.:. art / between Fausto and Anselm 
February 23 through July 30, 2023
Thu-Sun 10:30am-8:30pm

The original idea was to curate a retrospective of works by Gian Maria Tosatti (Rome, 1980), but in the end this looked a trivial solution. Perhaps it would have been an impossible solution, indeed, because the artist's interventions have almost invariably been site-specific in urban environments (İstanbul, Catania, New York, Riga, Odesa...). Now / Here / Nowhere.
.:. So what? Tosatti created original works for the Hangar, not necessarily site-specific but certainly on purpose. What's more, he adopted a technique that was new to him, albeit very ancient and archetypal for the languages of art: painting. And here is Tosatti the painter, for the first time.
.:. The result is set up in semi-darkness, even if the choice not to set up in natural light has depended only on the desire to lead visitors to introspection. So meet large intense canvases, almost Venetian teleri, that the Hangar is exhibiting halfway between the rust of Fausto Melotti (outside) and the metaphysics of Anselm Kiefer (inside). Not to be missed.
