“Riotous Baroque” confronts pictures from the seventeenth century with art of the present day. The exhibition focuses on the “riotous” aspect and the proximity to life that is a recurring theme in the literature on the Baroque. The show wishes to extricate the concept of the Baroque from its conventional context within the history of style and to distance itself from formai artistic clichés. “Riotous Baroque” is not about pomp, ornament and gold, but about “Tributes to Precarious Vitality” — a vitality that is lived, rediscovered, lost, projected, and threatened by death.
