Galleria Fumagalli, historical art venue founded in 1971 in Bergamo and co-directed since 1991 by Stefano Fumagalli and Annamaria Maggi, who was appointed as sole director in 2007, relives its latest thirty years in 2021 presenting a special program of initiatives. Annamaria Maggi has invited Lóránd Hegyi – Hungarian art historian, writer and curator, who has directed major European museums over the years – to conceive a series of exhibitions. «The exhibition project designed by Lóránd Hegyi for Galleria Fumagalli will be truly unique and original: no intent to summarize the past, but instead the will to inspire dialogues and generational comparisons that may activate new ways of reading and sensitise the audience to new visions» Annamaria Maggi.

Speaking of the exhibitions, the curator explains: «The project is focusing on Annamaria Maggi’s thirty-year work at Galleria Fumagalli while intending to emphasize some significant elements of the gallery’s aesthetic orientation and its coherent vision of art. It is not our intention to give neither a summary-like presentation of the past thirty years, nor any chronologically structured, philologically elaborated documentation about Galleria Fumagalli’s activity. Contrary to any form of historization, the project intends to signalize Annamaria’s solid, profound engagement for certain aesthetical values based on authenticity, empathy, sensibility and her believe that art can reflect the wholeness of human experiences».

The series of 8 exhibitions involves 12 artists, followed or represented by Galleria Fumagalli, which belong to different generations and geographical contexts and follow different approaches, yet offer converging aesthetic and conceptual ideas.
Each exhibition jointly presents the work of 3 artists, in a close comparison on some specific themes. Each artist is doubly involved in the series, finding themselves in dialogue with different artists each time.
