Keane: Biroldo and the #loveproject

Keane: Biroldo and the #loveproject

Quite a few people have pointed out that the amount of articles on barganews.com have diminished somewhat over the past three months or so.  We are still in the quieter winter season here in Barga so some of that reduced “noise” is logical but also at the same time those of you connected to social networks will […]

Vendere o Donare un’opera? Quando si vende un’opera? Invece quando si dona un’opera? Cambia l’opera se cambia la sua destinazione? L’opera a chi è destinata? Quando si definisce un’opera Compiuta? Da cosa si percepisce il valore di un’opera ? Condividere un valore attraverso l’opera Donare come atto di Provocazione Donare x Provocare, Provocare una Percezione […]

Duomo of Barga icon exhibition closing

Duomo of Barga icon exhibition closing

The exhibition of paintings about the 212 bas relief figures on the Duomo in Barga closes this week in the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia

There are few, if any, churches in Western Europe to rival Barga’s Duomo for sheer provocative mystery. From its near-cubist architecture to its peculiar relationship with a distant mountain arch, the great marble edifice overlooking the Serchio Valley is an encyclopedia of questions that yield few unambiguous answers. Now comes the painter Keane, who has been […]

Exhibition “Digital? no grazie” opens at La Galera

Exhibition “Digital? no grazie” opens at La Galera

The original patent name for the first transistor went by this description: Semiconductor amplifier; three-electrode circuit element utilizing semi conductive materials. It was an innocuous-sounding phrase. But this invention netted the Bell team the 1956 Nobel Prize for Physics, and allowed scientists and product engineers far greater control over the flow of electricity. It's no exaggeration that transistors have enabled some of humankind's biggest leaps in technology, they altered the course of technology, and in the process, human history, too.

The fourth cultural event this year at La Galera opened on Sunday. La Galera in Fornaci di Barga with Giulio Turriani at the helm is gradually becoming the in place to be seen at with a mixture of good food, beer, wine and interesting people. Sunday nights at La Galera is also the night when […]

The Duomo of Barga and the Duomo of Lucca paintings

The work is still at the charcoal drawing stage before the painting starts in earnest but already there are 20 canvases on the walls of the studio in various stages of completion.

All last winter there was a continuous trickle of images coming out of Keane‘s studio in Barga Vecchia and being published on various social networks. Finally those paintings were then seen in their entirety and in a context that made perfect sense as they could be viewed just a few scant metres away from their […]
