Emanuele Gregolin __________________

Art Director of A60 Contemporary Art Space Today is undoubtedly difficult to find the glance and presence with serenity to relate to people: the fight against the invisible enemy which was and still is COVID-19, left invisible marks on each of us.

Each of them made a choice, took a conscious position of the fact that everything led to a responsibility. This is what we strongly want to underline: the artist, in his witness, must strongly feel the responsibility of his mark.

What will we remember of this period? What traces will remain? Each one inside will deeply try to give answers to these queries probably using some kind of artists forms. Art is the support, the structure, the body, the sensitive skin the artist chooses to create and to keep in touch with the world but also the cure to soothe life's problems.

Never like in present times, plurality of languages is able to create emotional registers and meditations used to unlock our inner windows. Video images allow us to revive new or forgotten situations while paintings and drawings make materials brighter. Photography instead confirms ambiguity in its "realism" while sculpture stimulates our need of depth and sensitive physicality.

This publication collects the valuable work of different artists who live and work in various countries such as Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, England, US, China. They decided to answer to our "Open Call" during this hard period by sending their work then chose by us. These artworks have been made with different techniques: drawings, paintings, engravings, sculptures, photos, installations and videos which drawn a sensitive and precious path that must be protected today more than ever. All artis replied to "La Vita dell'Arte" call proposed by us, feeling the urgency and concern everyone experienced in the last months.

"La Vita dell'Arte" hereafter told in this publication becomes a tiny but intensive journey made in proximity with artworks of some '900 living artists who we wanted to insert confirming the value of some shapes, marks and volumes in plural expressive languages.

Each artwork in its singular diversity represents evidence, position and register which indicates an exact thought. Some artists submitted artworks made before 2020 while others decided to create on purpose something closer to the suspended time we are experiencing.

Emanuele Gregolin __________________

Direttore Artistico di A60 Contemporary Art Space Appare certamente difficile riuscire a ritrovare con serenità lo sguardo e la presenza capaci di relazionarsi, oggi: la lotta che abbiamo dovuto sostenere nei confronti del nemico invisibile che era ed è, il Covid19, ha lasciato su di noi segni indelebili.

testimonianza, una posizione, un registro che indica un pensiero preciso. Alcuni artisti hanno voluto proporre alla nostra attenzione opere realizzate prima del 2020 mentre altri, hanno pensato di creare appositamente qualcosa che fosse ancora più aderente al tempo sospeso che tutti stiamo vivendo.

Cosa ricorderemo di tutto questo? Quali tracce rimarranno? Ognuno, dentro di sè, profondamente cercherà di dare risposte a questi interrogativi, utilizzando anche le forme della creazione artistica.

Ognuno ha compiuto una scelta, ha preso una posizione consapevole del fatto che tutto ciò portava ad una responsabilità.

L'arte è sempre il sostegno, la struttura, il corpo, la sensibile pelle che l'artista sceglie di creare per relazionarsi con il mondo ma è anche la cura forse più profonda e rassicurante che consente di lenire ciò che la vita offre.

Ecco, questo è ciò che vogliamo sottolineare con forza: l'artista nella sua testimonianza, nel gesto vivente della creazione, deve sentire fortemente la responsabilità del suo "segno". Mai come nel tempo che stiamo attraversando, la pluralità dei linguaggi è in grado di creare registri emozionali intensissimi e riflessioni capaci di aprire in noi finestre preziose: le immagini di un video ci riportano a vivere situazioni nuove o dimenticate, mentre la pittura ed il disegno fanno brillare la materia nella rivelazione del mistero della presenza del segno. La fotografia riafferma invece nel suo "realismo" l'ambiguità mentre la scultura stimola il nostro bisogno di profondità e sensibile fisicità.

