AT THE ORIGINS OF CRISTINA

Wednesday, October 5th 2022, from 6 pm to 9 pm

Galleria Rubin inaugurate the exhibition Alle Origini di Cristina

One year after the installation of the monument dedicated to Cristina Trivulzio di Belgioioso, created by sculptor Giuseppe Bergomi, Galleria Rubin is opening the exhibition Alle Origini di Cristina. 
The exhibition, which will be open from October 5th to October 29th, 2022, aims to recapitulate the creative steps that led the Brescian artist to the conception of the Milanese monument. 
On display will be small sculptures, bronzes and terracottas, depicting human figures, mostly female, seated or huddled on a cube-shaped armchair. This seat is the same one we find, adapted and with new intentions, in the statue dedicated to Cristina Trivulzio, Milan’s first monument dedicated to a female historical figure. Here, the cube element functions both in a realistic key, as a support for the seated figure in her intent to rise, and in an abstract key, a metaphorical surface linked to rationality, on which to engrave those words that in 1866 Cristina addressed to the women of the future.

The centerpiece of the exhibition in Galleria Rubin is represented by Cristina’s bronze, a small-scale reproduction of the monument and a symbol of the crowning achievement of the collaboration, which united Fondazione Brivio Sforza, Le Dimore del Quartetto and Galleria Rubin for fifteen months of passionate work.
