Paci contemporary, member of AIPAD, was founded in 2004 with the aim of creating a new space for the evolution of the contemporary artistic research. The works exhibited unveil the preference towards photography as the main field of investigation. The artists are represented by the gallery for Italy, Europe or for the World. From the black and white theatrical poetry of the masters of analogue photography, exalted by Jerry Uelsmann’s surreality, or by the exposure of a local reality done by Phil Borges, passing by the sublime mysticism of Mario Cravo Neto, to the social criticism of Les Krims or Arthur Tress, up to the meaningful colours in the photographs created by Clark & Pougnaud or Maggie Taylor, which are opening the viewer’s inner and fantastic imagination.
Paci contemporary also works to spread artistic projects involving the spectator in unusual sensorial realities, such as the Staged Photography created by Sandy Skoglund, with her magical installations, or with the glass-gellages of Michal Macku, which have started the journey of photography towards the tridimensionality, ending with Teun Hocks’ cinematographic style, which is bridging the gap between painting and photography. The gallery presents always news curatorial projects, proposing every year new artistic reality, including the European preview of young American pho- tographers as Lori Nix, Grace Weston and Mei Xian Qiu or the deep theological research of the photography of Nicola Civiero, and Eric Rondepierre, whose work starts always from a base of found footage, namely the recovery of old movies. Paci contemporary has also got a special attentiona special attention towards the new medias.
