The Galo Art Gallery in Torino, Italy, is a unique exhibition space, focusing on contemporary art from post graffiti to pop art, encompassing a wide range of visual media. Since opening our doors back in 2010, the gallery celebrates established artists and promotes up and coming talent, primarily in the field of street art.
Friday 1st November 2019, from 17:30 to 21:00, during the hottest weekend in Turin, between Artissima and Club to Club, and in the coolest gallery of the Piedmontese capital, the Galo Art Gallery and Drago Publisher is proud to present the exhibition Memento Mori: All Stars. The gallery will host two individual exhibitions representing the latest publications of the publishing house Dago. The book Crash Kid, a Hip Hop legacy is about the birth and evolution of the Hip Hop phenomenon in Italy.
Crash Kid, a Hip Hop Legacy, is a book that, with more than 400 images - most of them unpublished - documents the life of Massimo "Crash Kid" Colonna, from the first Hip Hop concerts of the 80s to the birth of "Zulu Party” Crash Kid, reveals the dedication and influence that the artist has given to the whole scene and confirms it as a legendary reference point for the movement.
Vangelo,by Paolo Cenciarelli, is a book that focuses on the Italian Rap scene at the end of the Nineties. This is the background of the photographer Paolo Cenciarelli who, between 1998 and 2015, told the story of an epochal change, the entrance of the Italian Underground into a new millennium made of music, concerts, tattoos and a constant counter culture under track.
Friday night will be accompanied by DJ Set by DJ NextONE A journey into his Music.
