Mimmo Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea
The activity of the gallerist Mimmo Scognamiglio in the Neapolitan cultural life starts in December 1995 with the opening of the gallery “Scognamiglio e Teano”; the human experience and the visual practice acquired while working with Lucio Amelio, in more than 10 years, allowed Mimmo Scognamiglio to outline a personal exhibiting way. The space of his art gallery has become an important reference for both national and international artists with well-established aesthetic experiences, as well as for many young artists. Since November 2000, the gallery changed its name into “Mimmo Scognamiglio artecontemporanea”, starting a wide range of activities, planning many shows in public and private spaces, organizing meetings and seminars on art and culture and cooperating with avant-garde publishing houses and curators. In June 2007 Mimmo Scognamiglio opened the doors of his new exhibition area in Milan with a new solo show by Antony Gormley, one of the most significant contemporary artists of international fame. Spacetime opens in a 200 square meters area in Corso di Porta Nuova, on the first floor of a building that house several creative enterprises, later to become a fresh, new hub for art lovers. In September 2011 the gallerist moved again in the spaces of Via Ventura, 6 in Lambrate where together with others galleries has collaborated in the creation of a new art core in Milan. In November 2015 Scognamiglio finally returned to the heart of the city, in the neighborhood of Brera, in Via Goito 7 and inaugurated the new gallery with an exhibition celebrating 20 years of activity as a gallerist.
