Opening

The Blueproject Foundation presents the group show “Still Blue”, from June 21 to November 4, 2018 at Il Salotto. This exhibition hosts for the second time some of the emblematic works that made up “Blue. Tribute to the Invisible”, the opening exhibition of the foundation that will celebrate its fifth anniversary next September.

This new presentation adds works by Daniel Buren and Yves Klein to the group formed by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Lucio Fontana. Keeping blue as the main axis of the exhibition, the still added to the title condenses some of the reasons for the current show: the historical tradition of painting, in which the still life -almost a synonym of painting in the past centuries- was surpassed by the avant-garde and gave way to an art detached from conventions; the stillness, that calm, quietness and even silence that the blue color provokes in its contemplation; and the still as the fact of remaining, of resisting, of (re)affirming oneself in a present, as the foundation itself does in its incipient trajectory, whose journey begins related to what was, what is and what will always be the symbol of the invisible: the blue.
