Maria Lai on Artforum

Artforum just published an amazing review penned by Alessandra Pioselli (translated by Marguerite Shore) on Maria Lai‘s largely celebrated retrospective at MAXXI Museum in Rome.
« Throughout her oeuvre, Lai dialectically probed light and shadow. The exhibition emphazises this effort, drawing its subtitle “Tenendo per mano il sole” (Taking the Sun by the Hand), from the first of the artist’s “Sewn Fables”, 1989-96, an ebroidered fabric book that shows a path from darkness to illumination. »
The exhibition will be open to the public through January 12th 2020.
