The policy made to Art Matteo Renzi

Matteo Renzi writes in the news letter of November 14, 2017: The national football team for the first time in 60 years does not qualify for the World CupThe world's problems are others, for goodness sake. But sorry to see children and teenagers in tears because for all of us, we love to chase a ball since the days when they were playing in the streets and shouted "machine" when he passed a few cars, the world is always something magical. And I understand the tears of those kids. There are other political leaders who have taken the plunge like jackals on this story beginning with Salvini who gave immigration fault. Who knows football knows that the Salvini arguments are ridiculous: the foreigners are in Germany, France, England, Spain, everywhere and yet most of us have in mind the ' image of France multiethnic world champion in 1998. But regardless of this I believe that yesterday evening in some respects unfortunately "historic" imposes to the whole football movement reflection, prim is the President Tavecchio and CT Ventura. Football in Italy is an emotion fantastic but never before at this time needs to be fully refunded, beginning with how we are in the stands in the youth games we parents up to the television rights and the promotion of Italian football abroad. Do not participate in the World of Russia is a huge slap. Let us ensure that all aid to fundamentally change, immediately. We share the volunteers of the youth sector and those who believe in the magic of this sport. Meanwhile, however, a thought to those who put us face even today as it always has in the last twenty years and that yesterday ended with the national team: Gigi Buffon. Even in defeat you see someone who is a real man. Thanks Captain, hello Gigi.

The PD meanwhile closed a national leadership without fighting within itself and this is a surprise even to many of us. The summary is that we want to talk about the real problems of the Italians. In recent years we have done a lot, the real challenge now is the future, no renunciations and without vetoes. On this we are focused on this, and we will call to engage the best energies of the country such as Paolo Siani on the front row in Naples in the fight against educational and child poverty (here an interview in today's republic). And on this we are ready to make broad alliance without putting vetoes, not personalities. But we talk about Italy, please. We put at the center of people's needs, not political tactics. We will.

Even for this again the train. Last week I touched Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto, Emilia Romagna. Today we leave yet to Vicenza, then Trentino Alto Adige and Lombardy. Here are some videos. And the good policy will focus its eighth annual Leopolda (L8). The title will be MEETING. Why we tell many of the meetings this year, because we will be happy to find ourselves, because we'll ask everyone to be a leader of the Leopolda. We wait as protagonists, not as spectators. L8, on Friday, November 24 to Sunday, November 26. In the place where many of you we met and will meet again.

Thought the evening. For years I have said that Italy would be shared on the condition of making the reforms and stop with the resignation. At the beginning of the legislature's GDP was less than 2, now nearly two more if we look at the data released this morning (dare pay). We believed in many, they gave the optimistic crowds. But time is a gentleman distracted that sooner or later re-establishes the truth. With the same force with which I said that we would be divided, I say now that the best is yet to come. That one million jobs is just the beginning. What Italy can drive the revival of Europe. Provided that we do serious things, without pursuing snake oil salesmen and welfarism prophets. This, dear friends, is the reason why you do not give up. They can attack, insult, offend: we think of the good of Italy. A smile and go on, go together

The demon of modernity. Visionary painters dawn short century.

Franz von Stuck, Sin, ca 1900,
oil on canvas - Zagreb, Museum of Arts and Crafts
The eruption of the modern world in the late nineteenth-century and her explode in the first three decades of the "short century" is the true subject of this amazing exhibition entrusted by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Padova and Rovigo to Giandomenico Romanelli , curator of the highly successful exhibition that Palazzo downy has dedicated this year to The Obsession Nordica . A particular modernity, populated by angels and demons, including restless and ineffable, between conscious and unconscious, between foreshadowing of death and destiny of light.

It is certainly a show that can give strong emotions that mixes in vitalisms wild and ambiguous ethereal-outs, nightmares and dreams. An exhibit unusual and perhaps unique, and not only for Italy. It 'a journey, meaningful, strong, full of emotions that accompanies the darkest depths of the unconscious and does ascend to the terse brightness of spirit .

Along with some essential icons symbolist universe, will be presented works that combine the charm of the symbol and the freedom visionary and utopian ideal, by making the visitor a stretched between findings of an exclusive art and mysterious and dramatic representation and raw, sometimes subdued, the madness of war.

But, resistors and falls, what is staged is the irruption of modernity restless and stormy, a prefiguration of death no less than unbridled celebratrice a vitalism completely turned towards new achievements and new myths.
Even the languages ​​of art are renewed tumultuously, breaking the rigid schemes of each classical, traditional connections and space-time relations, introduce the movement, the extreme sounds, the contamination between genres.

This is not a narrative systematic: around incomparable figures of the new world, to angels to a destiny of light and darkness and cold sulfur surrounding the cursed and the outcast, the new forms of art open wide horizons unsuspected and explode above the rubble of the past and despite the overwhelming power of the modern ambiguous. 

