Nicolas Party: Triptych @ Poldi Pezzoli Museum, Milan
If there was ever a contemporary artist that would fit with Classical art or antiquities, it would be Nicolas Party. His work fits into that canon so seemlessly. The abstractions and landscapes he paints, the faces and sculptures all have a sense of centuries old aesthetics. That is why his new show, Triptych, at the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan, is the perfect pairing of Party, putting his work next to
"masterpieces from the Poldi Pezzoli collection, opening up multiple perspectives that shed fresh light on the antique artworks as well as on the artist’s own practice."
This exhibition continues the uninterrupted dialogue of the museum with art, from past to present, from Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli’s taste to the aesthetics of a young, but already well-known contemporary artist as Nicolas Party. It is part of a series of exhibitions, started in 2011, displaying works by contemporary artists inspired by the museum’s masterpieces.
