The exhibition Acrobazie and the roundtables Acrobatic Mind: Experiences, reflections and discussions on the relationship between art and the brain
From May 4 to June 4, 2011, the Acrobazie 12345 exhibition will be on display at the Biomedical Residence University of Pavia. The show will also grant visitors the ability to explore the relationship between art and the brain with three exhibition-specific roundtables.
Since 2004, UniCredit's support for Acrobazie, created by Elisa Fulco, has been based upon its conviction of the therapeutic, social and artistic value of the project. The current exhibition is a retrospective of works from the Atelier di Pittura Adriano e Michele and from the UniCredit Art Brut Collection, also on display at UniCredit Private Banking's via L. Porta 14 branch in Pavia.
On Wednesday, May 4 at 6 pm the first roundtable, "The experience of the Atelier di Pittura Adriano e Michele di San Colombano al Lambro," will be held together with the artist Flavio Favelli, the curator Elisa Fulco and the psychiatrists Giovanni Foresti and Rosangela Scioli. Directly following this session, the "Acrobazie 12345" exhibition will be officially opened.
On Thursday, May 19 at 6 pm will be held the lectio magistralis "The grammar of visual art", presided over by Professor Lamberto Maffei, President of the National Academy of the Lincei and Professor Emeritus at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa.
The final roundtable, "The therapeutic alliance between art and psychiatry," will take place on Thursday, May 26 at 6 pm together with the participation of the art critic Laura Tonani and psychiatrists Francesco Barale, Giorgio Bedoni and Fabrizio Pavone. Moreover, this roundtable will include the showing of a video of the Carte Poetiche project, managed by the experimental laboratory of Artistic Therapeutics at the Policlinico San Matteo di Pavia's Department of Psychiatry.
The exhibition will be open from 4 - 7 pm Monday to Saturday and from 10:30 - 12:30 pm and 4 - 7 pm on Sundays.
All three roundtables will be held at the Aula Magna "Maria Antonietta Sairani" of the Biomedical Residence University, via L. Giulotto 12, Pavia.