To recount, interpret and live in their works these emotions are great European artists: James Ensor, Franz Von Stuck, Leo Putz, Odilon Redon, Arnold Bocklin, Paul Klee, Carlos Schwabe, JAG Acke, M. Kostantinas Ciurlionis, Max Klinger, Leon Bakst, Alfred Kubin, Felicien Rops, Gustav Moreau, Hans Unger, Lovis Corint, K. Wilhelm Diefenbach and Italians: Mario De Maria, Guido Cadorin, Cagnaccio of St. Peter, Bortolo Sacchi, Alberto Martini , among others. 
In a symphony that inevitably counterpoint to the music of Wagner and highly original images of New York'sGennaro Favai . 
Sascha Schneider, Triumph der Finsternis (Triumph of darkness), 1896, oil on canvas - private collection

For those who love great art, comparison with other arts and especially the strong emotions.

The demon of modernity. Visionary painters dawn short century "is an exhibition sponsored and organized by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Padova and Rovigo with the town of Rovigo, and the Academy of Concordi, curated by Giandomenico Romanelli.

Hamish Fulton and Michael Höpfner in a Song of the road to the Museum MAN in Nuoro

"Song of the road" is the title of the double staff of Hamish Fulton and Michael Höpfner , scheduled to MAN Museum of Nuoro from next February 6th. 

The result of an imaginary dialogue resulted from a shared conception of the way as the engine of artistic experiences, the exhibition, curated by Lorenzo Giusti , presents a series of new works - photographs, wall drawings, drawings and installations - born from the common experience of travel the mountains of central Sardinia. Hamish Fulton (London, 1946) is one of the most representative figures of English art of recent decades. Along with Richard Long is considered the founding father of an international movement of "artists walkers ", of which the Austrian Michael Höpfner (Krems, 1972) is today one of the most significant exponents. 

The exhibition at the Man of Nuoro puts for the first time to compare the work of the two artists, identifying the trip in the mountains of Supramonte and Gennargentu common ground for comparison. An experience of total immersion in the harsh nature of Barbagia eastern move that saw the two artists for two weeks in the same environment, without ever meeting. United by the same passion for the mountains and a common vision of artistic practice as an expression of personal experiences (even when done in a group), Fulton and Hoepfner open, through the use of different languages ​​- more conceptual than the first, with lyrics or graphics path, more visual than the second, with photographs and installations - a significant reflection on the role of art, the concepts of experience and creation, and the relationship between man and environment.

Hamish Fulton began his career in the late sixties, calling himself "Walking Artist", a way to distinguish their work from the practices of the Land Art who were initially united. His art is experiential, that feeds on long walking in natural contexts, especially in the mountains, from Europe to South America, from Tibet to Japan. Since the nineties declined part of their work in a participatory dimension, aimed at sharing the experience of the journey, which was applied and development in urban settings. LE His works are held in the collections of major museums around the world, from the MOMA in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Tate Modern in London.

Michael Höpfner lives in Vienna and Berlin. His work focuses on the experience of the journey on foot through the desert areas or sparsely populated from Ukraine to China, Kyrgyzstan to South Korea. A journey that began as an exploration of physical and mental geographical spaces and that continued as a reflection on concepts of reality and place. Among the most recent exhibitions include those at Kunstforum Bank in Vienna, the Kunsthalle St. Gallen, the Kunstverein in Salzburg, AR / ge Kunst in Bolzano and galleries Olaf Stüber in Berlin and Hubert Winter Vienna.

Will complete the project a catalog, published by NERO, with texts by Lorenzo Giusti, Giovanni Carmine and Muriel Enjalran. 

The exhibition will be accompanied by a program of laboratory activities by the educational section of the museum and experience of walking to the public, in collaboration with artists and environmental guides of the territory.

Carlo Dog and his honest vision of the near future, the Skapigliatura Trino.

Carlo Dog and his work
Since December 23, 2014 al March 21, 2015 at the Gallery " La Skapigliatura "- Trino (VC), Via Papa Giovanni XXIII - will host the exhibition by Carlo DogAn honest vision of the near future "by Alessandro Beluardo

"Prior to observe the work of Charles Cane, try closing your eyes and imagine for a few seconds to make a dark journey into the future and find yourself in a new world, full of feeling lost. Now open your eyes: you are in front of large metropolis devoid of life of which only impressive buildings now uninhabited, as monuments to the memory of a long lost civilization.

Soaring skyscrapers, towering palaces, mighty dusty beings that dominate the scene in a context in which time expands to the point that seems to stop, a time in which man is no longer expected. 
We continue to fix helpless a distressing scene and assaulted by the fear of being catapulted into the desolate world, we seek in vain for a sign of life. In a moment without end, we expect from the corner of a street or a window appears a silhouette of a man.

In the works of Charles is a sense of desolation in the face of what could be the future, but the artist does not want to completely take away the hope of a different truth: are we really sure that within these majestic cathedrals contemporary there is someone watching us just as we are looking for?

To get an idea of ​​the Cultural Center of Zerouno Barletta.

An expression of Cesare Pavese from the book ' The Moon and the Bonfires 'inspires another exhibition of contemporary art; always art is considered a form of expression grandiose and compelling point of reference for the artist pinning it in his own feelings and their points of view with extreme humility. The works of art are expressions in which to understand and say 'how is this world' away from curricula that create, vivid in intrigues of those who create them. 

