Paolo Ventura first solo exhibition on the West Coast

Opening reception Saturday, January 18th, 4-7pm. Galerie XII Los Angeles is pleased to celebrate its first anniversary with the solo exhibition of world-renowned, Milan-based artist Paolo Ventura. The exhibition of Ventura’s magical photographic works, “An Invented World”, spans six series made over the last decade and will provide the most comprehensive overview of the renowned Italian artist’s oeuvre on the West Coast to date, including the debut of new works. Paolo Ventura (b. 1968) has been referred to as one of the art scene’s most interesting storytellers with his timeless and charmingly enigmatic works. Widely known for his elaborate narrative series acted out by the artist and his family, the whimsical allegories touch upon many facets of the human condition within life-size diorama cityscapes, reminiscent of war-time Italy, which are constructed entirely by the artist. By creating fictional worlds as stage design, the artist is able to physically inhabit the stories of his imagination.
