Sharing Passions 2007 - UniCredit Group's collection of contemporary art on exhibition
The stage is set for the new 2007 lineup of Sharing Passions, the cycle of exhibitions of works from UniCredit Group's collection of contemporary art, curated by Professor Walter Guadagnini, President of the Research Commission of UniCredit & l'Arte and inaugurated in 2006.
With its passion-sharing theme, the exhibition's new season will offer the Group's customers and employees an opportunity for cultural exchange mediated by artistic languages that bring together different traditions, countries and values, as well as an opportunity to open up new windows of dialogue with diversity.
The Sharing Passions exhibition can already be visited in UniCredit Private branches in Padua, Pavia and Turin (via Arsenale).
On 20 September the UniCredit Private Banking branch in Venice (San Marco-Riva del Carbon) will host a photographic exhibition titled "Passato-Presente nell'opera di Mimmo Jodice" (Mimmo Jodice, past and present works).
Part of the UniCredit collection, these photographs were taken beginning in the 1980s and belong to some of her most famous cycles, from 'Mediterraneo' to 'Isolario'.
The artist will attend the inauguration of the exhibition.
And on 27 September the Naples branch of UniCredit Private Banking (Via Crispi) will inaugurate an exhibition titled "Punti di vista" (Points of view), a curatorial project in cooperation with the Umberto Di Marino Contemporary Art Gallery of Naples.
The exhibition in Naples represents the beginning of a collaboration with the Italian National Association of Galleries of Modern and Contemporary Art. The initiative will directly involve galleries with UniCredit Group in staging exhibitions, and the aim is to benefit both organisations while supporting Italian art by making new spaces available to artists.
As part of the cultural programme of UniCredit & Art, Sharing Passions supports young creative Italians and the values of innovation and social responsibility that UniCredit Group has always demonstrated.
Enclosed are the curatorial descriptions of the exhibitions in the programme.