Every work of art is the beginning of a long dialogue that must always establish, to lose yourself to remember, look, get excited, as for the many works of exposure compelling and engaging, intriguing and sometimes mysterious. 

Four protagonists who were confronted with majestic grandeur fit exhilarating between large canvases and small attractive formats. Laura Ajutyte is instinct that juggles on large media thrilling brio color: enthusiasm, determination, freedom and instinct dominate the art scene with determination grandiose between intense tones always well cadenced in gestural abstract addressed always to excite. 

Stefania Di Filippo lets talk about the matter from the delicate tones to inspire reflection. Matter is real perception that comes from a family history linked to the tissues and behold, history, memories and present alternate between large and small sizes in sublime visions refined tones and delicate. Drawn from the material leaves the audience becomes ill nell'iter dashed so excited to be found and since the same man is made ​​of matter. 

Laura Serafini gives an idea in imposing majesty using figuration unusual, alternative and brilliant: recovering ancient maps initially found by chance in a former antiques fair enters human bodies sign internalization dotted with incomparable grace and care. Great comparison between the old fund and contemporaneity of his art in a striking combination and for this sensational. 

Alberto Sordi leaves indelible marks with a figuration unusual tones seemingly gloomy but of unique elegance: speaking of modern times inspired from everyday life and also by the ancient traditions makes alternative treatments seemingly chaotic and poorly organized and so original. Spontaneity takes over the disorientation of which the entire composition enjoys identifying authentic great creations. 

[...] And when he had said something ended: 'If I'm wrong, correct me'. So it was that I began to understand that not only speaks to speak, to say 'I did this' 'I did that' 'I have eaten and drunk', but we speak to get an idea, to understand how this world goes.

"Opening a gallery at such a complex operation is definitely risky, I'm aware of - warns Nunzia Perrone , creator and owner of Gallery A100 - especially in an area such as Puglia, traditionally difficult to regard the market of ' art. But the passion for contemporary art, respect for the search of artists and cultural goals of our journey, we are told that such a commitment is necessary. "
Exhibitions, publications, workshops, seminars, site-specific projects in historical and urban contexts: projects A100 Gallery are indeed different and concern, with a double look, the Italian and foreign territory, including of course some significant voices - young or now consolidated - of Puglia, the region in which the project was born.

At the center of the exhibition - curated byAlessandra Redaelli - are the irresistible force of attraction of the figure and the power of the gaze.And 'the man, in fact, central to the work of the three protagonists. Told using very different languages ​​and yet parallel expressive power.

There are powerful and seductive bodies of MATTEO PUGLIESE (Milan, 1969), an artist who already runs regularly at auction - Christie's, Sotheby's, Pandolfini - with awards that have come to double the initial estimate. They are warriors from the suggestions classic, prisoners of a brute matter, educated at the height of the struggle, in the moment immediately preceding the release; explosions of force contracted sculpted in bronze. 

There are the faces of HARDING MEYER (Porto Alegre, Brazil, 1964), huge, massive, grandiose; looks clear and hypnotic going to dissolve in a touch soft, almost ethereal, becoming icons of timeless beauty. 

And then there are the portraits of ANDREA Mariconti (Lodi, 1978), in the balance between the passion for minute detail, almost photographic, and the need to free the matter, leaving it to dissolve, it explodes, which is open to new explorations and the third dimension.

On the thread of the dreams of the Library Loredana Albanian Monbook.

Poster of  "On the edge of dreams"
From November 29 to December 18, 2014 at the Library Monbook exposes Loredana Albanian in an exhibition entitled "On the edge of dreams", edited by Luigi Mastromauro

"The new works of Loredana Albanian are a worthy tribute to the lightness ... paper airplanes, sheets, butterflies, objects magically suspended in the air, an inspired idea that gives a sense of calmness, of loveliness ... wires that support children in vacuum with a natural delicacy reassuring.
In the works inhabit suggestive actions that are related to the game, in a poetic thought in a story, these spaces contain figures that seem graffiti on walls made of a material almost impalpable.

World apparent contraction to Saman Gallery of Rome.

What I was asked to friends Artists who participated in this exhibition is to focus attention on what they alone (in addition to Nature) can create! Magical distortion of reality, unreal play of light and shadows, impossible deformations of objects, skillful and dramatic forms of expression.

Did you happen to pass by way Nicolò Piccolomini? It is located on a hill in Rome near the Vatican, and is basically the same height of the dome of St. Peter. Straight, flat, tree-lined, but the custodian of an impressive optical effect. If the turn into a revenue and proceed to the dome, which is highly visible on the bottom, you get the impression that this, as we come close, lessen considerably. If we proceed in the opposite direction, however, while you are away, you see larger photo. If the same thing you do in the car (possibly while driving someone else!) The effect is incredibly fast, real-time
However, it is evident that the size of the dome do not change, but only its relationship with the surrounding objects.

All this is certainly contrary to all experience that each of us has had in the past during the observation of objects and I assure you view it creates disorientation and disequilibrium. A scientist friend of mine who knows a lot of things optical, told me that the phenomenon is known and has a name: the contraction of the apparent world.

