Marco Meneguzzo explains the exhibition “iononrappresentonullaiodipingo”, held in my gallery in 1973, which was perhaps the first in which was revealed the kind of thinking about painting that today is known as “Analytical Painting”, and that then also had the names of “New Painting” or “Pittura pittura”.

, published by Radius Books, with texts by Louis Grachos, Jonathon Keats, Kenneth Baker and David Simpson. The book is an explanatory summary of the artist's works created between 1965 and 2015.

In 2011 Vincenzo Castella
and Hema Upadhyay
met during an exhibition and were able to discuss their respective works: large cities observed through Castella’s anthropological eye, and Indian megacities coagulated in the social observations of Upadhyay as seen in her large installations about multi-ethnic slums.
The affinity between the two artists was such that the natural conclusion of their conversation was the promise to share an exhibition in which the idea of cities was to be examined. The project could not be completed due to Hema Upadhyay’s sudden passing away, but Vincenzo Castella wanted to fulfil his promise and to pay tribute to Hema by creating a show next to the Indian artist’s large-scale work Where the bees suck, there suck I...
: it can be seen in the rooms of Studio la Città until 18 June.
It was in this way that Il Corpo Della Città
, was born, the result of the promise that was made and has now been honoured: a back-to-back exhibition of works by two artists, works that question and observe each other close-up.

is one of the protagonists of the exhibition unsettling green - focussing on a color
which opens on 22 May, at 11:30 a.m.
, at Marta Museum Herford
What happens when we see green – instead of, for example, red? In this first exhibition on a “disturbing” colour, its topicality, its contemporary functions and meanings are at the centre of an extremely exciting presentation. Different aspects and interconnections are presented in painting, installations and video, giving rise to a lively panorama of the contemporary relevance or a colour which is as everyday as it is irritating.
May 23 – August 14, 2016 | Marta Museum Herford, Herford
On Friday 3 June
at 6:00 p.m.
opens the exhibition Capri B&B - Behind and Beyond
with works of Raffaela Mariniello
and Eugenio Tibaldi
and curated by Adriana Rispoli
. The exhibition takes place in the beautiful framework of the Certosa di San Giacomo
Raffaela Mariniello (Naples 1962) and Eugenio Tibaldi (Alba 1977) are artists who don’t belong to the same generation, nor did they grow up in the same city; they also both depart from esthetics which are quite different. However their work has the same kind of starting-point and their research shows affinity, such as the fascination for the peripheries, the attention for the microcosmoses and an idea of beauty that overturns every common feeling.
June 4 - July 24, 2016 | Certosa di San Giacomo - Quarto del Priore, Capri
Un racconto in sei stanze (A story in six rooms)
is the title of the exhibition, curated by Angela Madesani
, where some artworks by 8 international artists
(Subodh Gupta, Herbert Hamak, Jacob Hashimoto, Riyas Komu, Hiroyuki Masuyama, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Roberto Pugliese and Hema Upadhyay) will be show. This is the second time that the sixteenth century rooms of Palazzo Barbò have presented "stories" by gallery owners. The gallery proprietor, Hélène de Franchis
, who over the years has organised many shows in museums and other public spaces, and who has taken part, among the first in Italy, in numerous international art fairs, explains her intervention in this fascinating Renaissance building: "There are artists with whom I have worked for many years and others I have worked with for fewer. But their works all interest me and, for various reasons, also define the story of the gallery. For this show I decided to put large-scale installations here because there would have had no sense to place small works in it: they would have disappeared in the space. And, as the title says, this is a racconto, a story. The story of certain of my choices, of my taste, which is far removed from fashions."
May 16 - July 17, 2016 | Palazzo Barbò, Torre Pallavicina (Bergamo)

, shows her artwork Kamchatka’16

will open the exhibition Dalla via Emilia al mondo (From the via Emilia to the World)
: room after room, the work ranges from high quality photojournalism to the most creative approach introducing topical themes, from a lyrical gaze to a more engaged position.

, who will show some of his artworks from the outer space
