Paolo Novelli. La Fotografia come differenza

opening Thursday 3 October, until November 3, 2019

Triennale, Viale Alemagna 6, Milano – IT


With a selection of 40 images from five projects by the photographer Paolo Novelli, the exhibition focuses on a creative period from 2002 to 2013, illustrating the origins and consolidation of a personal style. The series of images reveals an essential approach to photography, freed from time and place, which Giovanni Gastel has described as the “photography of solitude”. The other, technical aspect highlights the timeless vision of Novelli, who adopts just a single discipline: that of analogue photography.

The works are on film, in black and white, with no use of flash or filters, and printed by hand. To create these analogue photographs, he takes a premeditated, anarchical approach to the use of this camera. The selected projects examine the main theme of Novelli’s artistic research, which is that of incommunicability: closed doors, tunnels, mists, windows and death chase each other through his projects over a period of little more than a decade.

The exhibition “Le Monde Selon Roger Ballen“, the largest retrospective to date of the South African photographer’s work, returns to the Halle Saint Pierre in Paris to focus on the fifty years of this extraordinary artist’s career.

Haim Steinbach. every single day

until September 15, 2019

Museion, Piero Siena, 1, Bolzano – IT

Steinbach has worked on the concept of display since the start of his artistic career and his art is expressed through the selection, composition and presentation of everyday objects. At the centre of his research there is also a contemporary comparison with key modernist elements, such as form, colour and composition. The exhibition at Museion, which has been created in close collaboration with the artist, reflects this research and therefore calls into question both the way objects are presented and the perspective of the viewer.

Group exhibition: Straperetana

opening July 6, until August 10, 2019

Associazione culturale Straperetana, via delle Piagge 8, Pereto – IT

The name of the exhibition project, straperetana, alludes to a dimension proudly “of the country”, but extended, amplified: the artists’ interventions will be placed in relation with the place, in an attempt at dialogue between contemporary and ancient, which will offer a new reading of a context already full of history.
