Exquisite Anatomies

Exhibition of the Israeli artist Yuval Avital (Jerusalem, 1977), in dialogue with the Spallanzani Collection of the Museums Palace, within the project “Bestiary of the Earth”. In the Museums Palace, via Spallanzani 1.

June 10 - July 24, 2022

The core of the exhibition is the Cadavres exquis, hybrid beings, half animal, half human or assemblies of several animals that frightened - but actually fascinated considerably - the collective imagination by leaving the human model.

The artist gives voice to his subconscious and his imagination by shaping hybrid and fantastic creatures with often bright and contrasting colours, sometimes suspended in the void, others integrated in alienating settings.

The Cadavres exquis are not just art games but representations of freedom and the subconscious, an iconographic stream of consciousness of our vision of the world.


Wednesday 9.00 - 11.00 p.m.; Friday-Sunday 10.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m. and 9.00 - 11.00 p.m.
