Le Stanze della Fotografia, the new exhibition and research centre, will open to the public inside the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice, with an extensive and exhaustive retrospective devoted to Ugo Mulas, among the most important figures in post-WWII international photography. More than 300 images, including 30 photographs never displayed before now, documents, books, publications and films, offer a glance that opens up to the different experiences faced by Ugo Mulas (Pozzolengo, 1928 – Milan, 1973).
The exhibition itinerary winds its way through 14 sections, examining all Mulas’ fields of interest. From theatre to fashion, with portraits of friends and personalities from literature, cinema and architecture photographed as “posing models”, from landscapes and cities to his experience with the Venice Biennale and with the artists of Pop Art.
On the occasion of the opening of the new Rooms of Photography, the venue will also host the exhibition Venezia alter mundus with photographs by Alessandra Chemollo.