Questa pubblicazione raccoglie il lavoro prezioso di differenti artisti che vivono e lavorano in luoghi molto diversi: Italia, Francia, Svizzera, Germania, Inghilterra, Stati Uniti, Cina. Hanno deciso di rispondere alla nostra "Open Call", in questo tempo difficile, inviando il loro lavoro da noi selezionato. Diverse sono le tecniche utilizzate per la realizzazione delle opere che qui abbiamo scelto e pubblicato: disegni, dipinti, incisioni, sculture, fotografie, installazioni e video tracciano un percorso prezioso e sensibile che va difeso, oggi più che mai.

"La Vita dell'Arte", la mostra qui raccontata nelle pagine di questa pubblicazione diventa così un piccolo ma intenso viaggio che si compie anche nella vicinanza con le opere di alcuni grandi artisti viventi del '900 che abbiamo voluto inserire riaffermando il valore di alcune forme, segni e volumi nella pluralità dei linguaggi espressivi.

Gli artisti hanno risposto al Bando "La Vita dell'Arte" da noi proposto sentendo profondamente l'urgenza e la preoccupazione che in questi mesi hanno toccato ognuno di noi; ogni opera nella sua diversità è una

Pengpeng Wang _______________

Project Director of A60 Contemporary Art Space "La Vita dell'Arte" is not just the exhibition theme but the thought and everybodys meditation on life in general. With the worlwide spread of Covid-19 in 2020 all people on hearth have been touched and, in this context, artists and artworks must give voice to this peculiar period. The artistic language looks like poems created by poets, stories written by writers or songs created by singers. The artist facing the emergency of our times needs emotional eyes to observe and register this era by transforming it into a unique artistic language, to show the result of his work.

media found a way for instant exhibitions on the net which gave artists sundry visualization channels: close to the usual art techniques we can now experience net art, 3D art, interactive art, electronic art, sound art, light art etc. We gave birth to new opportunities and saw the rapid rise of "millennials" artists. Art spread out: artists can express art definition and background epitome through different creative languages. Though artists in this exhibition come from different countries, we are all using a unique language: ART.

As Exhibition curator, together with Emanuele Gregolin, we selected 60 artworks of artists from Usa, China, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Turkey. They all interpret art and life definition through a rich artworks collection. Artists used different techniques such as drawings, paintings, sculptures, installations, photos, videos, sounds and other expressive forms. Art as connection, with the possibility of observing the artist sensibility and intimate world by simply watching his artwork. 2020 will be remembered by all of us as a very odd year where too many things happened: catastrophic pandemic, economic stops, political fluctuations, educational and cultural shutdowns. Nevertheless, contemporary art gives us the possibility to appreciate some positive aspects such as: world famous museums held online exhibitions by connecting artworks and public through the web, some social

Pengpeng Wang _______________

Direttore del progetto di A60 Contemporary Art Space "La Vita dell'Arte" non è solo il tema di questa mostra, ma anche il pensiero e la riflessione di tutti sulla vita. Con la diffusione del COVID19 in tutto il mondo nel 2020, tutti coloro che vivono nel nostro mondo sono stati colpiti e, in tale contesto, l'identità degli artisti e delle opere d'arte deve essere espressa in questo periodo speciale. Il linguaggio artistico è come la poesia creata dai poeti, come le storie di romanzi scritti da scrittori, o le canzoni create dai compositori. L' artista che affronta ciò che sta accadendo ai nostri tempi, ha bisogno di un paio di occhi sensibili per osservare e registrare questa Era, trasformandola in un linguaggio artistico unico, mostrando il risultato del suo lavoro.

accadute tantissime cose: la forte pandemia, gli arresti economici, le fluttuazioni politiche, l'arresto dei progetti culturali ed educativi e tutto ciò che ci circonda sta cambiando. Tuttavia, per l'arte contemporanea, questo periodo ci consente di vedere alcuni aspetti positivi, tra i quali ricordiamo: la maggior parte dei musei e le attività artistiche del mondo hanno iniziato a condurre mostre online, collegando la distanza tra le opere d'arte e il pubblico dell'arte attraverso Internet ed alcuni social media hanno anche lanciato un metodo di mostra istantanea sulla rete, che fornisce agli artisti canali di visualizzazione più diversi; per gli artisti, anche la forma della creazione sta cambiando e vicino alle consuete tecniche vediamo l'arte di rete, l'arte 3D, l'arte interattiva, l'arte elettronica, l'arte del suono, l'arte della luce, ecc. Abbiamo visto nascere tante cose tra cui anche la rapida ascesa di artisti "Millennials".

