At the beginning of October 21 at the Milanese gallery 29 ARTS IN PROGRESS will open “Mario Testino: Unfiltered”, a major exhibition in Italy of this legendary photographer and a world exclusive of work never shown before in a gallery. The show will take place in two consecutive exhibitions in Milan, the first from 1st of October – 27th of November and the second from 2nd of December 2021 – 28th of February 2022.
This ambitious exhibition will bring to the attention of Italian and International collectors more than 50 artworks, comprised of intimate portraits and iconic fashion images, carefully selected by the gallery owners and Mario Testino. Alongside his large format photographs, the gallery will also present an exclusive and unpublished body of work, including spontaneous snapshots, available in new formats and editions, thereby revealing a lesser known, more personal side of the artist’s oeuvre, as well as a selection of works from the recent publication ‘Ciao’ (Taschen, 2020), a book dedicated to the artist’s love affair with Italy.
29 ARTS IN PROGRESS, located in the historic area of Sant’Ambrogio, Milan, is a leading art photography gallery representing the work of internationally renowned photographers, with a focus on portraiture and fashion photography. “Working with Mario Testino and his team has been a great pleasure and honour for us” say Eugenio Calini and Luca Casulli, directors of 29 ARTS IN PROGRESS gallery. “It’s wonderful to have the chance to get know the more authentic side of an artist of such talent and above all observe the great trust he has placed in us, a trust which is at the heart of any successful relationship.”
The exhibition “Mario Testino: Unfiltered” will open to the public on the 1st of October 2021 at the gallery in Via San Vittore 13, Milan.
Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 7 pm.
