ALTRE NOTTI A ROMA
April 23rd – June 8th 2011
Omar Galliani’s solo exhibition features a mix of old and new pieces, many created during one of the artist’s numerous stints in Rome. “At night”, we read among the titles, in the “night of drawing” we witness the appearance of his “Siamese Drawings” and the “New Roman Tablets”, plus the artist’s unpublished sketchbooks produced during his numerous travels around the world.
Claudio Proietti has invited the artist to reimagine the exhibition space of his gallery Artrtibù, the result is a journey we see unfolding though the gallery rooms, chapters that open and close like the pages in a book, moving from black and white to colour.
As a very special guest of this exhibition, internationally renowned sculptor Michelangelo Galliani, son of Omar, presents one of his suggestive works in each of the gallery rooms.