In questa mostra, come curatore insieme ad Emanuele Gregolin abbiamo selezionato 60 opere di artisti provenienti da diversi Paesi del mondo: Stati Uniti, Cina, Giappone, Regno Unito, Francia, Italia, Germania, Spagna, Messico, Turchia.

Lo sviluppo dell'arte è infinitamente esteso: gli artisti possono esprimere la definizione di arte e l'epitome dello sfondo dei tempi attraverso diversi linguaggi creativi. Sebbene gli artisti in questa mostra provengano da Paesi diversi, stiamo usando la stessa lingua: è l'Arte.

Nelle opere di questi artisti, viene interpretata la definizione di arte e vita, arte e vita per il pubblico dell'arte attraverso il ricco campionario di opere. Le tecniche utilizzate dai diversi artisti coinvolgono il disegno, la pittura, la scultura, l'installazione, la fotografia, il video, l'arte sperimentale, l'arte del suono e altre forme espressive. L'arte come mezzo collega ognuno di noi insieme dando la possibilità di osservare la profonda sensibilità ed il mondo interiore dell'artista attraverso l'osservazione della sua opera. Il 2020 rimarrà per ognuno di noi un anno particolare in cui sono

Criticism

Maria Chiara Wang _________________

Art Critic, The Eternal Present of Art A60 Contemporary Art Space, entitling the collective exhibition hosted in its spaces La Vita dell'Arte, takes a clear position with respect to all those theories on the 'Death of Art' that - from Hegel to the present day - have crossed the modern and contemporary art scene. The variety of works selected for the exhibition - different for the expressive means used and for the subjects represented - testifies how much art is more alive and reactive than ever: art does not die, but transforms itself, evolves, keeps pace with its time, linked to the 'here and now', to a dimension of eternal present. We could therefore assert that, in a purely chronological sense, art is always contemporary and that - embracing Heraclitus' philosophy of perpetual becoming - its fluidity represents a symptom of its own vitality: only that which is alive is dynamic and changes.

the present. Christine Macel, curator of the 57th Venice Biennale, has marked a positive and optimistic reversal of the trend compared to the critics and philosophers who preceded her and decreed the 'End of Art' or 'of certain Art' (Croce, Gentile, Argan, Adorno...). Viva Arte Viva, a title awarded by her at the 2017 International Art Exhibition, is a hymn to the vivacity of art. Today, in light of the crisis linked to the pandemic, her call to 'a humanism in which the artistic act is at once an act of resistance, liberation and generosity' is more relevant than ever. In conclusion, starting with the Avant-garde, continuing with Duchamp and Dadaism, passing through Pop Art and Arte Povera, to reach Digital Art, Art has never died, but has undergone an acceleration of its course and a shift of its position with respect to the border with reality, first approaching it, then overlapping it, and lately - thanks to new technologies - overcoming it.

Art is not only alive, but it gives life as it allows man to expand his potential and expand his limits, both at the level of thought (through the so-called 'classical' disciplines: painting and sculpture) and physically, thanks to the advent of digital and media art.

The only episteme therefore: as long as Man lives, Art will live too.

