For this reason, as I convey my congratulations to the winners of the Premio Arte Laguna painting prize, I am also keen to address the thousands in the running who did not receive an accolade on this occasion.
If there are winners, there must be losers and this is the way the world works - not so much a bad thing. Whether or not you hold out hope for winning another time, at least you took initiative now, you wanted your work to be seen and it is precisely this communicative impulse that defines our understanding of art. Art prizes provide a vital medium through which you can transmit your heartfelt messages, and who knows how they might ring bells for those, especially us judges, lucky enough to receive them? In short, be of good courage and please join me in thanking Premio Arte Laguna for providing such an opportunity.
Secondo le leggi, euforiche e in prospettiva, che questa repubblica della pittura richiedeva. The Republic of Painting Arte Laguna Prize is for a critic a wide and diverse opportunity to test the degree of advancement, thoughtfulness and pervasiveness of an artistic means of expression: in my case, painting. We think of painting, and I can say we rightly do after this first-hand experience, as the most widespread and shared artistic expression, and therefore the most layered, but also inevitably the most complex one, in relation to the task of defining it in its "contemporaneity": a huge palimpsest of memory and sensitivity, on the one hand, and a challenge to the possible re-writing, to the refined re-invention of intellectual codes and formal data, when not found, on the other.
Observing almost two thousand artists who have decided to paint today, and the over five thousand paintings made by these artists, who deserve my thanks, involves a fruitful plunge into the contradictory energy of an expressive medium that is astounding in its ability to attract and, at the same time, in the inherent difficulty of interpreting and stimulating it, once again, from the inside: abstraction and figuration, geometric-analytical lines and re-expressionisms, pop imagery and conceptual condensation, photographic-cinematographicsocial media matrix as well as the intimate relationship with the syntagms of sign, shape, and color.
Everything coexists with its opposite, and next to its counterpart on these canvases.

How to choose, what to be amazed of, which questions to ask yourself, which direction to take According to the euphoric and prospective laws that this Republic of painting demanded. Contemporary photography emerges as a path through its contradictory relationship with the world and with the sense of reality. Art, architecture, landscape, journalism, documentary, advertisement are just some aspects of the photographic languages inside this discipline. The kaleidoscopic complexity of this medium has strongly changed people's self-perception and their own perception of reality.
So, how has photographic art changed?

And how did it contribute to the transformation of the world of art in the age of social networks, wide-ranging webs and global participation? Nowadays the distinctiveness of photography is contaminated with other media, by updating itself and renewing its status, pushing boundaries and challenging the commonplace. Rather than 'photography', we should talk about 'photographic images', in order to define a term which goes beyond impressed paper. This peculiarity is able to express today the complexity of contemporary languages. The photography as it used to be considered till a decade ago, conceived as a rectangular piece of paper with an image printed on it through a chemical process, is dying out.
The photographic image, as a universal language, survives and it will keep on having a privileged relationship with reality. The complexity of the liquid age we are living in is perfectly reflected in contemporary photography, composed by the visual appearance of the world. By expressing this complexity, photography should be able to convey a direct experience with floating and elusive subjects, provided we know how to recognize them. The selected authors for this exhibition have been able to capture the world from their privileged position, an observatory which expands towards the city and the society, in order to encompass a place, a time, a network of cultural relationships through images and visions.
Created from an idea of Arte Laguna Studio and Cultural Association MoCA, Arte Laguna Prize, a contest dedicated to visual arts, has been offering since concrete opportunities to talents, by promoting and spreading contemporary art, and emerging as an interpreter of the contemporary Zeitgeist.
Arte Laguna Prize has grown over time, building year after year relationships with international jurors chosen among directors of museums and foundations, curators and art critics changing at every edition, with the goal to select the finalists whose works are exhibited at Venice Arsenale, a prestigious showcase for contemporary art. Arte Laguna Prize has built a strong network of collaborations with Foundations, Museums, Galleries, Art Residencies and companies, turning them into concrete opportunities of growth and of launch of the professional career of artists.
In this way, a system of relationships made of people and ideas has been created, an open system that is always looking towards new horizons. La Galleria art re. ART re.
