Between Art&Fashion;. Photographs from the collection of Carla Sozzani

12th january 2019 - 10th march 2019

The exhibition “Between Art & Fashion - Photographs from the collection of Carla Sozzani”, will be presented in Naples at Villa Pignatelli for the first time in Italy, after being exhibited in Paris in 2016 at the Galerie Azzedine Alaïa, the Museum of Fine Arts in Le Locle, Switzerland in 2017, and the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin in 2018. The exposition proposed through the Polo Museale della Campania under the direction of Anna Imponente and Incontri Internazionali d'Arte, is being hosted at the Pignatelli Museum under the direction of Denise Pagano. The Pignatelli Museum is one of the rarest museum-houses in Naples. It has been called the Villa Pignatelli-House of Photography since 2010. An open and beautifully appointed space to host exhibitions, events, and talks, the museum fosters discussion on the themes of photography as a cultural expression through the re-discovery of lesser known aspects in Italian history, knowledge of contemporary photographers, and trends in today's photography, as well as the approach to modern communications media. The exhibition features one hundred and sixty works by eighty-seven photographers, including Berenice Abbott, Richard Avedon, Lillian Bassman, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Horst P. Horst, William Klein, Don McCullin, László Moholy-Nagy, Sarah Moon, Daido Moriyama, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Man Ray, Leni Riefenstahl, Paolo Roversi, Alfred Stieglitz and Francesca Woodman, all arranged in alphabetical order by the curator.
