ML Fine Art was founded by Matteo Lampertico in Milan in 2007. In 2015, the London branch of the gallery was opened at 15 Old Bond Street. While the gallery’s principal focus is modern and contemporary art, Matteo Lampertico also deals in Old Masters art, his earliest speciality.
The program focuses on Italian artists of the second post-war period and their dialogue with the international avant-garde. Each exhibition is accompanied by a catalog featuring original research by Italian and international authorities. In recent years, Laura Cherubini and Hans Ulrich Obrist have discussed Carla Accardi, Serge Lemoine has written about Franco Grignani, Jürgen Pech on Max Ernst and Gian Enzo Sperone on Aldo Mondino.
In addition to the exhibition calendar, the gallery also participates in international art fairs such as TEFAF, Miart, and the Biennale Internazionale di Antiquariato di Firenze, among others.
In the autumn of 2020, ML Fine Art will present an exhibition project with two shows curated by Studio for Propositional Cinema dedicated to Emilio Prini, presenting historic works by the enigmatic Piedmontese artist in dialogue with select contemporary artists who have demonstrated sensibilities to Prini’s research.
