|On January 21, 2017 Galleria Varsi will present Livelli, the second edition of the exhibition entirely dedicated to silkscreen printing. The project of the show stems from the desire to investigate an old printing technique which has played a major role in art history, and to experiment its possibilities.
In the past year the artists 2501, Alberonero, Alice Pasquini, Andreco, Aris, Borondo, Ciredz, Diamond, Egs, Etnik, Francesco Barbieri, Giorgio Bartocci, Hitnes, Imos, Nelio, Nemco, Pakal, Sawe, SBAGLIATO, Sepe, Solo, Tellas, Vesod, Unga (BFC), have produced a silkscreen each in collaboration with the lab 56 Fili, directed by Arturo Amitrano, a young Roman artisan who in recent years has made himself known for his creative and avant-garde spirit.
The twenty-four artists involved in Livelli have in common a strong link with public spaces, the sites for their favorite expressions and a source of constant inspiration.
The new works created for the exhibition are the product of the artists’ current research and the result of a dialogue between the languages of each artist and the silkscreen printing process that has allowed them to develop their own aesthetics each in their own singular way, exploring innovative formal possibilities.
All works denote the variety of technical solutions that silkscreen printing can offer and the different types of printable media, other than paper: from the classical art reproductions to bold color experiments, to a commingling of photochemicals and prints on silk and plexiglass.
