Our history, artists, projects and partnerships

Paci contemporary gallery

Paci contemporary gallery was founded in 2004, showing the preference towards photography as the main field of investigation of visual arts.
Member of AIPAD (Association of International Photography Art Dealers), the most important international association of photography galleries
in the world, since 2014, the gallery owns a second exhibition space, open during summer season, in the prestigious location of Porto Cervo, the heart of the Costa Smeralda in Sardinia.

Since December 2018 the gallery moved from the historic center to the prestigious new location of the Borgo Wuhrer: an impressive exhibition space, located on three floors and historical ex-center for a famous brewery in Brescia.

From over 14 years the gallery offers to the public and the world of art a wide overview on some of the most important international photographers, represented exclusively for Italy, Europa or in the world.

 

From the black and white theatrical poetry of the masters of analogue photography, exalted by Jerry Uelsmann’s surreality, or by the exposure of a local reality done by Phil Borges, passing by the sublime mysticism of Mario Cravo Neto, to the social criticism of Les Krims or Arthur Tress. Paci contemporary also works to spread artistic projects involving the spectator in unusual sensorial realities, such as the Staged Photography created by Sandy Skoglund, with her magical installations, or with the glass-gellages of Michal Macku, which have started the journey of photography towards the tridimensionality, ending with Teun Hocks’ cinematographic style, which is bridging the gap between painting and photography.

The gallery presents always news curatorial projects, proposing each year new artistic realities, including the European preview of young American photographers as Lori NixGrace Weston and Mei Xian Qiu or the deep theological research of the photography of Nicola Civiero, and Eric Rondepierre, whose work starts always from a base of found footage, namely the recovery of old movies.

Another great artist: Ralph Gibson, internationally acclaimed photographer who focuses his attention on the female body, creating erotic and allusive images, on the edge between reality and fiction, precision and ambiguity. Suspended in a tense, static and crystallized time, his pictures capture reality in its material evidence, and yet manage to become disturbing and enigmatic objects, almost hallucinatory, capable of suggesting sensual energies and deep emotions. Among the latest “new entries” of the gallery: Nancy Burson, undisputed Pioneer of computer-generated portraits, always interested in the interactions between art and science among the first artists to apply digital technology to the genre of photographic portraiture.
