SBAGLIATO is an art project founded in 2011 by three Roman architects and designers, which stems from the desire to generate interferences in the urban fabric, creating “gaps” within the rigid order of architectures.
This need is expressed and carried out through the use of posters, perfect means of communication thanks to their ephemeral nature and mimetic qualities, which are also distinctive features of the group’s vision.
SBAGLIATO’s visionary installations are the result of a synergy between architecture, graphics, photography and collage, through which architectural elements can be “sampled”, processed and re-presented in an urban context, in an heterogeneous but not random manner.
In recent years SBAGLIATO have participated to numerous public art manifestations including Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, L’ALT!rove Festival in Catanzaro, Cheap Festival in Bologna, the Memorie Urbane Street Art Festival in Gaeta and many other events around the world.
In 2012 SBAGLIATO presented their first solo exhibition at 999Contemporary in Rome and the following year they were selected for the Collicola On The Wall project at Palazzo Collicola, the Visual Arts Museum of Spoleto, where they created a permanent installation. In 2015 they exhibited at the historical Galleria Toselli in Milan and participated to the traveling group show Eterotopia, presented at Palazzo Fazzari, in Catanzaro and the Ex Dogana in Rome, where in 2016 they took part to the exhibition Il Paradiso Inclinato, next to major artists such as Alighiero Boetti and Sol LeWitt.
