Item description for Shadow of Reason: Exploring the Spiritual in European by Maria de Corral, Umberto Eco, Romano Prodi & Gianni Vertimo...
Inspired by a work by Edvard Munch, Shadow of Reason presents over 100 works by the leading protagonists of modern contemporary art, from Edvard Munch to Rachel Whiteread, as well as Francis Bacon, Joseph Beuys, Christian Boltanski, Tony Cragg, Girogo de Chirico, Tacita Dean, Marcel Duchamp, Marlene Dumas, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Giacometti, Gilbert & George, Anselm Kiefer, Yves Klein, Wolfgang Laib, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Piet Mondrian, Sigmar Polke, Sean Scully, Susana Solano, Antoni Tapies, and Gilberto Zorio, along with several others. The aim of this exhibit and its accompanying catalogue is to explore a specific European identity in the artistic landscape of the twentieth century. To this end, the works covered are organized thematically as opposed to historically, breaking out of the rigid parameters of traditional museum exhibits*and thereby subverting the continued rule of reason in the name of poetry and transcendence. The accompanying volume features essays*by authors like Umberto Eco*that oppose the role of traditional rationalist discourse in art.
