The Cloister of Bramante in Rome (1501) is his masterpiece of architectural simplicity that encompasses all the tenets of the Renaissance and deserves your attention.
Now a Gallery of Modern Art Exhibitions
For the last 20 years the Chiostro del Bramante has been home to some of the most interesting and exciting art exhibitions in Rome. The current exhibition titled “LOVE. Contemporary Art meets Amour” (Art Meets Love) – “The exhibition aims to tackle an emotion that is universally recognized and constantly studied and represented – Love – showing its various facets and its infinite manifestations: love that is happy, that is longed-for, misunderstood, hated, ambiguous, transgressive, or childish, love that unfolds along an unconventional exhibition route featuring visual and sensory input.” Until February 19, 2017
Great Contemporary Art
Featured artists include Vanessa Beecroft, Francesco Clemente, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Robert Indiana, Ragnar Kjartansson, Yayoi Kusama, Mark Manders, Ursula Mayer, Tracey Moffatt, Marc Quinn, Joana Vasconcelos, Francesco Vezzoli, Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann.
When you cannot enter another church or see another Caravaggio in this city of great art and even greater history; a visit to the Chiostro del Bramante might be the antidote you need.
