Goodguys are a crew, a gang, a group, an invasive and heavy presence. Unwanted guests, who require a lot of attention. (Gran Riserva) stands for alcohol or cigars, the best that can be offered in town; A rare product, unique, a gift to offer for special occasions; selected rarities like precious stones. Goodguys are the difference between the ordinary and special, the focus point in the space. Their nature leads them to be necessary  so as  circumstance  become unique and exclusive.

Furniture and furnishings are removed, TV and paintings are replaced, Daniele Milvio’s living room is only for the Goodguys. The walls are still marked by signs of the frames which occupied the wall before Goodguys ( Gran Riserva ) works would take their place.  Like a wedding tuxedo, Goodguys (Gran Riserva) is the vintage cognac matched with the rare cigar, smoked  with important guests in your living room, while admiring your collection of art made of canvas,  gleaming copper plates,  metal sculptures, decorated  eggs,  portraits,  prints and a rare coffee service .

Since November 2013, Gasconade put a pied-a-terre  in Rome, with ‘Guest’ project – a series of exhibitions hosted in a private home  in Via  Ricciotti, 9. Daniele Milvio (b. 1988) Italian artist, is the owner of the space; after his studying at Brera Academy in Milan, he is now living and working in Rome. ‘Guest’ proposes  and submits  a parallel exhibition program to the Milanese space of Gasconade. A space that  cause different allestitive challenges with its atypical exhibition environment,  lived throughout the exhibition period.

‘Guest’ , as the name suggests, is a project intimately linked to the idea of hospitality, both for the artists and the audience, which find themselves to enjoy the show in a domestic  background. Goodguys ( Gran Riserva ) ( April  5 to May  10 , 2014)  is the second ‘Guest ‘ exhibition.  Gasconade presents   the works of 7 artists from Milan : Pietro Agostoni (b.1990), Gianluca Belloni (b.1991), Alessandro Carano (b.1984), Isabella Costabile (b.1991), Matteo Pomati (b.1989), Giangiacomo Rossetti (b.1989), Giulio Scalisi (b.1992).
