Tullio Garbari. Primitivism and Modernity

The Mart is exhibiting at Palazzo delle Albere a selection of works by Tullio Garbari, which belong to the provincial collections 

ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.

Highly skilled at expressing values with deep roots in Trentino, Garbari (Pergine Valsugana, 1892 - Paris, 1931) was an artist and poet who mingled with key players of the Italian avant-garde movement from a very young age. In fact, the artist started exhibiting works in Venice at Ca' Pesaro when he was just eighteen, participating in a sort of artistic renewal that involved the likes of Arturo Martini, Umberto Moggioli and Gino Rossi. 

His simple, almost naive art forms were an expression of a "cultured primitivism" that was fostered by an interest in history of art, ancient languages and philosophy, and inserted into a 20th-century cultural context: a culture that Garbari interpreted in the light of his personal spiritual quest.
The Mart is exhibiting Garbari’s works in a space that has previously played host to the Collections and exhibitions of the Museum. In fact, the Palazzo delle Albere was the Mart’s first seat and its exhibition history is told in the show via a series of videos made with documentary materials from the Photographic and Media Archive.
