Arte Laguna Prize behind the scenes…

Yesterday night, March 17, 6 pm the ArteLagunaPrize ceremony took place in Venice, at the Nappe of the Arsenale..One year to plan this event, selecting 110 finalists between 7800 portfolios sent by artists from all over the world, divided in 6 categories (painting, sculpture, photo, virtual art, video&performance and under 25). Everybody in the city had the opportunity to participate at the vernissage, to meet artists, the jury, several curators and so on. Only 230 people from the art world were invited to a VIP Party (Art Red Party) in an ancient and beautiful location, Palazzo Zenobio, the old Armenian school placed in Dorsoduro. The “Mirrors Room” was decorated, filled with delicious food and good wine, a dj-set took place till late night and against all the formalities Art Vips went wild as well as the dancers..

All made by less than ten girls, from a little communications agency from the Venice mainland, which six years ago they decided to build a huge contest and an independent platform to promote contemporary art out of stong institutions like Biennale & Co. Excited to see everything growing up from the inner side..

Ieri, sabato 17 marzo alle ore 18.00 si è tenuta a Venezia, presso le Nappe dell’Arsenale, la cerimonia di premiazione del concorso internazionale Premio Arte Laguna. 110 artisti finalisti per sei categorie (pittura, scultura, fotografia, video&performance, virtual art e under 25). Molte persone hanno partecipato all’event ma solo pochi “eletti” sono stati invitati al Art Red Party organizzato nella splendida cornice di Palazzo Zenobio nel sestriere di Dorsoduro. Una location da favola che sembra essersi salvato dal passaggio del tempo, buon cibo e ottimo vino, accompagnato dal dj-set che ha mosso le gambe dell’Art System non solo lagunare..

Una splendida occasione di vedere come una piccola agenzia di comunicazionedell’antroterra veneziano sia riuscita in sei anni a costruire e a far crescere un evento di richiamo internazionale, piattaforma ideale per l’arte contemporanea estranea ai canali privilegiati e conosciuti come la Biennale, etc. E’ stato bello vedere il tutto dall’interno, la determinazione e la forza delle donne di Arte Laguna.
