Venice time case’s fourth stop at Studio d’Arte Raffaelli

"Venice Time Case"’s fourth stop will take place at Studio d’arte Raffaelli in Trento. The city will also host the exhibition’s spin off "Venice in Cellar", at Cellar contemporary. "Venice Time Case" is an itinerant and non-profit project curated by Luca Massimo Barbero. Five Fly Case suitcases will carry fifty works created for this occasion by fifty emerging contemporary artists from the Venetian area. The suitcases and the works will travel across Europe and will ultimately be acquired by a contemporary art’s museum. The artists involved in "Venice Time Case" are all active in the venetian area and often linked to the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia.

Venice has always been a place historically characterized by art and culture but many of its contemporary artistic realities are often ignored or hidden, yet worthy of attention. "Venice Time Case" is an opportunity to bring together and rediscover artists who work in groups, in shared studios, through collective and individual experiences. This project was born in order to discuss the "hidden vitality of art in the large city between land and sea", in an international context. "Venice Time Case" offers an overall look at the fifty selected works, creating a space of exchange of ideas and contamination, in line with Raffaelli’s philosophy.

The institutional exhibition will take place at Wolkenstein Palace, where the contemporary artworks will dialogue with the beautiful sixteenth-century frescoes painted on the vault of the gallery.
The exhibitions will open simultaneously in the two galleries on Thursday, March the 16th, (starting at 5.30 PM) and introduced by the curator Luca Massimo Barbero and some of the artists involved.
