«One of the really fascinating things about music is that technically- in a very literal way- it doesn’t exist. A painting, a sculpture or a photograph can physically exist, while music is just air hitting the eardrum in a slightly different way than it would randomly» Moby

Unforgettable Jan Fabre

Even though contemporary art can offer us a hell of new techniques and forms we still can’t take our eyes from the paintings of old masters. Their masterpieces are awash with nostalgic memories stored in each brush stroke, layer of paint and shadow of color. Their emotional intensity and sincerity hypnotize and inspire. Many of the old masters mixed blood into their paint, crushed human bones to make white paint and made enormous efforts to get a sky blue color. Many of them painted instinctively. Natural emotions just can’t be imitated by synthetics, technology and new media as only strong feelings can provoke this magical and sometimes even demonic magnetism that captures our hearts today.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jan Fabre has explored this phenomenon even further. The Flemish artist who would paint with his own blood in 80s presents his experiment with raw materials here in Venice. The strong and fragile at the same time, bone and glass, will constitute a new body of art. Don’t miss JAN FABRE. GLASS AND BONE SCULPTURES 1977–2017.

1984

Befriended by the hippies and non-conformists he leads a street art movement which is known for its oppositional context. Inspired by Egyptian frescoes and Russian icon-painting his alien to the Soviet system style has developed into the political dialogue symbolically transmitted by comics and costume-art performance.
2017
Italy. Venice. Palazzo Nani Bernardo.
A splendid baroque palace hosts a cosmic exposition of a top-ranked Russian artist, Gosha Ostretsov, whose artworks can be found in Charles Saatchi and Roman Abramovich’s collections.

45 Winners

80,408 images. 5,034 photographers. 126 different countries.

45 photographers – winners and brave ‘has-beens’.

RS Art Advisory visited the 60th World Press Photo Contest in Rome. An emotional and pushing for debate insight of what has been shaking the world during the last 5 years and how it influences the present society. How people survive and how nature struggles. The exhibition makes you first think of what is over-the-horizon and even beyond common sense. You will not admire bright colors or the cute creatures of our planet. You will face diverse feelings and discover the reality which certain people create and other people struggle. On the other hand, the photographers introduce to us some undiscovered corners of our world and the way people have their moment and enjoy simple things. Amazing.

Worthwhile to experience the admirable journalistic aspect at Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome – a saying much exhibition which is itself a cross-section of the present day society.