The works produced and presented were all up to expectations, beautiful, impressive. Truly a beautiful and original show to see.

Expose Artists: Anna Maria Ballarati, Iginia Bianchi, Hercules Bolognesi, Patrick de Magistris, Giovanna Cruel, Phoebe, Robert Kuzbinski, Angela Praised, Anna Marino, Havadi Nagy, Roberto Nizzoli, Ilaria Pergolesi, Ugo Pergoli, Fabrizia Sgarra, Giuseppe Hope .

COUP DE FOUDRE # 1 in Contact Zone - Contemporary Art Gallery in Lugano

Contact Zone - Contemporary Art Gallery presents: " COUP DE FOUDRE # 1 ", group show of Francesco Ardini, Antonio Bardino, Kevin Francis Gray, Noemi Montanaro, Elena Monzo, Francesco Padovani, Flavio Petricca Tiberius , in Lugano, edited by Guido Cabib . Opening 16 Otto-ber 2014 hours 18:00 to 21:00.

"The artists, for the first time in Switzerland, presenting a series of works, paintings, sculptures, photographs and installations, new and made specifically for the space Contact Zone.
For a long time, the culture and mentality western art has been associated with beauty and aesthetic sense. Philosophers and intellectuals debated for centuries wondering if beauty lies in the work of art or in the eyes of the observer, or maybe both. This discussion presents the drawback of moving from a wrong assumption: the assumption, that is, whether the work is split up those who are stable entities.

We decided to introduce the public to "lougan" with a group of Italian artists who atraverso their innovative language comparing, in fact, with a large and acclaimed Irish artist: Kevin Gray Fancis . The artist, returns the aura sculpture but does so with contemporary accents. His figures are based on real pedestals, those from more traditional forms but they do it with tennis shoes or stilettos perfectly modeled. Even in the materials the charm of opposites: the whiteness of the old black marble, the gleam of bronze and light weight of the resin blend opulence of gold .The sculpture, traditional medium par excellence, see the work of the entire Gray complexity 'and the decadence of our time, through the choice of contemporary subjects and "borderline";

By now, be borderline, it is a CONDITION FROM typical of youth, who fell all the references of the past, as in every epoch-making revolution that respect, they are in a limbo that is neither past nor future. 
Women Elena Monzo have no country, are eternal figures in motion, fillers, even overflowing, cultural references and his "Painting" is transformed into a global media and without barriers. The landscapes are side views in the paintings of Antonio Bardino , pushing our attention to meditative silences. Montanro Naomi and Flavio  Tiberius  Petricca , the first with the " Taxidermy "and the second through new industrial materials, creating new monsters and new beauties, new habitat and imaginative beings, forcing the observer to collect your thoughts and direct them towards the intimacy and truth of our essence of being alive. Flavio for the creation of new forms of artistic careers has become the means to isolate themselves completely from the world. Through research in the area of white industrial materials, such as Dacron, polyethylenes, nylon, and polyurethane resins, shows us his loneliness is really a test case, a period of exclusive personal training, self-knowledge themselves to analysis within. Flavio recreates his lonely world by inventing unusual shapes but of royal provenance, which in fact makes it no longer alone. The series of sculptures of animals tassidermiche Noemi Montanaro imaginative and seductive, playing as a counter to the image of the contemporary woman, they become embellishing.

Culture is not only the product of the brain, is also a set of activities that shape the mind. The brain of each of us is modified by cultural activities such as reading, studying, listening to music, learn a language, play and feel like a work of art. We exist not to become telepathic, super heroes with divine powers, but in order to progress and improve. The artist looks, looks, sees, but what eventually puts into it's own internal vision of what is around him and feels. The artist looks at the same time outside and inside. " the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way into the clearing , "wrote Marcel Duchamp . Through art we also gain emotional knowledge. It's art, often, that suffering becomes beautiful! We find this suffering within four shots of Francesco Padovani portraying a woman occluded and reclusive Western idea, that despite all the well wishes, obedient, silent, prostrate and motionless.

The brain is an amazing machine to generate knowledge through concepts, but there is a price to pay for a car so sophisticated: the knowledge that the brain is able to acquire are not always able to meet its ambitions or what seeks to express, so it compensates for this lack through artistic creativity. The art provides us with a wealth of elements that we - the viewer - can interpret. The contemporary ceramics byFrancesco Ardini bringing down all the fences that art history has erected to relegate the "Applied Arts" in a secondary space than that occupied by older sisters (painting, sculpture, drawing and even the technological image) ; are photography contemporary man who lives between decomposition and reconstruction, as it cruises in search of the future that perceives but not yet seen.

Press Release - The Pavilion of Contemporary Art in Milan opens the exhibition season of 2014 coming back to talk about the body, with a large solo exhibition and a new performance by Regina José Galindo , Golden Lion at the 51st Venice Biennale as the best young artist.

