Thomas Gillespie: Unknown Subject

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 3 luglio 2010

Pietrasanta (Lu) 12/8/2010 via Nazario Sauro, 52 ExMarmi. Curata da Marina Fokidis, l’esposizione di grandi tele di Gillespie dà il via al programma di mostre, concentrate soprattutto nel periodo estivo, pensate in collaborazione con la Galleria Poggiali e Forconi di Firenze appositamente per lo spazio nel quale convivono le dimensioni della fabbrica con l’esperienza della messa in scena teatrale.  I lavori in mostra, quadri e interventi installativi tutti appositamente concepiti per l’occasione, sono accomunati dalla riflessione sull’attuale società del -grande fratello-, predetta da George Orwell. L’esigenza di -controllo- che anima il mondo globalizzato e’ causata dal nuovo uso dei mezzi di comunicazione che testimoniano le nostre azioni -in tempo reale-. Questa condizione di perdita di privacy pero’ e’ solo un sintomo della richiesta attuale del cittadino di sentirsi al sicuro in un mondo in cui la minaccia e’ suggerita come condizione permanente e costante. Adesso, piu’ che mai, appare evidente che la paura e’ un ottimo deterrente per la democrazia.
Il Libro, dal titolo “Unknown subject- a cura di Lorenzo Bruni, pubblicato per l’occasione, raccoglie le opere presentate per la mostra a Pietrasanta, i cicli precedenti inclusi i collage ispirati a situazioni della vita quotidiana inglese. http://www.poggialieforconi.it

Three exhibitions

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 11 luglio 2009

elisabethLondon until 20/9/2009 Whitechapel  80-82 Whitechapel High Street East End Academy – Elizabeth Peyton – Patrizio Di Massimo East End Academy: The Painting Edition  This exhibition provides a timely opportunity to review some of the latest developments in British painting. It brings together twelve distinct positions which each address the pertinent issues facing painting today. Varda Caivano’s multi-layered canvases, Robert Holyhead’s delicate compositions, and Henrijs Preiss’ arrangements of circles and lines offer three different takes on abstraction.  The artists were selected from over 600 submissions by a panel comprising Gillian Carnegie, painter and Turner Prize nominee, Marion Naggar, collector, Francis Outred, European Head of Post War and Contemporary Art at Christie’s, Barry Schwabsky, critic and Anthony Spira, Director of Milton Keynes Gallery.  East End Academy is a triennial exhibition open to all artists living or working in east London. First organised in 1932, this latest version is uniquely devoted to painting. By showcasing the work of artists in the early stages of their career, East End Academy offers a snapshot of the extraordinary breadth and vitality of art produced by the thousands of practitioners who live and work near to the Whitechapel Gallery.  The exhibition is accompanied by a publication including entries on each artist.  Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton  9 July-20 September 2009
Galleries 8 & 9  A luminous palette and rhythmic energy of line combine with realism to make Elizabeth Peyton a painter of modern life. Born in Connecticut in 1965, Peyton studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where she lives and works. Executed in oil paint, watercolour, ink or pencil, her small but intense portraits may be inspired by photographs in the media, but often and increasingly they are drawn from life. Patrizio Di Massimo  9 July-20 September 2009  Zilkha Auditorium Oae is a recently completed video work which takes Italy’s colonial occupation of Libya as its  subject matter. Patrizio Di Massimo examines this dark chapter in his native Italy’s history by overlapping excerpts  of his own footage with black and white documentary and archive material taken from The Lion in the Desert, a film  made in 1981 by Mustapha Akkad and censored in Italy at the time for its expose’ of empire building and military  atrocities. Filmed in high-definition colour on the streets of modern day Tripoli and amongst historical ruins  across Libya, the artist sought out the monuments and architectural remnants of both Ancient Rome and more recently Fascist rule from 1911-1940.
