NAG Art Gallery, Contemporary Exhibition, San Lorenzo Church, Florence

Contemporary Exhibition, San Lorenzo Church, Florence, 01.Jun - 29.Jul, 2018

L’Arte è capacità di procurare emozioni e la fruizione dell’Arte è un momento di crescita culturale, un’esperienza formativa, un arricchimento del bagaglio conoscitivo. Attualmente è in corso un passaggio dallo “story telling” allo “story sharing” come dicono gli anglosassoni, cioè dalla fruizione di un racconto attraverso l’arte, ad una condivisione e partecipazione dell’arte.

Noi siamo per l’arte che racconta, siamo ancora “legati” alla Colonna Traiana, grande invenzione dell’Imperatore Romano di raccontare le sue gesta militari ai posteri. Parliamo di artisti e di arte tradizionale, siamo infatti distanti dalle forme più svariate di arte concettuale degli anni Sessanta e ancora più lontani dalle molteplici espressioni dell’arte multimediale che, utilizzando la tecnologia digitale, coinvolge sì fasce di popolazione mondiale sempre più ampie, ma nel contempo le allontana dalla condivisione dello stesso spazio che determina il coinvolgimento tattile e visivo con l’opera d’arte.

La pittura racconto bidimensionale, la scultura narrazione che prende volume, l’architettura, in questo caso, guscio, contenitore che consente la fruizione e il godimento emozionale delle arti figurative classiche

RomArt, will be housed within the archaeological area of​the impressive Domiziano Stadium, in the splendid setting of Piazza Navona.

Spectrum Miami Art Show

It’s where contemporary meets extraordinary. Join us for a five-day fine art experience, featuring music, entertainment, and other special events.

The exhibition was focused on the concept of transformation, starting from the alchemical processes that aim to purify the nature elements: earth, air, water and fire. The alchemists, recognized as the ancestors of modern chemists, worked to discover the way the world is made and to modify its structure.

The Arts & Entertainment District has recently seen a renaissance of creative energy with the advent of Miami’s premier performance space (The Adrienne Arscht Center), and the opening of hip restaurants and speakeasy-inspired bars. There’s no doubt that its location just minutes from all of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods (including Wynwood, Design District, Downtown, and South Beach) make the Arts & Entertainment District Miami’s next big discovery. Still being defined by the burgeoning creative scene, the Arts & Entertainment District is poised for exceptional growth in the coming years.

Oppening of Gandy Gallery Bratislava

Gandy Gallery Bratislava, 28.Sep - 01.Oct, 2017

Cobalt 60 - At the beginning of the 80's, a specialized branch of "Securitatea" together with some scientists developed a crazy experiment by injecting the trees, in a forest outside of Bucharest, with Cobalt 60, a chemical element used in nuclear power plants. The result of this experiment was that the trees grew up in a monstrous way.

The secondary "result" was that some children which played in that unmarked area have been irradiated and ultimately they died... Ironically in 2007 Romania wants to become the main producer of Cobalt 60 in the European Community.
