Galerie Besson, Retrospective of a lifelong passion / Officine Saffi, Milan, Italy
March 22 - May 21, 2012

After the closure of the historic London gallery, Officine Saffi presents an exclusive anthology of the collection in a group show from March 22 to May 21, 2012. This exhibition is a tribute by Officine Saffi to Anita Besson, her inspiration and work, in the form of a retrospective exhibition of her collection.

The exhibition provides an opportunity to see art ceramic works by some important and influential international artists: Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Claudi Casanovas and Jennifer Lee, alongside pieces by three Italian artists, Lucio Fontana, Nanni Valentini and Carlo Zauli.

Galerie Besson was founded in London in 1988, and it rapidly became an international point of reference for the greatest ceramic artists, hosting over 150 exhibitions featuring artists from all over the world.

Officine Saffi is an exhibition space in central Milan, very close to Santa Maria delle Grazie and Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. The gallery is dedicated to all aspects of ceramics. As well as the exhibition space, there is a workshop complete with kilns, wheels and all other equipment needed for ceramics, including high-temperature processes. The ceramics magazine La ceramica in Italia e nel mondo, the only publication of this type in Italy, also has its editorial office at the location.

Anita Besson will be present at Officine Saffi for the opening, which will be held on Thursday, 22 March 2012 at 6.00 pm (Entrance by invitation only).

Gallery Hours: Monday to Friday 10 am – 7 pm. Saturday by appointment.
