Saturday July 21, 2018 an extraordinary event will be held in Mexico City in the private residence of Alejandra Matiz, daughter of the Colombian photographer Leo Matiz and president of the Leo Matiz Foundation, a dinner in honor of the Italian artist Emanuele Viscuso, in celebration of the rebirth of the Leo Matiz Gallery. Besides being a celebrated photographer, Leo Matiz opened an art gallery in Bogota in 1952 and the first artist presented there was Fernando Botero, showing his art for the very first time. From Alejandra: “In that magic place I was a little girl whose first toys were art pieces. One day my brother and I were almost destroying a Botero painting and I can’t tell how furious was my father…”.
Italian sculptor, designer, musician, architect, and personal friend and collaborator of Leo Matiz, Emanuele Viscuso will be the first artist showing at the Leo Matiz Gallery in Mexico City. With such an immensely diverse creative background, and with his past collaboration with Leo Matiz, he is the perfect choice of artist for such a rebirth. Among the invitees to the event of Saturday, the Italian Ambassador in Mexico, H.E. Luigi Maccotta.

Sabato 21 luglio 2018 si terrà a Città del Messico un evento straordinario nella residenza privata di Alejandra Matiz, figlia del fotografo colombiano Leo Matiz e presidente della Fondazione Leo Matiz: una cena in onore dell’artista italiano Emanuele Viscuso per presentare la rinascita della Galleria Leo Matiz. Infatti, oltre ad essere un famoso fotografo, Leo Matiz aprì una galleria d’arte a Bogotà nel 1952 e il primo artista che presentò fu Fernando Botero che fece proprio lì la sua prima mostra. Dice Alejandra: “In quel luogo magico ero una bambina i cui primi giocattoli erano opere d’arte. Un giorno mio fratello ed io stavamo quasi distruggendo un dipinto di Botero giocando con esso e non posso dire quanto si arrabbiò mio padre…”
Scultore, designer, musicista, architetto e amico personale e collaboratore di Leo Matiz, Emanuele Viscuso sarà il primo artista a esibirsi alla Leo Matiz Gallery di Città del Messico. Con un background creativo così variegato e con la sua passata collaborazione con Leo Matiz, Viscuso è la scelta perfetta per una tale rinascita. Tra gli invitati alla manifestazione di sabato, S.E. Luigi Maccotta, ambasciatore italiano in Messico.

VENER Lab at Salone del Mobile 2018

VENER Lab at Salone del Mobile 2018

“It often happened to us to supply carpentry labs with metal frames for the carrying-out of hand-made furniture. This way I started to imagine to accost a substance like metal, of which I know potentiality and limits, to other natural elements. A curiosity from which sprung out the desire to create an aesthetic sensory experience” (Giovanni Vener)
A research that in 2012 brought to the creation of VENER Lab. A team of 12 carpenters, mechanicians and carpenters, carry out the works designed and projected by Giovanni Vener. Stainless steel, aluminium, iron, copper and cortén steel that melt with matters as the chestnut, Lebanese cedar, the stone, the marble, the glass.
