Art Basel 2020

COLLOQUIUM
Rodolfo Aricò, Carlo Ciussi, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Riccardo De Marchi, Mario Nigro, Salvatore Scarpitta, Günter Umberg


The A arte Invernizzi gallery will present at Art Basel 2020 a selection of works from the exhibition Colloquium: Günter Umberg and the Italian Art presented at the gallery in Milan - occasion in which the German artist was also curator. The project creates a conceptual dialogue which relates the work by Günter Umberg with some of the leading exponents of Italian art in recent decades such as Rodolfo Aricò, Carlo Ciussi, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Riccardo De Marchi, Mario Nigro and Salvatore Scarpitta.
The booth is designed as a walk-through space where the works enter into a relationship with their setting, by virtue of the physical value of the actual paint that forms them.
This selection illustrates the knowledge of the Italian art scene that Günter Umberg built up from the 1970s onwards, as well as the works of exponents of Italian painting. At the heart of every artistic idea Günter Umberg sees a dialogue: with space, with the viewer, with other works, with the past and the present, and with the world and reality, so that the aesthetic and perceptive experience is never closed and ended, but rather changes, evolves and comes to life in an incessant experiential process.
