Fanta MLN, Milano

Next

Fanta-MLN was founded by Alessio Baldissera, Gloria de Risi and Alberto Zenere, opened originally as Fantaspazio in 2015 in a former warehouse under the railway system in Milan. The exhibitions focused on emerging Italian artists, many of them at their first solo exhibition. After three years of activity (2015 – 2018) the project space became a gallery in September 2018.

The gallery is located in a former depot under the railroad in Viale Monza. The area is a bit dislocated from the center, but easily accessible. What struck us about the space is its architecture. It is a single industrial volume with a high vaulted ceiling, facing the street. Being under the tracks that lead to the Central Station, we are accompanied daily by the noise of passing trains.

Currently on view is Alessandro Agudio at Fanta MLN.

Isla Flotante (*IF) opened its doors in 2011 in the Recoleta neighbourhood as an artist-run space that functioned as a living space, artists studio, and party place. In 2015, IF organised exhibitions in a warehouse in La Boca, and during 2018 they occupied an old wine bottling plant of more than five thousand square meters. Through its ground breaking shows and party atmosphere IF became a meeting point of Buenos Aires art scene, due to their commitment to show young promising artists and promotion of these artists in international art fairs and institutions.

Now IF has its own space in the center of Buenos Aires, in an Art Nouveau styled flat and represents a group of artists.  Recent shows include Tobias Dirty and Mariela Scafati.
