The “Giulio Paolini. Teoria delle apparenze” exhibition is now open to the public at the Galleria Fumagalli in Milan until April 14th 2018.
Comprising the artist’s complete oeuvre from 1969 to 2015 the exhibition aims to give an overview of his work and the selection of pieces on display presents a purely conceptual area of research divided into different themes ranging from the perspective paintings of the 1970’s through the theatrical and literary dimensions of the 1980’s to the most recent studies on the author’s identity and his condition as a spectator.
The birth of Giulio Paolini’s artistic research can be traced back to the 1960’s and “Disegno geometrico”, a small canvas on which the artist depicted the squaring of the surface. From this moment on, Paolini would define his own personal stylistic code which would lead him to develop a process of decoding that was close to signs, visual geometry and mathematics. The Genoese artist explored the metaphysical nature of artistic work through installations, drawing, collage, plaster casts and photography.
With the exhibition “Giulio Paolini. Teoria di apparenze” the Fumagalli Gallery is paying tribute to one of the most representative artistic figures of avant-garde Italian research.
