M77 presents The Visibility of the Invisible, an exhibition project dedicated to the artist Alberto Biasi (Padua, 1937), curated by Alberto Salvadori and specially devised for the spaces of this gallery. The exhibition, in compliance with current regulations and possible restrictions related to the evolution of the pandemic, will open to the public on Monday 17 May at 6:30pm until Sunday 19 September 2021.
Alberto Biasi is one of the most important personalities of post-war Italian art: Programmed Art pioneer and co-founder of the historic Gruppo N, Biasi has focused his artistic quest on optic-kinetic research extending to the creation of installations, ambient settings, and more recently, sculptures. With this exhibition, M77 and curator Alberto Salvadori wished to return to the origins of the Padua- born artist's very long career, highlighting primarily its gestalt and experiential aspects, along with the revolutionary role that he performed to introduce the concept of ambient/artwork into Italy. The four ambient settings and the installation exhibited at M77 are not based just on space and light, but also, and above all, on the people who visit the worlds that the artist has prepared for them: spectators, with their reactions and responses to the artist's estranging proposals, are the true protagonists of the work.
