What I did not sell

What I did not sell…
50 Years. A Story.
Curated by Marco Meneguzzo

December, 7 – 2019 > February 15 – 2020
Opening: December, 7 – 2019 at 11:30 am | Studio la Città – Verona

7 December 2019 will be an important date for Studio la Città: it will be fifty years since the gallery was opened and its founder, Hélène de Franchis, has decided to celebrate the event with a curious show, with a purposely provocative title.

What I did not sell…is a show curated by Marco Meneguzzo and it collects together a heterogeneous selection of works by Stuart Arends, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Vincenzo Castella, Lucio Fontana, Jacob Hashimoto, Emil Lukas, David Simpson, and Ettore Spalletti, to mention just a few.

An old motto of the art world says that the riches of a gallery dealer are to be found in what has not been sold, rather than in what has been sold, in the sense that time – always a gentleman – enormously re-evaluates those works that, at the moment of their exhibition in the gallery, have not been understood and have remained in store (or those works the dealer has decided to keep for herself …). What Hélène has not sold – or did not want to sell – is a new and highly pertinent show that is the summary of fifty years of choices, and the summary of fifty years of self-portraits.
