“What defines an error?” – an interview with Gian Paolo Renzi Pari

The ongoing contemporary development of art fairs has transformed these events into free-zones of artistic expression - an artistic context in which art could appear in any way, shape, or form.

ALBERT PINYA: THE TIME IS NOW

Do you know Albert Pinya? If you don’t recognize this name, you’re going to want to pay attention. Pinya is one of the most celebrated members of the new generation of Spanish painters, born in the 1980s. Above all, his work is characterized by its constant questioning of morality and human behavior. Combining elements that are equally tragic, absurd, grotesque, decadent, ridiculous and irreverent, which are linked at times to an ironic vision, which is comical in other times, or a little naïve in other occasions or even gruesome sometimes, Pinya works to take us all a step closer to the here and now.

Curator Stefano Collicelli Cagol asks: What is Experimental? At Artissima

Art fairs are unifying: they bring together artworks, and they bring together people. The benefits of attending an art fair, therefore, extend to a social and educational experience. Artissima, in particular, places a lot of emphasis on the connectivity of art world participants and art lovers. Ever in search for innovative initiatives, and in the interest of asking the important questions, Artissima this year included a series of talks, titled What is Experimental. These talks are being led by Stefano Collicelli Cagol, currently curator for Norway’s Trondheim kunstmuseum.

Chert Gallery returns to Artissima as ChertLüdde

For an art fair like Artissima, it is important to include a healthy dose of both newcomers and seasoned players alike. After the breakthrough years, the challenge for seasoned players is to keep up with the level of presentation that the public has come to expect, whilst, of course, also keeping things fresh, interesting, and in some ways, unpredictable.
