The Ladybug walks through the history of The Great Mother

The Ladybug Chronicles La Grande Madre (2)

When I came back to Milan after my summer holidays I saw an ad about one of the exhibits held in Palazzo Reale that I was very interested in. The exhibit was La Grande Madre (The Great Mother) and it was produced and created by the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi. I waited until the last day to visit it (as usual!) but I am happy that I managed to see it as it was one of the most interesting things I have seen in Milan lately.

It is a huge exhibit that retraces the iconography of motherhood in the art during the last two centuries through the work of more than a hundred international artists. As a result the exhibit also traces the history of women’s empowerment, gender struggles, sexual politics and clashes between tradition and emancipation.

It was also an occasion to admire artists as Lucio Fontana, Frida Kahlo, Man Ray, Salvador Dalí, Jeff Koons, Louise Bourgeois (I adored her installations), Robert Gober, Andy Warhol and Maurizio Cattelan, just to name a few.

I wore a casual outfit (Acne Studios jeans, Replay biker boots, Uniqlo cardi, Michael Kors bucket bag) with a vintage touch (my green handmade asymmetric hat by Stondo Firenze).
