Umschlag leicht berieben, sonst gutes Exemplar. - The exhibition "Architecture & Arts 1900/2000"-organized by Germano Celant, with exhibition design by Gae Aulenti and graphics by Pierluigi Cerri-closes the autumn season of the celebration of Genoa 2004 - European Capital of Culture. It is dedicated to architecture and its inroads into the various and sundry artistic expressions of the twentieth century and of today, to its 'contamination by and osmotic absorption of the languages of painting, sculpture, literature, photography and cinema. This is an exposition of great value for a number of reasons. First and foremost, for the presence of works by some of the world's most renowned and acclaimed contemporary artists and architects and the presence of works by those who have deeply influenced the history of art and architecture, including the protagonists of the avant-garde movements of the first few decades of the last century, furthermore, because it is characterized by unheralded innovation, such as its expansion beyond the confines of the conventional conception of museum space into the surrounding city fabric. The Palazzo Ducale is the heart of the event, but the exhibition extends beyond its walls into a number of other urban spaces, seeking to interpret them in new ways. The city is involved for its great scenographie potential and for its wealth of painted buildings, one of Genoa's outstanding features and a magnificent exemplification of its expressive quest and successful integration, already some time ago, of art and architecture. But it is involved above all for its role as a contemporary city, perfectly in step with its times, a crucible for contemporary culture and workshop for social relations, where the expressions of the moment are many and range from architecture to the arts, to multiculturalism, to research and to new technologies. And often Genoa has even been ahead of its times. Just take for example the architectural work of the Eighties and Nineties, which radically altered the face of the city, or the artists and architects who began what would blossom into international careers here. And Genoa, "Ea Superba", has been and continues to be a transit point for an immense variety of avant-garde trends and expressions both in visual arts and in cinema, music, theater, graphics and cartoons.
