The Civic Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Turin dedicated to Omar Galliani the second chapter of “Dialogues“, an exhibition and research project about the Museum permanent collections, that want to establish a dialogue with contemporary artists known on the international art scene.
The project “Dialogues” invites the artists to realize an exhibition to relate their works with the museum masterpieces.
Omar Galliani chose to refer to the important graphic heritage of the museum, which includes about 30,000 works and has recently been exposed in the new Gallery Department of Drawings and Prints.
The exhibition, which title is “L’Opera al nero“, is held at GAM Underground Project, an area of over 1,000 square meters, and includes a selection of 30 big works, all made with the technique of pencil drawing on table.
The exhibition starts from the first artist works, dated back to the mid-seventies, to the last productions. It’s a way to discover Omar Galliani’s career, with his most symbolic and mystic works, developed with a formal rigor, together with the extraordinary technique that has always distinguished him.
An important volume of 300 pages accompanies the exhibition.
