BABS Art Gallery is pleased to present the second event dedicated to GianCarlo Montebello, editor and master in the field of jewelry. In the new exhibition "GIANCARLO MONTEBELLO BODY ORNAMENTS - Una mappa per il corpo", curated by Paola Stroppiana, we explore his role as author of precious ornaments: an activity to which Montebello gave the name B.O., initials of Body Ornaments. From the 1980s until his passing, Montebello closely collaborated with goldsmiths he selected and trained, giving life to numerous collections and making significant contributions to the theoretical debate on jewelry.
This second exhibition analyzies the journey of B.O. and Montebello's creative vision through some of his most emblematic projects, following the thread of a precise narrative where the concepts of ornament and body take center stage.
