FOUNDED IN 1972
DIRECTED BY Uber, Cristiano, Massimiliano Calori
The Gallery was established in 1972 by Uber Calori, now supervisor, and from 1998 is managed by his sons Cristiano and Massimiliano. The gallery has organized many solo exhibitions of the european art masters of the second half of the Nineteenth Century: Enrico Castellani in 1987, Piero Dorazio 1989 and 1994, Toti Scialoja 1989 and 1994, Georges Mathieu 1990 and 2004, Daniel Spoerri 1990 and 2004, Nam June Paik and Angelo Savelli 1991, Sebastian Matta 1993, Fabio Mauri 1995, Gianni Bertini 1991 and 2005, Nobuyoshi Araki 2004 and 2008, Aldo Tagliaferro 2006, Rodolfo Arico’ 2007, Mario Cresci 2009. All the exhibitions include editions curated by notable art critics and historians.
The gallery comes from a project by Silvia Paola Ubiali who, after graduating in Modern Literature with art specialization at the University of Milan, different marketing and foreign trade business experiences, and later as a collaborator in an important gallery of ancient and modern art, spontaneously orients her interests to the contemporary, particularly to the period that goes from the ’60s until today at international level, ranging from classical aesthetics to experimentation. The gallery opens in March 2009 with an exhibition dedicated to International Madi Movement of which Marelia Gallery is now the contact point for Italy. From historical artists with already consolidated experiences to the work of young artists bringing new languages, the aim of the gallery is to raise awareness of the many forms of artistic expression to the widest possible audience to witness an art that evolves over time, but always remains the ultimate expression of the human being. A strong orientation towards the territory characterize the work of the gallery, materialized in collaboration with local institutions (including Fondazione Creberg, Museo Diocesano Adriano Bernareggi, Accademia Tadini in Lovere, Accademia di Belle Arti G. Carrara and the botanical garden Lorenzo Rota) and private partners (Spazio Arte Hangar Audi and the hotel chain Accorhotels).
