After the selection of the 13 finalists, the time has come to see the works selected during the 10th edition of the COMEL Award live in the exhibition The Aluminium eXperience.
The title of the exhibition, which is also the theme of the 2023 edition, wants to emphasize the path made by the international competition dedicated to aluminium in recent years and at the same time asks the artists to tell the story, imprinted in this metal, of their path and research carried out during their careers, whether long or short.
