The group show, curated by Lorenzo Madaro and coordinated by Nunzia Perrone will be held at A100 Gallery space in Galatina from 2nd of May until 30th of September 2015.
The exhibition aims to explore the importance of paper in the artistic creation. Seemingly secondary, this inspirational medium has always been the starting point for the artists that enabled ideas and projects, studies and research, establishing a direct contact between the concept and the realization of the work of art. The works on display belong to different styles, currents and generations of artists, ranging from conceptual to minimalism, from the absolute rigor of the drawing to the Mediterranean warmth of painting; from feathery lightness of watercolour to the expressive heteroclite force of materials such as copper and iron, coal and wood. Within specific sections the public will be able to focus on different fronts, including the site-specific installation, the artist’s book, sculpture and video. Heterogeneous languages allow the visitors to discover a polyhedral world, vast and bountiful of remarkable surprises. Works that can be considered significant pieces of the history of art – made in the sixties – will be joined in new proposals, conceived especially for this project and coordinated by A100 Gallery which has decided to focus this exhibition on masters and young consolidated talents.
Concurrently with the exhibition a book documentig the importance of the paper as medium for artistical research, with an extensive historical overview starting from the beginning of XX to present times will be published by A100 Publications.
