World Disclosure is an exhibition that commemorates the artistic contribution by two renowned Italian artists who lived in two distant cities: Rome (Italy) and Johannesburg (South Africa). The exhibition showcases excellent works of art by acclaimed sculptors, Luigi di Sarro (1941- 1979) and Edoardo Villa (1915-2011). The works selected for this exhibition reflect both artists’ profound understanding of design principles. These works depict great ability and magnificent use positive and negative spaces that show harmonious linear form, balanced composition, three-dimensional volume and significant understanding of the sculptural material used.
This international temporary exhibition to be held in the Villa Museum in the Old Merensky Building is kindly brought to you by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Pretoria in collaboration with the Luigi Di Sarro’s Centre of Documentation for Contemporary Artistic Research in Rome and the University of Pretoria Museums in the Department of UP Arts.