On the occasion of (but by invitation only), this evening, the artist will realize Guatemalan Exalatión (Estoy alive), an original performance designed for the CAP and Milan. intense action and poetic, a gesture of suspension and symbolic exchange between artist and audience, a metaphor for the relationship, always present in the work of Galindo, art, life and death .
Sponsored by the City of Milan Culture at MiArt, 2014, produced by CAP and Civita and edited by Diego Sileo and Eugenio Viola , Estoy Viv is in the first - and most comprehensive - anthology of never built. The last decade of the last century has seen a renewed focus on the poetics related to the body and action, only in apparent continuity with the experiences related to these phenomena in their step now historical. The performance is now returning to "insult" with new force the territories of art, through a reckless contamination of different languages, which allowed new forms of expression rooted in the present and unhampered by tradition and conventions. Work of Regina José Galindo, from the beginning, is related to these forms of active resistance, characterized by a new centrality of the body.

"The art, the real one, has little to do with the glamor, the fashion, the needs of the market. Not fancy, not pleased and not pleased. The art, the real one, absorbing the moods and the truth of the reality that surrounds and returns them sorted by the sensitivity of the interpreter, and sometimes the effect is to return a slap, or a scream - said the ' Department of Culture Filippo Del Corno - Milan is proud to host the first retrospective in Italy Regina José Galindo, sensitive and courageous woman and an artist who has already won, thanks to its ability to deal with universal themes as a universal language, and public criticism from many different countries around the world. A program that confirms the CAP as natural home, and prestigious for all of the most significant experiences of international contemporary art. "
Regina José Galindo (Guatemala City, 1974) is one of the most representative artists of the magmatic Latin American continent. His research embodies the dimension of suffering suppressed and removed, using your own body in a political controversy and, like a tool to reactivate the repressed trauma and do not forget the ruins of history.

Starting from the microcosm of his country, Guatemala, crossed by a state of perpetual instability and violence, the artist returns works uncomfortable, often brutal, in which his tiny body and a fragile is exposed to a series of public actions that use the metaphorical space of art to denounce the ethical implications related to social injustices and cultural discrimination of race and gender, and more generally all the abuses arising from the relations of power that plague contemporary society.
Galindo explores his own body, transforming it into an instrument of symbolic re-enactment of events undergone by the collective body, the so-called "social body". His actions, in a logic of total involvement, on the one hand reaffirm the commitment of the artist to materialize through violence and pain the criticality of this, on the other explicit a deep sense of powerlessness, calling into question simultaneously ancipiti the roles of participant and spectator.

Regina José Galindo explores the fear, anxiety and its consequences, in the first person by addressing the physical and psychological risk, going up to the limits of the imagination. His actions radical and dramatic return situations always unsettling and ethically uncomfortable, they become the instrument of denunciation aimed at redefining, once again, the blurred boundaries of art and life.

Estoy viva is divided into five sections, designed not as monads conceptual categories but permeable and interdependent: Politics, Women, Violence, Death and Organic. Five macro emergency issues, designed to present a panorama of artistic open-existential experience of Regina José Galindo and highlight the main areas of research, and worries the sake of continuity. A path built through short circuits and slips, from its origins to today, which combines some of its most representative actions and known as "las huellas borrar Quién puede" (2003), Himenoplastia (2004), Mientras, ellos siguen libres (2007) and caparazon (2010), more recent works and a number of unpublished works or never exhibited before in Italy, as Marabunta and joroba (2011), Descension (2013) or the touching La Verdad, (2013).
Her research, which focuses on issues related to violence, deprivation of rights and individual freedom, is so universal that it affects men and women all over the world meet and stories from every continent and reality. For this exhibition through a donation will support the work of Amnesty International, the independent non-governmental organization and self-financed since 1961 that defends human rights wherever they are violated.

Julia Laddago Can you see me? Laboratory of Urban Cultural Workshops Bitonto

Press Release - As part of the cultural 10x10, ten artists for ten months, reformulated in the second edition by Amalia Di Lanno , opens Friday, March 14, 2014 at 20:00 in the exhibition hall of the Urban Laboratory Workshops Cultural Bitonto (Ba) shows the Photographic Can you see me? for Julia Laddago .

A simple question. A request for confirmation. Or an attempt at self-assertion. Can you see me? A project of reflection, investigation, research Giulia Laddago proposes and develops in two exhibition routes and two different operating modes. Central theme is the act visually as 'instrument' exploratory factor with a view to understanding personal and social identity. Laddago examines and focuses on the sense of seeing and the practice of looking to the next, crucial in the perception of reality mediated by the eye of the beholder. Are brought to light two reflections, seeing tied to a vision of the surface, immediate and instinctive, and see in the sense, we can say contemporary, in terms of social-media influence.
Quoting the author, " Blinded by the visible, we citizens of the twenty-first century we move making our way, looking for someone to still be able to see us . " The question into project would be most relevant, we are continuously searching for a lost identity, maybe ever had, hence the importance of stress and linger in meditation starting from just what is and what is the value of the act of seeing in terms of personal recognition and interpretation of reality. Both paths where the project unfolds Can you see me? reflect issues related to identity and just to see how the discovery of oneself and of others in the act of vision, a part of a series of portraits made ​​in the optical bench, half a result of a choice than ever determinative of a direct approach between subject and photographer: the desire to meet and story. The idea of setting the act of seeing, understood as a visual merge and mutual recognition, meet again and find themselves in the eyes of those who are facing. In this sense, the photograph as an extension of view is revealed, according to our own, an excellent vehicle of human feeling.

