STEFANO ARIENTI
Volume 9

 

Stefano Arienti is one of the most articulate representatives of a generation of artists that became established at the end of the 1980s. Like his peers, Arienti reacted to the heroic stances of a certain type of painting then fashionable, which glorified instinct and talent; his own vision of art proposed instead the restoration of intelligence and theory.
This film presents a valuable account of Arienti as archivist who presents the works in his Milan studio with clarity and irony.
