Cardi Black Box — Jörg Immendorff - Late Paintings

In midst of the twirl of pretty colors and drama, fashion week has stood quite still for a moment in this quiet little town.
The opening of Jörg Immendorff's last works at Cardi Black Box was a complete success. The variety and the quality of the people was exquisite and exciting, and Grey Goose was on everyone's tongue.

According to the pretty, pretty leaflet, the late works of Immendorff contain an evident critique to the collectivity balanced by the individual's desire for change but — if before his vision was influenced by ideology and by his concrete experience of reality — now it appears as the consequence of an inner gaze, that of a man looking at life through a different, renewed consciusness.

We don't know what whoever wrote this was smoking, but we tend to agree. There's a clear contrast between classical figures and out-of-focus contemparory elements.

Take a peak...

Barbara Berlusconi and Martina Mondadori.

At art openings there are usually a lot of people. At gallery openings even more.

Of course the art is in the centre of attention, but we must not forget that where people congregate there is always a nice opportunity to show off.

As you can see, we weren't the only ones to document this spectacular opening.

We never really got the concept of lining celebrities up in front of the art pieces. Buyers might be confused as to whether the painting comes with or without the shadows...

Camikaze gazing over the crowd.

Edoardo was the kind guy that invited us. Not only did he make sure we got to see the magnificent pieces on the wall, but he also got us drunk off the wall...

Kiss, kiss. The cultured Stranazione Team.
