7th of May 2017

Wednesday 17 May at the Il Bisonte Foundation school, Via del Giardino Serristori 13 / r (a few meters from the gallery)
6 pm

The new screen printing laboratory of the Il Bisonte Foundation is presented, equipped to host courses open to the public, but also independent artists interested in working with screen printing.

For the occasion, the spaces of the laboratory will host the DELICIOUS exhibition, a collective show curated by Francesca Riccioni Holsenn, which collects the works of 10 artists: Anna Deflorian, Davide Toffolo, Elisa Muliere, Fabio Tonetto, Francesca Protopapa (alias Pistrice), Laura Anastasio , Matteo Berton, Richard McGuire, Silvia Rocchi, Tuono Pettinato.

The selected artists all share a synthetic, dry, elegant style. They have multi-faceted careers, many of them are active in the editorial field, but DELICIOUS wants to focus on their more traditionally artistic side. They are authors whose work was born on and for paper, a favorite support and never left, if not to be accompanied by experimentation on other supports and with alternative techniques.

DELICIOUS intends to enhance and create new attention around the “paper” by bringing it into different exhibition contexts than the usual Italian channels of use and sales to which illustration has been (re) linked for too long.

DELICIOUS therefore exhibits ten “delights” of Italian and foreign illustration, called upon to elaborate original graphic “delicacies”.

The project chooses, as a starting point, a relatively recent and fresh serial printing reproduction technique such as screen printing, to combine it with the unrepeatability of the creative gesture with the result of ten unique works in which screen printing will be embellished by the intervention of each author: ten collectible artist monotypes.

The curator, with a strong experience of research in the exhibition field in cities like New York and Paris, has chosen to make use of the precious collaboration of the screen printing laboratory of the historic graphic school Il Bisonte of Florence, which has always distinguished itself in the production and dissemination art graphics and part of the Italian and international heritage and tradition of publishing excellence.