On the other hand, a photo and audio installation, a kind of diary, in which Laddago record the faces and voices of five guys who express a profound sense of waiting with no expectations, expressions of loneliness and disappointment towards a reality that not 'see them' and which corresponds to the strong feeling to look over, wanting to go beyond the precarious contingency above them by forcing them to an emotional limbo, a seemingly quiet shelter from which it is difficult to get away for fear of facing the indifference of a world that can easily be able to see without looking.
Proposal for a patent:
The project Can you see me? continues and starts in medias res from the public vernissage. Visitors may wish to participate in the LIVE SHOOTING that will create a new series of portraits on the theme of sight and identity.

The eternal return to BONIONI Art Gallery of Reggio Emilia

The Art Gallery BONIONI of Reggio Emilia has, from March 1 to April 13, 2014, " The Eternal Return ", group exhibition curated by Nicholas B onechi with works by Mirko Baricchi, Rudy Cremonini, Marco Ferri, Federico Gori, Luca Moscariello, Simon Pellegrini .
The exhibition, which takes its title from a fundamental concept of Nietzschean philosophy, born from dialogue between artists of the gallery ( Baricchi, Ferri, Moscariello, Pellegrini ) and new proposals ( Cremonini, Gori ), joined in a curatorial project.

Questioning the role of the artist in the contemporary world, the exhibition offers a parallel between the Superman of Nietzsche, which exceeds the hypocrisy of society through the affirmation of his own passions, and the artist, non-partisan figure, and host of evocative new possibilities.
As he writes Nicholas Bonechi , " were selected six authors, all of whom look to their own time, it relates to precise coordinates, it becomes an instrument to measure within a sociological and cultural process in continuous turmoil " .
Rudy Cremonini (Bologna, 1981) presents three works in oil on canvas in which human silhouettes and butterflies, a metaphor of transformation and rebirth, are raised by magma density. Federico Gori (Meadow, 1977) focuses his attention on the natural beauty, the same time the subject of the work and technical resource, as his plates are obtained by natural oxidation. Simone Pellegrini (Ancona, 1972) exposes some compositions with anthropomorphic figures, mazes and subject to transformation, set out on the final support from a variety of matrices paper. Mirko Baricchi (La Spezia, 1970) offers a selection of works on canvas, the result of a harmonious balance between drawing and painting, where freedom child meets the rationality of adulthood. Luca Moscariello (San Giovanni in Persiceto, Bologna, 1980), a veteran of a solo exhibition at the gallery, presents recent works in which elements of everyday life are layered on the table, creating a general feeling of alienation. Marco Ferri (Tarquinia, Viterbo, 1968), and finally, compares with the essence of matter through three-dimensional structures: geometric scores, sometimes modular, dictated by the passage of time.
The group, which will be inaugurated on Saturday, March 1st, 2014 at 17:00, will be open until April 13, 2014, from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 13:00 and 16:00 to 8:00 p.m..

Femininity radical. Lee Lozano, Alina Szapocznicow, Evelyne Axell Pinault Collection

The Museum Gucci in Florence in 2014 focused programming of Contemporary Art Space on the rediscovery of three significant protagonists of the twentieth century: the American Lee Lozano , the Polish Alina Szapocznicow and the Belgian Evelyne Axell . The collective " Femininity radical ", curated by Martin Bethenod - Director of the institutions Venetian Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana - presents a selection of nine works from the Pinault Collection .
The paintings and sculptures in the exhibition are a significant evidence of how in the sixties / early seventies, the female body, and the body of the artists in particular, has been a powerful tool for critique and subversion.
's body is understood here in a wide range : the real body, the protagonist of the works of Evelyne Axell, the body conceptual projects dear to Lee Lozano who confuse the boundary between art and life, and the fragmented body, characteristic of the sculptures on the border between art and decorative art by Alina Szapocznicow.
The body is being investigated as an object transposed into abstraction and compared to the banality of the male universe (evident in the works of Lee Lozano) and as a subject critical of the History of Art, according to the artistic thought of Evelyne Axell. But the body is also a symbol of desire, adorned with the symbols of seduction - for Axell and Szapocznicow - and its opposite: the emblem of suffering, threatened by disease and death as in the poignant representations of Szapocznicow and Lozano.
For the first time in Europe, a unique venue bringing together major works of these three artists. The course explains the singularity and radical positions conceptual Lozano, Axell and Szapocznicow, whose unconventional choices were decisive for an unjust and premature exclusion from the art world, they always refused the rules.
Their recent discovery, thanks to major solo and group exhibitions - including "Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968", presented successfully in Philadelphia and at the Brooklyn Museum in New York in 2010/2011 - shows the proper attention on extraordinary freedom of thought, power and relevance of three artists of absolute value.

