Pictures and after
For several years, MAMCO has been building up a substantial collection of works from the “Pictures Generation,” the name now used to describe the generation of artists who reshaped image production and distribution practices in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Thanks to the efforts of the MAMCO Foundation and the MAMCO Friends Association, and to the generosity of artists and private donors, this process has reached a first step of achievement—albeit with scope for further development. This exhibition showcases the resulting collection and aims to shine a light on the various strategies employed by artists since the 1960s and on how they have influenced younger practices.
