Recommendations of what to see in the Milan art scene this month by our local guide, Sara Cattaneo. Discover even more on a private tour.

I. 

Exhibition: Stephan Balkenhol
Artist: Stephan Balkenhol
Venue: Monica De Cardenas Galleria
Dates: Until March 10th, 2018


Galleria Monica De Cardenas presents a solo show of Stephan Balkenhol, one of the most interesting contemporary sculptors. The works of Balkenhol are made using an ancient technique: he brings out his figures by gouging them out of a tree trunk. The artist makes neutral figures; the absence of any distinctive sign aims to honour every man.
A beautiful exhibition of one of the most fascinating sculptors around.

III. 

Exhibition: The Measures of Memory
Artists: Alejandro Cesarco
Venue: Galleria Raffaella Cortese
Dates: Until March 2nd, 2018


In this solo exhibitions, Cesarco reflects on the possibilities of memory through different methods of investigation. The artist uses a framed archival ink-jet print and 8mm film transferred to digital in order to immerse the viewer in a melancholic universe, where he reflects on the different relationships that bind us to others and the role of the memory in these connections.
An intimate exhibition that gives us the opportunity to empathize with the artist and reread in his stories a bit of ours.
