MARKUS VALLAZZA AND DANTE. THE ARTWORK IN THE ARTWORK

29 May 2021 - 7 November 2021

Markus Vallazza (1936-2019) is one of the most outstanding masters and important personalities with regard to South Tyrolean art. With his extensive oeuvre, he has established a reputation far beyond the borders of the country and received major awards. His exhibitions have been shown all over Europe. Numerous publications have appeared about him and by him.

 

On the occasion of the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri's death, the exhibition at the Hofburg takes a new look at the artist Markus Vallazza and his intensive, year-long examination of Dante's Divina Commedia.

OSWALD KOLLREIDER (1922-2017) - SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS

27 November 2021 - 9 January 2022

The exhibition focuses on the approach to the sacred work of the painter and graphic artist Oswald Kollreider, who was born in East Tyrol. The intense, deeply spiritual approach to religious themes experiences in the expressive, figuratively designed pictorial works the extraordinary dynamic that is artistically reflective and internalised, determining the path to the accompanying self-knowledge. On the occasion of the artist's 100th birthday, the exhibition will focus on the aspect of this individual, intimate sacral rootedness of the painter. The artist's creative work is also generated by an unbroken passion for travel, which demands immersion in unknown social and cultural settings throughout his life.
It is precisely these insights that allow us to observe that in Kollreider's paintings, familiar sacred contents not infrequently gain the character of a self-reflection and can be seen as a symbol of his inner self.

DAVIDE PERBELLINI - MADRE DI DIO

 

4 December 2021 - 9 January 2022

Madre di Dio is the name of a series of photographic works that form the first part of a series divided into three sections. In the series Madre di Dio, Davide Perbellini documents Catholic churches in South Tyrol, which were created between 1945 and 1980. With his photographs, Perbellini analyses sacred spaces and emphasises their narrative character, which - despite their modest decoration - is expressed through stage-like settings and iconographic connections between specific works of art. The project also provides an insight into a period that was influenced architecturally and design-wise by both modern and historical tendencies.
