Independent international art fair GRANPALAZZO 2016 is on in at Zagarolo’s Palazzo Pallavicini-Rospigliosi, running May 28 to 29.
Now in its second year running, the fair is showing 28 artists represented by 28 galleries in the Italian town, situated outside of a major city centre and the global art circuit. Rather than presenting booths, artists from Belgium, Canada, France, Britain, the Netherlands, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Mexico, Peru, Switzerland and the United States will show their work in dialogue with the 17th century Borghese palace to, as the press release states, “create a succession of poetic visions, styles, research”.
Some artists worth a mention include Anna Barham, Brian Kokoska, Piotr Łakomy, Daniele Milvio, Hamish Fulton and Maryam Jafri, represented by Arcade, Valentin, Antoine Levi, Hester, Espaivisor and Laveronica, respectively.
The weekend programme will also feature a range of live initiatives including performances, educational workshops and a bookshop, as well as a special project by Gabriele De Santis and a presentation of GIFs from smART – polo per l’arte‘s Stop and Go exhibition including Lorna Mills and Carla Gannis, among others.
