Boundless Beauty | from 13 to 22 January, Bologna

from 13 to 22 January 2024 at Dueunodue exhibition space, Bologna (Italy) International collective Boundless Beauty

Nartwork aps has decided to dedicate 2024 to the investigation of beauty through a series of collective exhibitions connected by this common thread. An homage to beauty, not just the strictly aesthetic one, but also a search that goes beyond conventions and finds beauty even in the storm, in the power of a single stroke, or a whirlwind of colors that gives us the freedom to be authentic, authors of the way we look at the world and contribute to its creation through our presence.

Boundless Beauty is the first exhibition in this series that questions the meaning of authentic beauty, the existence of objective beauty, and the influence of cultural constructs and emotional stories on the viewer’s perception of beauty. Each work on show is accompanied by a QR Code that collects the author’s thoughts and reflections.

The exhibition welcomes works by 33 contemporary artists from 14 different countries, all part of the international network created by the Nartwork association, which aims to create a cultural network to promote artists and contemporary art in all its forms and expressions. The Association currently has over 200 members from around the world.

The exhibition has received the moral patronage of the Campania Region, the Emilia Romagna Region, the Suor Orsola Benincasa University, and the Alsob Association

The catalog curated by Nartwork, includes critical contributions by art historians Maria Aurelia Catalano Rossi Danielli and Gianpasquale Greco. The graphic project is curated by Christian Luigi Russo; the exhibition project by Giulio Bellan.

The opening took place on Saturday 13 January, photo album on the facebook page of Nartwork aps.
