"The art district 7 galleries in Vanchiglia" by Olga Gambari - la Repubblica - December 21, 2017

thursday 21 december 2017 - 10:28

By Olga Gambari


Vanchiglia old village close to the center, continues to grow in the name of a vertical concrete and creativity, so far away from gentrification.
An intersection of streets where they follow each other on the street and in the courtyards of artists, laboratories, artisans and locals along with historic shops.
In this microcosm, where once lived in Carlo Mollino and Carol Rama, seven galleries have taken their home over time, creating an ideal walk through the neighborhood...Read more.

sunday 22 january 2017 - 13:28


" Deve sempre ritornare il mattino? Mai non finirà la violenza di ciò che è terrestre? Un nefasto affaccendarsi divora il volo celeste della notte ( ..) E eterna è la durata del sonno. (...) Solo i folli ti disconoscono e ignorano un sonno diverso dall'ombra (...) Non ti sentono nell'aureo fiotto del grappolo, nell'olio prodigioso del mandorlo e nel bruno succo del papavero". ( Novalis , "Inni alla notte" II)...

" Crowds Flock to Art Miami and CONTEXT, Where Blue-Chip Art Reigns " Art Net News - By Eileen Kinsella, November 30, 2016
sunday 11 december 2016 - 09:50

By Eileen Kinsella

A few blocks north of Art Miami, the large new locale for sister fair CONTEXT Art Miami, also in a bespoke white tent, was heating up as well. The fair, founded in 2012, focuses on emerging and mid-career artists.

Dealer Marco Sassone, owner of Metroquadro Gallery in Turin, was showing, among other works, conceptual photographs by Palestinian artist Steve Sabella, whose work focuses on creating a new reality in the face of conflict. Like other dealers, Sassone noted the overflow and repeat visitors from Art Miami who keep returning to the fair, which he has participated in for the last four years.

This year, CONTEXT included a special focus on galleries from Seoul. Curator Jihyun Cha of Artpark Gallery, which showed work by Joonsung Bae and Yongjin Kim, said a move to CONTEXT from SCOPE satellite fair last year had been motivated partly by the appeal of attracting the Art Miami crowd.

" How to Make the Most of the Frieze Week Art Fairs " The New York Times - By Daniel McDermon - May 4, 2016
sunday 12 june 2016 - 10:03


A tsunami of contemporary and modern art is arriving in New York City this week, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Running from now through the weekend are at least nine art fairs, with work by thousands of artists and dealers from dozens of countries. That's in addition to the city's standing array of art offerings, comprising hundreds of gallery and museum shows.

Not to mention the boatloads of public art on view.

There is far more than one person could see, much of it up for just a few days before it's trundled off to someone's private collection.

For a nonexpert, with an appetite for art but a limited amount of time and money, this situation calls for careful strategizing. So we asked some veteran fairgoers for tips on how to make the most of it.

"Dress to impress — the people-watching is half the fun," said Melena Ryzik, a culture reporter who has covered several art fairs for The New York Times. "And don't be shy about engaging the gallery assistants; often their seeming aloofness is just a mask for boredom, and they are happy to answer questions."

Martha Schwendener, a critic for The Times, warned against trying too hard to see everything. "Even if you feel that you have been extraordinarily conscientious and thorough — and even if you're an expert art viewer — one of your friends (or maybe one of your frenemies) is going to say: ‘Oh, you didn't see X? That was incredible! You really missed out.'"

Other suggestions: Arrive early. The crowds get thicker in the afternoon. Your phone's battery will not last all day, so carry a charger. And note that while admission prices can be steep, many fairs offer discounts for students, seniors or young people.

Now, what sort of experience are you looking for? Read more....
