From 28 April to 1 September 2024, the MA*GA in Gallarate (VA) hosts a solo exhibition by Davide Maria Coltro (Verona, 1967), pioneer and master of technological experimentation, entitled Media Abstraction.

The exhibition, which is part of the programming of the Museum's activities in the Post-Digital Era supported by the 2021 Culture Fund of the Ministry of Culture, is the new chapter of the research promoted by the MA*GA on digital art.

The exhibition, curated by Alessandro Castiglioni and with the critical contribution of Elena Pontiggia, presents the most recent production by Davide Maria Coltro in which the media language, characteristic of his most authentic style, takes on new abstract and synthetic connotations, capable of highlighting the relationships among the fundamental elements of electronic painting, such as bits and pixels, in a code he himself defined as "painting beyond matter".


The project is in continuity with a broader area of analysis on abstract art, from the Concrete Art Movement to Analytical Painting, developed by the MA*GA. In this context, Coltro interprets the themes that characterize the present such as the complex dialogue between art and science, the new cognitive frontiers of Visual Studies and the redefinition of the relationship between art and spirituality. His media painting, thanks to his profound knowledge of the digital world, creates surprising expressive possibilities that also involve neuroaesthetics.

The exhibition itinerary is made up of a series of new installations, specifically designed and built for the museum spaces, in which the Media Paintings are characterized by a constantly changing abstract generative flow and designed by the artist remotely.

The rooms of the MA*GA thus become a place of silent meditation in which the contemplation of evolving images brings the public closer to a meditative and private dimension. This aspect will then acquire a further meaning within the city fabric of Gallarate: Coltro's works will be transmitted in the city's digital communication totems, re-proposing the concept of "Civic Framework" that the artist had already presented in Shanghai, China, in 2006.
