ARTEFIERA ART FIRST 2006
Celebrating 30 years
Bologna, 27 – 30 January 2006

 

30 years of ARTEFIERA; 30 years of modern and contemporary art; 30 years of successes for the Bologna art show and the artists who have arrived on the international scene via the exhibition halls of ARTEFIERA, winning recognition among collectors, gallery owners and art lovers; 30 years of prestige events that have involved leading figures from the world of art and culture.
 
ARTEFIERA has grown steadily over these years, securing a leadership position in the sector and transforming itself into an event combining market and culture, graced by collections and curators from leading organisations in search of the latest international art trends.
ARTEFIERA stands out for its stringent selection of participating galleries, which has made selectiveness and internationalisation the leitmotif of the growth strategies conceived and pursued in recent years by the event’s artistic director, Silvia Evangelisti, and the international markets consultant Lorenzo Rudolf.
ARTEFIERA 2005 unveiled the event’s new ART FIRST moniker, which clearly underscores its mission: “first art show of the year” and among the first in “size and exhibits” on the international scene.
Underlining the leadership of ARTEFIERA ART FIRST is the appearance at next January’s show of virtually all the foreign galleries that debuted in 2005, among them Ben Brown (London), De Noirmont (Paris), Karsten Greve (New York, Cologne, Zurich, Milan), Lisson (London), Haunch of Venison (London), Klüser (Munich), Ropac (Paris), Schulte (Berlin), and Sperone Westwater (New York).
Other prestigious international galleries – Arndt & Partner (Berlin/Zurich), Art of this Century (New York), Claude Bernard (Paris) Dabbeni (Lugano), Forsbolm (Helsinki), Mario Mauroner (Vienna), Museum 52 (London), Rothamel (Erfurt), Ruziska (Salzburg), Sollertis (Toulouse) – will be present at ARTEFIERA ART FIRST 2006, further enhancing the artistic line-up.

Emerging markets and young international galleries will be two key events at the 2006 show: EASTWARDS – EMERGING MARKETS, featuring a series of initiatives, will focus in particular on the artistic output of Eastern Europe, and particularly the liveliest and most dynamic of this region’s artistic communities.
New exhibition areas will be dedicated to young galleries, for whom ARTEFIERA ART FIRST will be the perfect platform from which to establish a dialogue with a public of experts and contemporary art enthusiasts.
Exhibition spaces will also be a key feature of the thirtieth ARTEFIERA ART FIRST show, which will continue with the layout revamp initiated last year by transferring the show into new halls and the re-distribution of spaces.
Large display areas, routes designed to maximise enjoyment of the artwork on show, and refined and elegant display structures will welcome visitors at ARTEFIERA ART FIRST 2006.
Initiatives staged in the exhibition centre and throughout the city, involving leading local institutions and the Bologna Modern Art Gallery, will help turn the four days of the show into a true celebration of modern and contemporary art: a mega-event spilling out into the city and turning Bologna into a “city for art” at the end of January 2006.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
