May 2018, Rome
With 37 works by 25 artists from the collections of the Barberini Corsini National Gallery and the MAXXI, the exhibition brings together ancient and contemporary art on the theme of portraits and self-portraits.
From Caravaggio to Giulio Paolini, from Raffaello to Richard Serra, from Bernini to Yan Pei Ming, from Piero di Cosimo to Kiki Smith, from Luigi Ontani to Pietro da Cortona, the works tell the themes of temporality, the representation of power, eroticism, intimacy and the exotic.
