Casa Mutina Milano
Curated by Sarah Cosulich, the exhibition generates an unexpected dialogue between the ceramic surfaces of Mutina and 100 canvases by the artist from the series Day by Day, Good Day, shown in the guise of a single large installation.
From 1974 to 2019 Peter Dreher painted the same empty glass on a daily basis, at the same distance but at various moments of the day, on canvases of identical size. The series, which the artist completed during 45 years of work, contains 5200 paintings. Choosing to repeat the same subject, Dreher called into question the idea of painting itself, testing the limits between subjectivity and distance, illusion and abstraction, gaze and perception.
