E’ CARTA! Mini Contemporary Papers in Italy
2 aexhibition (11-25 February 2017) Spazio Mantegna, Milano
1 exhibition (October 2016 – January 2017) Cassina De’ Pecchi (MI)
The human expression through paper artworks, despite receiving limited recognition nowadays, dates back centuries, including drawings or paintings, engravings or watercolours. We believe this form of art deserves much better attention, because paper it’s a live thing that perfectly captures the emotions one wants to express. The small form of the paper sheet enables great concentration on the part of the artist and put him in close contact with his authentic, intimate technical and conceptual possibilities.
This exhibition is dedicated to paper artworks, with the aim of dignifying its use, which has accompanied the projects of great artists over the centuries. The scope of the exhibition is to encourage and stimulate the use of paper as a medium of expression and the inter-cultural dialogue. The event is curated by “Associazione Artistica La Forza del Segno”,and “ACADA”,“Spazio Mantegna”, upon auspices of the Municipality of Cassina de’ Pecchi (Milan, Italy) and by the Lombardy Region.
