For the 10th anniversary of the opening of the gallery in 2006, ProjectB is pleased to present a group show with current works by 12 representative artists in the gallery’s history. Works - including paintings, sculptures and photographs – narrate the path of the gallery in it’s ten years of activity. Research, technique and interaction with the exhibition space are the themes that have guided the choices, developed through the alternation of highly acclaimed and emerging Italian and foreign artists.
With a new oil paint by Jake & Dinos Chapman, a
Marc Quinn’s sculpture and Keith Tyson works on aluminium, the first room
reflects the progress of the early years of the gallery, founded in Milan in
2006 based on the idea of Emanuele Bonomi of bringing the exponents of “Young
British Art” to Italy. A project that soon expanded into other geographical
areas, from Spain to Iran to China – through two exhibitions on the Ash
Paintings of Zhang Huan – with the aim of publicizing the work of artists
already famous in their own countries, but still not well known on an
international level, as in the case of the photography of Dionisio Gonzalez.
The gallery has always paid close attention to the new
generations, with an observatory directed by Carlotta Loverini, in order to
give visibility to the work of young European artists and curators: examples
include the recent exhibition by the English painter Tom Anholt and the first
solo show in Italy by the French photographer Noémie Goudal. Exhibitions that
have often marked the beginning of a long path of collaboration and interesting
debates, such as that on the use of color seen in the work of Ivan De Menis and
Annie Morris, narrated on this occasion by the works shown in the second room,
including the paintings of Hugo Wilson and of the Scottish painter Caroline
Walker, whose third solo show in Italy will be held at the gallery next year.
