Curated by Paul Smith & Friends // meet Alberto Gallo
Curated by Paul Smith & Friends participant Alberto Gallo

In celebration of Frieze Art Fair 2014art:i:curate teams with Paul Smith to host an innovative exhibition of work by emerging London-based artists that combines Mayfair’s deep-rooted art heritage with the digital world’s trail-blazing creative community. 

 

Open to all, by registering at articurate.net, everyone has the opportunity to express their creativity in front of an audience of both art fans and the industry’s elite. 

 

Italian born, London based economist Alberto Gallo talks Jimi Hendrix and how art (and research) can change the world.

 

City: London

Profession: Economist, Researcher

Secret profession or as a kid I wanted to be: Sailor or Astrounaut 

 

AIC: How would you describe your own personal aesthetic? 

AG: Beauty is a journey towards a greater understanding of the world, nature and one's self.

 

AIC: How would your friends describe your personality? 

AG: The positives usually are around creativity, honesty, integrity... but I'm also very moody. I guess the creative process comes with some downside...
 

 

AIC: What inspires you? 

AG: Mostly music. It all started with Jimi Hendrix. 

 

AIC: Who's your hero? 

AG: I have many, but one to remember is definitely Crazy Horse, a symbol of resistance against all odds.

 

AIC: Do you consider yourself a collector? If so, what do you collect? 

AG: Probably not yet, but maybe some time in the future.

 

AIC: What's your most precious possession? 

AG: Ideas and memories, something time can't take away. And books, the first ones I read as a child, from my parents.

 

AIC: What does the term 'curating' mean to you?

 AG: I would probably say it's a bit like linking the dots to create a journey.

 

AIC: Why did you get involved in this project? 

AG: I've always been a fan of Paul Smith and its creative yet unconventional designs. There's a fine line between fashion, creativity and art, and in some cases the three come together.

 

AIC: How do you usually take art in? 

AG: Generally through galleries, but art:i:curate's exhibitions have been a great way to find new artists.

 

AIC: Describe Paul Smith in three words. 

AGA creative rebel. 

 

AIC: Tell me something about yourself - anything.​​​ 

AG: Great art (and research) can change the world.
