C-Gallery is a new contemporary art space located at Via Ventura 6, in the heart of Milan's Art District. C-Gallery's program spans the global contemporary art scene via their focus on international artists who create new visual codes and expand the art market beyond the local. C-Gallery's exhibitions bring together distinct artistic languages with the aim of offering an assortment of the most innovative contemporary art works that move beyond art world fads.
The gallery's inaugural exhibition will be held on Gallery in collaboration with South Africa's Gallery MOMO is bringing the Shadow” a touring exhibition curated by the American artists Jackson and Ingrid LaFleur. Selling the Shadow is an international, cross disciplinary presentation that examines the relationship between art and social practise.
Selling the Shadow presents the work of 21 international artists from different countries including Cameroon, Congo, France, Italy, Jamaica, United States and South Africa. While vastly different in their personal narratives and method of art making, what each of them share is their confrontation with themes around identity, history, and the social structures that play a role, not only in creating their own work, but also in its consumption and the way in which it is activated.