The Languages ​​of the body to 77Artgallery

A group photograph of six young talents bound together by common artistic investigation: the image of the body and its gestures as every possible expression for it. The analysis focuses on the figure in motion: the face is often hidden, leaving the uncovered parts of its function. Deputies to give a sense of this expression are the individual parts of the figure or the changing context of the dye in its unreal. The result is a tribute to the human body immortalized in all its complexity .
Kalia Genoa : The protagonist of his shots is a female figure that seems to hover in delicate movements within a metaphysical atmosphere, soft, almost imperceptible. The lightness of the clothes and the calmness of the gestures mimic the vision of a dream and an escape from the reality of reality.

Chiara Mazzocchi : It comes with the project carried out in Berlin entitled "Human Alienation." Chiara works exclusively sull'autoscatto and Self Recording video and corporeality. It portrays in different positions and situations, often covering their faces with stockings to emphasize the sense of alienation from the world given by the social mechanism imposed. The same clothing of shooting is, in some cases, physically placed on the frame, making the work a unique piece.

Ramona Zordini : It connects the two environments or worlds of different substance: air and water. His research is on the change of a spiritual condition that the body reveals. His pictures portray penetrations or immersed in liquid, they lose their independence or their approaching Apollonian harmony to our world.

Sevill Seven : Sevil Amini is an artist born and raised in Tehran Iran. The work proposed for the collective consist of naked self-portraits printed on several sheets of acetate, which is superimposed with slight distance and placed in a frame. This creates layers of color, volume and evanescent light games that are designed to enhance the physicality and spirituality at the same time the subject.

Andrea Perego : His series of works is based on the technique of collage digital photo above that as the subject of faces, apply small pictures of urban landscapes by creating an 'orderly geometric composition that aims to merge the expressiveness of the human portraits with the coldness and rigor of the spots.

Marco Casolino : If for other artists, the body is decomposed or concealed, for Casolino is an object of Pirandello's play: how the psyche is broken up into different and opposing identities, so the photographer portrait work on the body, which is his. Here, too, the project is autobiographical; language is irreverent but seriously is his vision of the world, and in a surreal explore themes such as love, sex, religion, nature and the pain.

The Great Illusion of Love written

The exhibition The Grand Illusion / The great illusion alludes ironically to the content of the original 128 of 123 romance novels, the starting point for many international artists invited to reflect on the theme of love.

Each artist was given a book because it was interpreted in the total creative freedom. All books, found by the curator in April 2013, in Rome, next to a dumpster for waste, are romance novels in pocket format, written in English and published in the United States between 1984 and 2012.

The idea of romantic love which underlie these novels (in key uniquely heterosexual), passionate, outrageous, adrenaline illusion that feeds the imagination and dreams of avid readers, it's an escape that becomes comforting formula through the literary invention. The actual dynamics within loving relationships and the implications of the context, are only partially (and temporarily) due to the stereotypes offered by this kind of literature.

But we know in the end, you know our habits, our tastes, and even our innermost fears.
And then, as will be furnished his house? What images will surround you throughout your life? What colors will choose to remember the existence of his companions and to share the choices?
This exhibition wants to put you to the test! Will be accepted works that tell stories, but also doubts and fears you do not confess. You'll be offering you something to think about the spider to decorate his home.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a particular installation that will try to exploit the works in the context of the topic chosen and will speak.

The gallery Muratcentoventidue Artecontemporanea resumes its exhibition schedule with Intimate Cluster s, a solo exhibition of Barbara Allen key , dal22 February to 30 March 2014.

The perception was and is one of the key points of the research of many artists and has always had an important role to Barbara Allen key in which the work is implicit wonder about the nature of the image produced, regardless of the medium used.
Looking implies a succession of glances directed at different points in the visual scene, as if they were a series of snapshots of areas rich in particular areas surrounded by indistinct, and then get into our brain to reconstruct a second image, stable and sharp, which is the space and the objects it contains.
Similarly, the artist who is facing calls for his works to intervene, reconstructing possible groupings of lines and points taken from the graphic content of the images, to redesign a new possibility of space, depending on whether the object of the vision appears fragmented and can not be seen in its entirety or allowed to float between different views. Intimate Clusters is precisely to each request made to reconstruct, on the basis of the images, a synthesis between fragmentation and continuity.

To investigate the perceptive sphere is installing dual projection Lapse of view, inspired by the painting Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer of Caspar David Friedrich, in which a male figure behind compared with a mountain panorama characterized by rocks and fog.
The artist wanted to resume this painting by choosing to insert a female figure in a landscape that has the same natural elements of the pictorial: a young woman, motionless, looking
The observer sees the scene through the eyes of the girl but at the same time the figure of the same immersed in the landscape, because there are multiple points of view.
Lapse is an interval, a period of time: the panorama changes in the eyes of the character, is never "under control" because of the steam that continues to flow unabated, and changes the perception. At the same time, view indicates the significance of space: not only what is in front of the character, but also that in which it is immersed.

A (Veiled) Woman By The Sea, a work that is always playing with perception, is inspired by another painting by Caspar David Friedrich, Der Mönch am Meer, where a small figure of monaco is looking at the sea and the sky before him, his back to the spectator with whom he shares the perception of the three elements - earth, water and sky - in a rarefied scene.
In the video image of the beach and the sea was split into three panes, oriented so that the horizon line appears vertically. The point of view is changed and multiplied, offering views that combine and expand over time. In this context fits a female figure walking in the water and that, once you reach the beach, lying still and motionless to look at the landscape in front of him.

