Sergi Barnils, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Achille Perilli, Joan Hernández Pijuan

From September 15th to October 29th, Fondazione Stelline hosts this exhibition project aimed to identify and trace text structures hiding behind images, from the end of the 50’s to present day. After Milan, the show will move to CAMeC in La Spezia.

The exhibition involves Italy and Spain, with four artists from different generations engaged in the search for a primary sign. Sergi Barnils, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Achille Perilli and Joan Hernández Pijuan are the protagonists of the Sign Alphabet, the exhibition curated by Alberto Fiz, that will continue at the CAMeC in La Spezia from November 4th 2017 to January 7th 2018.

“In our highly technological society, the sign alphabet remains so topical”, says curator Alberto Fiz. “Logos, symbols, codes, and emoticons have entered our daily life as if it were necessary to simplify the message, recovering the emotional dimension based on an awareness transmitted by the masters of the abstract-informal and reintroduced today with determination and even with irony”.

Here is a link to the press release, for more information on this 40 works exhibition.

The inauguration will be held on Thursday, 14th September, 2017 at 18:30. Those who wish to attend can download the invitation, valid for 2 people, to be presented at the entrance:
