(São Paulo, Brazil) Nominating Committee member in the second edition of PIPA Prize, artist Luiz Zerbini presents his foray into the universe of prints for the first time in “Monotypes”, which opened last Saturday at Galpão by Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel, in São Paulo. Assisted by printer João Sánchez, Zerbini used rare botanical species as matrices for the pieces he showcases in the solo exhibition. The compositions favor the contours and textures of each species in a reduced palette of browns, greens and blacks.
(São Paulo, Brazil) In 2012, it was discovered that the province of Guangnom, in China, hid a replica of the ancient village of Hallstatt, Austria, in its minimal details. The case inspired the exhibition “Hallstatt”, which opens today at Galpão by Galeria Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel. Curated by Maria do Carmo M. P. de Pontes and Kiki Mazzucchelli—member of the PIPA Prize 2016 Nominating Committee— the show invites artists from eight different countries to discuss the repetition of signs, images and shapes in contemporary world.
