ERLarte - The exhibitions at the Palacongressi di Rimini, is a new initiative by the Italian Exhibition Group in collaboration with Art Preview, Augeo Art Space and the Rimini gallerist Matteo Sormani.
The language of contemporary art, through the works of various artists, enters permanently the Palacongressi, a place that with its distinctive and modern architecture, a few steps from the historic center of Rimini, has characterized the city landscape for the past decade.
The first exhibition scheduled, from 7 July to 31 December 2021, in the Convivio space, is by the Rimini artist Luca Giovagnoli. The exhibition is curated by Matteo Sormani / Art Preview / Augeo Art Space.
Luca Giovagnoli was born in Rimini in 1963 where he still lives today. After completing his studies, the first approach to art takes place with graphics and the paintings for important advertising campaigns such as Peugeot, Agfa and Citizen.
