Emanuel Gargano: Scartime
September 7, 2022 - September 24, 2022
Urban Zen Foundation:
Stephan Weiss Studio,
705 Greenwich St,
New York, NY 10014

The Italian artist and designer’s debut solo exhibition in New York lands at the home of Donna Karan’s lifestyle brand Urban Zen Foundation, where 28 works encompassing dramatic lighting fixtures, marble vessels, and large-scale paintings will be on display. Nodding to the exhibition title “Scartime,” which is derived from the Italian word “scarto” (a residue of craftswork), Gargano removes his own ego from the design process and instead allows time to leave its mark. “I merely serve as the fuse that sets it off, giving the work a chance to imprint and scar itself,” he says. “My art is imperfect, for us a species also subjected to the whims of time;: imperfect art for imperfect beings.”
