Young gallery, the young curator, young artists. The collective SEA MILAN which opens Wednesday November 6 2 in via Maroncelli in Milan It aims to bring the sea to the city. Why Gagetti and Luisa Maddalena Gesess, mother and daughter with a passion for art, founder and director of the one and the other curator, preferred to move and open a tunnel to the sea.
Their NOGALLERYOpened in 2012, in fact, it is not in Milan but in Santa Margherita Ligure and outside the fashionable circuits that incorporate today also art, is home to talented artists at last to increase the community of young collectors. But over the summer, they felt the urgency, in that same Milan where initially they walked away, to carry out their project, which sounds a bit 'as a challenge. In fact, what they care about particularly is to give space to young people cultivating their talent right from school, well ahead and opening to the adult world.
The proposal to "bring the sea in the city" was welcomed by five artists already close to NOGALLERY born in five different cities, Barchitta Alessio, Andrea Bruschi, Giuliano Cataldo Giancotti and David Marega, but all from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, except Helene Cortese, Genoese artist, who creates an ideal bridge to the seat by the sea. But THE SEA OF MILAN might be smog? Are the canals or its hidden rivers? And 'the sea of people moving in traffic?
The exhibition curated by Maddalena Gesess highlights the fresh talent of young artists that reflect on a Milan interpreted as: A SINGLE JOURNEY INFINITE that draw starting from OLONA river between these TRAME, shake! Through the titles of works an imaginary sea it turns designed to Santa Margherita and presented in Milan in a temporary gallery between buns and wine from Liguria.
The philosophy NOGALLERY is look for the talent in young people from academies - just graduates or even undergraduates coming mainly from the Academies of Fine Arts in Milan, Turin and Genoa - look out to the world by supporting them in this complex shift by offering them the chance to express themselves without laces and sell their works at affordable prices (maximum two thousand euro) so as to begin to be valued in the art market. Opening NOGALLERY the goal of Luisa as she says is to "create a space, a crossroads of thoughts mingling and enter into a relationship a public open to innovations with young artists who with enthusiasm and energy are able to get involved against all logic careerism and consumerism ". His daughter Mad has joined from the beginning the project with enthusiasm, because for her "art is an indispensable primary asset to shape the future."
