The Italian Cultural Institute of Madrid takes part to the 17th edition of the Italian Contemporary Art Day, an event promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in collaboration with AMACI (Associazione dei Musei d’arte Contemporanea Italiani) and with the Ministry of Culture. In this framework, the Institute presents ‘En Flor‘ by the Italian artist Giuseppina Giordano.
Named ‘queen of flowers‘ by ancient Greek poet Sappho, the rose has a rich history of symbolic meanings—notably love, beauty, and purity. Italian artist Giuseppina Giordano’s latest installation offers an intimate and multisensory exploration of the rose, reminding us of the allure and power of its associations.
The artist will present her work during an online meeting, in a conversation with Marialuisa Pappalardo, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute in Madrid, and Alessandro Ruggera, coordinator of the ‘Cantica21’ for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Giuseppina Giordano is one of the artists selected by the ‘Cantica21‘ Public Notice, launched by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture in September 2020, with the aim of supporting and enhancing the production of works by emerging and established Italian artists, exhibiting them worldwide in the Italian Cultural Institutes, Embassies and Consular Offices.
‘Corolle‘, Giuseppina Giordano’s artistic project selected by the “Cantica21” Evaluation Commission, will be exhibited at the Italian Cultural Institute in Madrid in March 2022.
