THE STREET IS A FREE ART GALLERY: TORN PUBLICITY POSTERS, SLIDESHOW #2

Are these modern art paintings? Are these pop art works? Are these acrylic pictorial paintings? No, they are just photos of details of big torn publicity posters on an outdoor advertisings billboard. For me, the street is a real free art gallery, where we can perceive wonderful pieces of art. The pictures above are part of my “LaceR/Actions” project-research, which now has reached 110.000 photos taken across the world.
“LaceR/Actions” is a multidisciplinary project concerning researches about decomposed and torn publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban/industrial tokens. Impressed by photocamera and transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed publicity posters give new life to waste-paper and decomposed matters. Like the picture above.

A SPECIAL “GHOST BUS” EVENT AT THE GALLERY (WED. JUNE 5) IN BEESTON-NOTTINGHAM, UK

TheGhostBus2019_n

Guest Writer: MARYSIA ZIPSER, Founder of ACT Group

Roberto Alborghetti, the official biographer to Pope Francis, visual artist, best selling author and award-winning environmental journalist, is returning to Beeston, Nottingham next month.

For one evening Roberto Alborghetti will be on stage sharing his fascinating stories which span secrets from the Vatican kitchens in Rome to how a decaying old vehicle in a former bus garage in Beeston inspired his film, The Ghost Bus.

An audience from across the country is gathering on Wednesday evening June 5th to hear Roberto talk about what inspires him and how art is actually lurking around each and every corner of our day to day lives if only we took the time to observe it.

Nostalgia for 1950’s coach tours, the passage of time and a sense of homecoming has created this enduring legacy of the Ghost Bus project.

This was itself originally inspired by close observation by Roberto of a long-preserved historic coach in Bartons’ Docking Shops, buildings which currently house an unusual and much-loved events space. These elements make this ‘In Conversation with’ evening a very special proposition.

The Ghost Bus project with its short films and musical compositions, some from local singer-songwriter, Jeanie Barton means this one off event has come to its spiritual home.

This special Ghost Bus event – “In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti” takes place on Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite: £12.50 | £8 — (£15 on the door)

“… Since the moment we started to put online some pictures, flyers, cards series and video trailers, a lot of people across the world have been expressing, thinking and commenting on the Ghost Bus project. This is the power of visual arts and musical arts. This is the wonder of a family history, the Bartons. This is the beauty of what human beings can do through creativity and mutual cooperation.” (Roberto Alborghetti)

A BREATHTAKING PANORAMA FROM “FACCIATONE”, THE MOST AWE-INSPIRING VIEWPOINT IN SIENA

La Città del Cielo / The City of Celestial Sky

Siena (Tuscany, Italy) 8 May – 8 September 2019

This huge and high wall that, in the Sienese’s intent, was supposed to be the façade of a New Cathedral, an architectural dream, looks at the whole city. From the top, it will be possible to recognize the most significant “places” of the City, the one originated from the “Good Government“, with the invitation, once descended, to stop in the same spaces in which the Siene community recognizes itself, and live it intensely. The Facciatone, with its mighty foundations and its slight altitudes, ridge “in the dazzling radiance of its Marbles and bricks” (Mario Luzi), is the space in which Siena welds the City of Earth and the Celestial City in a single glance.

Introduction to the City from the Panorama of Facciatone.
Every day from 10 am to 7 pm
Special openings from 8 am to 10 am by reservation only
