Remo Salvadori, born in 1947 in Cerreto Guidi, near Vinci in the province of Florence, currently lives and works in Milan. Salvadori’s important solo exhibitions include those at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice (2005); Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato (1997); Magasin,Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Grenoble (1991); and the Italian Cultural Institute and The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (1987).
Marco Bagnoli, born in 1949 in Empoli, has long been a presence at major international exhibitions including the Venice Biennial (1982, 1993, 1997), Documenta in Kassel (1982 and 1992) and Sonsbeek in Arnhem (1986).
Domenico Bianchi, born in 1955 in Rome, lives and works there today. Bianchi attended the city’s Accademia di Belle Arti, and at age 22 made his debut with a solo exhibition at Salvatore Ala Gallery in New York. In the years that followed, his work was shown at the Galerie Swart in Amsterdam, Yvon Lambert in Paris, Gian Enzo Sperone in Rome and New York, LA Louver Gallery in Los Angeles and Galleria Christian Stein in Turin and Milan.
The materials utilized by Marco Bagnoli, Domenico Bianchi and Remo Salvadori do not stray far from the commonplace pre-industrial objects that defined the “poor art” movement, but these pieces seem to transcend - adding allusions to the spiritual, the cosmic and the soul.
This exchange is the first between the two Hudson Valley arts organizations. Garrison Art Center and Magazzino Italian Art are dedicated to promoting the exhibition and enjoyment of art through educational and cultural experiences. This exhibition will feature select works on loan from the Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu Collection. Olnick and Spanu founded Magazzino Italian Art, which opened in 2017, and is home to one of the most comprehensive collections of Post-war Italian Art and Design in the United States.
Salvadori, Bagnoli and Bianchi represent the next generation, following the Arte Povera movement, and are examples of the artistic talent flourishing in Italy today. These three artists were featured during the Magazzino Italian Art inaugural season. This exhibition at Garrison Art Center is an opportunity to view additional works by these prominent contemporary artists.
