“A painting while it is composed follows the change of thought; when it is finished it continues to change, according to the feelings of those who look at it.”
(Pablo Picasso)

A new and unmissable exhibition of contemporary art will be inaugurated at Galleria360 on Friday 26th April 2024 at 7.30 pm in via Borgo Ognissanti 77r, Florence.
“Languages of Art”
is the title of the artistic event which reflects on the infinite communicative possibilities of art and the constant ability of artists to redefine new expressive and conceptual alphabets.

The twentieth century in the artistic field has accustomed us to continuous twists and turns, showing us that it is possible to follow alternative paths to the official and academic one. And it certainly did it in a disruptive way, starting a war that opens with a scream of color, the expressionist one; a revolution that subsequently feeds on the mechanical crash of Futurism, to then defragment reality in multiple points of view in the Cubist atomic explosion. And if the obsession with the new and the will to subvert the order of everything that was previously hegemonic animates the Dadaist negation, on the other hand, the unconscious becomes a fertile ground to be explored in order to bring out, through the psychic automatism of surrealist mold, its secret contents.

So, when surrealism tries to give shape to the formless resulting from the chaos into which the twentieth century seems to have plunged right from its beginning, we return to the lesson of the ancient masters and past cultures. This is the case of metaphysical experiences, where the recovery of classicism is not a determination of time but a spiritual category.

And finally, magical realism, poised between archaic candor and dreamy idyll, was not the last swan song of this intense and wild season of twentieth-century avant-gardes; the same desire to subvert pre-established codes and an incessant desire for experimentation also distinguishes our era. In fact, although different in spirit, as in the cultural climate, current times are characterized by the constant contamination of cultures and the coexistence of different languages. International biennials and fairs are the most eloquent mirror of this artistic multilingualism constantly poised between a via crucis of the anti-aesthetic cruelly exhibited and the search for a new beauty in unprecedented aesthetic chimeras.

“Languages of Art” is therefore a review that offers the opportunity to observe a great variety of directions and styles, highlighting the great richness of an increasingly heterogeneous artistic horizon open to contamination. During the vernissage a welcome drink will be offered while Jazz musicians will play live.
