Seoul will be the first stop of group art show ‘We Love Art. Vision and Creativity Made in Italy’ in its international tour, opening to the public October 27 2021.
For We Love Art, art critic Ludovico Pratesi and curator Marco Bassan selected 8 Italian artists under-35, who accomplished an original artistic project. Also, each artist developed his/her project by actively collaborating with of one of the 8 companies owned by Cassa Depositi e Prestiti: Open Fiber, Terna, Eni, Webuild, CDP Immobiliare, Snam, Tim, Ansaldo Energia.
Organized by the Italian Cultural Institute in Seoul, in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and ICE-Seoul, the exhibition will be on view in the premises of High Street Italia, a location significantly chosen for its link to the spirit of the project, as WeLoveArt was conceived to underline the connection between Italian contemporary art and Made in Italy, both considerable Italian assets. In fact, High Street Italia was specifically created with the purpose of promoting both Made in Italy and Italian culture in South Korea.
South Korean audience will have the opportunity to enjoy for the first time the works of artists Benni Bosetto, Giulia Cenci, Tomaso De Luca, Lulù Nuti, Amedeo Polazzo, Alice Ronchi, Giulio Saverio Rossi, Namsal Siedlecki; the exhibit will consist of different artistic media such as sculptures, paintings and photographs. Finally, a video included in the show will describe how the work of the artists evolved in the collaboration with facilities and staff of the different companies, thus giving an entire new meaning to the relationship between art and enterprise.
