ABOUT GAGLIARDI ART SYSTEM
For some GAS has a somewhat metropolitan-modern-aggressive sort of sound, which however marks the gallery as one with its own physical space and which, for this very reason, could be perceived by most as a traditional gallery. However, Gagliardi Art System – the extended name of the company from which GAS derives – reveals – in giving up its creative synthesis – much more the intentions set by the birth of a new operator in the art world. The name not only implies the new establishing of an art gallery but also the birth of an entirely new system. A multiple approach to the very art system. The enjoyment as well as the production of art. GAS aims at providing for a new art gallery manager figure, embodying guarantor-friend-advisor-PR-guru (Pietro Gagliardi’s passion for art cannot meet his being alien, so far, to this world) with a flurry of creativity, ideas, opportunities on which to attract the artists’ attention, prompting them to an exchange of experiences, almost recreating a big medieval studio, but with more advanced tools of virtual contamination. It will attempt to be open in its choices – leaving out all preconceptions and prejudices – it will have a new type of communication (which will debut by testing an « exaggerated » communication project within the art gallery, conceived to be exported in other dimensions). Special attention will be also dedicated to young talents or to those who have not yet found a space among the anointed, in this respect, the years PG spent in BGS’ creative peoples’ forge have been a great deal encouraging.
