EXHIBITIONS IN PROGRESS
Statues, busts, faces, parts of the body: these are the ex-votos that the devout Etruscans of Veio offered as gifts to the divinities they trusted. The variety of representations is found in the wider panorama of devotional objects, gifts with a strong symbolic value, which have accompanied the relationship between man and the entities to which the ability to change fate is attributed for millennia and at all latitudes.
The collection of votive offerings from the city of Veio arrived in the Museum in 1894 where it was exhibited until the 1980s. Today, it is rediscovered thanks to a research project which, also through advanced analysis techniques, adds new data to previous knowledge.
The layout in the Archeology Room refers to nineteenth-century museology, interweaving it with contemporary elements to stage the devotional objects of the collection.
An evocative video mapping returns to the faces of the bidders the chromaticism identified in the analyzes performed by the DI.AR Laboratory with the most advanced multispectral techniques, created for the first time on Etruscan votive terracottas, and fits into the wake of that relationship between culture, art and which has led Modena to become a Unesco Creative City for the Media Arts.
The installation created by Delumen combines a philological approach with one of free interpretation. On the one hand, the video projection returns the original colors to the votive heads, starting from the specimens on which traces of polychromy are preserved. On the other hand, even through sounds and faint voices, it secretly connects us in space and time to the most intimate desires and aspirations of the women and men of this ancient past.
The different languages, the result of synergies between different disciplines and skills, offer the public an experience of discovery and knowledge.

A virtual experience to interact with the museum heritage through the video game. Created in 2009 by Swedish developer Markus Persson, known as “Notch”, Minecraft is the best-selling video game in the world.
The first solo exhibition in a museum institution of the IOCOSE artistic collective.
A series of works created in the last decade which, through a poetic and surreal reading of the myths of progress, produces new interpretations of the imaginary on technological innovation.
A Palazzo Santa Margherita (Corso Canalgrande, 103), inaugura e prosegue fino al 26 febbraio 2023, la prima personale italiana dei pionieri della Net Art Eva & FrancoMattes. Most to Least Viewed, a cura di Nadim Samman. La mostra si concentra su dati, potere e identità, ambiti che da lungo tempo caratterizzano il lavoro dei due artisti, presentando uno spettro di lavori recenti, selezionati da un misterioso algoritmo e disposti in sequenza dal più visto al meno visto. Come sempre con la loro arte, che fa da specchio alla società dell’informazione, le cose non sono come sembrano. Per il duo, la tensione tra effetti di superficie e condizioni più profonde si rivela terreno fertile per l’immaginazione e la critica

9 September 2022 – 31 January 2023
Gallerie Estensi – Largo Porta Sant’Agostino, 337
Until 31 January 2023 it is possible to visit the Simon Starling exhibition. Metamorphfire.
Conceived in the context of the Estense Galleries of Modena and inspired by the works of Tintoretto’s pictorial cycle in the Estense Gallery, in particular by the painting “The fall of Phaethon” and by the magnificent illustrations that have been selected from the pages of precious volumes in the Estense Library, the exhibition is the result of a work of exploration and imagination by a great contemporary artist, in relation to the cultural context of the territory, created with the support of Marazzi for the flooring of the work.
Never Ending Stories is the largest institutional exhibition dedicated to Candice Breitz in Italy. Three works on display, Love Story, (with Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin), Digest, which draws inspiration from home video cinema and The Thousand and One Nights, and Labor, a work to be experienced intimately in Modena and of which there are no public images.
The opening with free admission is scheduled for Wednesday 8 June starting at 18:00.
From Friday 13 May, at the Nuovo Diurno in Piazza Mazzini and at the Open Laboratory, the interactive exhibition that investigates the mechanisms of the perception of reality.
Can we trust our senses? And does technology make reality clearer or does it help to confuse it with fiction? Arrives in Modena, from Friday 13 May April, set up at the Nuovo Diurno in piazza Mazzini and at the open laboratory, “Illusion: nothing is as it seems”, the interactive exhibition that investigates how perception supports our way of seeing, feeling, thinking and understanding the world, showing us how what we perceive, on the other hand, is often radically different from reality.
Produced by the Science Gallery of Ireland and Trinity College Dublin with OpificioInnova, “Illusion: nothing is as it seems”, which has already been exhibited in Sardinia, will be set up in Modena in collaboration with the Municipality, as part of the Modena initiatives Unesco creative city for media arts, and with the laboratory open, and will be open until September 30th.

A single large site-specific installation that combines elements of fiction, documents and real data, still and moving images, films and archival research in order to reveal the paradoxes contained in the systemic logic of social monitoring.
Decompressed Prism is Salvatore Vitale’s exhibition curated by Chiara Dall’Olio to be held in the great hall of Palazzo Santa Margherita, from 4 March to 5 June 2022.
Salvatore Vitale with his work shows us how the society in which we live increasingly resembles an airport, in which public life is subjected to ever higher levels of surveillance and security. Airports are in fact the most controlled places and despite being transit areas, this is where surveillance has a profound impact on human behavior: travelers are monitored in their physical experience, constantly “seen” by cameras, and in their data dimension. , analyzed and monitored by different types of biometric technologies for security reasons. His project therefore invites reflection on possible counter-strategies that we, citizens and political subjects, can undertake to promote greater transparency of the systems that regulate society and that shape individual codes and behaviors.
A single exhibition itinerary that brings together a large and cohesive selection of works produced by the artist over the last ten years, in dialogue with the large installation Iris, created for the occasion.
Monitoring Control is the Paolo Cirio exhibition curated by Marco Scotini.
Through a series of important works, eight of which are present in the exhibition, Paolo Cirio has tried to give visual form to all those forces that control and capture our lives (in a pervasive and violent way), evading normal perception and remaining carefully hidden while operating at the light of the Sun. In this sense, realism means overcoming the constitutive opacity of the contemporary (economic, social, legal) world. Not only through the unmasking of what appears but also through a modeling of what remains buried. For this reason, the title of the exhibition, Monitoring Control, alludes to a double monitoring: that exercised by power and, vice versa, that which social subjectivities can exercise over forms of control, through an awareness of the phenomenon and an antagonistic operation.
HYPERINASCIMENTO is the Luca Pozzi exhibition curated by Lorenzo Respi
With this title the artist launches the idea of a new humanism that brings together art history, quantum gravity, multi-messenger cosmology and AI with an interdisciplinary perspective that has its roots in the Renaissance and then explores the world through the eyes of contemporary science and technologies.
On display there will be a large analog immersive environment accompanied by a virtual one in which the viewer can immerse themselves, crossing a path of spiritual ascension that evokes the nature of a five-dimensional Zen garden in which invisible physical events take place through the use of magnetic fields. and subatomic particle detectors. All this will interact with different social platforms (Twitter, Instagram) and then land on digital spaces where the laws of physics are revolutionized to access surreal parallel universes.
Interactive and multimedia video installation conceived by auroraMeccanica and curated by Francesca Fontana.
Figure shows the world of stickers in the contemporary world: here the news is represented by Instagram.
The installation extrapolates from today’s “stickers”, the images that we post every day on social media, the great contemporary themes by comparing them with paper objects, part of the Museum’s collection in Modena, which has handed down history to us. With these premises, the project takes place in a projection of about 9 meters that frames six issues related to the world of (over) production of images. Through an ad hoc algorithm, Figura makes a constantly updated selection of the images posted on Instagram, engaging the viewer with an interactive action, following his gaze and hand gestures, able to enlarge, underline, or point the lens on most important details.
