NATURE IN ART: FROM THE ROMANTICS TO SEGANTINI

The representation of nature in art has always offered artists the opportunity to describe the world and our relationship with the planet we live on.

The history of art is full of works depicting beautiful landscapes, but it is also full of stories in which Nature and its elements are personified by deities, taken from classical culture, that allow us to understand our connection with the world.
I recently visited an exhibition (details at the bottom of this post) that took me on a journey of discovery of nature in art and offered me the chance to understand how nature became so important in the 19th century.

VENICE BIENNALE 2022 TICKETS, PAVILIONS, SIDE EVENTS

Venice Biennale 2022, tickets, pavilions, collateral events, what to see and where to go.
This is it, the Art Biennale, after the 2020 stop due to the pandemic, is about to reopen its doors and is ready to show the new trends of contemporary art.

Every two years, the world’s most important and prestigious international art exhibition presents a theme to reflect on and allows the various nations of the world to describe their point of view on art, the world and creativity, always sparking off a battle between those who claim that the previous Biennale was the best or that this is the best Biennale ever.

The only thing that is certain is that since 1895 the Biennale has been attracting the most important contemporary artists to Venice, provoking discussion, debate, scandal, protest and inspiration.
This is why you need a guide, or rather a survival kit, to help you find your way around and immediately know where to go and what to see.

In this post you will find all the updates on the Venice Biennale 2022 what to see, where to go and what to do 😉

THE PLOT OF TIME IN THE WORKS OF NADIA NESPOLI

Artist Nadia Nespoli, in 2019, entrusted incarcerated men and women with skeins of cotton yarn and asked each to make a canvas, never unraveling it while doing so.

Each of the works of art bears the name of the person who created it and constitutes one of the elements of what can be considered a true collective performance.
