The exhibition project that MAC will exhibit at Context 2018 is dedicated to the work of three contemporary Italian artists: Giorgio Laveri, Fabrizio Dusi and Paolo Manazza. Artists of different generations who share a strong interest in the dynamics of the society around them and a deep research on the materials they use in their own artistic expressions.
The focus of the stand will be focused on a new version of the work of Fabrizio Dusi "Blablabla", a large installation of neon lights that make up a bright American flag, symbol of the fierce criticism that the artist moves to the excess of words, characteristic of the our time, but made with light hand and bright colors. Like the "BlaBlaBla" of 2017, the last edition of the fair has focused the attention of visitors and the media, the new work is connected to the theme dear to Dusi of the inability of modern society to communicate. Will also be exposed new works of the artist made with the most common expressive techniques in his work such as ceramics and "crazy" painted on large industrial tarps.
Paolo Manazza will present a new work on paper of exceptional dimensions, 420x106 cm, entitled "Slipping in Sky", a new research by the artist on the infinite possibilities of painting. With this work Manazza pushes himself into the bowels of painting, questioning himself on the strength and the meaning of color with respect to the concept of form. A search for color that concerns a more existential and spiritual dimension that is an integral part of the needs of our time.
The works of Manazza have been very successful in previous editions of Art Miami attracting the attention of important collectors and curators, some of them are also present in several important collections of Florida.
Giorgio Laveri will present instead a new giant ceramic sculpture, a common object of the urban reality that surrounds it, a "Truka" lipstick covered with studs and glazed with pure platinum, 180 cm tall. It is a new challenge against ceramic mery to give this object a new dignity using the charm of glazed ceramic and precious metals.
