This exhibition, the first solo show dedicated to her work in Italy, aims to present her as a total artist and illuminate her artistic universe and intellectual persona through her visionary and diverse creations. The exhibition will have a strong emphasis on Carrington´s lifetime relationship with Italy beginning with her discovery of Italian art in Florence as a teenager and exploring her post-Victorian and Celtic origins and her affiliation with Surrealism. Together with these key moments in her life, the proposal is divided in various themes that touch upon Carrington as a woman artist, a migrant, an exile, a mother, an avant-garde feminist, ecologist, and an artist that spent her life as a perpetual traveller through other worlds and dimensions in a permanent pursuit of self-knowledge. 
The exhibition includes not only the paintings but also photographs, books from his personal library and archival material.
