I. 

Exhibition: Sporgersi nella notte
Artists: Sophie Ko
Venue: Renata Fabbri Arte Contemporanea
Dates: Until April 28th, 2018


Sporgersi nella notte (Leaning into the night) is the title of the solo show by Sophie Ko. The artist invites us to look towards the unknown and to question ideas and images in our everyday life. The artist has produced a series of new works by rearranging existing objects and other minimal interventions, exploring concepts of sacred, saint and earth. A unique exhibition of one of the most interesting contemporary artists active in town right now .

II. 

Exhibition: Dialoghi
Artists: David Simpson / Francesco Bertocco
Venue: Office Project Room
Dates: Until April 30th, 2018


Office Project Room presents a solo exhibition by Francesco Bertocco, in dialogue with the work of the late Lilac by David Simpson. This is the first episode of the Dialoghi (Dialogues) cycle, a project that has the purpose to establish a dialogue between young artist and more established ones. With this selection of photographs, Francesco Bertocco explores the original setting of Sigmund Freud's study in Vienna, going to investigate the space as a place of the particular relationship between therapist and patient. Last but not least, the exhibition is displayed at Office Project Room, a fresh new space in Milan where the actual part of one of the offices is used as an exhibition space. An inspiring new way to investigate such an old field.

III. 

Exhibition: Forme-pensiero
Artists: Meris Angioletti
Venue: Otto Zoo
Dates: Until May 12th, 2018


Otto Zoo presents a solo show by Meris Angioletti, that includes some recent artist’s works, all characterised by the use of primary elements borrowed from the language of film, such as light, projection and frame. The exhibition hosts for the first time a series of shadowgraphs: photographic images obtained by the simple interposition of objects between the paper and the light source. A new use of the light which creates non-classifiable works and it makes us reflect on the central dimension that light has in all its artistic declensions.
