This event has ended.

GR Gallery presents a group show featuring five artists, represented by the gallery, who are now participating at the 57th Venice Biennale: Alberto Biasi, Franco Costalonga, Nadia Costantini, Sandi Renko, Claudio Rotta Loria.

This exhibition aims to underline the international relevance and attention that is now pointing at five outstanding artists represented by GR gallery, that are simultaneously attending the most important art event in the world: the Venice Biennale. All Italian, these artists are among the founders or prime representative of the Optical Art and Kinetic Art. An movement emerged in the early 50s in Europe and South America that rose quickly in the early 60s also in the U.S., peaked with “The Responsive Eye” exhibition at New York MOMA in 1965, and then faded within a few years. On both sides of the ocean, it has had a long and outsized influence on visual art, architecture and design. In the last few years, the art world has witnessed a deluge of Op and Kinetic art centered exhibitions by major international museums and galleries and the markets took notice.

The Show, curated by Italian art critic Giovanni Granzotto, puts together 20 artworks, including paintings on canvas and wood, works on paper, sculptors and 3D relieves executed between 1970 and early 2000’s, engaging in a conversation about the infinite possibilities on movement and dynamism. Mr. Granzotto is also the curator of the Venice Biennale exhibition hosted by Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa that is featuring the same artists in Venice.
