International Contemporary Art exhibition
From the Latin EMERGENTEM, to come to the surface, to come out - arising, deriving
This exhibition aims at becoming a true network for emerging creativity, triggering active participation and a direct connection among public, youngsters and successful masters, posing itself as a possibility for encounter and discussion with other artists, of interaction with the public to understand how it poses itself before a work of art. All fundamental elements for the artist in order to improve himself, spreading his intentions and his message to people, increasing awareness of his own means and his potentialities.
We're not just addressing to the "youngsters", is to say to the ones who are moving their first steps in this branch, breaking out of the anonymity of their studios to peep out in the art market and be successful for the first time. On the contrary, we also address who - already successful - wants to born again in an artistic sense, trying out something new, challenging and outdoing himself.
We all can and must EMERGE. Not only when we “start" but even more when “we are on the run".
We must COME OUT, ARISE, remembering that the artist, not the artwork, is the great myth of our times.
Mr MAD says: "I’d love to live as an emerging all my life, to be vital nourishment for the changing future". Exactly: every day we assimilate new techniques, guidelines, disciplines; science and technology mix up with art to improve our way of life. These innovations are brought – as the word itself explains – by the act of introducing novelties, new methods, provoking alterations and transformations that modify, alter, improve and refresh a pre-existing context.
Don't go where the path may lead. Go, instead, where no path exists and leave a trail.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
PS: If someone, being wrong, ever told you that in order to be successful you must have a name, while laughing you must respond that you don't only have a name, but also a surname.
