Mimmo Rotella - The Urban Poet

Mon-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 12-6pm

JD Malat Gallery is thrilled to present Mimmo Rotella: The Urban Poet, a captivating solo exhibition by the Italian post-war artist Mimmo Rotella (1918 – 2006). This major retrospective brings together a vast array of never-before-seen works from the different periods of Rotella’s practice.

Created in collaboration with the Italian Embassy, the exhibition explores a variety of themes, from challenging the concept of traditional figurative art, to highlighting deconstruction and décollage as his primary artistic instrument.

"Mimmo Rotella is widely regarded as one of the most important post-war European artists. His décollage technique is the ideal illustration of the evolution of Italian art over time and acts as a vital expression of his times. The artist's strong sensibility enabled him to predict fundamental changes in artistic currents as well as in society, which he then manifested through this technique." - Inigo Lambertini, the Ambassador of Italy to the United Kingdom.
