11th to 17th October 2019
The Mindfulness exhibition challenges the artists to break down the walls of fears, illusions, superficiality to arrive at the essence of reality, to appreciate and appreciate it as it is here and now.
For Jon Kabat, Mindfulness means to care attention, but in a particular way “with intention, in the present, not in a judgmental manner”. To cultivate a full presence in the experience of the moment, a way to being in full, to go to the depths of things and into themselves here and now. An antidote to modern fears, fear of encountering reality in an increasingly digital way in which we become uninhabited to be here and now, always connected with another place and time, where you feel the need to show yourself continuously through social media but unfortunately just in a superficial way.
The opening is due on Friday 11th October at 5 pm and it will be followed by a buffet of a great welcome.
The exhibition takes place from 11th to 17th October in the following hours: 12:00 am to 6 pm.
Hoxton253 is one of the most important galleries based in East London in Hoxton (zone 1) close to the “City”, the economic heart of London.
I thank the ass.ne Nartwork for this important initiative at the Maschio Angioino – Castel Nuovo. We must be present as institutions on the territories, promoting the talent and creativity of young people. Naples is the city of art and culture and from here we have to start again for the development of the South.
I thank Lucia Valenzi, president of the Valenzi Foundation who is always sensitive and attentive to these issues. I thank Prof. Maurizio Vitiello who with art and professionalism managed to “tell” the exhibition.
Finally, I thank the Consul of the Republic of Tunisia @Beya Ben Abdelbaki Fraoua for his presence and for his work.
Promoting and enhancing young talented artists is the “mission” of this initiative, thanks to the unveiling of their creative potential on a theme, not easy, specified by the interpretation of change, understood as a possible renewal movement for the future of the environment and man.
With this exhibition we can almost grasp the concrete vitality of coming together to deal with art, to seriously question ourselves and to better confront ourselves.
President of Fondazione Valenzi
With their association and the opening of this exhibition the young women from Nartwork are breaking down two common thoughts.The first is the opinion which diminish young men and women,as unable to take initiative and be independent from their families. But here we see them proudly joining their forces and put them at work for art,that one that,as italians and neapolitans they have “sniffed” as children and now they want to deeply breath in,especially contemporary art.
The second common thought is that you cannot make a living from culture.The truth is that is quite far from reality auctions and fairs are examples of how art can be profitable.Our ladies here have learnt how to manage and channel economical resources to create opportunity for themselves and the artists.Those managerial skill together with their love for beauty will take them far,and will open bigger and bigger opportunities for artists.
