Spazio Nobile: The New Age of Humanism
Spazio Nobile Gallery presents the show The New Age of Humanism, a journey that is both experiential and holistic, physical and cosmic.
The New Age of Humanism, it’s the name of the new collective exhibition of Spazio Nobile Gallery. The show in question celebrates the galleries’ 5 years and a decade of TLmag_True Living of Art & Design magazine. The show is, under the sign of authenticity and both human and organic presence, bringing together over 30 artists, designers and photographers which are presented by the gallery since its inception in 2016.
We find Spazio Nobile Gallery located in the middle of Brussels’ neighbourhood Ixelles. With its beautiful marble fireplaces and year-round green garden, Spazio Nobile imprints its philosophy of living with art and design in these spaces of the bel étage (piano nobile) and his studiolo (cabinet of curiosities) spread throughout seven rooms and the garden of the gallery. The gallery makes for an ideal context to combine with precious sculptural furniture, handmade objects and art photography signed by contemporary artists with whom the gallery actively collaborates. The gallery has opted to strengthen its physical presence in Brussels and to get even closer to its art lovers and collectors. By privileging the quality and nobility of the materials, the beauty and the singularity of its artistic choices, Spazio Nobile creates a sensory and singular path. The New Age of Humanism is a journey that is both experiential and holistic, physical and esoteric, terrestrial and cosmic.
Opening in the lively and cosmopolitan district of the Place Brugmann in Brussels, Lise Coirier and Gian Giuseppe Simeone have united their passions for creation and art history by taking the path of creating a dialogue between contemporary applied arts, design and photography. Without putting any boundaries between the disciplines, visual arts intertwine with fine arts. By giving impetus to the creation of unique pieces, limited editions and installations that are both experimental and artistic, with a particular sensitivity to everything that touches nature and minerality, the gallery has committed itself over the last five years to developing its own philosophy and narrative. Spazio Nobile represents a generation of emerging and internationally renowned artists, designers and photographers, while at the same time bringing the cultures of East and West to the forefront in a dialogue rich in natural and innovative materials. Since its creation, it has curated and installed exhibitions in selected venues reflecting architectural history, art and heritage, such as the Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto in the Yvelines, France; the Ancienne Nonciature at the Grand Sablon in Brussels; the Chalet de la Forêt, a two-star Michelin restaurant in Brussels.
Spazio Nobile Gallery participates in many Belgian and international fairs such as Art Brussels, Luxembourg Art Week, Collectible Design Fair, PAD Paris and PAD London, Design Miami/Basel, Unique Design Shanghai… which in 2020-21 are taking place in a virtual way. In addition, the gallery publishes through Pro Materia, TLmag_True Living of Art & Design (°2008), the biannual art and design magazine, both printed and online, sharing its curated selection and commitment to the artistic community.
