Mazzoleni is delighted to announce a new digital project: #MAZZOLENIBRUNCH, which will launch on the gallery's social media platforms on Sunday 26 April 2020. Following #MAZZOLENIDIARY, a digital initiative presenting the historical identity of the gallery through the work of 30 of the most representative artists spanning its three-decade activity, Mazzoleni now dedicates a space to its contemporary artists: #MAZZOLENIBRUNCH will focus on the younger artists' artistic dialogue and practice by invoking a convivial, albeit virtual, Sunday brunch. Every Sunday for the following seven weeks, the gallery will devote the day to each artist on its social media channels. #MAZZOLENIBRUNCH will host the artists and give them an opportunity to reflect on what they are experiencing at the moment and to ponder on the future of their work in a suddenly different and new world. Luca Arboccò (1992), Andrea Francolino (1979), Melissa McGill (1969), Rebecca Moccia (1992), David Reimondo (1973), Shigeru Saito (1974) and Massimo Vitali (1944) will be the protagonists of a screen-based exploration of diverse artistic practices, from photography to performance, from sculpture to video, described on the basis of specific generational and cultural approaches. #MAZZOLENIBRUNCH has arisen from a desire to offer the artists a privileged space for expression at a time in which the brusque interruption of physical, real fruition of artworks has actually help stimulate creative activity and theoretical thinking. The format has been incorporated within a project for the expansion of the gallery's social media platforms that rather than merely a place for information about the gallery's activities have become 'rooms' for the presentation of site-specific works, but also digital archives conserving the past and a 'forum' for debate about the present and possible futures. While up until a couple of months ago, the art show, the art fair stand and institutional collaborations were the most evident and immediate products of a complex system of research, study, dialogues with artists, curators and collectors, at the present time this subtext of relationships and contents inevitably acquires a greater centrality and the digital channels, the only available medium of communication, have been promoted to offer a diverse experiential dimension.
