No 20 is delighted to announce VANITAS: Traces of Beauty, a group show featuring works by John Paul Azzopardi, Enrica Borghi, Carlotta Brunetti, Paolo Minioni and Franco Rasma.

Curated by Giovanna Nicoletti, the exhibition presents contemporary takes on the 17thC European tradition of representing the reality and shortness of life through memento mori - artworks designed to remind the viewer of their mortality and of the fragility of human life.

VANITAS: Traces of Beauty is an opportunity to revisit the classical motif through a contemporary lens. Like in the ancient forms of vanitas, the works of these artists also reflect on the themes of beauty and its brevity, highlighting a constant that establishes a dialogue between the past and the present.
