The opening of the exhibition will take place on 18 February at 18.30 in the “Space for Contemporary Art” in Via Neghelli, 68 in Latina
Vernissage in style for the exhibition of the works participating in the Comel Award “Vanna Migliorin” contemporary art 2012.
Visitors can admire the works that thirteen Italian artists have created agreeing to deal with a particular material, aluminum. A recyclable material that combines very versatile features, we are used to seeing it in everyday objects, such as coffee maker or can, but has often attracted the imagination and creativity of the artists who have used it to create works of art such as the huge installation of Jean Pierre Morin in 1997 which is now located in Quebec City or “The Aluminiun Forest” created in 2001 in Utrecht in the Netherlands, not to mention the wonderful “Slice Chair” made by Mathias Bengtsson, now exhibited at the Art Museum in Milwaukee.
The Comel Prize, created with the aim of drawing attention to the expressive, aesthetic and communicative potential of aluminium, has selected and admitted to the exhibition the works of: Roberto Andreatini, Federica Bartoli, Ornella Boccuzzi, Emanuela Carone, Ezio Colosimo, Anna Crescenzi, Gabriele Di Stefano, Massimiliano Drisaldi, Massimiliano Frumenti, Emilia Isabella, Alessio Marchegiani, Renata Petti, Lorenzo Sole. The award, dedicated to the recently deceased metal entrepreneur Vanna Migliorin, in addition to promoting contemporary art and at the same time enhancing the important aesthetic value of aluminum, wants to support innovative projects combining the “do” company with social and cultural aspects, especially enhancing alternative and recyclable materials.
