Curated by Andrea Bruciati
Palazzo Bonvicini, Santa Croce 2164, Venice
Opening Friday 31 May 2013 at 6pm

31 May – 29 September 2013

New exhibition project showcasing the latest generation
of international painters.

Two exhibition sites: via Torino in Mestre, and Palazzo Bonvicini in Venice

From 24 May to 29 September 2013, in conjunction with the 55th Venice International Art Exhibition, Galleria Massimodeluca proposes its first show to feature international artists entitled, Yellowing of the Lunar Consciousness.

The exhibition, curated by Andrea Bruciati, will be held in two sites: the Mestre based gallery (via Torino 105/q) will be working in partnership with Celeste Network in Palazzo Bonvicini in Venice (Santa Croce 2164). There will also be two openings: Thursday 23 May at Galleria Massimodeluca and Thursday 30 May at Palazzo Bonvicini.

The exhibition, which follows on from exhibitions focused on photography (Enten-Eller, Teresa Cos) and performance art (The Crisis and a Crisis in the Life of an Actress, Nicola Ruben Montini) will bring painting once more to the fore at Massimodeluca. The artists who have been invited to participate in the exhibition, will be placed in dialectical relationship, inviting comparisons of their artistic vision and work, whether they use the most traditional of materials, the canvas, or other supports.

The artists chosen to participate were all born in the 1980s and include: Paola Angelini, Marco Basta, Juliette Bonneviot, Mihut Boscu Kafchin, Melissa Gordon, Dario Pecoraro, Gianni Politi, James Ryan, Giovanni Sartori Braido, Vito Stassi and Joris Van De Moortel. The Galleria Massimodeluca exhibition is a project of exchange, communication and close collaboration, placing artists who have yet to participate in an exhibition of this scale alongside artists who have already been on the international exhibition circuit for some time.

In Bruciati’s curatorial project, the painting is seen as a dialectical space between the artistic ideal and its actual painted form, a transformation which involves both alchemy and craftsmanship and which is lived by the artists as an ongoing investigation into the practice of painting itself, and so into their own personal mythology.

“During the Biennale, Venice becomes the meeting point for the world of contemporary art, and Galleria Massimodeluca wants to offer an exhibition with an international flavour during this period,” –explains the Gallery’s manager, Marina Bastianello –“while still focusing on showcasing and promoting artists under the age of 30.”

The Yellowing of the Lunar Consciousness exhibition has been created in association with the Juliette Jongma (Amsterdam), Galeria Sabot (Cluj-Napoca), CO2 (Rome) and Monica De Cardenas (Milan) galleries.

Media partner: Celeste Network.
