Opening and book launch on 18 May 2017, 6-9 pm, in presence of the artist.
Michel Mouffe (1957, Brussels) explores the foundations of painting by challenging its limits. As he uses space to establish a dialogue, Mouffe’s paintings are not just flat. An iron frame underneath the canvas shapes the surface, giving the work a sculptural character. Through a contrast of surfaces, the background bec...
“Together with Director Daniela Ferretti we’ve made a series of five exhibitions in Palazzo Fortuny exploring the transversal links between philosophy, science, music, history, creative heritage and art. As was the case with our previous exhibitions, Artempo, Infinitum, TRA and Proportio, Intuition is another concept that has fascinated me all my life and which we wanted to study more scienti...

Among the performances during the Armory Show Sadaharu Horio will be using his Art Vending Machine:
Inside a self-made “vending machine”, composed of discarded materials, Horio makes One Minute Drawings for the visitors after they have inserted one dollar into the “machine”. Horio’s drawings are made on the spot, triggered by the viewer.
For this year’s edition of The Armory Show, we will devote our stand to a solo project of Sadaharu Horio, the youngest member of the Japanese avant-garde group Gutai, which he joined in 1966. Horio’s art is the extension of his day-to-day living, and its focus is on the act of creation itself. It resides in the ordinary and is encountered by surprise. Horio invites the viewer to participate a...

"What makes a painting retain intense appeal to the viewer even after all narratives and associations have
been stripped away from it? Something that flows powerfully and freely like a waterfall, making the viewer
forget everything for a time, stealing his or her soul away - something beyond logic that draws people in.
That's what I'm after."
(Masatoshi Masanobu, 1954)

As the closing event of the BOZAR exhibition A Feverish Era in Japanese Art. Expressionism in the 1950's and 1960's, this screening / talk focuses on a pioneering voice that led the next generation of Japanese contemporary art.
