ON PAPER – International Printmaking Exhibition

Casa Falconieri, an internationally active center for experimentation and research in the promotion and valorization of printmaking arts, has chosen the MACC museum, in agreement with director Efisio Carbone and the MACC Foundation, as the venue for the international exhibition ON PAPER, bringing works and artists to Calasetta from October to January for a symposium on contemporary engraving that extends and enriches the museum’s exhibition season even during months that are notoriously more difficult to reach a wide audience. The exhibition is a moment of reflection for the museum dedicated to the main “medium” of its permanent collection: paper. It is also a tribute to the engraving practices of which Ermanno Leinardi, founder of the MACC museum and donor of the collection, was an undisputed master, obtaining important national and international recognitions.

Among the great historical names present, we recall Achille Pace, Mimmo Paladino, Maria Lai, Alik Cavaliere, Enrico Castellani, Giuseppe Uncini, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Enrico Baj, Guido Strazza, Emilio Vedova, Renzo Piano; in addition to the precious nuclei of works by the great Spanish masters Antoni Tapies and Eduardo Chillida. There is also a section dedicated to Sardinian artists, including Gabriella Locci, now one of the most established masters in the field of printmaking internationally, guiding and supporting this practice for the young generations in Sardinia.
