The exhibition is the fourth appointment of FAVENTIA. Ceramica italiana contemporanea [Contemporary Italian Ceramics], an exhibition project curated by Roberto Lacarbonara and Gaspare Luigi Marcone, which will last from January 12th, 2024, to January 11th, 2025, and it involves twelve Italian artists invited to exhibit sculptures and installations made of ceramic. The project hosts interventions on a monthly basis. In this edition, the presentation of the works will take place on the 12th of each month: a “numerology” that alludes to cyclicity and synthesis of earthly, spiritual and temporal elements.

Hidetoshi Nagasawa. 1969-2018

04.04.2024 – 20.07.2024

BUILDING presents, from April 4th to July 20th, 2024, Hidetoshi Nagasawa. 1969-2018, a comprehensive retrospective curated by Giorgio Verzotti, dedicated to one of the greatest artists working in Italy since the late 1960s, located in three exhibition venues in Milan: BUILDING, Gallery Moshe Tabibnia, Casa degli Artisti.


Through a selection of around 40 works, this exhibition intends to document an overview of the artist’s entire career: from the videos testifying his early performances (in some respects similar to the Land and Body Art projects from the same period), passing by way of the first sculptures in which the gesture is always implied as the primary matrix and arriving at the large-scale sculptures, frequently based on daring acts of equilibrium, which were the works most frequently associated with Nagasawa.
