Alfonso Artiaco gallery is proud to announce the celebrating opening of his 30 years of activity, Saturday 17th of December at 7 pm.
On occasion of its 30 years of activity, the Alfonso Artiaco gallery presents a group show that aims to celebrates three decades of work with a selection of pieces that 40 artists have dedicated to the gallery.
In the show the itinerary that animates the gallery located in Piazzetta Nilo, site specific works along with pieces never shown before, meet intending to tell a story of international research and a link to the territory. The aim is to do an evaluation and an analysis between the goals reached and the ones still to be realized. The works exhibited range from paintings to sculptures, from installations to photos through an ideal path that joins the 1988, debut year of the gallery in Corso Nicola Terracciano in Pozzuoli, to 2016.
Thirty years spent promoting contemporary art in Pozzuoli first and in Naples after, outlining a research that has never set territorial or personal limits, focusing on a program that over the time has consolidated strong relations and establish new proposals.

The Alfonso Artiaco gallery was founded in 1986 in Pozzuoli (Naples) and opened its space with the group exhibition “Possibilità di Collezione”. In 1995 the gallery moved in Via Mameli, Pozzuoli, with an exhibition by Carl Andre and Sol LeWitt, until 1997 when it came back to Corso Nicola Terracciano, the first location, with Jannis Kounellis’ show.
The gallery moved to Naples in 2003, in Piazza dei Martiri and inaugurated the new space with the show by Gerard Merz “Fragments Napoli 2003”. In 2010 a project space was launched with an exhibition by Magnus Plessen. In November 2012 the Alfonso Artiaco Gallery moved to Piazzetta Nilo, Naples, opening its new premises with the show by Liam Gillick and a tribute to Sol LeWitt.
