The demand is such that in recent years there has been found to give the market demands more and more confirmations that the representations in Rome, the city of History; passed present and future.

It’s hard to be a woman of the art system, I say this because personally experienced more than two decades years, because the system is still very masculine as many systems in the world today. During the past 900 centuries there was a great start to change, it was very rare especially in Italy see women gallery owners. Today the situation has improved, however underneath it there is always a bit ‘of discrimination across Europe.

The gallery has a function now of innovation, mediation, support, and is a necessity, especially for young artists who often have no place in our museums, too focused on the past, space-saving on the visions of our future. But the art needs to be and to live free …

Interview I with Giulia Abate of Mucciaccia Contemporary – Gallery of Rome

1) How did your love for the art? And what steps are you reaching today?

He has always been fascinated by the art world and, above all, the artists. For me, the paintings represent my world, my life, kept me company. I accompanied my father to work (art photographer) in artists’ studios and galleries. I remember the trip to the Museum of the Castello di Rivoli, when Kounellis made an installation in which the floor of a huge hall was completely covered with small glasses filled with Brandy. Strong smell is one of the most poignant memories of my childhood. Another highlight for me was the atmosphere of the dark room, when the white sheet in the liquid appeared the images in black and white, to me, magical. My next project in the pipeline is to open a contemporary art gallery, which give visibility to new artists, who represent the contemporary.

2) Can you describe your philosophy in 3 expressions?

Love, deep for art in all its expression, Curiosity towards all cultures and Enthusiasm.

3) What is your relationship with the artists and as you explore the art of today?

I think an artist and as a medium, an interpreter and a creator of images that tell us a world that is sometimes incomprehensible. They have the ability to be as of the antennas. They manage to capture and grasp the signals of what is happening in society, with a point of view which then tell in their works, with an original look and personal. So it is crucial to enter their studio talk and live in their world to perceive their vision.

4) Looking at a work of art is like looking at the artist’s soul. If their paintings could talk they would say nowadays there?

Today we live in a world very complex even the highest art forms express this historical period of great global transformation.

5) How important is the exhibition space for the work relationship and how it affects?

The traditional exhibition spaces, such as galleries or museums were, and still are, very important for the dissemination of the work of art but, today, what excites me are the works included in urban settings, when with their force are imposed, transform and give new life to their environment.

6) What determines the value of a work of contemporary art?

The economic value of a work of art follows the rules of the market, supply and demand. Unlike it is regarding the artistic value, which is determined by the quality of work and time.

7) Does the concept forward in contemporary art-back, what do you think?

The contemporary work of art lives our time, good or bad it is. Tells us then, perhaps, we are attracted to a job rather than another because we recognize ourselves in it. We must understand what is meant by forward-back in the ‘art … it is normal that there is a before and an after: you have to look back to go forward.

8) What would you like to convey to the new audience? and that theme do you prefer?

I would like the audience to turn into passionate people. Because art and culture should be the foundation for future society. There is a theme that I prefer but in me is a tie, perhaps nostalgic for painting and sculpture.

9) We talk about the contemporary art market, as you can direct new collectors today?

The guideline for new collectors is, in my opinion, always choose what they like, what excites, then considering also the economic aspect, because art has often proved a good investment.

10) To finish, Art is beauty and is eternal, what would you leave to our future ….

The aesthetic concept of beauty in the ‘900 has been completely unhinged … the art today is a reflection and a search for new languages, so we live in the research of a new aesthetic.

I have no idea preordained on the track that I would leave in the future. I’d like to offer to the new languages ​​the opportunity to express themselves, so I look more to the present.
