THE GLORIOUS NURAGIC PAST AND A FUTURE WAITING TO BE WRITTEN
For the first time in Sardinia, an event that merges the charm of Nuragic culture and the vitality of contemporary art, welcoming national and international audience.
The event creates a dialogue between the glorious past of Nuragic civilization and Contemporary Art from the latter half of the XX century to today, welcoming whoever is attracted by the tradition of Sardinia, or simply by beauty, taking an itinerary that includes archaeological sites, wild nature and also modernity, passing through paintings and photography exhibitions. The initiative will take place in the heart of Sarcidano area, involving archaeologists and the artists themselves (established and emergent ones), including the opportunity to take guided tours of archaeological sites and exhibitions.
Thursday, December 28th
10.30, Centro Sociale Culturale, corso Vittorio Emanuele, Isili
Local institutions and event organisers introduce the audience to the whole initiative with the conference
Artecracy.eu: Contemporary Art in Sardinia.
16.30, Monte Granatico, Isili
The exhibition ‘Figurative, abstract and new figuration’ passes through some major moments of the Italian painting of last century, with the presence of some international established and some young, emergent artists for whom the critics have already spent nice words. The importance of this exhibition, beside the intrinsic value of each artwork, is given by the opportunity to focus, for once, on different, unusual moments of Italian art history, represented by artists whose communication quality has nothing to envy from the greats, but that have been somehow shadowed by the more celebrated ones. Each artwork represents a period or a key moment, and all the paintings together can be linked to recall a time of great innovations
