miart 2019 | Generations section and Fidenza Village Prize

miart is pleased to announce the new iteration of its curated section Generations, in which two galleries are invited to create a conversation between works by two artists from different generations.

Herald St will set the abstract visual vocabulary of New York-based artist Matt Connors next to the chromatic structures and meshes of Post-War master Piero Dorazio, brought by Tega. The inquisitive practice of Los Angeles-based artist and writer Walead Beshty (Thomas Dane Gallery) will converse with conceptual works on photography by North American experimental filmmaker and artist Morgan Fisher (Bortolami).

Architecture, design, and geometry will be the territories of the formal investigations by Chicago-based artist Richard Rezac(Isabella Bortolozzi) and the abstraction research of Giacomo Balla, a key proponent of Futurism (Maggiore G.A.M.), while The Sunday Painter will bring New York-based sculptor Kate Newby’s spatial interventions together with Brooklyn-based painter Michael Berryhill’s vibrant imagery (Lulu).

The female body and identity will be at the center of the pairing between Feminist Avant-Garde multimedia artist Birgit Jürgenssen’s incisive works and Vienna-based artist Tina Lechner’s sculptural portraits, both brought by Galerie Hubert Winter, while the sophisticated exploration of form, pose, and gesture will be at the core of the dialogue between the scenic compositions of London-based artist Patrizio Di Massimo(T293) and the seminal works by German-American photographer Horst P. Horst (Paci Contemporary).

London-based painter Polys Peslikas’ fascinating stratifications of visual data (Vistamare – Vistamarestudio) will be paired with reknown De Stijl group member César Domela’s photographic experimentations (Martini & Ronchetti). Finally, Japanese artist Katsumi Nakai’s tridimensional paintings (Ronchini) will meet with Milan-based artist Alice Cattaneo’s study of materials and their physical presence in the space (MLF | Marie-Laure Fleisch).

Generations is curated by Anthony Reynolds, Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London, and Chris Sharp, Writer, Independent Curator and Co-director, Lulu, Mexico City
