This event has ended.

Sous Les Etoiles Gallery presents “Works 1957-2005” the first survey exhibition in the United States of the Italian artist Gianfranco Chiavacci (1936-2011).

A self-taught and innovative Tuscan artist, Gianfranco Chiavacci was born in 1936 in Pistoia, near Florence, where he lived and worked for all his life. Tirelessly inventive and driven by an insatiable curiosity, Gianfranco Chiavacci developed, over the course of his fifty-year-long career, a poetically experimental artistry that deviated from the conventional rules of creation. By intersecting the experiences of the binary language with the expression of abstract art, Chiavacci has demonstrated a pioneer vision seeking to decode this language by applying it in his paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures.

Chiavacci’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions since 1967. In 2015, a joint exhibition with French artist François Morellet, founding member of op-kinetic art research group G.R.A.V., was curated by Italian art galleries Artforms and Die Mauer. The title of this exhibition Chiavacci | Morellet, rigorosi, rigolards…was conceived as a dialogue between these two polymorphic artists.
