Agora Gallery is pleased to present From Italy with Love, the first in a series of annual exhibitions featuring works by contemporary Italian artists. Including painting, collage, photography, and sculpture, this exhibition features recent works by Nello Petrucci; Cristiano Mazzoli; RABARAMA; Maurizio Zafret; Paolo Domenichini; and Angelica Pedini. Through this multi-year series of exhibitions, Agora Gallery will highlight the richness and breadth of contemporary Italian art, a genre that is underrepresented but acutely desired in New York City. This iteration is organized in collaboration with Contemply, Florence, Italy.
The diverse works featured in From Italy with Love are connected through an innate engagement with figuration, a tradition inextricable from the country’s history. Through distinctive approaches, the artists in this exhibition re-envision the patrimony of figurative art and communicate varied perspectives on the body. Fragmentation, abstraction, and deconstruction feature prominently in these works that depict form but also capture mood and attitude. Isolation, enclosure, and injustice are depicted alongside narratives of ebullience and celebration.
From Italy with Love will open with a reception Thursday, June 14, 2018 6-8 PM and will remain on view until June 21, 2018.
