Fornasetti in Stockholm, Inside Out Outside In


On 14 June 2019, the exhibition FORNASETTI Inside Out Outside In opens at Artipelag. It is the first exhibition in Sweden to embrace the entire output of Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988), right up to the contemporary work of his son Barnaba.

This exhibition reveals his numerous dimensions and his entire output, from paintings to drawings, from graphic art to furniture, from design objects to installations, revealing how his work encompasses various artistic disciplines: art, design and craftsmanship.

Inside Out Outside In brings out the richness of his imagination and that  that singular method which applies technical competence to express a personal vision and to depict reality. In a double and almost perpetual movement, which remains a central feature of Fornasetti’s entire artistic oeuvre. His creative ideas seem to emerge from an inexhaustible source, and it becomes clear that his notion of design itself takes its cue from this absence of temporal and disciplinary boundaries, from a philosophical reflection that permeates all categories and puts man and the human condition at its centre.
