1968-1969

1968-1969

Tempera, collage and pencil write the history of those years, the history of a young artist who outlines his own personal language along with that of the Banda del Marameo, led by Aldo himself and his friends of the Academy. This company used to go around the centre of Milan and Crema joking and taunting passers-by and authorities (with the typical Italian teasing gesture of marameo). This activity is documented by Mat Levi’s pictures, by a fine issued by a policeman in Crema and by numerous articles of the time.

That is an ironic answer to the ‘68 youth protest, to the Pop Art and the Happening of those years. In addition to the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the ’68 revolutionary period, the exhibition will be held simultaneously with the great anthological exhibition dedicated to Aldo Splodi’s work La storia del mondo, at Fondazione Marconi in 15 Tadino street (fondzionemarconi.org) from 20th September to 10th November 2018. The exhibition has its roots in the great painting entitled Antologica representing the surreal and amazing tale of the whole artistic history of Aldo Spoldi from 1968 to these days.
