Macro Bagnoli, Domenico Bianchi, Remo Salvadori Opens at The Garrison Art Center in Garrison, New York in March 2018.
Garrison, New York — Garrison Art Center, in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, is pleased to announce an exhibition featuring works from Italian contemporary artists Marco Bagnoli, Domenico Bianchi and Remo Salvadori. The exhibition will be on view in The Riverside Galleries March 10 through April 8, 2018, with an opening reception on Saturday, March 10 from 5 to 7pm.
This exhibition marks the first partnership between the two Hudson Valley organizations, whose aim is to promote art appreciation and enjoyment through cultural programming and educational experiences. This exhibition will feature select works from the Olnick Spanu Collection. Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu are the founders of Magazzino Italian Art, which opened in June 2017, and is home to one of the most comprehensive collections of Post-war Italian Art in the United States. Bagnoli, Bianchi and Salvadori represent the next generation following the Arte Povera movement, and are examples of the artistic talent flourishing in Italy today. These three artists were featured during the Magazzino Italian Art inaugural season. This exhibition at Garrison Art Center is an opportunity to view additional works by these prominent contemporary artists and delve deeper in their artistic practice.
Born in Empoli in 1949 , Bagnoli has long been a presence at major international exhibitions including the Venice Biennial (1982, 1993,1997), Documenta in Kassel (1982 and 1992), and Sonsbeek in Arnhem (1986). From the mid-1970s to today, Marco Bagnoli has had solo exhibitions at prominent institutions like De Appel, Amsterdam (1980 and 1984), Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneve (1985), Castello di Rivoli (1992), Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea ‘Luigi Pecci’, Prato (1995) and Madre, Naples (2015). He pursues his own very personal path, creating site-specific installations in places of exceptional artistic, architectural, religious and spiritual value. His works can be found in important international collections.
Born in Rome in 1955, where he lives and works today, Bianchi attended the city’s Accademia di Belle Arti, and at age 22 made his debut with a solo exhibition at Salvatore Ala Gallery in New York. In the years that followed, his work was shown at the Galerie Swart in Amsterdam, Yvon Lambert in Paris, Gian Enzo Sperone in Rome and New York, L.A. Louver Gallery in Los Angeles and Galleria Christian Stein in Turin and Milan. Bianchi’s first museum exhibition was at the Museo of Rivoli in 1989. He exhibited in the Italian Pavilion at the 45th Venice Biennale (1993), in Arte e Alchimia at the 42nd Venice Biennale (1986), and at Aperto 84 at the 41st Venice Biennale (1984).
Born in Cerreto Guidi, near Vinci in the province of Florence, in 1947, Salvadori currently lives and works in Milan. An exponent of the generation following Arte Povera and Conceptual Art, Salvadori opens up a new space in the conception and formulation of the work, in which art is experienced as a “revelation”. The attention directed toward time and space in his work, as in his own life, intersects with reflections upon the essence of color, on the nature of pure metal, and on the role of the observer. Salvadori’s important solo exhibitions include those at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice (2005); Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato (1997); Magasin, Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Grenoble (1991); and the Italian Cultural Institute and The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (1987).
