Geometries of Power, workshop with Venice Academy of Fine Arts (Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia)
In April 28th, 2015, the gallery space A plus A presented an exhibition of works done by a group of artists during the workshops Geometries of Power. The initiative was curated by Carlo Di Raco, Miriam Pertegato, Nebojša Despotović e Aleksander Velišček in collaboration with the Venice Academy of Fine Arts (Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia), organised at the end of March as part of the exhibition Gulivers, by Aleksander Velišček. The question of power is an always current subject and it was the starting point where the following group of artists worked from: Francesca Dall’Antonia, Anna Boscolo, Clelia Cadamuro, Giorgia Cereda, Eric Gerini, Ilaria Fasoli, Alice Montagner, Federica Partinico, Barbara Prenka, Lin Shan, Danilo Stojanovic, Maddalena Tesser, Federica Zanlucchi e Andrea Zallot.
For over a week, during the painting and drawing workshop, the artists have got to deal with a subject related to the imaginary of the historical/sociopolitical power of their home country. It was a stimulating debate enriched by the presence of participants from different countries such as Slovenian, Italian, Chinese, Kosovars, Croats, Serbs. This aspect allowed us to understand how nuances of power change, transform and manifest differently from country to country – results that were on display from April 28th at A plus A gallery.
