The BAart space in Agliano Terme reopens its doors after the winter break and presents the first exhibition of the new season: Still Thinking by Asti artist Gabriele Sanzo scheduled from March 24 to May 3, 2024.
Visitors will be able to see a selection of canvases made with mixed media depicting human faces dissolving into abstract shapes and evoking mixed emotions.
This is how the artist describes the exhibition:

STILL THINKING is an exhibition, as the title states, that I have yet to think about.
A metacognitive process to which is added an unconscious question: does this exhibition really belong to me?
I wanted to bring a completely different sign and vision to what is my sensibility, accepting the challenge and its consequences.
Painting becomes a need and a narrative of wanting to get out of the box, a sense of alienation toward what is the everyday.

He continues with a reflection on the techniques and poetics of the exhibition:

Expressions bordering on the abstract, through large canvases of mixed media, as if to remind us that we are not the sum of the individual parts, but a much more generic and broader vision.
STILL THINKING is perhaps the bravest exhibition I have done in recent years, where the illustrator and surrealist Gabriele lets go of the turmoil and anguish of the moment, in a more intimate but fierce form.
A necessary exhibition, at least for me

BAart

BAart è entrato a far parte della rete museale astigiana della Fondazione Asti Musei. Non solo luogo di cultura e arte, è anche la casa della Barbera e dei vini di Agliano e chi visita BAart potrà degustare le etichette dei produttori, scoprendo le sfumature e le caratteristiche di ciascun vino. Oltre ai singoli calici, si potranno acquistare i pacchetti degustazione Barbera Experience, dedicati alle varie tipologie di Barbera, e Agliano Experience che comprendono, oltre alla Barbera, gli altri vini prodotti ad Agliano Terme.La prenotazione è obbligatoria per i gruppi. L’arte della Barbera è raccontata dalle immagini e dai suoni di una installazione video-artistica realizzata dallo studio MUVI Lab di Vicenza. Le voci dei produttori di Agliano Terme si mescolano ai rumori della natura, con i suoi profondi silenzi e le inaspettate pause, richiamando i potenti contrasti sonori dei grandi compositori classici. All’interno di Bart sarà possibile vedere anche il video di presentazione di Agliano Terme, il docu-film sulla produzione della Barbera d’Asti, che raccoglie le storie e i racconti dei vignaioli di Agliano Terme, e il video sulla Barbera d’Asti realizzato in collaborazione con il Consorzio Barbera d’Asti e Vini del Monferrato.
