The Wall Project is the series of exhibitions curated by Federico Montagna, managing director of Artoday & digital curator, and Myriam Kuehne Rauner, which involves the most talented emerging painters on the international contemporary art scene. A window where the artists can show a unique and unreleased work that appears on the wall in Angelo della Pergola 1 gallery in Milan. An analogic display in the real world on which the artist shares with the public his latest researches, without using any hashtag, but leaving one written on the wall, instead.

The Wall Project No. 4


“Some Things Last a Long Time”

23.01.2019 – 30.01.2019


The Wall No. 4 shows off the unreleased work “Some Things Last a Long Time” by Andrea Carpita, the first of a new series dedicated to the tormented songwriter Daniel Johnston. Carpita  (1988) lives and works in Carrara. He graduated in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Carrara in 2015. His research led him to go through various stages of the representation process: From a fantastic and delicate imaginary to reminiscent phytomorphic suggestions of Japanese aesthetics, up to a radical synthesis of the visible that in the Minimum Portraits series uses few points and lines to summarize a body, a face, a landscape, without having the pretension to tell everything the story about it. His most recent exhibitions include: in 2017 Passengers curated by Claudia Contu at The Flat-Massimo Carasi, Milan and TU35 EXPANDED at the Luigi Pecci Center for Contemporary Art, Prato. In 2018 Birthmarks at The Flat-Massimo Carasi, Milan and at the MAC Museo Arte Contemporanea in Lissone for the Lissone 2018 exhibition-prize.

“This work is probably the first of a series dedicated to Daniel Johnston, singer and painter considered the greatest outsider of the last school of American songwriters. The idea for this poster-tribute come up with a flash of inspiration, falling in love with the tenacious and naive opposing intention of a person otherwise destined to fail”.
