The L’Occhio in Gioco. Percezioni, impressioni e illusioni nell’arte dal Medioevo alla Contemporaneità exhibition at the Palazzo del Monte di Pietà in Padua.

Fondazione Cariparo and the University of Padua present an innovative exhibition that combines two dimensions: art and the psychology of perception.
The exhibition hosts 420 works from 125 artists, from Balla to Boccioni, Klee to Severini, Duchamp to Calder, Group N to Vasarely.

An exhibition that can deceive the eye set forth across a path of art and science, colour and movement. A path that speaks of the subtle difference witnessed over the centuries of what is true and what could be true, but is in fact, not.

Contemporary art critic, Luca Massimo Barbero is entrusted with the historical curation of the exhibition, while Guido Bartorelli, Giovanni Galfano, Andrea Bobbio and Massimo Grassi from the University of Padua focus on the psychology of perception. The exhibition includes selected works by Gruppo N, an artistic collaborative association founded in Padua in the 1960s. Padua, the city of Galileo, where the tradition of study and experimentation has ceased to find a place for the school psychology and perception since 1919. It is in Padua that the extraordinary innovative impact of researchers has moved past academics by stimulating its avant-garde cultural environment onto the international stage.

The exhibition, from September 24, 2022, to February 26, 2023 at the Palazzo del Monte di Pietà in Padua, is open ti the public from Monday to Friday (9 am-7 pm), Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 9 am to 8 pm.

Tickets are available online.

Free opening on the first Sundays of the month, as proposed by the Ministry of Culture for state museums.
