On Wednesday 30 August at 6.30 p.m., on the occasion of Leonor Fini’s birthday (Buenos Aires, 30 August 1907 – Paris, 18 January 1996), Trieste Contemporanea will remember the surrealist painter, set designer, costume designer, writer, illustrator and designer who grew up and trained in Trieste: this will be the sixth edition of the Secret Party for Leonor Fini, an event ideated by Corrado Premuda, which in 2023 will focus on a conversation by Vanja Strukelj.
The Trieste researcher will propose a stimulating critical reading of Fini’s work also starting from the books and documents on the artist collected by Corrado Premuda, which will be officially donated to the “Trieste Contemporanea” Library during the celebration.
