HALL 2.0


(1947, Florence)

Salvadori sees the cup as a possibility of transitioning from an illusory two-dimensional condition to a multi-dimensional reality. In his work, cups, like other containers he employs, symbolize the connection between individuals, serving as tangible, everyday objects regarded as having alchemical significance.

Remo Salvadori works with Christian Stein since 1988.

On view: Remo Salvadori - Retrospective at Galleria Christian Stein, Milan 2018

Remo Salvadori lives and works in Milan. An important figure of the generation following Arte Povera and Conceptual Art, Salvadori opens up new spaces in the conception and formulation of his work, where art is experienced as a "revelation". The attention directed towards time and space in his work, as in his own life, intersects with reflections on the essence of color, the nature of pure metal, and the role of the observer.

Salvadori’s important solo exhibitions include:

Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice (2005); Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato (1997); Magasin, Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Grenoble (1991); and the Italian Cultural Institute and The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (1987). In terms of group exhibitions, Salvadori has participated in Trame, at the Triennale di Milano (2014); Tridimensionale, MAXXI, Rome (2012); Happiness: A Survival Guide for Art and Life, inaugural exhibition at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, (2003); Arte italiana 1945-1995, Nagoya, Tokyo, Tottori and Hiroshima, (1997-1998); the Venice Biennale (1982, 1986, 1993); Documenta, Kassel (1982, 1992); Chambres d’amis, Ghent (1986), Correspondentie Europa, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1986); Ouverture II, Castello di Rivoli, Rivoli (1986); and The European Iceberg, The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (1985).
