Public and Confidential which equivocates the phrase “Private and Confidential” often used to classify secret documents, and Limitless are two catalogs edited by Wunderkammern, a Roman urban art gallery that has recently opened a new space in Milan, to summarize their work between 2013 and 2015, with some international artists like Dan Witz, Rero, Agostino Iacurci, Aakash Nihalani, Jef Aérosol, Sam3, L'Atlas, Sten Lex, Alexey Luka and 2501.
Between 2013 and 2014, the first ones have been invited to investigate the dynamics of a person’s individuality in both the public and private spheres, while the second ones worked around the concept of limit in its diverse forms and manifestations between 2014 and 2015.
Gallery's catalogs normally reproduce the artworks that have been shown during an exhibition. They give an overview on an entire series of artworks and allow collectors and fans to better understand the work of an artist. Private and Confidential, as much as Limitless, go beyond, as they reproduce critical essays by art historians, journalists and architects that have been always very attentive to urban art practices, next to important set of photos not only of the artworks shown, but also of the artists at work both in studio and public space.
