marcoMiami  June – 4 July 2009 Museum of the Americas 2500 NW 79th Ave, 104, Doral, Florida 33122 Exhibition hours: Tuesday-Friday, 11-5 and Saturdays by appointment only Curated by Sabrina Falzone Biographical Notes by Sabrina Falzone: “Born shortly after the Constitution of the Republic of Italy came into effect, the internationally recognised artist Marco Salvatore Mallamaci is of aristocratic Greek lineage that can be traced back to the very foundation of his birthplace, Magna Graecia. An artist, collector and official of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs since 1979, Marco is a multifaceted character who surprises everyone he meets. He mostly lives abroad and is currently living in Managua (Nicaragua), where he is posted as Acting Consul. He has travelled widely through Asia, Africa, America and Europe. These journeys have left indelible traces on his path in life, significantly enriching the cultural, ethnic, political and professional experiences which now represent the foundation of his inner wealth, the well from which he draws his inexhaustible creativity. In the twenty-year period between 1980 and 1999, Marco moved to other countries besides Belgium, including Ethiopia, Great Britain and Colombia. 1999 turned out to be a decisive year, in which he settled in Beijing (China), a new home that would propel him to national stardom. By 2003, Marco had begun to showcase his paintings to tens of thousands of art lovers and collectors at major international exhibitions in Beijing and Canton. Making his debut in the October of that same year, he participated in the Sixth Beijing International Art Exhibition.  Marco’s sensational popularity with the Chinese media has given his reputation an enormous boost. The prestigious monthly magazine “China Today”, founded by the wife of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, Founding Father of the People’s Republic of China, was one of the first to sit up and take note. The fourth edition of “China Today” (April 2004) published a three-page feature on Marco, including an interview conducted by Dr. Hu Chunhua, Director of the French edition (“La Chine au Présent”). In November 2007 he took part in “Impressions of the East”, the International Art Exhibition held in the impressive Palazzo Spinola di San Luca (also known as the Palazzo Ratto-Picasso) in Genoa. The following month, as a guest of the Scientific Committee, Marco appeared (for the first and last time) at the sixth edition of the International Biennale of Contemporary Art in Florence, held at the Fortezza da Basso. In 2008 he was the Guest of Honour at the fourth International Biennale of Ferrara, sponsored by the Municipality and Province of Ferrara and held at the historic Palazzo Ex Borsa.Marco’s success is proof that art can still be considered a valid tool for unprejudiced political, ethical and social expression.
