FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS 2024 PRESENTS MARK DI SUVERO “SPACETIME”
August 24 – October 27, 2024

The Festival of the Arts comes back to Umbria for the fourth year after the successful third edition held in Todi and it will be curated by Marco Tonelli. The event is promoted by the Beverly Pepper Projects Foundation and realized in partnership with the Municipality of  Todi.  The aim is to invite the most important contemporary artists to make monumental installations in public spaces around Todi in order to create a direct connection between people and contemporary art. The curtain will go up on August 24 and the spotlight will be on  “Neruda’s gate” (2005), a temporary installation by the great American sculptor Mark di Suvero in the central square Piazza del Popolo in Todi. On August 24, in conjunction with the first day of the Todi Festival, there will be also the opening of the temporary exhibition “Mark di Suvero: SPACETIME”, at Sala delle Pietre in the town hall. The exhibition is curated by Marco Tonelli and it will be on display until October 6. The show will highlight di Suvero’s interest in the concepts of matter and antimatter, relativity, four-dimensional space, gravity and quantum physics by exhibiting some large-scale paintings from his personal collection and studio in New York, created between 2014 and 2022 in acrylic and phosphorescent painting.
