Based in the culturally rich Brera district in the historical heart of Milan, Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea is an Italian contemporary gallery that represents Italian and international artists with well-established practices alongside many younger artists.Read More
Its founder and namesake Mimmo Scognamiglio is an Italian gallerist who cut his curatorial teeth working for 10 years with renowned Italian art dealer and curator Lucio Amelio. Originally founded as Scognamiglio e Teano in 1995 in Naples, in 2007 the gallery—re-christened Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea in 2000—moved to the contemporary fashion and design capital of Milan. Since then, the gallery has been active on the city’s cultural scene, holding shows in public and private settings, collaborating with avantgarde curators and publishers, and organising art seminars.
Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea Artists
Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea represents a combination of established and emerging artists working across a broad range of mediums.
The gallery’s roster includes internationally exhibiting artists, such as Chiharu Shiota—the Berlin-based Japanese multimedia artist known for her yarn installations; Serbian contemporary fine art photographer Ljubodrag Andric, whose crisp, enigmatic, and sometimes surreal images have attracted a global audience; London-based Tibetan artist, Gonkar Gyatso, and British artist Jason Martin, whose abstract monochromatic paintings and mixed-media works explore and expand on the physical properties of painting.
Additionally, the gallery represents established Italian artists, like the late Art Povera painter Domenico Bianchi and the painter and printmaker Mimmo Paladino, a leading figure in the Transavantgarde art movement.
The gallery also represents many emerging and mid-career Italian artists such as Naples-born multimedia artist Maddalena Ambrosio; pencil-obsessed Lucio Perone, with his witty PVC and resin sculptures, and his brother Peppe Perone, whose figurative sculptures in wood, metal, and fiberglass are coated with coarse, coloured sand.
Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea Exhibitions and Art Fairs
Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea promotes the work of both its established and emerging artists through in-depth solo and group exhibitions.
Some of the gallery’s hallmark shows include the gallery’s inaugural Milan exhibition, SPACETIME (2007), the second solo-show of British sculptor Anthony Gormley in Milan in 22 years; Human Shots (2013), an expansive survey of contemporary fine art photography revolving around the human figure; and 20 Years and... (2015), the inaugural show of the current Brera space marking Scognamiglio’s 20 years as a gallerist with artists who continue to share that journey.
Maintaining an international presence, Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea participates in several major art fairs including Art Verona, miart, ArteFiera, Zona Maco, Cape Town Art Fair, Art Miami Beach, Dallas Art Fair, Art Paris, and Art New York.
Galleries were positive about the engagement from local collectors when the world's oldest art fair finally took place this week.Read More Ocula News Phillips and Poly Auction Set Records for 17 Artists in China Sales Hong Kong, 9 June 2021
