Barbieri, Fossati, Guidi, Niedermayr

This is the forth chapter of acquisitions made by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena for its collection of  Italian contemporary photography.
The exhibition focuses on key figures of the Italian history of photography. Four authors who, between the late 1970s and the following decade, fostered a radical renewal of photographic language in this country: Olivo Barbieri, Vittore Fossati, Guido Guidi e Walter Niedermayr.

The selected works by Guido Guidi document some of the most significant stages of his research on urban fringe areas, whereas Olivo Barbieri’s photographs, which include the historic Flipper series, are a testimony of his early career; Vittore Fossati’s Belle Arti cycle is juxtapose with imagines exploring landscape, some of which were included in the renowned Viaggio in Italia exhibition; a selection of Walter Niedermayr’s latest researches conducted in the Alps and Iran is also include in the exhibition.
