What I see
New figurative art in Italy

Galleria Civica Trento
15 February 2020 / 24 May 2020

ourteen Italian artists – young or mid-career – are the protagonists of What I see: an exhibition that presents some of the most important experiences in new figurative painting.
Comprehensive technical experience has allowed the artists showing their works to create realistic or hyper-realistic paintings, recovering the style approaches of the best-known classical tradition. Therefore, subtexts and symbolism, allusion and metaphor are all allowed, while at the same time, there is no shortage of fun, irreverence or social commentary. People and everyday objects populate these paintings, immersed in surreal, sensual and fairytale-like atmospheres that both surprise viewers and invite them to get lost in the details.

The exhibition features works by:
Giulia Andreani (Mestre, 1985)
Elisa Anfuso (Catania, 1982)
Annalisa Avancini (Trento, 1973)
Romina Bassu (Roma, 1982)
Thomas Braida (Gorizia, 1982)
Manuele Cerutti (Torino, 1976)
Vania Comoretti (Udine, 1975)
Patrizio Di Massimo (Jesi, 1983)
Fulvio Di Piazza (Siracusa, 1969)
Andrea Fontanari (Trento, 1996)
Giulio Frigo (Vicenza, 1984)
Oscar Giaconia (Milano, 1978)
Iva Lulashi (Tirana, 1988)
Margherita Manzelli (Ravenna, 1968)
