Growing Roots: Celebrating 15 years of the Furla Art Award

Palazzo Reale

05 Mar 201512 Apr 2015

The retrospective Growing Roots – 15 Years of the Furla Art Award is a celebratory event that revisits the ten editions of the prestigious Furla Art Award, recounting a recent chapter in Italian art history through the work of its winners: Sislej Xhafa, Lara Favaretto, Sissi, Massimo Grimaldi, Pietro Roccasalva, Luca Trevisani, Alberto Tadiello, Matteo Rubbi, Chiara Fumai, as well as the duo Maria Iorio and Raphaël Cuomo, the winners of the 2015 edition. The exhibition unfolds through the rooms of the Appartamento dei Principi in Palazzo Reale, which weave a dialogue between the artists’ works and reflect the multifaceted Italian art scene as it increasingly reaches out to a globalized and digitally-driven world.

Painting, sculpture, installations, video, performance, sound and color, alongside a mix of past and futuristic materials are all part of the works on display, telling both the story of the Premio Furla and of the social and cultural context from which this art has emerged.

The retrospective is accompanied by a catalogue from Mousse Publishing, with essays by Chiara Bertola and Giacinto Di Pietrantonio that tell the story of the prize and its winners, and a section devoted to the finalists of the tenth edition, which has just come to a close.
