Galleria Six is pleased to present an exhibition by the artist "Luca Rossi" curated by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio. The exhibition will take stock of the project that sees "Luca Rossi" engaged for 10 years and can be considered the consequence and the result of 10 years of activity. Fifteen new artworks by Luca Rossi and a video interview with the curator. The widespread aestheticization, the rapid proliferation of smooth images, consigned to consume, where only the mere present of the flattest perception counts, lead to a fundamental anesthetization. Luca Rossi, artist/collective, critic, curator, blogger, controversial personality who also works with anonymity, a sort of Anonymous of the Art System, has reacted in these years in this anesthetization by stimulating critical confrontation and creating projects that are able to reflect and resist against the knots of our contemporaneity.
Luca Rossi is an independent author for which anyone can be “Luca Rossi”. In this way everyone is stimulated to a new sense of opportunity and responsibility.
Luca Rossi was defined “the most interesting personality” in Italy by Fabio Cavallucci,and “the new Vanessa Beecroft” by Giacinto Di Pietrantonio. In 2011 Alfredo Cramerotti (curator of “Manifesta” and Museum Director Mostyn, Wales) wrote: “To be honest, I’m not Roberta (a 2011 project by Luca Rossi) made me think more than dozens of other projects I have seen “live”. In 2013 the art critic Angela Vettese stated that since he read Luca Rossi's blog she stopped devoting himself to the practice of art but only to theory. In December 2015 a comparison between Mario Perniola and Luca Rossi was published in the magazine Alfabeta2. In 2017 an article from Artribune magazine summarizes and retraces Luca Rossi's work starting in 2009.
