BLACK LIGHT ART
Civic Art Gallery of Como – Via Armando Diaz, 84, 22100 Como
TUESDAY-SUNDAY FROM 4 NOV 2017 TO 7 JAN 2018, H. 10.00 AM TO 6.00 PM
The exhibition ‘Black Light Art: la luce che colora il buio’ will focus on black light as an expressive medium that is able to involve the public in an innovative sensorial experience, where reality shows itself like many different constantly evolving shapes. A dynamic cycle of white and black lights and deep darkness will transform the surrounding, giving the possibility to the exposed operas to dress up with different surprising colours, shapes and spaces.
The curators of the exhibition are Gisella Gellini, architect and professor of Light Art and Light Design in the Design School Politecnico in Milan, and Fabio Agrifoglio, president of Mario Agrifoglio Foundation. The exhibition spaces and video projects have been entrusted to the exhibition designer Gaetano Corica.
The exhibition will show the artworks of many different artists, from Mario Agrifoglio to LeoNilde Carabba, Nino Alfieri, Claudio “Sek” De Luca, Nicola Evangelisti, Maria Cristiana Fioretti and Olga Serezhina.
The experience will be accompanied by the musics composed by Irlando Danieli, extracted from the album “Undae Temporis”, and inspired by the themes of the exhibition.
