Spazio Thetis at the historic Arsenal of Venice starts a new artistic adventure.
Artists, Curators, Gallerists, here are the FRIENDS united by a passion and a frequentation that give the title to this exhibition conceived and promoted by
The protagonists of FRIENDS have accompanied with their works the more than twenty-year history of Spazio Thetis and now they have been invited to share the spaces of the garden located in the North Arsenal with new works, one of the most fascinating places in the city that in the period of the Visual Arts Biennale is, along the Giardini, the nerve center of the cultural life of the City. Few the limits imposed at each artist, free to express himself through his particular sensitivity and to follow, therefore, different poetics and methods of implementation. The exhibition will focus on works that call into question the existing thought categories and inviting to new readings, it will join the permanent collection which includes among others: “The third paradise ” by Michelangelo Pistoletto, “Todi Columns” di Beverly Pepper, “The man who measures the clouds” di Jean Fabre. An art that comes from the tendency to see the world from different points of view , in other words taking into consideration apparently contradictory and incompatible concepts and to manoeuvre in different ways for interpreting the world around us. This artistic-cultural orientation seems the best way to confirm that Spazio Thetis still represents, “hic et nunc(right here, right now)”, the “place of the possible ”, the “breeding ground” of a research where every artist really feels free to express himself. Spazio Thetis represent one of the most interesting opportunities to promote the aspirations of the contemporary.
