BOXART GALLERY

 

Founded in 1995 by the current owner Giorgio Gaburro and direct, since 2006, along with Beatrice Benedetti, Boxart presented over the years the works of the greatest Italian exponents of contemporary art (Giulio Turcato, Mario Schifano, Mimmo Rotella, Emilio Isgrò) and the most interesting artists of successive generations (Sandro Chia, Marco Cingolani, Andrea Facco, Mauro Fiorese, Andrea Mastrovito).

After a decade of research, since 2006 Boxart opened to international names, such as the Austrian Actionist Hermann Nitsch, of which the Gallery has organized exhibitions and performances, as well as the Korean Kim Joon and the famous Chinese artists Gao Brothers and Liu Bolin did their show debut in Italy with Boxart.

Guide line for Boxart is the concept of project gallery: each project comes from the interplay between artist, curator and artistic director, and is designed specifically for the exhibition spaces of Boxart, in the heart of Verona, or to large institutional exhibitions in places consistent with the message and the artist's intervention.

Among the museum collaborations to be mentioned, the one with the Musée d'Art Moderne in Saint-Etienne (France), the MART in Rovereto ((Hermann Nitsch. 64.Malaktion, 2012)), with the H.C. Andersen Museum (Liu Bolin. Hiding in Italy, 2012 and Andrea Mastrovito. Here the Dreamers Sleep, 2015) and the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna in Rome (Emilio Isgrò. Model Italy 2013-1964, 2013), AMO – Arena Museo Opera (Hermann Nitsch e il teatro, 2016).

In 2014, Steve Sabella received an invitation from the Centro Internazionale Scavi Scaligeri in Verona to put on Archaeology of the Future, his first solo exhibition in an Italian museum.

Boxart's twentieth anniversary (2015) sees the opening of a solo display of works by Andrea Mastrovito at the H.C. Andersen Museum in Rome, in which the dreams and family history of the sculptor Hendrik Christian Andersen are brought back to life and taken through to the universal theme of Utopia.

That year the artist Liu Bolin completed his socially oriented project Migrants, with the involvement of the Comunità di Sant'Egidio and with some migrants from the various reception centres in Sicily.

2016 witnessed the ambitious project to bring Hermann Nitsch e il teatro to the Arena Opera Museo (AMO) museum in Verona, after it had gone of show at the Theater Museum in Vienna and at the Villa Stuck in Munich.
