July 17th 2019 > jan 6th 2020 – Mole Antonelliana
A great exhibition based on the Museum’s prestigious collection, that tells the story of this pseudoscience over the past five hundred years. An emotional path takes you from masks to facial recognition systems once again confirming that a face is the most important place where a human being’s soul can express itself.
The exhibition weaves the threads of an ancient discourse the origins of which date back to Aristotle, stretching out to the present. It seeks the feedback of the characters and emotions of people in their features, but also in the graphic synthesis of the Emojis, a sort of "catalogue" to capture visitors’ eyes and seduce their mind as the look in the mirror and recognize their faces in a crowd of sketched, caricatured, deformed, sublimated images from Leonardo da Vinci into a future that has already begun.
