Masters of Brera ®


History of an itinerant exhibition

Federica Berner lives in the Brera area, where she undertook her professional course.
Drawing on her fascination for the world that developed around the Accademia of Belle Arti, on the many galleries, bars and restaurants attended by the artists that disseminated the city’s pictorial traditions, she has gathered their portraits on thin cloths. These cloths describe the artists in a somehow unreal and impalpable way, however retaining their substance and integrity.
It’s more about a work of synthesis than a series of representations. Her intention is to give life to a movement rather than to any specific character.
The biography of this world as a whole, taken from her own and her friends’ memories, has been Berner’s way to pay homage to the life of Brera.
The “Maestri di Brera” installation was hosted initially in Milan, in the “Cortile della Seta” of the Commercio and Industria Bank, then in New York, within the Artemide, Bisazza and Natuzzi showrooms, then in the home of Carducci in Valdicastello Carducci.
Ultimately, the installation served as an accompaniment, vessel and background to the works of 120 Lombard artists that were presented at the “Masters of Brera” exhibition that took place in Shanghai in the prestigious Liu Hai-su Modern Art Museum. The exhibition was supported by the Region of Lombardy, the Lombard Chambers of Commerce, the Promos, the Unioncamere Lombardia, Italianlink and Mob and received patronage from Fiera Milano International, Accademia of Belle Arti of Brera-Milan, Italia Cina Foundation and Enjoy Miart.
