FEATURED ARTIST: ARNALDO POMODORO

Art | May 16, 2020

Arnaldo Pomodoro was born in Montefeltro in 1926, he spent his childhood and education in Pesaro. He lives and works in Milan since 1954. His works from the 1950s are high-reliefs where a unique and previously unknown sculptural 'writing' emerged, variously interpreted by the most important critics. In the early 1960s he turned to three-dimensional work and focused his research into the solid geometric form: spheres, discs, pyramids, cones, columns, cubes - all in burnished bronze - are lacerated, corroded, excavated in their depths, with the intention of destroying their perfection and discovering the mystery closed within.

FEATURED ARTIST: ANTONY GORMLEY

Art | May 4, 2020

Antony Gormley is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. His work has developed the potential opened up by sculpture since the 1960s through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others in a way that confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos. Gormley continually tries to identify the space of art as a place of becoming in which new behaviours, thoughts and feelings can arise. Read more

OUR WORLD IS BURNING

Art | February 29, 2020

The exhibition "Our World Is Burning" offers a committed view of contemporary creation from the Arabian Gulf, where wars and diplomatic tensions have constantly determined the history of the early 21st century. Its title explicitly refers to the human dramas created by the successive conflicts in this region. "Our World Is Burning" also rings out like an alarm at a time when political vicissitudes are being added to by ecological catastrophes, embodied by massive destructive forest fires, from Amazonia to Siberia, via California and Australia, which bear witness to global warming. We are now "facing Gaia," to quote the title of Bruno Latour's book, facing its finitude. The world's commotions and instability are now perceived as being inexorable artifices created by mankind, swept away by its immoderation and omnipotence. Catastrophe is no longer a horizon for philosophical or aesthetic speculation, as Edmund Burke might have viewed it in the mid-18th century, during his quest for the sublime, when confronted with the troubles of the world. It is a reality. Read more
