Guna Contemporary is currently curating the 8-month institutional exhibition and nomadic curatorship project Gastone Novelli: Saturnia, the Origins, the Magic of the Sign. The exhibition aims to enhance the hidden historical relevance for the contemporary art scene of Saturnia, a small village located far away from the mainstream contemporary art scene.
The exhibition design presents cubes and parallelepipeds, creating a dynamic space that, with games of solids, voids and ideal extensions of the lines, invites the visualisation of those ‘different horizons’ of which Novelli speaks in his architectural composition lessons, and which he himself traces in his artistic practice.
Guna Contemporary used a collaborative curatorial approach with the territory, creating a web of working relationships between the Archivio Gastone Novelli, the museum Polo Culturale Pietro Aldi, the local council, Terme di Saturnia Spa and many other local organisations and companies, both public and private.
The exhibition is held in Satunia, at Polo Aldi from 9 April 2022 to 8 January 2023.
