three Academies, three group shows
May 4 - 19, Accademia Carrara di Belle Arti, Bergamo
May 25 - June 9, Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Milan
June 15 - July 27, NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan
In May and July 2012, Viafarini DOCVA opens its exhibition space at Fabbrica del Vapore open for Art Academies, in order to feel the gap between non profit organizations and academic institutions. The project allows students to come in contact with an established platform of the art system as well as to show practices and educational methods, which are developed by realities with different backgrounds.
Between May and July three group shows will be organized by classes of three academies: Accademia Carrara di Belle Arti Bergamo, Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano.
Accademia Carrara di Belle Arti di Bergamo, with its director Alessandra Pioselli, decides to involve, Salvatore Falci and Eva Marisaldi, respectively painting and visual arts professors. The interdisciplinary nature of the teaching is clearly conveyed by the title Fuori dalla Gabbia di Faraday (Our of Faraday's Cage). Project’s core aim is to maintain the natural fluidity of a workshop, acting as a composed galaxy. Visions, experiences and project decisions merge together, thanks to a process in which students exhibit their personalities.
The class of Gianni Caravaggio at Brera Academy presents L'intimità dell'immagine come luogo in comune (the intimacy of the image as a commonplace), a reflection on the concept of Transparent Classroom: aiming at extending researches and considerations stimulating students to communicate with the art system. The artistic decisions of Caravaggio, (who at the beginning of his career started with “relational” works), need a critical reflection. The latter is about the meaning of image, sculpture, object in relation to the public and the fruition, experienced by the spectator.
Barbarie (barbarity), structured by Dipartimento di Arti Visive of NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, is the project presented by Marcello Maloberti and Adrian Paci and directed by Marco Scotini. It has to be interpreted as an attitude towards the experience of art, close and beyond the boundaries of ordinary languages. Through their works, students aim to give a natural look at what involves the impulsive human side. This comes from the real solicitude and the need, taking into consideration the preliminary dimension of desire, as primary dynamics of any artistic creations.
