Twenty six young artists from different countries are going to “land” in Modena (Italy) in the expository venue of the former Sant’Agostino Hospital, on the occasion of International Departure: Gate 10, a show promoted by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena, devoted to the students of some of the most important European institutions dealing with Photography and Fine Arts, from 12 June to 11 July 2010.
On display there will be the works of 26 students selected among 11 institutions of 6 different European countries, which distinguish themselves in the field of education.
The exhibition, curated by Filippo Maggia, intends to emphasize the work of young artists who are approaching the international art scene, giving them the opportunity to exhibit in an institutional contest and to confront themselves with other European “colleagues”. This is in line with the educational aims of Fondazione Fotografia, the cultural project promoted by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio in Modena in parallel with the creation of a collection of contemporary photographs.
