Mazzoleni was founded in Turin in 1986 by Giovanni and Anna Pia Mazzoleni, as a natural evolution of their private collection started in the 1950s. The historic Turin space, which occupies three floors of Palazzo Panizza, overlooking the city-centre Piazza Solferino, has since 2014 been flanked by the London gallery in the Mayfair art district.
Over the past three decades Mazzoleni has organised solo and group exhibitions of more than 200 prominent Italian and international artists from across the 20th century with an exhibition programme focused on museum-calibre Italian art from the post war period and recently the contemporary panorama, working in close collaboration with artists’ estates and foundations.
Recent critically acclaimed exhibitions have included a major Alberto Burri exhibition in 2015, Piero Manzoni. Achromes: Linea Infinita, in collaboration with the Piero Manzoni Foundation, Fontana/Melotti. Angelic Spaces and Infinite Geometries, Neon in Contextual Play: Joseph Kosuth and Arte Povera, LIGHT IN MOTION: Balla, Dorazio, Zappettini; Michelangelo Pistoletto: Origins and Consequences; and Equilibrium. An Idea for Italian Sculpture; Nunzio. The Shock of Objectivity; Hans Hartung and Art Informel; Lucio Fontana | Enrico Baj | Piero Manzoni; Melissa McGill: In Venice; BURRI, KOUNELLIS, NUNZIO. Ethic of the Artwork and Marinella Senatore: Make it Shine; Massimo Vitali. I saw you; Salvatore Astore. The Eyes of Sculpture; Marinella Senatore. Afterglow; Andrea Francolino. But then Gaia the Earth came into being; Toscani chez Mazzoleni; VICTOR VASARELY: Einstein in the Sky with Diamonds.
All exhibitions are accompanied by fully illustrated monographs, often featuring newly commissioned research contributing to current critical and art historical discourse.
In addition, in recent years Mazzoleni has been increasingly present at international art fairs, participating across Basel, London, Paris, Hong Kong, New York and Miami, amongst others.
