Gian Paolo Barbieri: Unconventional
From the 29th of November 2022 to the 25th of March 2023, 29 ARTS IN PROGRESS in Milan presents the exhibition Gian Paolo Barbieri: Unconventional, a selection of unseen colour photographs by the Artist who was the winner of the 2018 Lucie Award for Best International Photographer.
The exhibition presents a highly innovative selection of images to the public, both in terms of their setting and styling, the fruit of the unmistakable genius of the Artist. It is a style of photography that is at once ironic and sophisticated, both rare and provocative, rich with references to art history, eclectic outdoor sets in exotic locations and allusions to cinema that eco Barbieri’s experiences as a young man studying at Cinecittà in Rome.
The works shown, a mix of unseen portraits and hand-painted photographs, tell the story of the Artist’s irreverence and creativity, a photographer for whom the arts have always represented an inescapable means of validation and support to fashion, well beyond their use value.
