ME by Meliá, the brand of the Meliá Hotels International group, spokesperson for initiatives related to contemporary art and culture, welcomes the exhibition by Emilio Cavallini "Geometric Abstraction" to ME Milan Il Duca: a journey into the universe of the artist, a tribute to creativity and color, composed of more than thirty works, created from the seventies to the present.
ME Milan Il Duca, 5 star luxury hotel located in the heart of the fashion capital, in Piazza della Repubblica, is an exclusive, cosmopolitan, contemporary, design-oriented place, which offers its guests, the Milanese and visitors to the city, a rich cultural program, The Culture Collective, which supports local creators, generating powerful synergies with the city.
Until the end of March, the hotel opens its doors to the creative history of Emilio Cavallini, exhibiting his works in the common areas, such as the lobby and library, to continue along the central corridor to the Radio Rooftop Bar, where the creations of the artist complete and blend with the exclusive and exciting view of the Milan skyline.
The exhibition, curated by Greta Zuccali and Luca Timpani, celebrates the love for color and the search for harmony and perfection that Emilio Cavallini places in a thread, the nylon thread, which is ennobled to an art object, a raw material of exception.
The artist and textile entrepreneur, founder of Stilnovo di San Miniato, a company that produces fancy stockings exported all over the world, has continuously cultivated his passion for art, creating unique works contaminated by fashion, mathematics and architecture.
The protagonists of his creations are unusual materials borrowed from the world of fashion such as nylon thread, printed polyamide fabrics, the same stockings and spools for yarns. The planning of his research starts from the basic elements of geometry, points, lines, squares, triangles, circles, organized in three-dimensional space according to mathematical laws. An avant-garde work, inserted in the artistic expressions of the second half of the '900 in an optical-kinetic, analytical and generative direction.
From the 2010, Cavallini consecrated himself entirely to art and, in February 2011, the Milan Triennale dedicated a large retrospective to him that finally allowed the public to learn about the works. At the same time, even at the non-profit exhibition space Interface HUB / ART it is possible to admire the creative path of Emilio Cavallini. Here, in the bistro area, there are also six stalactites made of nylon thread of a height of four meters that contribute to the dialogue with the public, in a mysterious atmosphere.