Rounding off the show a few photographs, always constructed by juxtaposing different views, some of the same scene and other scenes completely different: the observer is asked to
reconstruct a summary of what lies ahead, including fragmentation and continuity.

Frenhofer Contemporary Villa of Monza

The exhibition Frenhofer - from February 13 to April 12, 2014 Contemporary Villa of Monza - is a small survey on hybridization abstract-figurative art in recent years. Although the use of different materials, the seven young artists selected ( Daniel Carpi, Jacopo Casadei, Francesca Ferreri, Fiorella Fontana, Maria Lucrezia Schiavarelli, Patrizia Emma Scialpi and Marcello German ) are united by the need to represent life. The exhibition, which is curated by Andrea Lacarpia , will open today at 18:30

From the presentation of Andrea Lacarpia - "The abyss of interpretation that often intervenes between the avant-garde artist and the audience is told early on by Honoré de Balzac 's novel " The Unknown Masterpiece . "In it the author describes the ' lack of communication experienced by Frenhofer painter, working in secret for sixteen years to a naked woman he considers his masterpiece, but that will never be recognized as such. Wanting it to overcome the representation of appearances, the artist assembles a dense mass of strokes, so confused as to make unrecognizable the subject of the work. Not understanding the genesis, the first observer describes it as the masterpiece of the master: " Here I only see the colors confusedly piled, and bounded by a multitude of bizarre lines that form a wall painting . "The need to create life through signs and independent representation from allegory, becoming" body among bodies "and not mere copy of what exists, what is Frenhofer soul, but his" search for an absolute meaning has devoured all meaning to let survive only signs, forms no sens or. " The failure does not negate the revolutionary spirit of Frenhofer defined by Agamben " perfect type of the Terrorist " , citing the distinction Jean Paulhan makes the writers of " Rhetoricians, which dissolve all the meaning in the form and make this the only law of the literature " , and " terrorists, who refuse to obey this law and pursue the dream the opposite of a language that is no longer that sense of a thought in which the flame symbol is consumed entirely by putting the writer in front of the Absolute . "
An Absolute that artists today are once again be free to locate in the representation of man and of the world in the informal and organic as well as in geometry, overcoming the nihilistic aspect of the "rhetorician" and "Terrorist" and transforming the torments of Frenhofer in new synthesis of sign and meaning, in which the audience can come to recognize. The exhibition Frenhofer is a small survey on hybridization abstract - figurative art in recent years. Although the use of different materials, the seven young artists selected are united by the need to represent life, understood in organic material and transcendent, but not limited to imitate the skin but penetrates in its most structural. How to Frenhofer, the protagonist of the novel Balzac's "The Unknown Masterpiece" is the throbbing vitality of the body to be both the subject and the coveted end of artistic creation.
In the sculpture " Octagon meat " Marcello German affects an octagon marble, alluding to a flesh embedded in the language: while the alteration of the preceding narrative structures, the new story generates new bodies. In the corpus of works from the series " Golden Age ", the artist develops a parallel reality generated by an octagonal array, in which the female is the only element to be taken into account. Starting from the feeling of longing for faraway places and families, Patrizia Emma Scialpi reflects on the relationship of the body with the surrounding environment. In the works from the series " Love and Loss ", the artist uses the typical souvenir photo of the holidays, full-length portraits of people at sea, on which intervenes pictorially canceling the appearance of the subject. The identity of the figure is replaced by a body in continuity with the landscape, which is an integral part. Man's relationship with the places it lived interesting Daniel Carpi , for whom life is connected and turned from the environment with which it interacts. The head, privileged subject by the artist, is a vase transfigured in that it contains as to what is outside: the interior is contaminated with natural and social patterns leading to bizarre geological congregations that stand out against a neutral background. Forms between the organic and the geologic also appear in the works of Fiorella Fontana , in which the artist combines the flow of organic life, the spontaneous flow of thoughts. The microcosm to the macrocosm is related to an ongoing dialogue in which each particular sign is related to the whole in unity.

The perception of reality as flux emerges in the works of Francesca Ferreri . The artist, influenced by new discoveries in neuroscience, includes in its several sculptures of everyday objects, meeting vaguely organic forms that report to the perception of the vacuum as a system of relations. Through solid matter, the space becomes a tangible presence, bringing the mental associations revealed the activity of dreaming. The gap seen in its material substance is also present in the works of Jacopo Casadei . Through overlapping signs and vibrant colors, the artist outlines moving masses and indefinite that keep echoing through impalpable figurative allusions to the organic world that the artist suggests the viability of gestural sign. The movements of the body, expressed by Casadei in a soft and curvilinear pictorial, are transcribed with linear geometries from Maria Lucrezia Schiavarelli . In the project "tan Ta" the artist has collaborated with a dancer, with it reflecting on the perception of the movement as abstract forms in space. The dance movements were interpreted by the artist through projections of lines and shapes from the singular lightness, subjective interpretations subsequently used by the dancer as an outline for further dance, paving the way for a potentially infinite hall of mirrors.
