Jasmine Gregory “Mommie dearest”

Mommie dearest is the first solo show in Italy by artist Jasmine Gregory, taking place at Istituto Svizzero in Milan. As part of a young generation of emerging artists, for this show, Jasmine Gregory presents a series of new paintings and a work that lies between sculpture and ‘ready-made’. Working primarily with painting, she engages with iconography and western art history from a critical perspective. Within this context, she explores her role as a young painter, playfully and smoothly combining pop cultural references and contemporary theoretical discourses into her practice.

The opening was accompanied with sound by ALIENI (TOMBOYS DON’T CRY). ALIENI (TOMBOYS DON’T CRY): melting atmospheres and tropical rhythms meet sweet sounds with an R&B taste. Pop culture and experimentation take new forms and are added to the contaminations coming from the city where she lives and works as a photographer: London.

On April 2 artist Anna Franceschini will present the performance “Mototeatro.”
