At 29 ARTS IN PROGRESS, the Milan gallery on Via San Vittore, the photographs of Gabriele Micalizzi, guest of Spigola, a Collater.al podcast, are on display. On the occasion of the interview, we had the opportunity to delve into what is the photojournalist’s activity especially in war territory. Titled A Kind of Beauty, the exhibition open from today April 4 is curated by Tiziana Castelluzzo. The exhibition presents a selection of photographs, ranging from black and white printed with silver salts to color, carefully chosen from negatives kept in the artist’s archive.

The images on display capture significant moments from the major theaters of conflict over the past two decades, from the tumultuous Arab Spring to Middle Eastern conflicts against the caliphate to the current crises in Ukraine and Palestine. The exhibition is notable for its innovative approach to documentary photography, embracing an aesthetic and meaning that transcends mere informational purpose. Micalizzi’s works not only document conflicts, but evoke an autonomous and coherent world, rich in poetry and power. The photographer’s artistic approach induces the viewer to reflect on the complex meanings of historical events, conveying emotions and feelings through each shot.
