Galeria D'Arte Moderna 

Rape of Africa

Milan, Italy

November 11 - December 6, 2009

Press Release:

"There are works of areas of great value, at first glance, can almost go unnoticed. This is the great class of objects and important things, the extraordinary to be discovered in ordinary aspects."  explains Casiraghi, convinced that we must return to give dignity to the works, going against the so-called art of fashion. This is the latest provocation of the Genoese who, in his ideal Mint, dreams that the photographer David LaChapelle wanders in the corridors of the Fair to portray Monet, Manet, and Picasso sitting on the grass of a large law, while they are having a snack among the characters of their works. Visitors will not dream when they see, exposed to Mint in its Italian premiere, just the last work of great LaChapelle, of the school of Andy Warhol, with its current title, Rape of Africa of Africa. Citing the Renaissance masterpiece of Botticelli, Venus and Marie, LaChapelle's work is, in the words of Marco Voena, "the summa of Mint, the encounter between the Renaissance and the contemporary." All that remains is to the go and discover it, walking in the garden of Mint.
