An Exhibition on Occasion of his 80th Birthday

Opening reception: 
Friday, July 8, 2016
Exhibition period:
Saturday, July 09, 2016 - Sunday, September 04, 2016

Curator: GĂĽnther Oberhollenzer

Markus Vallazza. Illustrator, etcher, poet, rebel, cosmopolitan. The South Tyrolean artist has drawn and passionately interpreted - never simply illustrated - innumerable works of world literature. Markus Vallazza will turn eighty in 2016. Merano Arte is honoring this exceptional artist with the exhibition curated by GĂĽnther Oberhollenzer, underlining his great importance for the art in South Tyrol over the past fifty years. Yet, Vallazza is also admired and appreciated far beyond the borders of his home country. He is an undisputed master of his trade and can be referred to as one of Europe's most significant etchers and illustrators. undefinedmore..

Over the three decades from 1978 to 2008, Frida Parmeggiani was Europe's most sought-after costume designer. She worked with such legendary producers as Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Samuel Beckett, AndrĂ© Heller, and others, and as early as 1979, she did the designs for Wagner's "Lohengrin" at the Bayreuth Festival. For the Salzburg Festival, she designed the striking and fantastic costumes for "Erwartung/Herzog Blaubarts Burg" ["Expectations/Bluebeard's Castle"]“, "PellĂ©as et Melisande", "Mitridate", and "Dantons Tod" ["Danton's Death"]. The Parmeggiani exhibitions entitled "Costume Abstractions" in Salzburg and Merano this summer span nine new costumes, some of which comprise several parts. Elfriede Jelinek calls them "Stoff-Geschöpfe" ["textile artifacts"]. In these artifacts, Frida Parmeggiani fathoms the tension between space, form, and fabric.  For the first time, Parmeggiani works without a dramatic composition, singers, or actors, so she can apply her minimalist design vocabulary in a static-sculptural manner. undefinedmore..
