Augusto Daolio: Uno Sguardo Libero
Apr 12 – May 12, 2024
Spazio Musa
Turin, Italy

Augusto Daolio: Uno Sguardo Libero is the new exhibition to be held at Spazio Musa from April 12 to May 12, 2024. Historical leader of Nomadi, Augusto Daolio was for several decades one of the most beloved singers of Italian music. The intent of this exhibition is above all to show how his figure as an artist, his poetics and his creativity were, even several decades ago, capable of interpreting the feelings of the younger generations, as well as anticipating. In the rich and articulate context of the exhibition, it emerges even more clearly, the expressive power of his voice that appears more relevant today than ever before. The many songs written and sung with Nomadi, bearers of pacifist messages, of rejection of all forms of war, discrimination and nationalism, dialogue with the subjects of the many paintings and drawings depicting a metamorphic nature that merges with the human element. Visitors will be able to freely follow the thematic tracks, consisting of some 60 paintings, some 40 original manuscripts with sketches of songs and poems, numerous sketches and pages from diaries, photographs, videos and music, thus activating their own mental associations and interpretations. An open narrative in which art, society, irony, travel, nature, relationships, youth, dreams, diversity and social engagement are explored through a multitude of materials made available by partner Rosanna Fantuzzi, including many previously unpublished ones. A series of side events are also planned during the exhibition period, with guests from the world of music, culture and entertainment.

This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
