The Italian Embassy Cultural Centre invites you to the Inauguration of the Photo Exhibition – Gabriele Basilico, a selection of n.61 photographs shot by the great Italian photographer between 1978 and 2012.
The idea of the exhibition was influenced and inspired by a 2001 book, Gabriele Basilico 55, for which Basilico had presented a selection of 55 photos, which he believed to be at the time, some of his most interesting photos and, now, we wanted to present a sort of “Best Of” intended for an international audience.
The selection of the works starts from 1978, the year Gabriele started working on a project that would mark a moment of transition from which he would never look back: “Milan, Potraits of Factories”, a sort of cataloging of what was once the Milanese industrial reality. It was for him a passage of extreme importance, which marked the almost definitive abandonment of a photojournalist vision in favour of the urban landscape and of architecture. It is very exciting to think about how his vision of the urban environment and his way of describing it changed from 1978 to 2012, when the attention towards what was once the single building become a broad survey of cities.
Venue: MUSEO CAMERA – CENTRE FOR THE PHOTOGRPHIC ARTS- Shri Ganesh Mandir Marg, DLF Phase IV, Sector 28, Gurugram, Haryana 122002
The exhibition is open on all days (except Moday) from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm and will be live until 17th July 2022.
