UniCredit STUDIO Milan presents Carte Blanche #4: 104 giorni - 5 ore - 32 minuti
104 giorni - 5 ore - 32 minuti (140 days - 5 hours - 32 minutes) its the title of the fourth exhibition of the Carte Blanche series which will run from June 22 to September 9, 2011 at UniCredit STUDIO Milan, the exhibition space inside the UniCredit branch in Cordusio square.
The curator Francesca Pagliuca, in line with the STUDIOs mission that aim to accompany young artists in the beginning of their professional growth, presents the work of two young Italian artists: Manuel Scano and Serena Vestrucci
The exhibition title, 104 giorni - 5 ore - 32 minuti (140 days - 5 hours - 32 minutes), it is literally the count down from the time the artists and the curator started to work on it. The choice of this title was made to underline the idea that the exhibition is not just the show of some artworks but it is itself a process, a growing organism that - just like the young artists - changes thanks to the comparison and sharing of different ideas.
The Carte Banche #4 catalogue includes, for the first time, two special projects made up on purpose by the artists that make the publishing unique.
Thanks to the STUDIO exhibition spaces we are now opening up across Europe, a diverse range of young artists are receiving greater visibility. Some of these spaces are inside our Group's branches as we believe there is a benefit to bringing cultural exhibitions to locations beyond museums and cultural institutions.
Art is a language that allows us to share different experiences. It also provides a means for an international Group like ours to interact with the many different communities in which we live and work. UniCredit has long supported young talent, and we believe that the work of these young artists generates the kind of energy and new ideas that are essential to sustainable development.
