Rosso e Grigio is the title of the new show curated by Marco Meneguzzo in programme at Studio la Città from 12 December 2020.
18 artists will be featured with works in ceramic or cement.
As already happened in the show titled Vetro, Glass, the guiding line is again that of “curiosity” in seeing how these artists work with these materials: both the artists who use them frequently in their work and the artists who have only experimented with them occasionally. Studio la Città has chosen this interesting field of inquiry to discover and compare the various applications and different art-research languages of artists who belong to different generations, nationalities, and cultures.
The title of the show refers to two distinct colours, just as distinct are the materials that are its protagonists. Ceramic and concrete, as Marco Meneguzzo points out in the text for the show, “are antithetical materials: either one or the other is used, and it is difficult – if not impossible – to find them together, due to a kind of behavioural incompatibility that sees the warmth of the earth counterposed to the chill of the conglomerate, just as red is distant from grey, not to speak of their genuine structural quality.”
In February the rooms of the gallery were rearranged to open a new exhibition and on this occasion also the Red and Gray exhibition was rethought, partly modifying the original set up, but retaining its intentions.
