Miart, Milan

Booth E43 - Emergent section
with Alicia Adamerovich & Ezio Gribaudo

Winner of the LCA Prize

1 - 3 April 2022

For its first participation in Miart, Sans titre (2016) proposes a duo presentation by American artist Alicia Adamerovich (b. 1989) and Italian artist Ezio Gribaudo (b. 1929), a seminal figure of modernism who hasn’t shown work in an art fair in years. Gribaudo will present a selection of paintings and works on paper representative of his iconic series of the 1960s and 1970s: Cuba, Logogrifos and Arizona. Alicia Adamerovich’s installation consists of paintings and wall pieces, but also sculptures in the form of furniture, such as tables and chairs. Visitors are invited to sit and rest in the booth, which offers a break from the ecstatic fair atmosphere. The installation also acts as a reading room, showcasing a selection of Gribaudo’s most important publications.

Inspired by biomorphism, Alicia Adamerovich’s practice studies the anthropomorphic nature of objects, and highlights their creative potential. Her works trace her psychic evolution, drawing from the unconscious to give form to interior sensations and emotions. Born in 1989 in Latrobe (Pennsylvania, USA), she lives and works in Brooklyn, USA. She earned a BA in design at Pennsylvania State University and studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions including “Second Nature” at Del Vaz Projects, Los Angeles; “A Bat Out of Hell” at Sans titre (2016), Paris; “Day” at Galerie Tator, Lyon; “The Loner’s Castle” at Projet Pangée, Montreal; “Vibrant Matter” at FISK Gallery, Portland. Alicia Adamerovich has participated in numerous group shows, including “Mystic Toolkit” at Artpace, San Antonio; “Parallax” at Y2k Group, New York; “Theorem X” at Rachel Uffner, New York; “Shelter Lines” at Palazzo Monti, Brescia; “Theorem Y”, at Mrs. Gallery, New York; “The Symbolists: The Flowers of Evil” at Hesse Flatow, New York and “Wild Objects” at Projet Pangée, Montreal.

Ezio Gribaudo (b. 1929) is an artist and art publisher who lives and works in Turin. He was trained in graphic arts at the Academy of Brera in Milan, and later studied at the Turin Polytechnic Faculty of Architecture. Assimilating into his artistic practice the role of art publisher, he worked with many of the major figures in mid-20th century modern and contemporary art. Gribaudo also developed a series of impactful publishing ideas that influenced his artistic output, parts of which were forged in dialogue with various printing machines and mechanisms. Ezio Gribaudo’s work has been awarded several prestigious international prizes, among which the 9th Rome Quadriennale (1965), as well as the Graphic Arts Prize at the 33rd Venice Biennale (1966) and the 9th São Paulo Art Biennial (1967). In 2011, he was invited to participate in the Italian Pavilion of the 54th Venice Biennale.
