern European art from the Cold War period – paintings, sculptures, photographs, vinyl, films, videos, graphic works, and artist’s books.

The general public may not be very familiar with this art scene, but for all practical purposes it represents a significant contribution to art history. Here are only a few of the numerous artists represented – Marina Abramovic’, Milan Adamciak, Karel Adamus and Vladmir Boudnik. Marinko Sudac, founder of the Museum of the Avant-Garde platform, promotes research into avant-garde practices which were rejected due to socio-political reasons until the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Two other shows are also opening concurrently in the centre. Laura Bulian Gallery presents a solo exhibition of Ugo La Pietra, entitled “The Degrees of Freedom“, focusing on the artist’s works from the 1970s. This survey examines his strong attention to the suburbs and “non-places” considered interesting for developing the imagination.

Meanwhile, the Galleria Giorgio Persano is presenting Michele Zaza, exhibiting photographic works and videos that attempt to examine the upending of everyday meaning, a world in which the individual can express himself through imagination and the possibilities of renewal.

FM: a new possible territory of the mind and spirit.
