Salvo “Sicilie e città”

The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Ranzi, and focuses on two distinct moments of the artist’s production: the “Sicilie” and “Italie” of the 1970s and the theme of the city, with a series of paintings dated from 1983 to 2003.
“SALVO. Sicilie e Città” is part of research that Dep Art Gallery has been carrying out for several years on the work of Salvo, Salvatore Mangione, already protagonist of three solo exhibitions at the gallery in 2007, 2010 and 2017. For this fourth monographic exhibition, the aim is to offer an unprecedented look at a rarer production of the artist, at the moment of his return to painting after his experience with Arte Povera, exploring on the one hand the complexity of his pictorial research and on the other hand his personal reinterpretation of the classical pictorial tradition.
