Reception of Stefano Losi, Painter and Poet, at the United Nations in New York - Thursday, March 3rd, 6pm

Violent Dances Fade is the art project of Stefano Losi, started in Milan in the early 1990s, further developed in London and currently active in New York, combining classical yet extremely powerful human figures and intense poetry.

After a series of events organized in Europe since the 1990s, including several shows and poetry readings in formal and alternative spaces, in December 2008 he presented "The imperfect dialectics of experience", a Solo Exhibition of paintings and poems at the United Nations in New York.

Three books collecting visual arts and epigrams, presenting an overview of the artistic work in the respective creative periods, were published in 1996, 2001 and 2010.  The most recent volume, titled “Under the Burnt Walls”, includes a foreword by Antonio Maria Costa (Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations), and was presented at the 2010 edition of BookExpo America.

A Reception, combining recent art works and poetry, is planned on Thursday, March 3rd, 6pm at the United Nations in New York (Ex-Press Bar, General Assembly Building), presented by the UNSRC Circolo Culturale Italiano and the Literary Cultural Circle of the United Nations, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of New York.

Curated by UNSRC Literary Cultural Circle, in collaboration with Italian Cultural Institute, New York
