Mostre a Venezia: Détournement Venise 2010

Opera di Federica Gonnelli

In Venice, starts the new edition of Détournement Venise 2010, and we provide more details from the italian press release: / A Venezia, inizia la nuova edizione di Détournement Venise 201, e vi riportiamo meggiori dettagli dal comunicato stampa ufficiale:

“Come già nel 2009 l’itinerario di Détournement Venise ci invita a Palazzo Albrizzi, sede dell’Associazione Culturale Italo-Tedesca a Cannaregio che accoglierà nell’arco dei mesi estivi tre mostre d’arte contemporanea. Sabato 12 giugno alle ore 17.30 il ciclo si apre con due artisti affermati nel circuito internazionale, Tullio Brunone e Irmfried Windbichler, e con la giovane promettente Federica Gonnelli. Fare arte in una sede storica, rendere visibile il filo resistente che lega nel tempo e nello spazio la mente umana, mirare alla lettura della storia come indispensabile trama e tessuto sul quale ordire i percorsi contemporanei nell’arte. E ancora, riunire i creativi di generazioni ed espressioni diverse negli stessi luoghi espositivi, senza porre un limite dettato dalla loro età fisica e professionale. Sono questi i principi di base di Elisabeth Sarah Gluckstein per Detournement Venise che svolge ormai la sua seconda edizione con nuovi scenari sparsi nel tessuto urbano di Venezia.”
