After being the protagonist of important exhibitions during the most recent editions of the Venice Biennale, Roberto Sebastian Matta returns to Galleria d'Arte Maggiore g.a.m. with a new show in its venue in Bologna. The paintings, the mixed media and the sculptures made in bronze selected by Franco and Roberta Calarota give a complete portrait of an artist who deeply and repeatedly revolutionized the International artistic scene he was in contact with, absorbing the different cultures he met on his way. From his native land, Chile, Matta moved to Paris providing a major stimulus for the developing of the Surrealism. He moved then to New York where he influenced the younger generation of artists that would have then given birth to the American Abstract Expressionism. The memory of the past - from the legendary suggestions of the pre-Columbian lands to the Etruscan world, passing through Oceanic and primitive art - is permeated with visions of a futuristic future, creating an imagined dimension which is, however, always connected with the social and political reality the artist was deeply involved in.
