Open Studio

Open Studio | HIGHLIGHTS | Valentina Furian and Letizia Scarpello | October 18th at 6.00 pm.

On October 18th at 6.00 pm on the occasion of the Open Studio, hosted at GIACOMO, the exhibition space of Accademia di belle arti G. Carrara, the winning artists will present the artistic project realized during their stay on the territory.

HIGHLIGHTS is a residency program, created by The Blank in partnership with FARE - with the support of MiBAC and SIAE, as part of the initiative “Sillumina – Copia privata per i giovani, per la cultura”, aimed at artists resident in Italy under 35. The projects were selected by the international jury composed of Domenico De Chirico (independent curator and artistic director of DAMA), Stefano Raimondi (curator, The Blank President) and Driant Zeneli (artist and artistic director of Mediterranea18).

Valentina Furian (Venice, 1989, lives and works between Venice and Rome). Her research develops starting from processes of re-elaboration of reality through the insertion of forms deviated from the custom. She is interested in the reappropriation, through the human taming of nature. The artist's interest also aims at creating new places, modeling the space on a sculptural level and creating new enviroments.

Letizia Scarpello (Pescara, 1989, lives and works in Milan). She studied Costume and Scenography at the Brera Academy of Milan after a three-year degree in Fashion Design at the Istituto Marangoni in London. Analyzing the textile world in relation to human attitudes and social environments, she gradually focused her attention on the idea of ​​relationship, also inspired by dancing, which she practiced for more than ten years, the theater and the performing arts.
