The A arte Invernizzi gallery presents the exhibition Colloquium: Günter Umberg and the Italian Art. On this occasion, the German artist is also the curator, with an exhibition in which a conceptual dialogue relates his works with those of some of the leading exponents of Italian art in recent decades.
The exhibition 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.
As Paolo Bolpagni writes, “Günter Umberg’s painting creates perceptive experiences, while also leading to philosophical implications. His highly particular monochromes do not occupy the spaces, but rather bring them to life, giving them meaning and concentration. These are works that, when brought together to relate to a particular place – and in this case also to works by other artists chosen on the basis of expressive correspondences, affinities and kinships – create organisms that resonate widely, constructing and defining their setting”.
A volume will be published on the occasion of the exhibition. It will include a conversation between Paolo Bolpagni and Günter Umberg, who investigate the relationships and links between the works on show in the exhibition spaces – including those of Rodolfo Aricò, Enrico Castellani, Carlo Ciussi, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Piero Dorazio, Lucio Fontana, Mario Nigro, Salvatore Scarpitta, Nelio Sonego and Emilio Vedova – reflecting on them and establishing visual and conceptual interactions.all images © the gallery and the artist(s)
