Gianna Scoino: Rebels at Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Barcelona, April 26 – May 26, 2017

The Italian Cultural Institute of Barcelona remembers the recent loss of artist Gianna Scoino with an exhibition of female faces. The faces, of beloved or famous women, are representations of women’s inner and outer disguises and dramas, each witnessing the complexity and richness of the female universe.

Gianna Scoino was an Italian artist who lived and worked in Florence, and exhibited worldwide. Her continued exploration of materials and unusual textures is reflected in her use of papers and fabrics. On September 30, 2014, L’ Accademia delle Arti del Disegno of Florence nominated her Accademica (Academician). She was the first woman artist to be bestowed this honor since Artemisia Gentileschi in the 1600’s.
