The traveling exhibit Doppio Sogno Dell’Arte (Art’s Double Dream) comes to IOMCA, the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, after its US premier at the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago. The exhibit centers on the history of the famous Roman print studio 2RC which has kept alive the graphic arts tradition for more than fifty years. Studio 2RC reproduces masterpieces by established artists and proprietors Valter and Eleonora Rossi are constantly on the lookout for new techniques that will do justice to the artists and their styles. While showcasing the history of this extraordinary print studio, the exhibit traces the international history of graphic design from the 1970s to the present. On display will be engravings by Alberto Burri (known for his signature style, delicate and blood-stained), project plans by Henry Moore, Sam Francis’s explosions of color, George Segal’s casts, and Basaldella’s dreamlike geometries; other artists represented will include Enzo Cucchi, Victor Pasmore, Louise Nevelson, Arnaldo Pomodoro, and others. This exhibit will set Italian artists side-by-side with their American and English counterparts thus bringing points of contact and lyrical affinities to light.


The pioneering work of studio 2RC reflects a concept of the artist as demiurge—craftsman-creator of the universe—who gives concrete form to personal dreams. Studio 2RC expands on or, better yet, multiplies the artist’s original creation and in so doing instills the artwork with a kind of second life—a surprising and unexpected “double dream.”
