At The Tony Cragg Exhibition in Lugano

Arts Guide

Glass sculpture by Tony Cragg in Lugano, Switzerlnad
A few weeks ago I went to the opening of Tony Cragg exhibition in Lugano. Although the Villa Ciani is not an ideal space for viewing Cragg’s sculptures I enjoyed the show immensely.

Giorgio Morandi at The Museo d’Arte, Lugano

Arts Guide

Went to the long awaited Giorgio Morandi exhibition opening last night at The Museo d’Arte. It is a really great show with about a hundred works on display including fascinating watercolors which I have not seen before. The only thing I could think of today is going back again and slowly studying every single piece of the show.

I also want to share the following video: a short interview with the exhibition curators Marco Franciolli* and Maria Cristina Bandera**.

The show runs until Sunday, July 1 daily (except Mondays) at Riva Caccia 5, CH – 6900 Lugano. For more details visit

** Director of the Florence Fondazione di Studi di Storia dell’Arte Roberto Longhi, author of a book Giorgio Morandi 1890-1964: Nothing Is More Abstract Than Reality
