GALLERY TWO: AGAPITO MINIUCCHI: COLLAGES AND SCULPTURES
The smaller project space will feature a solo exhibition of recently created collages (2021) and older sculptures by 97 year old renown Italian artist Agapito Miniucchi.
Miniucchi, most known for his monumental sculptures, has a very diverse approach to his artistic oeuvre which includes sculpture, painting, ceramics, drawing, printmaking and collage.
His newest collages are reminiscent of his earlier watercolors and ceramic plates in which he used simple yet powerful gestures to form stark and dynamic compositions. The featured sculptures are studies and often serve as maquettes for larger monumental works.
Miniucchi has been featured in exhibitions throughout Italy, including the Venice Biennale, and Europe. He has also had solo exhibitions in New York and Tokyo. Many of his works are in US collections and museums such as The Lannan Foundation, the San Diego Museum, Albright Knox Museum, and amongst others.
