Antonia Jannone Disegni di Architettura Draw Art Fair London 2019
Antonia Jannone focuses on the artistic element of architectural drawings as a way to break out from more rigorous approaches to planning and design. For Draw Art Fair London 2019 the gallery will exhibit works by Aldo Rossi, Michele De Lucchi, Sergei Tchoban and Mario Bacciocchi
Antonia Jannone started her journey as gallerist in 1977 focussing on a form of artistic expression that had, until then, not yet found a dedicated space: architecture. She curated her first solo exhibitions of illustrious architects, namely: Leon Krier, Ernesto Bruno Lapadula, Giovanni Muzio, Aldo Rossi, Alberto Sartoris, Ettore Sottsass, Stefan Wewerka. At that time architectural drawing started emerging from its strictly technical function to become an independent form of art, expressing a poetic concept of the world in its own right (Aldo Rossi, Massimo Scolari, Ettore Sottsass, Arduino Cantafora) in a similar way to G.P.Pannini, Joli or Hubert Robert. Her most recent shows have been dedicated to Mario Botta, Andrea Branzi, Alessandro Busci, Aldo Cibic, Michele De Lucchi, Vittorio Gregotti, Steven Holl, Ugo La Pietra, Alessandro Mendini, Marco Palmieri, Gaetano Pesce, Franco Raggi, Umberto Riva, Alvaro Siza, Ettore Sottsass, Sergei Tchoban, Velasco Vitali and Marco Zanuso Jr.
