Galleria Aica Andrea Ingenito is pleased to announce you the collective exhibition “Word on Paper- Dialoghi su carta” that will be inaugurated November 30th 2017 at 6.30 pm in via Cappella Vecchia 8/A (P.zza dei Martiri) in Naples until 20 January 2018.
The Gallery in the last years has particularly followed the original production on paper, unique and multiple works, promoting its poetics and language through the eyes of the great Masters like Lucio Fontana, Roy Lichtestein, Mario Schifano, Andy Warhol and contemporaries such as Giosetta Fioroni, Fathi Hassan, Judy Pfaff.
The strong commitment of the gallery has been actualized through numerous projects, following with particular attention this segment of the market, participating in specialized exhibitions such as WopArt-Lugano and through the setting up of collective and personal exhibitions dedicated to contemporary artists who have developed and innovated this strand of artistic production, like the famous exhibition dedicated to works on paper of the 60s by Giosetta Fioroni held in Naples in December 2015, exactly two years ago, or the Judy Pfaff exhibition last summer in Capri and, and finally, Fathi Hassan, recently concluded in Milan.
In fact, this production is finding increasing interest in the international art market, such as witnesses the growth of fairs dedicated to production on paper, as for example: WopArt Lugano, The Salon Art + Design in New York and the unpublished specific section on design in the last edition of Artissima in Turin, as well as in the main auction houses. The exhibition “World on Paper – Dialogues on paper” was born as a need for the ultimate synthesis of this research and arises the ambitious goal of making the great masters historicized with the artists who have innovated and continued the dialogue about production on paper in the language of contemporaneity, among which some of the leading exponents of Naples.
The collective runs through the decades from the ’50s to the present, intentionally involving many exponents that have made paper one of the most incisive expressions of their poetics, like the writings of Fathi Hassan, the material contamination by Judy Pfaff or the explosions of color by Lello Masucci, because “it is worth mentioning only what is not clear, to write about what is beyond writing “.
Among the presented artists we mention the presence of Mario Schifano, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Josef Albers, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtestein, Cy Twombly, Gastone Novelli, Jannis Kounellis, Franco Angeli, Achilles Perilli, Mimmo Paladino, Sergio Fermariello, Fathi Hassan, Salvatore Manzi, Lello Masucci, Judy Pfaff.
