Baglioni Gallery in partnership with Le Dame Hospitality Art just launched a new space for Italian contemporary art at the prestigious Baglioni Hotel in Kensington.
The new project provides for 2019 – 2020 a rich program of exhibitions and thematic installations that will dialogue with the most important events in town, as in the case of the recent installation Solid by Alice Padovani exhibited at Baglioni Hotel during the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
“It is an honour to collaborate with a brand such as Baglioni Hotels – says Cristina Cellini Antonini – with its elegance, the hotel offers an Italian experience to which attention and love for contemporary art have just been renewed. Just like at home, works are an essential element for the spirit and the mind.”
The exhibition is organized in two different spaces: the first with a completely feminine character – the Lobby – sees Federica Cipriani from Ferrara, whose artistic research focuses on harmony and movement. Using an alphabet made of shapes and colors, the artist transforms butterflies and clouds made of paper into elegant and light compositions. Already successfully exhibited in numerous European art fairs, Cipriani has won, among others, the Arte Cairo Editore Award, the Nocivelli Award and the Michelangelo Antonioni Award.
The second part of the exhibition, on the other hand, has a strong spirit and winds through the places of Brunello Restaurant & Bar, thanks to the strong expressiveness of Marco Tamburro and the technological innovation of Roberto Grosso.
Born in Perugia in 1974, Tamburro is undoubtedly among the most interesting and established contemporary artists on the Italian art scene. After important exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale, Castel dell ‘Ovo in Naples, Palazzo Penna Perugia, Palazzo Medici Florence, he succeeds in the global market with exhibitions in Miami, New York, Sao Paulo, China, and Berlin. Published by the most important Italian art magazines, the works of this artist have received the praise of art critics who have defined Marco Tamburro’s intimate work as effective in conveying his cynical message: a punctual representation that cancels identities, substantiating the contemporary age of alienating depersonalizations in favour of metallic urban fabrics.
Roberto Grosso is inspired by music and the key element is the use of vibrant colours and Augmented Reality that allows the work to live a life beyond the frame, showing the different phases of realization accompanied by the soundtrack that inspired the work.
