UniCredit’s Past Present Future Exhibition Reaches Last Stop
This November 6, the exhibition Past Present Future: Highlights from the UniCredit Collection opens at the Yapı Kredi Cultural Center in Istanbul. This event will mark the third stop of the show, which began roughly a year ago in Vienna before going on tour to Verona. The upcoming exhibition will focus on Istanbul's role as the 2010 European Capital of Culture.
Curated by Walter Guadagnini, Chairman of the Scientific Board of UniCredit & Art, the show displays works spanning four centuries of European history and establishes a dialogue among different cultures, languages and artistic techniques. Taken as a whole, these works reflect the diversity of the Group's collection, as well as our company's history and identity.
Each of the seven sections of the exhibition captures both the dialogue and classical themes of art history, including nature and the representation of the self, the body and objects. In addition to engaging with both the past and the present, this dialogue explores man's historical relationship to his world through natural, interior, human, urban and social landscapes.
Building upon a selection of roughly 80 works from the Group's collection, the show also incorporates pieces from Turkey. In total, eight works from the Yapı Kredi Collection will appear in the exhibition.
For its stop in Istanbul, Past Present Future will have a catalogue published in English and Turkish. This catalogue, which was edited by Yapı Kredi Cultural Activities, Arts and Publishing Inc., will present all the exhibition's works in color.
The Past Present Future exhibition will be held from November 6, 2010 to January 7, 2011.
