From 6th October until 13th January, the MAR - Ravenna Art museum celebrates and ideally connects with the centennial of the end of World War I through the exhibition ?War is over - ART AND CONFLICTS between myth and contemporaneity, offering an itinerary that reflects on conflicts, not at a strictly historical level, but in a wider sense - artistic and poetic, personal and collective, aesthetic and ethic.

As a matter of fact, it is not a simple historic-documentary exhibition, but rather an itinerary that is able to suggest multiple readings about the war. After all, Art has always dealt with the theme of conflict and the works that have been selected intend to show the eternal tension that has always existed between individual creativity and the urgency of dealing with a so pervasive and present theme.

Pablo Picasso

The setting, which has been designed and created with the co-working of the Studio Azzurro (Milano) direction, helps to make the exhibition itinerary even more suggestive and articulate, developing it through artworks and pictures of great impact: from the monumental tombstone of Guidarello Guidarelli, which is the symbol of the MAR collections, to Picasso and Rubens and artists like Abramovic, Beuys, Boetti, Burri, Christo, De Chirico, Fabre, Kiefer, Kentridge, Kounellis, Rauschenberg, Warhol - just to mention a few.

It is a project curated by Angela Tecce - historian and art critic, director of Castel Sant’Elmo and then of the Museum Centre of Calabria and the new urban peripheries director of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage Directorate-general for Art and Architecture - and Maurizio Tarantino, the MAR director.
