From Basquiat to Kher, from Hirst to Sugimoto: at Milan’s GAM from 17 June to 4 October, visitors can enjoy a true journey into contemporary painting. For this exhibition, “Don’t Shoot the Painter. Paintings from the UBS Art Collection”, we have developed, as Lighting Sponsor, a system to showcase over one hundred works from the UBS Art Collection, one of the biggest corporate collections in the world, open to the public thanks to the three-year partnership between GAM and UBS.
The concept aims to showcase the individual paintings and the special layout developed by curator Francesco Bonomi to reflect the historical legacy of the museum, highlighting the cross-references between the exhibition venue itself and the works.
For this project, Yori LED projectors were chosen, offering a high colour rendering index and the option to direct the light beam in order to showcase the composition and colours of the works.
The lighting design is intentionally minimalist, to maintain the visual harmony of the setting and the lighting bodies achieve a discreet presence thanks to their specially created neutral colour and their installation on recessed tracks to hide the structure of the light source from view.
