From 5 July to 24 September Giancarlo Vitali’s first anthological exhibit presents a critical reinterpretation of 70 years of his art: from the early works of the 1940s esteemed by Carrà€, up to his last and unrevealed production. Together with his paintings from the 1980s and 1990s, extolled by Giovanni Testori, the exhibit displays a vast selection of never-before-seen finished works, engravings and drawings.

Time Out is the first major exhibition of Giancarlo Vitali's work organized by the city of Milan. Curated by his son Velasco Vitali, an artist in his own right, the event is spread over different institutional venues to document a unique artistic trajectory in terms of development, geographical location and recognition. The survey offered of some seventy years of painting encompasses the early works of the 1940s, praised by Carlo Carrà€, those of the 80s and 90s, admired by Giovanni Testori, and the most recent and previously unexhibited work.

Giancarlo Vitali-Time Out is a journey that starts from the exhibition of over two hundred works in Palazzo Reale and involves the city as a whole with three supporting events held in the Sforza Castle, the Natural History Museum and the Manzoni House to offer a complete overview of the artist's career.

At the exhibition site at Palazzo Reale, the artist's presence is witnessed in a short film about 20 minutes, shot with the artist in his studio in Bellano. An art documentary on Giancarlo Vitali, made in March 2017 by Francesco Clerici and produced by ArchiViVitali.

The exhibition trail begins on the ground floor of Palazzo Reale with a bookshop/reading room specifically designed by Remembrance and open to exhibit visitors “Giancarlo Vitali. Time Out” and “Agnetti. A Cent’anni da adesso. "

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog published by Skira.

The project and the outfits are edited by Studio C14; Special arrangements are signed by Alexander Bellman and Romeo Sozzi.
