UniCredit, after the first international exhibition PastPresentFuture and the German exhibition Things are Queer, unveils once again its important corporate art collection with "People and the City", on show from March 2 until April 29, 2012 in Poland at the Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun.
This concept was shown for the first time in Moscow, at the Red Hall in the WINZAVOD Centre of Contemporary Art, at the end of last year.
The exhibition features more than 70 artworks from UniCredit's noteworthy art collection and it is a journey through the works of many important artists since the start of the 20th century.
The itinerary highlights the relationship between individuals and the urban fabric, with an analysis of urban space as a reflection of modern living. The journey starts off from an aerial view in which the city is captured in its entirety, before coming down to street level, where the buildings and the multicultural human flows become the protagonists, right down to the point of exploring people's intimate domestic lives and dreaming up imaginary cities in which to live on a more human scale.
The project has been designed and curated by Dobrila Denegri, Artistic Director of the Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun together with Walter Guadagnini, Chairman of the UniCredit for Art Scientific Committee - which also includes Luca Massimo Barbero, Lorand Hegyi and Angelika Nollert.
The UniCredit Art Collection, from which all the works on show come from, is made up of over 60,000 works - paintings, sculptures, installations, videos and photographs - which reflect the Group's identity, as well as symbolising the Bank's international commitment to art.
