Alfredo Pirri

 

The Artist

Alfredo Pirri was born in Cosenza, Italy, in 1957. He lives and works in Rome, is one of the best-known artists working there. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and graduated with a degree in Painting.
His work, between painting and sculpture, architecture and installation, gains international recognition in the mid-80s. Color, matter, volume and space are instrumental to his practice which finds, in the relationship with light, the origin of a research which continuously reinvents itself. The work of Alfredo Pirri harmonically confronts architecture and constantly tends to the creation of an archetypal place, a space for dwelling connected to a public function.
Alfredo Pirri has exhibited in several museums and biennials, in Italy and abroad, among which: MACRO Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma (2017), Nomas Foundation (2016-2017), Museo Novecento, Florence (2015); London Design Festival (2015); National Gallery of Modern Art, Rome with the semi-permanent installation "Passi" (2012-2016); Palazzo Te, Mantova (2013) e Project Biennial D-0 ARK Underground Konjic, Bosnia Herzegovina (2013), where "Passi" is permanently exhibited; National Archaeological Museum Reggio Calabria (2011) with his permanent installation "Piazza"; Visual Arts Centre Pescheria, Pesaro (2007); Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Parigi (2006); Havana Biennial (2001); French Academy in Rome -Villa Medici (2000); MoMa PS1, New York (1999); Korrespondenzen, Walter Gropius Bau, Berlino (1992); Venice Biennial (1988).
His recent collaborations with architects Nicola di Battista (director of Domus) and Efisio Pitfalls (Studio PROAP, Lisbon) were exhibited in 2015 at the British School in Rome.
He has taught at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, at the Sapienza University in Rome, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo. He is currently teaching Painting at the Academy in Frosinone and Visual Arts Advisor at the American Academy in Rome.
