On the occasion of the 11th Contemporary Art Day organised by AMACI (The Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums) which is held on Saturday 10 October 2015, arsprima presents the Liaisons video art exhibition, brainchild of Cristina Gilda Artese who took care of the organization and production togheter with curator Alessandro Trabucco and in partnership with Punto Enel Milan.
This is not the first time that arsprima has produced a video art exhibition. Noteworthy are Urban Attitudes, the exhibition about urban living which took place at the Loreto subway stop (MM1 red line) in Milan, and Thirteen light videos on the theme of light, which was presented in the project room of arsprima called Nur, meaning “light” in Arabic of and this was no coincidence.
And here are the names of the artists whose works are being exhibited: Francesco Arena, Isobel Blank, Alessandra Caccia, trio Di Bernardo-Rietti-Toppeta, Marco Fantini, duo Iaia Filiberti-Debora Hirsch, Irina Gabiani, Gaia Giani, Silvio Giordano, Francesca Manetta, Andrej Mussa, Christian Niccoli, Tiziana Pers, Francesca Romana Pinzari, Marco Travali, Alessia Zuccarello.
The event will start at 11 am with the project presentation in the amphitheatre of the Punto Enel Milan located in via Broletto 44, and it will be followed by the non-stop screening of the films until 6:30 pm.
A second intervention by the curators will take place at 4:30 pm.
The human figure has always been the main subject of visual art which has always been exploring the deepest emotions that have led mankind from the very beginning throughout their existence.
Different artistic languages modulate their expressive characteristics depending on the emotional intensity they want to describe, making their valuable contribution to a long research with a thousand shades.
Video art is the specific language we have chosen for this exhibition and this because we do believe that moving images can effectively convey all the emotions of both positive and negative – that are inextricably tied to the vicissitudes of links and relationships.
This video art exhibition is dedicated to human relations of any nature whatsoever. Some of the artists deal with and examine some extremely sensitive issues in a period marked by major and real difficulties in relationships. Some other tell us about their daily experiences of both by being attentive external observers or real main characters, or they portray the everyday life of the community where they live in.
The relation between human being and environment, the connection between humans and animals, the deep and profound link between a mother and her child, family relationships, the difficult and sometimes dangerous relationship with food, the sexual-spiritual union of a man and a woman, incommunicability and the total lack of relations, the visceral bond which may establish between an organ donor and the recipient of such a grand gesture of solidarity, friendship and social relations, ties and dependency relationships, faith and personal relationship with god. These are just some of the topics covered in the exhibition.
A second screening will take place on Tuesday 13 October 2015 at 6:30 pm on the occasion of the evening event dedicated to Leonardo Da Vinci and the food, organised by art critic Maria De Giorgio (who uses the pseudonym Calliope) and held at the Punto Enel Milan.
