GALLERY AND INSTITUTIONS

History

Galleria Fumagalli was founded in Bergamo in 1971. From 1990 the gallery was directed by Stefano Fumagalli and Annamaria Maggi who initially chose to follow a program based on the Informal, the Abstract Art and the Pittura Analitica exhibiting artists Carla Accardi, Pietro Consagra, Giorgio Griffa, Pino Pinelli, Giò Pomodoro, Giuseppe Uncini, Claudio Verna. In 1997 the gallery started working with Agostino Bonalumi and in the following year with Enrico Castellani. Significant are also the collaborations – started in the late 90s – with some of the main representatives of the Arte Povera movement, such as Piero Gilardi, Jannis Kounellis and Gilberto Zorio. Since 2000, the gallery has been enriched by new collaborations, inaugurating the exhibitions of sculptors Carlo Lorenzetti, Giuseppe Maraniello and Nunzio. In 2003, other important solo exhibitions were organized, dedicated to: Marco Tirelli, one of the protagonists of the Nuova Scuola Romana, and Claude Viallat, representative of the French Supports / Surfaces movement.

The following year the gallery invited to exhibit Swiss artist Peter Wüthrich, and in 2005 new collaborations were started with American Kenneth Noland, part of the artistic group “Color Field”, with British sculptor Richard Wilson and Australian Lawrence Carroll. Since 2007 the directorship has been entrusted to Annamaria Maggi who continued the gallery’s exhibition programming, reflecting the multiplicity of her studies in the artistic field. Between 2010 and 2015, the gallery organized exhibitions of American artists Vito Acconci and Dennis Oppenheim, along with the promotion of younger artists: Peter Welz, Chiara Lecca and Maria Elisabetta Novello. In 2012 the exhibition activity in the Bergamo rooms ended, temporarily finding as its location the Museo Pecci / SpazioBorgogno in Milan through 2014. In 2016, the new gallery was inaugurated in the evocative spaces of a historic Milanese building, in via Bonaventura Cavalieri 6, with the opening exhibition “A personal view of Abstract painting and sculpture” dedicated to Enrico Castellani, Robert Mangold,

Robert Morris and Kenneth Noland, followed by those of Jannis Kounellis, Maria Elisabetta Novello and Maurizio Nannucci. In 2017 the gallery begun to represent – exclusively in Italy – French artist couple Anne & Patrick Poirier and in 2018 American Keith Sonnier. At the same time the promotion of younger talents, such as Filippo Armellin, Mattia Bosco and Letizia Cariello, continued. In the last thirty years, the gallery has presented more than 90 solos and 20 group exhibitions, published more than 50 volumes and collaborated with Italian and foreign institutions and museums. It also curated the archives Agostino Bonalumi, Enrico Castellani, Giorgio Griffa, Gianfranco Pardi and Giuseppe Uncini and collaborated on the creation of the catalogue raisonné of Carla Accardi (with texts by Germano Celant published in 1999) and Giuseppe Uncini (with texts by Bruno Corà published in 2008).
