Galerie XII Los Angeles is celebrating its first anniversary with the solo exhibition of world-renowned, Milan-based photographer Paolo Ventura. The exhibition runs from January 18 to March 14, 2020, with a public opening reception with the artist on January 18 from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM. “An Invented World” spans six series over the last decade and will provide the most comprehensive overview of the celebrated Italian artist’s oeuvre on the West Coast to date, including the debut of new works. Italian photographer Paolo Ventura (b. 1968) has been referred to as one of the art scene’s most interesting storytellers with his timeless and charmingly enigmatic works. Paolo Ventura has been the subject of more than forty-five international solo exhibitions since 2006 and was featured in the Italian pavilion of the 2011 Venice Biennale. His work is held in prominent collections of museums across Europe and North America. Galerie XII is located near LA’s famed Museum Row on Miracle Mile and is open Wednesday to Saturday from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
