The art is dead! Category : artists
Posted on  : January 21, 2012, 9:11 am Author : Rafael Leonardo Carlesso |

Or rather, the artistic vanguard purposely denies the past as a way to design a new format and a new significance to the art as a whole.

The five new paintings presented in the exhibition have never been shown before, and now become part of the Collection.

Posted on  : December 29, 2012, 6:57 am Author : Collezione Maramotti

The project is accompanied by an artist’s book.
