This is the very first exhibition devoted to the artist’s work where Dries Van Noten takes us on an intimate journey into his artistic universe, he reveals the singularity of his creative process which he illustrates with his various and numerous sources of inspiration. An exhibition that embraces all his interior world and reveals the uniqueness of his creative process through the eclecticism of its universe of signs, shapes and colors settled in his mind, his cultural and aesthetic references.
The exhibition, open until the end of August, is the opportunity to see, perfectly mixed with the creations of Van Noten, masterpieces by important artists such as Bronzino, Kees Van Dongen, Yves Klein, Victor Vasarely, Francis Bacon, Elizabeth Peyton and Damien Hirst.

ART AND FABRIC: PAE WHITE

The installations of Pea White, Californian artist known in Italy for its spectacular installation at the Venice Biennial in 2009, are never what they seem.

They give a misleading perception of the space in which they are conceived, like intricate games that give a strange but pleasant disorientation.

Pae’s works are rich in autobiographical references and bring together knowledge and skills from different cultures: references that give depth to artworks in which is pleasant to get lost.

His works are often intricate labyrinths of of wires, colored networks in contrast with the architectural space in which they are inserted and at the same time enhance its characteristics by building a fascinating dialogue with it. Like a spider weaving its net, Pae White captures with his plots fragments or small objects that remain suspended in the air waiting to be moved by the smallest movement of air.
