Federico Fellini Genius of humanity
18 -24 October 2021
The reception will take place in the presence of H.E. Massimo Baggi, the Ambassador of Switzerland to the UAE and H.E. Nicola Lener, the Ambassador of Italy to the UAE.
The exhibition invites us to revisit some of the most important works in the history of cinema and more widely in 20th Century art. Federico Fellini is known for his distinctive style, which blends fantasy and baroque images with earthiness. He is recognized as one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers of all time.
Crowned with five Oscars and feted at the most illustrious film festivals, Fellini’s work has become universal in its appeal because, with the full force of poetry, it asks questions about the identity of modern man, about his place in time, about death, power, desire and finally, about the very nature of his freedom. The creative independence of the artist who disregards all forms of authority owes much to the world of the circus where nothing is impossible.
This particular exhibition was created in the honor of the UN and displayed at the Palais des Nations in Geneva in 2019 and is dedicated to Human Rights and is now at Total Arts at the Courtyard.
Film screening: “La Strada” on Saturday 23rd at Courtyard Playhouse
The exhibition is in collaboration with the Embassy of Switzerland, the Embassy of Italy, The Fellini Foundation and the Istituto Italiano Di Cultura.
