Giulio Paolini
Artistic currents

Giulio Paolini was born in Genoa in 1940. He attended the Istituto Tecnico Industriale Statale graduating in graphic design in 1959. Visiting exhibitions and museums he began his artistic career in the field of painting with avant-garde solutions that soon led him into the vein of Conceptual Art. In this context he analyzes the relationship between the artist and the work and between the work and the viewer. He is interested in photography, which often enters his compositions, and theatrical scenography. The critic Germano Celant involves him in that group of innovative artists who will make up the Arte Povera group, but he differs from these for his conceptual research. His exhibition career takes place in Italy and abroad in the most important galleries that deal with the artistic avant-garde. There are numerous exhibitions in public spaces starting from his many participations in the Venice Biennale, the first of which dates back to 1970.
