STUDIO D'ARTE GR
Established almost 40 years ago in the late 1970s, Studio d’Arte GR quickly focused its activity on the promotion and valorization of postwar avante-garde artwork of clear Latin matrix, favoring those artists who had created a special, personal propulsion and thrust during the triumph and eclipse of “Informale”. In the 1980s, Studio d’Arte GR became intent upon relaunching certain aspects of Abstractionism of the 1950s and 1960s which in Europe and especially Italy had been compared to American Abstract Expressionism, interesting itself in the works of artists such as Afro, Alberto Burri, Giuseppe Santomaso and Emilio Vedova.
Studio d’Arte GR then promoted and underscored the season of Spatialism – the real conclusion of the trajectory of “Informale” – with the diffusion of masters of relevance like Edmondo Bacci, Marco De Luigi, Lucio Fontana, Riccardo Licata and Tancredi. In the 1990s, Studio d’Arte began dedicating great energy and insight to the rediscovery and relaunching of the last true avante-garde movements of Kinetic, Programmed, and Optical art, establishing direct, often exclusive relationships and dealings with artists such as Getulio Alviani, Alberto Biasi, Gianni Colombo, Carlos Cruz Diez, Julio Le Parc, Francois Morrelet, Horacio Garcia Rossi, Francisco Sobrino and Victor Vasarely. Often carried forward in profound solitude, at most with a small number of faithful friends, this project was ahead of its time in advancing artists who had been almost completely forgotten but whose work has since been enthusiastically recognized by both critics and the market in the new millenium.
All this was possible thanks to the ongoing collaboration of Professor Giovanni Granzotto, a founding partner of the Studio and more importantly, one of the most expert and passionate supporters of postwar Latin art.
Today, Studio d’Arte GR alternates its activity with the discovery and promotion of young talent that challenges itself with the most varied of media, maintaining a dynamic attitude towards chromatic vibration and luministic inquiry.
In addition to its business activity, Studio d’Arte GR has always engaged in dynamic, purely cultural endeavors at regular intervals, organizing exhibitions and artistic reviews in prestigious museums such as GNAM in Rome, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, MMOMA in Moscow, MACBA and Museo di Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires, and Palazzo Ducale in Venice. The staff of Studio d’Arte GR pride themselves on having organized and curated almost 300 public exhibitions.
With this premise, New York GR Gallery has recently been born, a structure completely centered on the culture and market of the United States. Formed by a mix of both young and expert personalities, New York GR Gallery is dedicated to distinguishing those movements and artists that the art world has finally acknowledged and now celebrates, but is also committed to promoting innovative talent and worth. Studio d’Arte GR has already demonstrated special expertise and intuitive flair for this in the last few decades, thus allowing us to foresee a great future in the world of contemporary art.
