For all of those art fans that missed Carla Viparelli's exhibition held at Sixty29 Contemporary last September (2015), we announce the release of the newest Digital Art-Chival video featuring the Neapolitan artist's show that was expressly created for our Culver City space.
From September 12th to the 28th, 2015, prolific and eclectic Neapolitan artist Carla Viparelli will exhibit her new body of works expressly conceived for Sixty29 Contemporary.
The title “Silicosophy” comes out from the conjunction of terms Silicon and Philosophy to express the research of the artist focused on Art and Science where Silicon, with its many possibilities of changes, becomes the absolute protagonist of artworks in motion.
The artist explores under aesthetic and philosophic aspect not only the many mutations of Silicon as a mineral, but explores the possibility of creating art works in motion. Paintings that from the static nature of canvases move on toward artworks in movement: pictorial worlds which come to life, intersect and alternate one other, almost performing a dance of possibilities of beauty.
In addition to this exhibit, the artist will hold a lecture at Italian Cultural Center of Los Angeles on September 22nd, 2015 from 6 to 9PM. During the lecture a selection of works and a video will be presented to the public.
September 12 - 28, 2015
Opening reception: Thursday, September 17, 2015, 6:00 - 9:00 PM

To welcome the new year Sixty29 Contemporary has upgraded its old website with a new design layout that offers simple and streamlined viewing through multiple platforms options such as laptops, mobile smartphones and tablets.
As per the art on display, we have rearranged a few works. We have some brand new works sent by artist Sallie Whistler Marcucci in addition to three old ones of hers dating from 1972. Viewers can see Sallie's creative progression in the last 43 years. We have also added abstract paintings by Carlo Marcucci from his new Floaters series.
Carlo's Marcucci's solo exhibition "Staples" held at Lora Schlesinger Gallery in Santa Monica, California, has recently concluded. A video of the exhibition will soon be posted for anyone that missed the show.