Likewise, from an expressive point of view, art as a language cannot die: languages are transformed, adapted, some terms become obsolete, others trivial, then there are neologisms, linguistic loans, poetic licenses... in short, man has always needed to express himself and to do so he time by time adopts the register and the methods that are most congenial to him. There are no dead languages, but languages that have evolved, vulgarized, whose matrix, however, remains indelible and whose traces are also evident in

Maria Chiara Wang _________________

Critico d'Arte, L’Eterno Presente dell’Arte A60 Contemporary Art Space, intitolando la mostra collettiva ospitata nei propri spazi La Vita dell’Arte, prende una posizione chiara rispetto a tutte quelle teorie sulla 'Morte dell'Arte' che - da Hegel ai giorni nostri - hanno attraversato il panorama artistico moderno e contemporaneo. La varietà delle opere selezionate per l'esposizione - differenti per i mezzi espressivi utilizzati e per i soggetti rappresentati - testimonia quanto l'arte sia più che mai viva e reattiva: l'arte non muore, ma si trasforma, si evolve, sta al passo col proprio tempo, legata al 'qui e ora', a una dimensione di eterno presente. Potremmo quindi asserire che, in senso puramente cronologico, l'arte è sempre contemporanea e che - abbracciando la filosofia del divenire perpetuo di Eraclito - la sua fluidità rappresenta un sintomo della propria vitalità: solo ciò che è vivo è dinamico e muta.

cui tracce sono evidenti anche nel presente. Christine Macel, curatrice della 57° Biennale di Venezia, ha segnato una positiva e ottimistica inversione di tendenza rispetto ai critici e ai filosofi che l'hanno preceduta e che hanno decretato la 'Fine dell'Arte' o di 'certa Arte' (Croce, Gentile, Argan, Adorno...). Viva Arte Viva, titolo da lei assegnato all'Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte del 2017, è un inno alla vivacità dell'arte. Oggi, alla luce della crisi legata alla pandemia, il suo richiamo a un umanesimo nel quale l'atto artistico è a un tempo atto di resistenza, di liberazione e di generosità risulta più che mai attuale. Concludendo, a partire dalle Avanguardie, proseguendo con Duchamp e il Dadaismo, passando per la Pop Arte e l'Arte Povera, per giungere all'Arte Digitale, l'Arte non è mai morta, bensì ha subito un'accelerazione del proprio corso e uno spostamento della propria posizione rispetto al confine con la realtà, da prima avvicinandosi ad esso, poi sovrapponendosene, e per ultimo - grazie alle nuove tecnologie - superandolo.

L'arte non solo è viva, ma dona vita in quanto permette all'uomo di ampliare le sue potenzialità e di espandere la propria limitatezza, sia a livello del pensiero (mediante le cosiddette discipline 'classiche': pittura e scultura), che fisico, grazie all'avvento dell'arte digitale e mediale.

Unico episteme quindi: finché vivrà l'Uomo, vivrà anche l'Arte.

Parimenti, da un punto di vista espressivo, l'arte come linguaggio non può morire: le lingue si trasformano, si adattano, alcuni termini diventano desueti, altri triti, banali, poi ci sono i neologismi, i prestiti linguistici, le licenze poetiche... insomma, l'uomo da sempre ha bisogno di esprimersi e per farlo adotta via via il registro e le modalità che gli sono più congeniali. Non esistono lingue morte, ma lingue che si sono evolute, volgarizzate, la cui matrice resta però indelebile e le

In 2017, Yu Zhang launched STUDIOĂœ and she approaches visual art with mixed reality installations and projections, sensor-based interactives, and computational arts. She roots her artistic intent in the symbolism of Asian traditions and transforms the artistic unpacking of drama and cultural signifiers into experiences of interactivity and connectivity that ultimately bridge artistic expression and audience experience. Starting from interactivity, she constructs layers of different connections between artist, artwork, audience, and the environment to express how far such connectivity can impact and reshape the structure and relations of objects, space, and time within a dynamic audience experience.

Zheng Bing

85

Zheng Bing was born in China and now lives in Florence. During her stay in China, she has traveled to all the provinces of the country. She is obsessed with dialogue with people from different cultures and different levels. She has always opposed the solidification of creative styles and explored the practical methods of multi-media art. Her works touch on sculpture, painting, installation, image and other art forms. She often focuses on the realities of everyday life, on those things that are marginal or not easily defined, looking for artistic expression between everyday experience and unspeakable perception.
