THE NEW CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM OF MARCHE (ITALY) WILL KEEP A ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI LACER/ACTIONS WORK

ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI – C’E’ DEL CAOS MA CON UN PUNTO FOCALE, LACER/ACTIONS

There will be also an artwork created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” art project among the pieces that will be in permanent exhibition at the “St. Francis Contemporary Art Museum” which is  being born in Mercatello sul Metauro, a picturesque and fascinating medieval town in the centre of Italy (Marche region, in Pesaro Urbino territory).

This beautiful and praiseworthy initiative is carried out with enthusiasm by the local City Council and by Mayor Giovanni Pistola, by Pro Loco (tourism promotion association), by artist sculptor Pasquale Martini (curator of the Museum) and with the collaboration of the whole community, from families to schools, involved also in a particular campaign called “Adoption of an artwork.”

This extraordinary modern art collection (more than 150 pieces) will be kept in the ancient and medieval “St.Francis” convent now transformated in a beautiful  museum centre and a reference point for art and culture. The opening of “St. Francis Contemporary Art Museum”is scheduled for September 2012.

Roberto Alborghetti, as all the other artists hosted in this collection devoted to modern art, was proud to donate his work accepting the invitation he received from the curator and artist Pasquale Martini and from artist Maestro Carlo Iacomucci (who is one of the exhibitors too). Martini and Iacomucci viewed some of Roberto Alborghetti Lacer/Actions – Images of Torn (publi)City –   focusing their attention on an image that, according to them, depicts  and interprets the sense of Alborghetti’s research about the “metropolitan signs of our times”. The work which will be hosted and shown at the Museum is titled “There is some chaos, but with focal point” (canvas, 63 x 43). The image was “captured” in Milan, on a cloudy day in December 2010 (this post shows it as a special preview). Roberto Alborghetti is very glad to be part of this art collection gathering national and international artists who are developing new forms and expressions about contemporary art.

ETCHING WORK BY IACOMUCCI / LA “CITTA’ DELL’ANIMA”, L’ACQUAFORTE DI IACOMUCCI

Carlo Iacomucci, Italian artist, has produced an “Ex Libris” (an etching work) dedicated to Carlo Bo memory. The artwork – title: “The City of Soul” – is taking part of a current exhibition in Urbino (Italy) at Palazzo Petrangolini. 

L’incisore Carlo Iacomucci ha realizzato una lastrina in acquaforte (Ex Libris) di mm.125×100 dal titolo: “La Città dell’Anima” nell’ambito delle manifestazioni che riguardano la insigne figura di Carlo Bo, in occasione del centenario della nascita. La partecipazione degli artisti è stata solo dietro specifico invito, e l’evento è stato curato dal dott. Gian Carlo Torre, storico di ex libris, e dal prof. Gastone Mosci dell’Università degli Studi di Urbino.

Carlo Bo 1911-2011, Gli Ex Libris Illustrano e Narrano” è il titolo della mostra che è stata allestita presso Conversazioni di Palazzo Petrangolini in Piazza Rinascimento a Urbino e che rimarrà aperta dal 5 al 28 agosto 2011. Nei diversi anni della sua attività artistica Iacomucci ha sempre nutrito un vivo interesse per gli Ex-Libris, e intensa è stata la sua attività, pertanto viene segnalato tra 20 artisti internazionali dallo storico degli ex-libris Gian Carlo Torre e alcune sue opere sono state inserite nel libro d’arte “Contemporary International Ex-Libris Artists” in Portogallo edito da Artur Mota Miranda.
