Almost a figure, Almost a shape | Exhibition catalog | 21/08/2014

The art that we like

A relationship based on seriousness and coherence, arising from personal coexistence that has been getting more frequent, culminating with the carrying out of this exhibition.
This is why, talking at the end of last year, we had the idea of bringing together two worlds that are so different yet so near for one single reason: art – for all the experience that expands our world and our lives.
On suggesting this meeting, we reaffirm the conviction that art is art and that we should, yes indeed, open ourselves to looking, seeing and viewing everything that is good and which is around us. If we do not do this, we shall lose.
We knew that this would be a major challenge, and this we immediately had the idea of inviting Lorenzo Mammì, a thinker for whom we have great respect and that, without any doubt, would be able to analyse the agreements and disagreements that the “popular” and “erudite” worlds provide for us.
If our idea was to expand and bring new information, we were sure that all the artists and galleries involved would be honoured to participate in this new venture. And so happens Almost a Figure, Almost a Shape.
