Best Of | Art | culture | Exhibitions
Highlight February event: Didattica Underground Metropolitana_Bologna (DUM.BO), an international appointment born with Art Fair 2018 and effective until the 25th of February
There’s a bit of New York in Bologna: an exhibition which evokes the bohémienne atmosphere of DUMBO, the artistic quartier in Brooklyn, famous for its vivid experimental activity.
New York is a city with a deep influence into the contemporary art world as into the creativity career of the five protagonist artists of the exhibition: Gian Luca Beccari, Angelo Bellobono, Giorgio Bevignani, Davide Bramante and Massimo Giacon.
Mentioning Bellobono, “New York still represents one of the most successful experiment in contemporary anthropology; the crossroads where life, dreams, wins, vulnerabilities and failures meet and stratify”.
Contemporary Concept institution found in Art Fair 2018 the perfect occasion to introduce this special project of international breathe and with a rooted believe in a value exchange with new generations.
Its core mission remains to ease the interaction between different art genres and people, without boundaries.
The event will take place until the 25th of February at the Centre for Didactic Studies of Arts, an ancient palace from XVI century placed into the Jesuit district and first venue of the State Institute of Art of Bologna.
Maria Chiara Wang, organiser of the exhibition, outline five thematic guidelines, proposed by the five artists and designed for the students of the Artistic High School Arcangeli of Bologna.
Beccari, Bellobono, Bevignani, Bramante and Giacon are the appropriate spokespersons to grow an contemporary art project into a disciplinary context: in addition to their international relevance, they show a true sensibility about formation and communication with young talents.
Angelo Bellobono expresses a vital perception of paint art as social, relational, participatory. Key-concepts of his vision are the listening and observing, the core thematics are the identity and the belonging to a territory.
Into its artworks, the nature becomes a visual representation of boundaries, connections, movements and memories.
Davide Bramante plays a different role into the photography background: he applies a special technique where multiple expositions of 4 - 9 images overlap. This method creates a surprise effect that becomes visible only at the end of the work develop.
Massimo Giacon communicates his reflections about contemporary society through toys-sculptures. The message is a new revisitation of the modern man and modern way of life: the sculptures that should remind of childhood, fun and happiness, now represent vices, weaknesses and uneasiness of the modern man.
Gian Luca Beccari explores the video art, from its first manual techniques and shootings to the digital era, where technologies become a tool of expression and analysis.
Its goal is the aesthetics of the mass communication: his deepen studies both on a technical level and content level - in particular on applied mystical philosophy - converge into its works.
Giorgio Bevignani loves experimenting with different materials, patterns and shapes.
His artwork thematics range from literature to mythology, science and philosophy; to communicate all these abstract topics, he focuses on the sense research: lights, colours, tactile experiences, crystallisation of time and space.
