ADC Contemporary & Building Bridges International Art Exchange presents “People”, sponsored by the
Consulate General of Argentina in Los Angeles, the Argentine American Cultural Foundation (AACF)
and the Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles. The exhibition “People”, through paintings and sound
installation, will allude to the historic past and trigger the reflexion about the present. It will represent and
enhance the theme with the concept of multitude, solitude and immigration that each artist express in
through their body of work.

painting at the Fortabat in the National Museum in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1999. From 2007 until now,

“In the light with his half tones, in the colours, in the relation that are set up between the images, in the game of mirrors
(that the artist uses in some of the naked) we find that affectionate way that the painting offers. Therefore the realism has
its mysteries like the best ones could show.”Fermin Fevre
Francesca Bifulco: Born in 1986 in Southern Italy. She attended the Academy of Fine Arts and
Academy of Costume and Desgin in Rome where she studied special effects, costume and design.
In this exhibition, emerging artist Francesca Bifulco will present her new body of work THE CROWD. This
body of work is a sort of an obsession, a passion, and an attraction towards such intrinsic human blocks.
A lot of different lives put together in stand-by as a single mass. The crowd takes possession and control
of the painting space, until choking the space itself. It is a horror vacui. The crowd moves, acts and unites
as of under the control of an abstract leadership.
