    ENGLISH TEXT BELOW :

    Traffic Gallery is proud to present large format artworks within On / Off exhibition. Eight internationally renowned artists who act since te beginning in the urban culture world. For each artist in alphabetical order we report some of the most important recent events; through wall painting, public installations, excellent collaborations, awards and museum exhibitions, the capacity of the urban world
    introduce itself in all its possible artistic declinations.

    Andreco (from Rome) : fresh about his recent great work of public art in Venice entitled CLIMATE 04 See Level Rise, and winner of the special Talent Prize award for which he will exhibit the next 12 December at Museo Macro in Rome.

    Giorgio Bartocci (from Milano) : a tireless urban painter and spokesperson of liquid society theory he has recently collaborated with Nike global brand, a project of art custom for NIKE AF1 NBA.

    Btoy (from Barcelona) : recently included in the Book Street Art & Cinema curated by Stéphanie Martin Petit & Christian Omodeo for the prestigious parisian publishing house Pyramyd.

    Eron (from Rimini) : currently engaged in Milan for the mural art work W.A.L.L. (Walls Are Love’s Limits) inside CityLife district. A wall 118 meters long and 8 meters high near Milan City Fair. We also recall the beatiful mural made for the Musei Civici of Modena at Palazzo Santa Chiara during last September.

    Lucamaleonte (from Rome) : a leading artist for the exhibition Cross the Streets at Macro Museum in Rome for the 40 years of the street and writing scene. He realized inside the Museum a spectacular wall painting entitled Mucchio di Fagiani.

    M-city (from Poland) : his recent public art installation for the polish Festival Open City 2017 is aesthetically and conceptually very interesting. Pomnik Konny, an orange infatable equestrian statue which breathingair like a lung, rising and falling continually to remind us of the fate that most of the monuments suffer due to historical and political changes.

    Nemo’s (from Nowhere) : his name is comparable to a contemporary Ulysses, he is irreverent and profane. He has no identity, he is no one, indeed he does not belong to anyone. He does not have a biography and we will not say anything about his recent works. But we know that most of you have clear in their mind his unpolitically-correct creations.

    Orticanoodles (from Milano) : a special note goes to the project that sees them involved ORME – Ortica Memoria, the first district museum where the history of the ‘900 is painted on the walls. Between 2017 and 2019 twenty mural works will be planned and four of them are already realized, obviously wthin Ortica district in Milan.

    The Blank is pleased to announce its collaboration with ArtOxygen (ArtO2) for the project of [en]counters 2017 – Daily Ration: Leda Windmill, the Numerologist of Alacati, realized by Gabriella Ciancimino who opens her Liberty Soft Drinks Cafe at Juhu Beach (Mumbai) from 26 to 28 October.

    The artist’s project is part of her ongoing research analysing relations between plants and humans, creating situations where the two parts confront each other.
Gabriella studies what emerges from relational exchanges seen through the invented Leda Windmill, the Numerologist of Alacati, whose origins are imagined, unknown and whose story will only be revealed from the social networks that are activated on the beach.
Leda Windmill, the Numerologist of Alacati plays on the image of the soothsayer, taking the form of a street cafe, inviting people to engage in card games. Candidates will receive a psychological profiling using cards that carry numbers and iconographic illustrations of medicinal plants. Combining beliefs of pythagorean philosophy and knowledge of local herbal scientists and botanists, the work invites a dialogue on the concept of resistance and freedom applied in relation to the local environment.
As each game begins, participants are offered a freedom cure – the Liberty Soft Drink – a herbal remedy prepared with natural medicinal experts.

    Gabriella Ciancimino (1978, lives and works in Palermo) uses site-specificity and collaborative processes incorporating diverse media as drawing, video, installation and sculpture. Her work can be found in public collections of RISO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea della Sicilia (Palermo), Museo del Novecento (Milan), Museo Villa Croce (Genova) and Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (Marseille FR).

    Founded in 2009, ArtOxygen (ArtO2) is a Mumbai-based art initiative curating and producing art projects in urban spaces. Since 2010, ArtO2 organizes [en]counters, a public art festival dealing with issues affecting the everyday life of Mumbai.

    The project, presented by UBI Banca, is realized in collaboration with The Blank Contemporary Art and with the support of Italian Embassy Cultural Centre.
The work will be activated at Juhu Beach (Mumbai) on 26-28 October from 4.30 to 7.30pm.
