In 2013 the MAXXI (Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo) in Rome held a major retrospective of Ghirri’s work, curated by Francesca Fabiani, Laura Gasparini and Giuliano Sergio: ‘Luigi Ghirri, ‘Pensare per immagini’’ (23 April-27 October 2013): http://www.fondazionemaxxi.it/.
The MAXXI Ghirri retrospective is currently being exhibited in Brazil, thanks to the Instituto Moreira Salles, first in Sao Paulo (23 Nov 2013 – 26 Jan 2014) and then in Rio de Janeiro (6 Feb 2014 – 13 April 2014): http://www.lartiguenoims.com.br/photography/. This is the first exhibition of Ghirri’s work in Brazil.
