"Austen Art Skopje" is part of an international group exhibition in Venice
A group exhibition titled "Art unites the world" of international artists is set up at the Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello in Venice from May 20 to June 24, as a parallel event to the Venice Architecture Biennale.
Art has the power to overcome language and cultural barriers. Unlike language, which can be a source of division and misunderstanding, art is a universal language that can be understood and exchanged by people from all walks of life.
With that idea in the Albrizzi-Capello palace in Venice, the group exhibition entitled "Art unites the world" was set up. The artists Clara Afonso (Portugal), Patrizia Casagranda (Germany), Arleta Čehić (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Julia Djachenko (Russia), Helga Elben (Germany), Kenrio Hara (Japan), Marko Kusmuk (Serbia), Vladimir Martinov are participating in the exhibition. (Russia), Ana Montanaro (Italy), Marija Pavlovska (S Macedonia / USA), Dima Suhov (Russia), Ulan (Russia), and the guest of the exhibition is Micko Mice Junkulovski (S Macedonia).
The organizers of the exhibition are the German-Italian Society - ACIT (Associazione Culturale Italo - Tedesca) in Venice, based on the idea of Mariana Gnezdilova from Russia and in cooperation with "Okxsa Projects" (Oksana Žudina Bogo, president and founder), "Osten art Skopje" ( Cornelia Konesca, director) and "Snow Gallery" Moscow (Aleksandar Filipov, director).
– The paintings exhibited in the beautiful Palazzo Albrizzi-Cappello, located in the heart of international art – Venice, show works representing a wide range of styles and traditions, from abstraction to figuration, from traditional art to pop art. Despite their diversity, all of these works share a common thread: they communicate a universal language that speaks to the human condition, no matter where we come from or what we believe. Each image in this exhibition shows how art can be a catalyst for connection, communication and understanding. Through the universal language of color, form and emotion, these works invite us to see the world through new eyes and to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the world we share. In a world that often feels divided on so many levels, the Art Unites the World exhibition reminds us of the power of art, despite everything, to bring us together and create a sense of community.
We hope visitors will leave this exhibition inspired, uplifted and connected to a global community of art lovers who share our passion for creativity and beauty. Because, finally, through unification, art will save the world! - points out Cornelia Konesca, curator and director of "Osten Art Skopje".
The exhibition is realized under the auspices of the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Milan, in cooperation with AGIMUS Venice, and the Goethe Institute Italy has made a special contribution to the realization of the project.
