• Carlo Dell'Amico. No Pure Forms No Pure Elements | opening 2nd December 2017 | Monza




Montrasio Arte was founded in Monza in 1939. Nowadays the gallery is dedicated to curated exhibitions both historic and contemporary, which cast a critique and  innovative view on the work of established artists or artists whose works have been somewhat overlooked. At the foundation time the gallery presented mostly paintings from 19th and 20th century, as De Nittis, Fattori, Hayez, Balla, Bucci, Martini, Marussig and Wildt. Montrasio Arte in 1963 started a very rich exhibitions season oriented on Contemporary Art. The most important exhibitions, we can mention are: Renato Birolli, Alfredo Chighine, Roberto Crippa, Lucio Fontana, Fausto Melotti, Ennio Morlotti, Emilio Scanavino, Tancredi Parmeggiani; Floriano Bodini, Leonardo Cremonini, Renato Guttuso, Karl Plattner, Antonio Recalcati, Bepi Romagnoni, Giuseppe Zigaina. More recently we host the exhibitions of: Angelo Savelli, Salvatore Scarpitta, Joseph Beuys, Dennis Oppenheim. Since the foundation, Montrasio Arte collaborates with important Museums and national and international Institutions. Among the most recent collaborations: Joseph Beuys. I gesti, le azioni, i documenti iconici del mitico artista tedesco (Fondazione Ivan Bruschi, Arezzo 2016); Bepi Romagnoni (Galleria del Credito Valtellinese, Milano 2014); Graham Sutherland (Museo della Permanente, Milano 2011); Lucio Fontana (Museo Bodini, Varese 2006); Leonardo Cremonini (Museo della Permanente, Milano 2002; Pinacoteca Nazionale, Bologna 2003); Guido Marussig (Museo Revoltella, Trieste 2003). The Gallery is also a publishing company (Edizioni MontrasioArte). The catalogue includes more than 100 titles and about 20 publications for Italian and foreign Museums. The last one are “Trappolando”, a monography of Fausto Melotti and “Una nota che non c’è” by Giacinto Cerone. In 2007 Montrasio Arte created Harlem Studio Fellowship by Montrasio Arte, nonprofit artist in residence program in New York. Since the creation of the Milan venue in 2001, Montrasio Arte has been producing, exposing and promoting young artists’ works, often exhibiting them close to the Master’s works.
