Kusama – Infinity

by Heather Lenz
USA, 2018, 85’

Now the top-selling female artist in the world, Yayoi Kusama overcame impossible odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. For decades, her work pushed boundaries that often alienated her from both her peers and those in power in the art world. Kusama was an underdog with everything stacked against her: the trauma of growing up in Japan during World War II, life in a dysfunctional family that discouraged her creative ambitions, sexism and racism in the art establishment, mental illness in a culture where that was particularly shameful and even continuing to pursue and be devoted to her art full time on the cusp of her 90s. In spite of it all, Kusama has endured and has created a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry and literary fiction. After working as an artist for over six decades, people around the globe are experiencing her installation Infinity Mirrored Rooms in record numbers, as Kusama continues to create new work every day.

BANSKY: Exit Through the Gift Shop
by Bansky
USA, GB, 2010, 87’

This is the inside story of Street Art – a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. Exit Through the Gift Shop follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world’s most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results.

Saturday 30th November 9.00 pm
Show Le cose che succedono di notte
with Debora Petrina and Tiziano Scarpa

Le cose che succedono di notte (Things that happen by night) is a show made of music and words.
Debora Petrina, singer-songwriter and composer, winner of Premio Ciampi, meets the writer Tiziano Scarpa, winner of Premio Strega with the novel Stabat mater.
On stage they play alternatively music and rhyme stories. On keyboards, guitar and voice, Debora connects herself to unknown worlds, like a kind of electronic visionary. She sings with scenic presence her beautiful sensual lively innovating songs. In between the songs, Tiziano narrates about men, trees, solitary animals looking for love and truth, and finding what they deserve. They are rhyme fairytales for adults. They are hilarious stories, sometimes dramatic, by Scarpa’s new book Una libellula di città (published by Minimum Fax).
Songs and musics by Debora Petrina (voice, keyboards and guitar).
Stories and rhymes by Tiziano Scarpa.
Thanks to Teatro Stabile del Veneto e Lorenzo Maragoni for the collaboration

by Andrzej Wajda
Poland, 2016, 98’

In post-war Poland, renowned painter Wladyslaw Strzemiński works as a professor at the National School of Fine Arts in Łódź. A great artist and co-creator of the theory of Unism, Strzemiński became famous before the Second World War. His students still treat him like the “messiah of modern painting”, but university authorities and the Ministry of Culture have a very different opinion. Unlike artists loyal to the doctrines of socialist realism and fulfilling Party tasks, Strzemiński does not compromise his art. He refuses to comply with Party regulations, and he is eventually expelled from the university and the artists’ union. But Strzemiński’s students continue to support him, visiting him for private lectures. They pen down his Theory of Vision and listen to his critique of their work. But jobless Strzemiński, impaired due to a missing arm and leg, soon falls into poverty and poor health as the Communist authorities remain persistent in their actions to ruin him…

Chi Siamo

Il Comune di Monselice si è molto impegnato per riconsegnare ai cittadini un bene così prezioso e di valore. Il recupero è stato possibile grazie all’ Intesa Programmatica d’Area (IPA) della “Bassa Padovana” presieduta dalla Provincia di Padova che ha attuato gli adempimenti necessari per la presentazione del progetto alla Regione Veneto per il finanziamento delle opere.

La Villa

Villa Pisani sorge nel centro storico di Monselice, lungo il canale Bisatto, un’arteria fluviale che congiunge Padova con Montagnana. L’edificio venne eretto attorno al 1500 da Francesco Pisani di Zuanne (1514-1567) nobile patrizio veneziano come piccola dimora per agevolare i suoi viaggi da e per Montagnana, luogo di residenza della famiglia dove venivano amministrare le ingenti proprietà terriere.
