Origins – Visions on African Art and Classic Contemporary Primitive, both dedicated to ancient African Art, represent an absolutely new proposal for Milan. They candidate, for the exceptionality of the works presented, to finally bring clarity to a field, the one of the Primitive Art, that, even though has long received an investiture of classicism by museums and prestigious exhibitions (as well as from auction houses and investors more sensitive to market trends), in Italy has only been given episodic attention.
The exhibition Origins will enjoy the location of Luxury Living in via Durini 11, opening on November 15th (by invitation) – open to the public on the 16th and the 17th. The event will be centred on a selection of works by two collectors who are familiar with the avant-garde choices: Anna Demina and Leinuo Zhang, emblematic citizens of the new Milan who were able to grasp both the contribution of African Art to the Art of the twentieth century and the absolute contemporaneity of its aesthetic language.
The Classic Contemporary Primitive exhibition will be presented in the historical premises of the Dalton Somaré Gallery in via Borgonuovo 5, for decades a strong presence on the international market of African Art, from 16th to 30th November.
